    12 Monkeys, Wes Craven's New Nightmare, The Big Lebowski - all great.
    Uncle Drew is welcome at my house anytime, but I'd drive Kyrie to the f*cking airport myself.

    Actually, no - he can walk.

    Hold my nuts, Kyrie - hold my nuts.

    It took me 4 or 5 tries to finally get through The Big Lebowski. I'd start watching it, get bored and turn it off. Sometimes I'd just start watching it again from the beginning and sometimes I would pick up where I left off. I understand it has a big following and there are a lot of quotable lines, but overall, I just wasn't impressed.

    It may have been the fact that it had been so over-hyped before I finally got around to watching it, that it just didn't live up to expectations.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    Yeah, it probably got over hyped for you. Also, I tell people not to try and follow the storyline. It's more enjoyable that way.

    No movie can please everyone; that is particularly true of The Big Lebowski (which I love). There's no way to describe it correctly to someone who hasn't seen it; I've never been able to articulate why I find it funny. But if you have a friend that likes weird movies, you recommend this one (luckily I had a buddy who recommended it to me).

    When it came out, There's Something About Mary was one of the funniest raunchy comedies (now the bar has been raised...or lowered). I laughed so hard, my face hurt.

    Me too. The Big Lebowski is one of those films that I think has gotten passed down from friend to friend. Boondock Saints was like that when I was in college. We passed around the same DVD. I would love to see the family tree of the people I told to watch The Big Lebowski and now love the film. I'm sure those people then told a whole bunch of others.

    Brad Pitt's performance in 12 Monkeys is one of the most often overlooked performances.

    I always thought New Nightmare was one of the better movies out of the entire franchise. The whole movie within a movie and the story-line of the actors playing themselves was interesting and I liked the fact that they brought back the original Nancy.
