She's 41, actually, and looking fabulous. Even for someone who's had the luxury of personal trainers, facials etc etc for years.

There's plenty of great looking people in this business, what actually makes her more attractive is that she is also a very nice person, and a hard-working professional. That's unfortunately more rare than it should be.

I'm not sure if these qualify or not, but I really liked HARD DAYS NIGHT and THAT THING YOU DO. Both had scenes were the bands performed before the cameras in a studio setting.

I'm afraid I haven't seen some of the others that were mentioned.

I saw a trailer for Analyze That (the sequal to Analyze This) and
it seems that there will be some fair amount of "behind the
scenes" shots since a movie is being made inside that movie.
Just thought to let everyone know.

I definitely need to visit a real set one day to see what they
are all doing... should be interesting

I'm going to go and Spike Jonzes' 'Adaptation'. It is a movie about screenwriting and making a movie. It's in theaters now.
It looks to be Nicholas Cages best work in a long while.

If someone else here has seen it, give me a day before spoiling.

thanks

How ironic. A great movie abuot a guy who made some of the worst movies in history. toward the end, even his porno stuff was lousy.

Don't forget

"Truman Show" with Jim Carey !

It's more of a recent movie than the "classics" mentioned above.

OK ok ok,

I am going way out there, but being addicted to 70's stuff i saw a fantastic doco entitled "Wadd: The life and times of John Holmes"

Now before you start about it being a porno, i did have the X cut, there is also a festival R rated cut with a little less of the flashbacks, but wow is it fantastic. It has all the main people from the industry back then, the producers, writers (heh heh), directors, actors even the distro agents all talking about every detail of the industry, geez it even had the people who composed the scores.

It goes for well over 2 hours and follows Little Johnny's entire life and inturn follows the industry all way from 1971 until 1985 and really opens your eyes. One person also in this but not really even advertised in Paul T. Anderson (the director of Boogie Nights) who talks a lot about how it translated into his movie.

Anyways, I enjoyed it.

Zac
