    All the movies he directed are currently streaming on Netflix!!!

    Lost in America is one of my all-time favorite movies (The Desert Inn has heart!) and Real Life eerily predicted the rise of reality television. If you haven't seen them before, check them out.

    All the food is great and you can eat as much as you want and it won't have any effect on you.

    If Islam promised that I might sign up to be a suicide bomber.

    I'll throw some love for The Scout. The late 80's/early 90's were a goldmine for baseball movies for no real good reason.
