    I've always had a soft spot for Cocoon, a sort of ET for pensioners, and loved James Horners scores for this, Willow and Apollo 13. Cinderella Man doesn't interest me much I'll catch it on cable.

    1)Cocoon
    2)Willow
    3)Backdraft
    4)Apollo 13
    5)Splash
    6)Ransom
    7)Parenthood
    8)A Beautiful Mind
    9)Far and Away
    10)Gung Ho

    1. Cinderella Man - B+ (Works because the performances are so strong. Howard is always a problematic director)
    2. Frost/Nixon - B+
    3. Parenthood - B (this might be even funnier now)
    4. The Missing - B (I really liked most of this, if it had a better ending it would probably be my favorite of his films)
    5. Willow - B (Guessing haven't seen it in years)
    6. Angels & Demons - B-
    7. The Da Vinci Code - B-
    8. The Paper - B-
    9. Ransom - B-
    10. A Beautiful Mind - C
    11. Gung Ho - C
    12. EdTV - D
    13. How The Grinch Stole Christmas - F
    (an abomination)

    I've seen bits of a few others over the years - Apollo, Splash, Cocoon, etc, really the only one I'm that interested in seeing is Grand Theft Auto, though Bill's one star rating just knocked my interest down.

    For those who enjoy Ron Howard's body of work you might want to see the broadcast of The Museum of the Moving Image wonderful tribute to Ron Howard. I saw a taping of it recently and thought it to be one of the better "tributes" I've seen in a very long time.

    Anyway, here is my list:

    (0-5 STARS)


    __[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Apollo 13 (1995)
    __[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]__ Cinderella Man (2005)
    ____[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] A Beautiful Mind (2001)
    ____[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Ransom (1996)
    ____[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Parenthood (1989)
    ____[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Splash (1984)
    ____[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Cocoon (1985)
    ____[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Far and Away (1992)
    ____[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]__ Willow (1988)
    ____[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]__ Gung Hov (1986)
    ____[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]__ Edtv (1999)
    ______[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Backdraft (1991)
    ______[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Night Shift (1982)
    ______[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)

    The Missing (2003) I still have not got around to watching this.
    The Paper (1994) Never seen it.
    Grand Theft Auto (1977) Saw it so long ago I barely have any memory of it, which probably means I didn't like it. [​IMG]

    A Beautiful Mind (2001) - 5/10
    Apollo 13 (1995) - 7/10
    Backdraft (1991) - 5/10
    Parenthood (1989) - 6/10
    Gung Ho (1986) - 6/10
    Cocoon (1985) - 5/10
    Splash (1984) - 6/10
    Night Shift (1982) - 6/10


    The very definition of mediocre, although I've got a nostalgic soft spot for Gung Ho.
