Like the one he did for that Apocalypse Now DVD, the two disc version that included Hearts Of Darkness and both cuts of the film.

Oh wait....

I guess I'm the only one (as usual) who liked:

Tucker
Rumble Fish
The Outsiders
The Rainmaker (along with The Firm, the best Grisham adaptation)
Peggy Sue Got Married

No, your not the only one. I'm a big fan of Tucker, Peggy Sue, and most importantly the outsiders. the outsiders only because Diane Lane is hottily rawktastic as a redhead. haven't seen it for awhile. All I remember is that corny mickey mouse/product placement t-shirt Gordon Bombay wears.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

But that "Stay Gold" song damn near kills the movie.

I second all of the above notions.  Plus Rumble Fish had it all over Pleasantville (Schindler's List, too) what with the black and white film, and the red fish Mickey Rourke sees.

I'd never seen any of the Godfather movies, so I watched them all today, back to back. The first two: brilliant. The third: good, but rather perfunctory. It would have been better if they never made it, but the opera finale is brilliantly staged. I also enjoyed the Vatican conspiracy stuff, although I might have liked to see it in a different movie. But the first two...my expectations were met. A good day. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to stop staring at pixels and go to bed.

Now go listen to the excellent commentary tracks.

They are excelent, no doubt, but Coppola's voice is kind of weird.

Not as weird as it taking Ghosty this long to finally watch The Godfather...

What can I say, I'm a procrastinator. Also, I really have to force myself to watch things at home...I'm a big screen junkie. But in the interest of cinema history, I've gotten a lot better at sitting down in front of my TV.

I guess it was a sort of timely decision to view them on Wednesday.
