    could have done without it's love story as well.
    The battle for Stalingrad was enough of a story.

      It's gotten to the point now that anything produced by Hollywood goes on my back burner list regardless of how cool the trailer looks.

      In fact, back when there was a regular Friday Night at the Movies series here i mentioned doing a diary on films that had great trailers but ultimately sucked. I should still do that sometime. Although it might be a bit lean on recent films, because i've seriously all but given up.

        but were good.
        Gene Siskle did not like La Bamba and thought The Buddy Holly Story was superior to it.
         Neither Siskle or Ebert like The first Blues Brothers movie.
        No look.
          But to your point I wasn't impressed with Sideways and was glad I saw it on DVD.
          It's hard for me to remember sometimes, they go in one eye and out the other.
          There is one movie I enjoy enormously that gets barely mentioned anywhere, you might like it. It's called The Zero Effect.
