Well, probably 10-20 minutes writing the descriptions, and then another hour deleting and changing random words so they don't make any sense, and probably 5 minutes looking for the trailers.

Trivia fact! Ocean's Eleven was originally going to be a follow-up to Out of Sight, but was dropped as Jennifer Lopez' relationship with Clooney and Soderbergh was too fractious.

Damn, completely forgot about that movie.  Maybe I thought I thought it came out in the 2000s. 

Also that's a sweet poster but did Clooney even look like that in the movie?  That looks  like Facts of Life Clooney. 
I'm all out for kicks...and every inch of me spells EXCITEMENT!

I hadn't seen that poster before, so I don't know how legitimate it actually is, I just chose it because it looks cool.  I remember listening to the Out of Sight commentary, and Soderbergh talking about Clooney's hair, in that he shaved the front part of it off to give himself a receding hairline to make himself look older.  I don't know if that makes it look a little weirder or not.  Great movie though.

Okay, I don't agree with how asbestos bill put it, but these summaries are fucked up.

Are you serious? I would be very surprised if Bob would be offended. VERY surprised.

I was hoping someone would complain about Miller's Crossing making it, so I could plead "LOOK INTA YA HAHT!"

I actually saw this for the first time this year.  Great movie and has one of my favourite weird moments in a Coen brothers movie.  The scene in which Gabriel Byrne punches the man looking to work him over and... well, it's an unexpected reaction (if anyone can find the scene online, please post it!)  Definitely not my favourite Coen movie, but still a great one.

Glad to see Out of Sight made it. I just bougth the bluray and it's still as wonderful as ever.

Usual Suspects was also on my list, Miller's Crossing was an honorable mention.

So what? I'm offended. It's a dickhead thing to say.

Your moral compass baffles me, Im.

And one might respond with "What heart?"
