Jesus Camp - speaking of still going to heaven...Ted Haggard's recent tribulations place part of this film in an unintended, yet much more cynical light Cocaine Cowboys - THEY say "The incredible true story that inspired 'Scarface' and 'Miami Vice'" and I say "well..." SherryBaby (2006) Maggie Gyllenhaal as a different kind of ex-con Sasquatch Mountain (2006) Lance Henriksen (presumably) does NOT play Bigfoot Room (2005) indie - executive produced by Michael Stipe! Yes, that's the most interesting thing I could find about this film! The Puffy Chair (2005) indie road movie dramedy about a recliner Time of Her Life (UK, 2005) ghost story Max Havoc: Curse of the Dragon (2004) Max vs. the Yakuza - I like the Yakuza P.O.E. (Point of Execution) (2004) Black Jack (Israel, 2004) Crooks (2002) aka "Errors, Freaks & Oddities" - retitled, released to cash in on a "Lucky Louie" connection?

I'm pretty sure this is my brother-in-law's favourite movie.

Dead Before Dawn (1993) & Fantasies (1981) Still another pair of TV movies - Cheryl Ladd's husband is abusive and hiring assassins to kill her! PLUS Bo Derek is 16 and maybe naked! assuming it's not a typo and this is actually the *1982* TV movie about a killer threatening a soap opera cast - WILL YOU GAMBLE THE $2.99 TO FIND OUT??? Dead Before Dawn Fantasies
Conflict (1973) & St Tammany Miracle (1994) TV movie based on Brian Moore's "Catholics," starring Martin Sheen - PLUS (for no additional cost) a movie about girls' basketball at a Catholic school starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar AND Soleil Moon Frye AND Steve Allen! I CANNOT make up a cast list like that, people! If you don't think you could handle them both, they are available individually: Conflict St Tammany Miracle

Relative Strangers (2006) Danny DeVito, Kathy Bates, Ron Livingston - man discovers he's adopted, embarks on...oh, you've heard it before. Supposedly, really awful Spin (2007) - it's like "The Mambo Kings," only with Reggaeton instead of mambo - and chicks instead of dudes - actually, it's NOTHING like "The Mambo Kings" - never mind Night Skies (2007) - a TRUE STORY of UFOs and ALIEN ABDUCTION makes for a REALLY BAD MOVIE Sabbath - VERY independent "goth zombie" film - Click Here (schottenfilmworks.com)
