I'm not sure if my local theater is going to have the movie yet. They should have all of their movie times listed within a few days. So far the only movie they have listed for Friday is Spiderman. Another theater fairly close by is getting it, so at least I'll be able to see it by the early part of next week at the latest.

I'll go with 10 million.

Maybe with The Mule coming out, we'll get a few old timers dropping by to post some thoughts about it.

I saw Creed II a few days ago and enjoyed it as well. Not as much as Creed, but still enjoyable. It's very predictable but the performances from the whole main cast make it worthwhile.

I was thinking about the title... I guess it could also be considered Rocky VIII. Or Rocky IV Part II. :D ;D  (Creed II is better than Rocky IV at least)

I know Matt loves Rocky as well. Have you seen the Creed movies?

This old guy's about to turn 36 in a few days! :o :D ;D

So, um... happy 16th anniversary to this thread! :D ;D

I was just going through the pages of this forum and clicked on this thread. Pretty fun to look back at the beginnings of this "new" board!

According to the stats center, I've got the first three posts for this month. :D

Christopher, if you're in touch with her, tell her to come back and say Hi once in a while! :)
I did pass that along to her. O0

The site was working really slow for me when I clicked it last night so I only saw the first page, and I wasn't surprised to see most of those at the bottom of the list. I would place 15:17 to Paris at the very bottom though.

I just looked up The Mule on Google to check the rating for the movie (I'd thought I'd heard it was going to be rated R), and there's an IMDb link on the page that lists the user rating for the movie to be 4.3. I figured the trolls must be out early. But when I clicked it, here's the movie it linked me to: Mule Feathers starring Rory Calhoun and Don Knotts https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0073416/

 ;D :D

Edit: And I do see the actual IMDb page for the movie doesn't allow user ratings yet, as I expected to be the case.

Where can you still shop for real, live, physical DVDs? :D
Pretty much any store that's always had them? :D I notice there's less, but they're still out there. Those Black Friday ones came from Walmart.

I've been on a bit of a frenzy lately. Found two more yesterday at Best Buy to add to my collection: That Thing You Do and Robin Hood: Men in Tights.

A 20-minute sequence would be crazy... and horribly boring no matter how visually interesting it might be! :o ;)

I'm glad you mentioned the poster for this one, Matt. I don't know if I've ever seen that before.

I haven't had a dream like that in a really long time, maybe going back to high school.

Yes, that's the one. Wesley Snipes starred in it.

I noticed that many movies released in 1996-1997 introduced President of the USA as a good guy and a hero:
Independence Day, Deep Impact, Air Force One. In Mars Attacks, he was more ambiguous.
But only Absolute Power introduced him as a real bad guy. It was interesting and daring.
Murder at 1600 was from that time period as well, but it's been so long since I've seen it I don't remember how the president was in it.

I've always enjoyed Absolute Power too.

Roger Ebert gave it a really good review, which might be interesting for some of you. https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/absolute-power-1997

I love The Karate Kid, but that whole set up does sound pretty sad. :D ;D

That Clint would play Seth was Goldman's idea ... Clint never wanted to play anyone but Luther. ;)
Oh, okay, so just how Goldman was picturing it.

I didn't know William Goldman wrote Absolute Power.

I also didn't know that Eastwood was originally going to play Seth!
