We watched it last night. I'm still having nightmares and it's now the middle of the day. Sheesh!

I haven't seen it, but any movie with Nicolas Cage in gives me nightmares.  [:)]

I admit I'm not a great fan either! It's funny. I actually quite like Kevin Costner movies, and nobody seems to like him at all.

I do...

What was this movie about?

It's science fiction (I hope!). It's quite gripping. I don't want to give anything away, but you find out if you Google it.

Nicolas Cage is also great !

I like The Postman. They made it not far from here too.

The Postman is a great film !!...wooo !...they made it near you ?..hows' that for name dropping ?

I really don't know why everybody dislikes Costner ...do you ?

I also think Keanu Reeves is quite a good actor and yet he is always slated !

I thought Knowing was okay. It didn't give me nightmares or anything. Paranormal Activity was pretty good. My girlfriend kept making me jump though when she screamed her head off!

I used to try dropping your name, but I kept getting the bums rush when I brought it up.

Ahem - Oh yes, most of it was shot in a sleepy (no - not sheepy) little town called Metaline Falls in Washington. They turned the whole town into a movie set! Metaline Falls is the only place I know that has a store where on one side they sell quilting supplies (fabric etc.) and on the other they sell hard liquor (off license).

Yes. I think Reeves is OK too. We just saw "Sweet November". I thought he was quite good in it. Maybe it's simply a case of people becoming successful and others feeling the need to take them down a peg.

I think everybody thinks acting is easy. It's not. I gave up my acting "career" after I fell off the stage. (no kidding!)

I love Kevin Costner and Water World was great to watch! The 1997 postman was wonderful as well as, Dances with wolves,THE NOTE, AND MANY OTHER MOVIES HE MADE..Nicolas Cage is a great actor and I have enjoyed most all of his movies..
I think every now and again an actor does amovie which does not come upn to par with their abilities to act or the movies them selves are poorly written but for the most part I really enjoy the above mentioned actors etc..
Oh yes there was also the movie with Costner with the line "If you build it they will come." Do you all know which title that was..?  Remember "Field of dreams"from 1989.. that was good also.
Robin hood and many other costner movies were well worth watching.
