First of all, great line, and well said -- she has always been just that.

But second of all, you could have done it. You could have delivered your lines perfectly. And over time, they would have worked.

But of course, for that perfect result ... you might have had to get the role instead of Bill Murray.

Andie was, and is, sensational.

If you're pretty sure, I'm certain. Thanks for that.

That said, I'd take the desert isle with either one. And wouldn't be able to mumble much at either. Props to Tack.

I'm in the hospital with Dad tonight, so truth is, concentration is suboptimal. Grateful for the distraction though.

The entire opening, flying over Iceland; is pure majestic beauty. ...The vistas are simply luminously gorgeous. ...Ridley is a true visionary artist.

Same here; I luv that flick, even with all the stupid dialog from most actors/actresses (script). ...Humans.

* Movies are for fun sometimes, and science-fiction flicks are fictive. ...Just like the dialog.
But in this one, the stupid dialog was deliberate; to contrast better with the much higher alien's intelligence.

Can you dig it.
