His laid-back dramatic performances are so great, especially Good Will Hunting and dare I say, Bicentennial Man.

I've yet to see The Fisher King, but it's Terry Gilliam, so I expect it to be fucked up and great at the same time.

Totally agree.

Yeah that's pretty true actually. I spose his latest efforts have been more focused towards actual full-blown comedies, whereas those films were 'dramas' per se, but he weaved good comedy in them to lighten them up.

And I agree about the interviews. He was here for Rove and he was just annoying. It's like he's gone all senile and neurotic.

And LMP, I was gonna mention Bicentennial Man as well, but I was too scared.

would "death" be too harsh a response?

Hey, death is a career move for some.

^Speaking of that SNL news skit, I liked it better with Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtain.


Who can ever forget ... Jane, you ignorant slut !!
