Just wanted to recommend this to you guys, I just saw it and its a terrific movie. Kind of "A beautiful mind-ish" type movie, and its one of those that really makes me see the little bit of myself in the character. It was awesome to see that huge albatross of a plane he perservered to build even through his trying mental illness. Seeing that huge plane made me think of Cadillacs and why we build some of the best cars in the world too!. Kinda like a big Caddy of the air.

mmmmm.....Spruce Goose.....hehe. I love that plane. :D I've been meaning to go see that, but haven't had the chance. I did catch the documentary on the History Channel about him. That plane he built to break the world speed record was pretty cool looking. It's a shame he developed Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, just think what he could have accomplished if he hadn't become a recluse, living in hotels. :helpless:

Did they say whether he really survived two plane crashes?

I know he survived the one where he crashed into the side of the hotel, but I don't remember what the other crash was. He was pretty messed up when they pulled him out of that one.

Anyone seen Flight of the Phoenix yet? It looks like they took the original movie and added all the crappy Hollywood glitz to it (haven't seen it yet). BTW the original was a pretty cool movie.

Loved the original Flight of the Phoenix! Awsome movie! 1966?

Ian, I can't stand that Leonardo Decaprio for some reason. It's like he never left puberty or something. He's overrated imo but I'm sure it's a good movie.

I want to see that Sky Captain movie with Jude Law as I hear it's good also.

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow was a pretty good movie. My favorite thing about it was the way it was "filmed". It had that classic "vaseline on the lens" look that classic movies like Casablanca had. Very cool effect.
