Glad to see Walt mention Runaway Jury ... I was just going to myself, when I saw his post. That film was enjoyable simply for its acting ... besides Hoffman, Gene Hackman and John Cusack were great in it..

Straight time is an excellent film with a good small time music score. The film is a lot easier to get here in the UK. So for Pal viewers there are several on Ebay UK, including this one a steal at only £2.99



Auction here.

Got idea to make a post on Dustin Hoffman, am I too late to reply ;D

Hoffman is one of the coolest actors of all-time he's always aged well and has always played in good roles, I even got to see him in a sixties comerical where he's promoting the latest car. Some of my favorites include The Graduate (One of my all-time favorite movies)! Marathon Man - which is my second favorite Hoffman movies, I just loved that film. I loved him in Midnight Cowboy of course and movies like Little Big Man and Papillon. Then you got movies like Rain Man and all the way to Meet the Fockers, he's a great actor and one of the coolests, there's so many movies to talk about when you mention Dustin Hoffman.

I went back to Holden's post at the beginning where Straight Time is discussed since it's not one I'm familiar with. It sounds good. I'm glad it will be available soon.

I love Little Big Man and Rain Man. They are brilliant films. I still have not seen The Graduate and Midnight Cowbow. I know that they are must sees and I will eventually get around to them.

I wanted to post an image of the UK quad for Straight time but was unable to find one.

Until now ....




Great to see a DVD release.

Besides The Graduate and Kramer vs. Kramer, I'm not all that into him. He's good, just not a fan.
