Actually, I thought she was pretty good-looking in Defending Your Life and The River Wild. But I often get the sense she's performing rather than being. I prefer actors/actresses who seem to be themselves on screen.

But her performance in Defending Your Life was rather touching.

Nigel, if you think she's good-looking, go see Shallow Hal; there may be an explanation for the aberration. Just kidding.

As far as war films go, The Heroes of Telemark, Where Eagles Dare, The Battle of Britain and Stalag 17 are pretty decent.

The director/producer who did "Spider," is a master of creep. Canadian to boot. Lynch is always good.... Let's see, hmmm. Oh, yeah, Alex. I like his web movie clips. :)

David Cronenberg. Always an interesting directory, even though variable in quality. My favourite Cronenberg movies: THE NAKED LUNCH, DEAD RINGERS, THE FLY, THE DEAD ZONE. His early films are actually good to watch to learn how you can make an effective psychological horror film on a low budget. SHIVERS and RABID are cheap but effective.

Over here THE ROAD WARRIOR was the title for MAD MAX 2. I assume that's the movie you are referring to. THE ROAD WARRIOR is an excellent popcorn movie that has great direction and editing of action. It hits all the marks and it has something the new Matrix movie lacks, rhythm.
