The second Mad Max movie is another Aussie classic. It was filmed in the middle of nowhere in South Australia, actually on an airforce missile range. Pretty apt considering it is supposed to be post apocalyptic.

As for Mad Max 3, lets not go there, it's a great example of how sucess and Hollywood can screw up a good thing.

I'm not Eric but I loved the movie Enemy at the gates. One of the greatest. A true classic.

Hearing anything about Mad Max 4? Last thing I heard was that George Miller got the go ahead with Mel Gibson returning.

Mad Max 3 sunk the moment they introduced the kids. Another great concept destroyed by someone wanting to make it 'accessible'.

Meryl is gorgeous in The Bridges of Madison County, and acts totally naturally with Eastwood dousing her acting flames. Splendid.

So there's two of my favourites.

Here's some more:
Gene Hackman
Jeremy Irons
Jodie Foster (Contact!)
Nicole Kidman (The Others!)
Rutger Hauer (Blade runner: "Time.... to die... ")
Don't get me starteeeeeed

Actually I must confess I haven't seen any of those. I have seen
a small piece of "De Lift" (Down?) and "Amsterdamned". Dutch
TV is already boring as .... The movie scene is very small here and
there doesn't seem to be much interesting stuff out. When I see
trailers I for dutch movies I usually feel like I've seen enough.

There is one coming out on rental DVD soon that I will check out
though!

Indeed, they wouldn't understand <g>

How is "Amsterdamned"? I was just telling Dylan about that movie and how it supposedly had cool chases. True?

Paul Verhoeven did bunch of movies in Netherlands before he came to the US. Amsterdam is a great city.

Shallow Hal -- pretty pathetic the way they made fun of fat people, etc. There is however a scene I never forget. There is this handicaped guy who walks on all four, going on a date, gets out of a car, gets on all four, looks at the shiny hubcap, sees his face, gets out his comb and start fixing his hair.
