    I thought the new Robocop was pretty solid.

    That's the one. I've taken a fairly significant amount of criticism for my defense of that movie... probably because I don't know how. It's goofy as heck.

    I really enjoyed Mystic River.

    Have you seen Milk?

    Yes. Loved his performance!

    You'd be hard pressed to find a Penn movie I haven't seen. I think he has the broadest range and depth of emotional connection to character of any actor in my generation.

    Based on what people posted in the other thread, apparently The Matrix series.

    I loved the book, but the movie was awful.

    I bet you sit down regularly and do Costner double features with that one and The Postman.

    More than Daniel Day Lewis?

    I do like Penn quite a bit though.

    Don't know why but I'm a big fan of it also.

    Felt like Mad Max, which I like and will probably be seeing the new one.

    Sahara-I know it is usually the punchline to jokes about movie flops but I liked it. The well directed action scenes were good not to mention the beautiful photography.

    Movie I Like that other people likely don't know exists:
    Fresh Horses.
    I like it but it is no hidden gem. Shot in Cincinnati with a couple big stars at the time. Perhaps Ben Stiller's first movie now that I think about it.

    Slasher themed movies seem to be taking a bit of a beating, so I'll throw in the Scream series, the first I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Halloween I, II and IV.

    It would have been OK, if I hadn't been a big fan of the books. I'm a big fan of Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt series. The casting of Pitt and Giordino in that movie was terrible.
