I purchased Rushmore, but I have yet to watch all of it.
Bill Murry was also in these movies:
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.

...While I think a book can get away with not being story-driven, I don't think it's really appropriate for movies...
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 ;)
Subject: movies i bought yesterday
Office Space special edition with flair
Kung Fu Hustle
The adventures of Milo and Otis
yes that's right, Milo and Otis. I'm feeding my inner child and it was only $5
How a book expects to sell itself without a story is beyond me. And
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...
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.
Quote: "I must say that she had very good taste." ;-)
And your point is ??
And with that, Captain Obvious said to his sidekick, No Shit...
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".
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 won't spoil any of it, but the end, I was like....crap!
That is all.
