Yeah, gotta see "Candy".

And listen folks, I'm guilty as charged myself when it comes to liking films that should/could be better.

In the case of Heath, I love that Brian Helgeland piece of mish mash, "The Order".

I like the subject matter, I love the locations, I love the actors (Shannon Sossamon, mmmm). . .

It's not a great film and I don't care ;)

Man, Thank you God, I thought I was the only one that loved, The Order. People always used to tease me on this but I just really like that movie. The concept, idea, actors (Shannyn Sossamon, YES) I mean it could have been better but that's one of things I like about it, it's incomplete.

Always a hard one for me...I usually do these top 10 lists to avoid too much heartache. :)


1.) Matt Damon...primarily because he's so good and so laid back.

2.) Gary Oldman...the great chameleon of actors. Never the same character twice.

3.) Christian Bale...how much weight did he lose for "The Machinist"? The PERFECT Batman

4.) Edward Norton...from what I hear, not a big fan of the personal life, but since "Primal Fear" has topped my lists

5.) Brad Pitt...SNATCH...'nuff said.

6.) Johnny Depp...Steals EVERY movie...most notably "Once Upon a Time in Mexico".

7.) Tom Hanks...Completely Amazing

8.) Stellan Skarsgard..."Good Will Hunting", "Glass House", "King Arthur"...a great and often overlooked actor.

9.) Russell Crowe...Loved him in "Virtuosity"...and everything since

10.) Tom Jane...recently added to my list after seeing "Stander" and finding out about his involvement in comics

Buster Keaton


Stoneface, deadpan... Pshaw ! ! ! ! !


-He wasn't chewing up the scenery with silent film mugging,

but had so much expression. Look at that face, it's like yours

and mine when a SNAFU brings it's hammer down upon us.--


The slap shoes & pork pie flat hat distracted from the profound

depth of thought put into every film he produced, (genius).
