I decided to open up a topic instead of posting in the rrpower's thread because this renders the search easier. (And I know that this will also make rrpower happy too).

Tyson (2008)  A good documentary on Tyson. I give it 8\10 in spite of having only Tyson speaking  about himself. I was never a fan of him (boxing starting and ending for me basically with Alý) but I could appreciate some short scenes of him trainng before being the champ where it is clear what was his principal athletic virtues: fastness of trunk, arms and head. The psychological aspects are not new to any Alý fan like myself still hearing them being extolled by Tyson is not so obvious; as it is discovering he's just as logorrhoic as Alý was.

People around here think I have a huge ego. Thanks Titoli, for putting the matter into perspective. Afro

Seconded. Maybe we can get the administrators to rename the board Shortsful-Of-Titoli.

That's why you'll keep the thread high.

Young Man With a Horn (1949) Good music (though DD sings too sugary), but the plot sucks. The Bacall-Douglas story doesn't work, badly built and develop, and so Douglas subsequent behaviour. 5\10

Merrill's Marauders (1962) Chandler dies on the screen and few months later will die on a surgery table at 43. This movie is very good, probably not Fuller's best because still has some hollywoodish crap vignette one could rather do without, but worth a full 7\10, maybe more.

The Perfect Storm (2000) Not so perfect special effects, though. And as this is based heavily on those, that means a lot. I don't like Clooney to boot. You learn something about fishing though, so I give it 5\10.

Speed (1994) At the moment a more over the top movie than this doesn't come to mind. Sly must have felt ashamed when he saw it: all action, like he was never able to do. I don't like Keanu Reeves but Sandra Bullock makes up for it. 8\10

Haha you think I care that you're not posting in my thread? The only kind of person who that would bother is someone who is enough of a giant wiener to think their opinions on certain movies is important enough to warrant its own discussion.

RR is always an astute observer of the human condition, and this post is no different. Rather than engage others in discussion, Titoli would rather be in a corner by himself. Fair enough I suppose.

There's no need to humor titoli by extending this thread any more than necessary. This will be my last post in the thread. If I want to respond to something he says here I'll cut and paste it into the appropriate thread and deal with it there.

Good. That will spare me an answer.
