Friendly suggestion: you should explicitly state for the more feeble-minded poll-takers (such as myself) that these movies were chosen because they start with the word 'Good'. For about 5 minutes I thought u were implying that those were his only 2 good movies and everything else was forgettable & I was like 'wow rude', so I started compiling a list of movies rated higher than 'Good Morning Vietnam' to strengthen my argument....and then I finally clued in and felt like an idiot.

Cute cat btw is it urs?

Yes, he's mine. I call this photo "Orange Steel."

His name is Sunny. That was the name he had at the pound. But it totally fits him. At the pound he was all putting his arms through the bars to try and get me to play with him. And, of course he's an orange tabby so... But sometimes I think of him as "Sonny" cause he can be a little bitch like some wanna-be Guido from Jersey.

I wasn't planning on getting a cat (or any pet) but one day during work I was listening to Johnny Cash singing about his old dog Shep. And how if there was a doggie heaven then Shep obviously was there. And I was like, "I'm just gonna go to the pound after work and say hi to the dogs.

And now here we are, 12 years later. 

If you have eagle eyes you can see his chill-out spot from a place we lived a while ago.

And here he is just being a bum:

'Good face-off! 'Probably 'Good Will Hunting.' As a title, taking into consideration groovyvic's comment, maybe Face-Off: Robin Williams' 'Good' vs. 'Good'   (?)

Oh, btw, I love "gooder," lol.

Or, if you keep the title as it is, perhaps put "Good" in single quote marks? I think several people might read the title literally without something to hint at the meaning, even after seeing the two movies below.

... Really 'Good' Films...

Good Will Hunting.....and a suggestion for a Poll you could make for Robin. This should set off the light bulb!

  • [last lines] 

    [Sean reads a note from Will: "Sean, if the Professor calls about that job, just tell him, sorry, I have to go see about a girl."] 

    Sean : Son of a bitch... He stole my line.

Com'on Jess, you don't want to meet a Vietman? :)

Thanks Ruby. I think it popped into my head because of a commercial that runs here all the time for Haribo Gummies. One of the adults (acting like and speaking in voices of kids) says something like, "The red one is more gooder."

"The red one is more gooder" is at 12 seconds.

The fact that more people voted for "Good Will Hunting" than "Good Morning, Vietnam", it just  stymies me.  I mean, nothing personal to Matt Damon, he a very actor and all that, but I just didn't find the film to be that appealing to me, even with Robin Williams and a lot of other fine stars in it.  I just didn't get it, I'm sorry to say. 

Perhaps the reason that I didn't care for it is because part of the plot was that the main character played by Damon was being counseled by a psychologist to help him come out of his inner shell, and it's a painful reminder of the fact that I, too, am currently undergoing therapy for my anxiety disorder that I've been suffering from for many years, I don't know.

Anyways, this is all just my opinion.   I hope that I won't be chastised too much for it.
