Where is GFan and why is it taking him so long to abuse this movie?

Hoop Dreams 10/10 (last time I rated this a 9.5/10)

Just saw Hoop Dreams again (it is streaming on Netflix right now). This is probably the best documentary ever made. Ebert said it was the best movie of the 1990s (I am not sure I can disagree). This is the story about two inner city African American youths recruited off the playgrounds to play basketball at the prestigious St Josephs High School, a suburban private school, the alma mater of hall of famer Isiah Thomas. This movie has so many levels:
The difficulties of growing up poor in the inner city
The pressures put on young athletes
The relationships between the boys and the adults in their lives
The relationship between player and coach.
What Isiah Thomas means to each boy
The differences between private and public education

The most interesting aspect to me is the attitude of each of the boys.

If you hate documentaries, you still must watch this. If you hate basketball, you should still watch this.

Inception was a brilliant superbly crafted film. Christopher Nolan's resume is quickly becoming one that can rival any of the top writer/directors, he's right up there with the Spielberg's, Scorsese's, Coppola's, Tarantino's, etc. Leo has proven himself once again as one of the greatest actors of my generation, everything he does is gold. All of the acting was top notch, the dialog was fantastic, and the action was riveting. It was just complex enough to make you think, but not so much so that you couldn't follow it closely. I absolutely loved it and can not wait to see it again...and again.

Count me in as one who doesn't think there will be a sequel. I think this is one of those stand alone films that does not need a companion piece. That said, I can easily see one being made. The thing is, if Nolan wants to do it right, I think the sequel is Inception.....the prequel is Extraction.

Yeah he'd probably top my list if I had to pick the greatest actor of my generation right now. He's got pretty good company too, off the top of my head: Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, Christian Bale, Joaquin Phoenix, Mark Wahlberg....I know I'm missing some big name A listers. :-?

Brad Pitt

Johnny Depp

I'm not huge on him, but George Clooney's name would be in the conversation, and atop many peoples' lists I imagine. Also Will Smith and Sean Penn.
