okay, forgive me anyone who likes one of these movies.  i havent seen them all.  kevin costner after making the untouchables, bull durham, field of dreams, dances with wolves, robin hood, jfk and the bodyguard inside of 5 years.  almost all huge critical/commercial hits in 5 years!  followed them up with ...

the war
waterworld
tin cup
the postman
message in a bottle
for love of the game
13 days
3000 miles to graceland
dragonfly

thats 9.  do all of those count?  if not 3000 miles to graceland should count as two.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Take 3000 for two, because Tin Cup is great.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Fucking eh'. Tin Cup is one of my favorite Costner movies and Costner is one of my favorite Hollywood actors right now. Also, The War is adaquete (at least Costner's performance is) while Thirteen Days is a very good film that seems only handicapped by the fact that books have detailed its story better.

P got it right, Stallone is the real victor for this category.

!!! First movie we both really like, GT!

(spoilers!?)

Y'know what makes that movie really great? Besides the fact that I was so into golf when I first watched it, and all my golf buddies love it, it was the perfect ending. As he took that swing and the music started to swell, I thought "oh man, another cheesy stupid ending", but then PLUNK in the water. And over. And over. If I were Paul  Schrader, and I wrote an essay on Tin Cup, I would say the ending got "transcendent". Hehe.

Definitely. I'm a slacker golfer myself, the kind of golfer who hasn't paid to golf in 3 years and just sneaks in or jumps the fence when the weather isn't yet dry enough for golf season but still adaquete enough to golf on. Tin Cup is a seasonal movie I watch at the end of every winter a few times to get myself pumped for golf in the spring. I've watched it 3 times in the last month and look forward to watching it again.
