No offense. 

Biel was hot though.........

That wasn't Statham, that was the other guy who was a whiny douche.

The dialogue is killer in that movie.  Definitely not action packed or dramatic but some great dialogue.  Was not expecting it.

Joe and Max (2002 made for TV movie)

the story surrounding the two Loe Louis vs Max Schmeling fights. EXCELLENT for those interested in either famous prize fights OR history.

I'm not Rappaport (1996)

most excellent acting by Walter Matthau and Ozzie Davis. worth watching for the scene where Nat (Matthau) and Midge (Davis) get stoned in Central Park.

will be on HBO again March 22nd and 23rd

Frequency was an excellent movie as well. Especially if you are into time travel/change the futre type of flicks.

Frailty was a very good horror/suspense movie that it seems no one has seen.

Awesome movie. "God will protect me".
Matthew McConaughey is usually good in everything movie he does.

My Favorites all, but 1 were kinda sleepers at box office:

The Insider                               R. Crowe
Last of the Dogmen                   T. Berenger  Barb Hershey
No Way Out                             K. Costner
Primal Fear                              R. Gere  E. Norton Really got E.
                                                                           Norton going
Man On Fire                             D. Washington D. Fanning
                                               (this one shud have won Oscar
                                                IMO - lotta success.

In my opinion, some classic tough guy dramas:

-Two older Kevin Costner movies---1.No Way Out

                                                  2.Revenge

-Jason Patric and Ray Liotta in Narc.

-Mel Gibson in Payback
