I've never heard of Colin Ferrell or seen any of his films. There's this guy Colin Farrell who is much better known and coincidentally he has also starred in a film called Alexander.

I agree, the Postman was awesome. I feel like it got rough reviews in part because it was such a long movie. But it was a great film regardless.

The 13th Warrior was actually pretty good... though the ending trails off. Alexander wasn't too bad either. Not great, but nowhere near as bad as people made out. Grownups 2 and The Interns are WAY worse.

Grown Ups 2 was worse than the Tet Offensive. That's not high praise. And 1st half of 13th Warrior was okay but last half was kind of dumb. Alexander.. had some moments but was mostly terrible. Colin Ferrell/Farrell was a horrible choice. Though Rosario Dawson was yummy as always, even if that was one of the least sexy sex scenes ever filmed. But yes, it was better than Grown Ups 2.

I thought Hopper was fun to watch in Fishtar (Waterworld). That and Ishtar were the only ones on this list I'd seen. I wish I could erase all of Ishtar from my mind - at least the part I saw before giving up on it.

Hopper saw what it was and decided to run with it. Either that or he was just being himself and it was a bit of cinema verite.
