    That drill instructor was also in The Frighteners with Michael J. Fox. He played a drill intructor in that one too. I also like the drill instructor played by Christopher Walken in Biloxi Blues.....

    We just got the frightners out on video. Haven't seen it yet though. I wanted to see some of Peter Jackson's work so I can get a bit of an idea of what to expect from the Lord of the Rings. I know you can judge a producer by past efforts but it's interesting to see their older films. I recently got out THX1138 and American Graffiti for similar reasons.

    yeh i agree, i love american graffiti, but disliked THX1138, it's not like the storyline wasn't inventive , but i had a hard time keeping myself awake , it was a very slow paced film

    Sort of like 1984, except that I understood what was going on in 1984.

    It picked up, from memory:

    Best Picture
    Best Leading Actor
    Best Costume Design
    Best Sound
    Best Visual Effects (NO ONE COULD BEAT THIS ONE)

    Well thats it I think. So Thats FIVE! I still think they should have won Best Music Score though. :(

    I dont believe it. ILM missed out again and gladiator did have good special FX but I think that Hollow Man's Special FX were far better than gladiators. I hope that ILM cleans up next year will Episode 2 and I hope it gets best picture.

    GO STAR WARS!!!!

    The thinking in Hollywood seems to be:
    The less shots vs the most shots wins.
