MJ: some Indian movies... I can only remember seeing one Indian movie -- some classic involving the friendship between a postmaster in a remote village and the young girlservant who works for him. Guess I should go rent something from my local Bollywood Video.

I totally agree, Marilyn's description of Alien makes it sound educational... "On the way home to Earth, a small team of miners discovers a new life form." I went with Matrix, What about Bob?, and 200 Cigarettes. [ February 20, 2002: Message edited by: Michael Pearson ]
If I had to give a description for the Matrix it it would be Jm's favorite movie JM is our 11 year old son, Jonathan Mauritz. He loves the Matrix. I bought the DVD version to test my DVD player on the new notebook, and he has watched it twice already on the notebook

Michael: Try Lagaan. Its nominated for Oscar in the best foreign film category this year. It has sub-titles to help you understand better. The movie is about village people playing a cricket match with their colonial masters[ British ] to avoid paying tax. These people are already facing a severe drought crisis and a sadist Englishman challenges them to play a game totally alien to them and gives a 3 month time to learn it. I hope it got you interested. cheers jytsika

You'll enjoy the match, Jdj. Will the villagers succeed? A nail-biting finish. MM: What's the name of the Indian movie you had seen? I am not aware of it at all. jytsika
A great movie about Vietnam based on a great book about the Ivory trade in the heart of Africa (1979)
Bill, on His Own
A very funny movie that is supposed to be serious (1983)
Little Shop of Horrors
A flesh eating plant
Very bad B movie/musical about a blood thirsty plant.

sorry, jason. i actually like the movie... i just cannot bring myself to write a good review for it. "feed me, seymour..."
I used "qwerty" and "asklasklaskl " and such to test the video servlet. BUT if I had to use real data: 1. Looking for Richard, Al Pacino/Kevin Spacy, drama, A film I wish I had I seen when I was 14 years old - about bringing Shakespeare's drama to those who hated this stuff at skool. 2. Dark Star, starring "the bomb", comedy?, A bedtime story for your dark side: a time saving substitute for 2001. 3. The Straight Story, Richard Farnsworth/Sissy Spacek, action?, also a substitute for 2001 but with feeling, another film I wish I had seen 40 years ago... a long slow journey to visit a long lost relation.
