Recent DVDs and brief reviews:

Six Degrees of Separation: I had seen it before, and it didn't really offer any great revelations on a second viewing, except that Will Smith wasn't always annoying.

The Aviator: Excellent movie. I never lost interest. Leonardo still looks a little young to take seriously, but he pulled it off. Too bad Howard Hughes couldn't get himself some Zoloft.

The Black Stallion: When Cosmo put this on our list, I wasn't eager to watch. I hadn't seen it since I was a kid, and didn't really have any desire to watch it again. But seeing it now, as an adult, I realize that it's really one of the best movies I've ever seen. Even Mickey Rooney was good. I looked up the star, Kelly Reno, on IMDB, and it turns out he's a truck driver now.
