    Joe Versus the Volcano (1990)

    "Academy Award-winning screenwriter John Patrick Shanley's first foray into the director's chair is a quirky romantic fantasy, featuring Bo Welch's signature production design. " (from RottenTomatoes) A lot of people dislike this movie, but I always liked it. It's a whimsical little fable (except the ending which really is too dumb even for me). Why should HDTGM do it? Meg Ryan plays 3 different women. You also have Tom Hanks, Lloyd Bridges, Amanda Plummer, Robert Stack, Abe Vigoda, and Ossie Davis. It's just such a strange little movie.
  2. It's worth it for the terrible accents alone. Dead Again is one of my favorite movies to rewatch. It's so terrible and so good. Robin Williams, Andy Garcia, Wayne Knight, Derek Jakobi - all giving everything to this strange little movie.

    Joe Versus the Volcano (1990)

    I have to say this... Mistaking it for a rom-com must be why some people don't like the movie. As a rom-com, it's a silly nothing of a movie, but as a fable about a man who journeys to meet death, it's lovely. The details in this movie really are amazing. Meg Ryan's characters are avatars who reflect Joe's inner state (that's why the same actress plays all three parts). The recurring lighting bolt, the bigger than life characters, the body language, the music, the colors, the camera angles, and the unreal looking sets all seem to have been carefully planned as fairy tale trappings. Even though I wish they hadn't included the island, even that has that carefully chosen feel about it. I really do love this movie, but I know it's a little different and easy to dismiss. Maybe you had to have been stuck in one of those soul-sucking jobs to see the charm of it. I don't know. I only know that I wasn't the only one who was a little obsessed with it. It's probably not a very good HDTGM movie, but I'm too charmed by it to have an unbiased opinion. I am curious about the people who dismiss it though. Am I reading too much into it or are you missing something?

    I saw this in the movie when I was a kid. I have to watch this again.
  7. I would definitely rewatch this if HDTGM did it... and to see John Lithgow's performance because I read that he's really proud of it.

    Highlander II: The Quickening (1991)

    This movie was so disappointing and it made no sense. But, sword fights! Please do this movie.

    If Looks Could Kill (1991)

    Don't forget Roger Rees and Gabrielle Anwar. I love this stupid move.
