    Sam Rockwell was so ignorantly evil and charming at the same time in The Green Mile. Hes the only reason I love that movie.

    I have a problem where I have to watch anything to completion if I catch more than 5 minutes of it.

    • LizSetsFire

      November 5, 2012 at 12:54 pm

      @jerkstoresean odd since I’m assuming you typically reach completion in under 5 minutes. Zing.

    I love The Island for the HORRIFIC performance of Scarlett Johannson.  Oh, and she’s gorgeous, and constantly yelling, “Run!” for no reason.  No one knows this movie.

    Juliette Lewis in The Other Sister…. Awful movie but she is probably the worst retard impression ever. Diane Keaton was great trying to keep a straight face.
