what about the final freeze frame of Days of Thunder, that would make me smile.

mac? cine?


I would also love to see that. If I mailed it to Tom Cruise and Robet Duvall, I wonder if they'd autograph it. What an amazing gift that would be.
Well, I've got news for you pal, you ain't leadin' but two things: Jack and shit . . . and Jack just left town.

Paris, Texas has some gorgeous shots

Unless samsong beats me to it, I'll make those shots soon enough.


amen! please get one of one of the final shots when he's standing next to the car on top of the parking garage, and all the light is green. . . i am getting much too excited here.


Ive posted a couple paris texas shots some pages back on this thread, but now they're all "this image is hosted by angelfire" crap. you can still see them, you just have to copy the path from the properties and paste in in the adress.

One of my favorite shots in Atonement was looking through the window as the old lady pushes the pram down the street. Awesome.
He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.
