I loved Rushmore.  I do tend to really love Bill Murray movies.  I thought "Lost in Translation" was very overrated.  I find there is a trend in literature these days to try to convey a feeling/emotion/state of mind rather than tell a story.  While I think a book can get away with not being story-driven, I don't think it's really appropriate for movies.  Lost in Translation was such a movie.

I purchased Rushmore, but I have yet to watch all of it.

Bill Murry was also in these movies:

Osmosis Jones
Where The Buffalo Roam

Osmosis Jones would be a relatively newer movie, and as such movies go, it wasn't awful. It has a lot of subtle touches in it.

Where The Buffalo Roam is an older movie.. but I think it's great. He handles Hunter S. Thompson well.

You're kidding, right?

How a book expects to sell itself without a story is beyond me.  And I can think of many films where the story is the last thing on the director's mind.
I'd love to be proved wrong though ;)

Finnegan's Wake? Ulysses? Hardboiled Wonderland and the End of the World? Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

all books that don't have a story that really makes sense or wouldn't fully translate into movie form. too much philosophy or too cerebral, for example...

I don't often like books where nothing happens and it's more abotu conveying an idea or feeling, but there are some exceptions.  I just don't find that it works for movies.   Movies don't get inside your head the way books do - or at least not inside my head.

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Funny that you should mention that last one. Bladerunner is my all time most enjoyable film.

Blade Runner was an excellent movie, but it wasn't Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. The book was all about Mercerism.

One of my all-time favorite movies was "A Boy and his Dog" where the movie WAS actually better than the book.

Harry: I liked the book "A boy and his dog" better than the movie but maybe that's my aversion to Don Johnson.

Anyone remember the original "1984" movie? Can't seem to find it anywhere and it was very good as well as representing the book. As was "On The Beach".

Anyone seen XMen 3? I heard some great reviews on it this week... I think I would like to have all 3 on DVD.

I watched X Men 3 this past week with Girthta.

It's full of special effects, violence, a very thin plot, and the usual bits you'd expect. Fun, but not serious.

The violence shocked me a bit, though... it's been a while since I've seen anything violent.

Disney is going to be releasing DUMBO on DVD next Tuesday the 6th. We have the VHS tape of it already but those only last so long. A DVD should last longer with proper care. Our grandkids love the Disney stuff. :-)

I'd make copies of it.... DVDs are more prone to little kid damage while VHS is not going to break if it is thrown across the floor.

I won't spoil any of it, but the end, I was like....crap!

That is all.
