A few movies I've seen  DEC 12 1999

A few movies I've seen recently:

The Green Mile: Very good, but not great...if that makes sense. If GM gets Best Picture and Hanks gets Best Actor at the Oscars, I'm going to be upset. There were better films and performances out there this year.

Toy Story 2: Better than the first one, funny, well-done. The graphics were amazing; some of the shots looked real...and I mean really real, not that fake real that everyone refers to when talking about computer animation. Also, listen carefully for the Star Wars sounds in the first 5 minutes of the movie.

Free Enterprise: Great movie if you paid any attention at all to Star Trek. I think this movie sets the record for the most references to other movies and TV shows, breaking the record previously held by Kevin Smith's four films. Plus, William Shatner swears and does a rap rendition of Julius Caesar. Seriously.
