After listening to the "Dirt" album by Alice in Chains for the hundredth time, I turned to Michael and said, "I just realized that all the lyrics written by Layne Staley are about drugs and all the lyrics written by Jerry Cantrell are about death."

"Yup. And we know who won that face-off," he said.

I nodded. Beat. Then we said in unison, "Death."

.................................................

Over the holidays Michael and I were flipping channels one day and came across "Attack of the Clones" on television. It sparked a good-natured debate on the merits of the first three episodes of the Star Wars epic. Michael conceded that George Lucas should not have directed any of them, he should have handed directorial duty over to someone like Spielberg. THAT lead us to conjure up a list of directors who, although completely wrong for the job, might have produced a more interesting, if not necessarily better Star Wars trilogy. Some highlights:

Woody Allen
Martin Scorsese
Pedro Almodovar
John Carpenter
Michael Bay
Clint Eastwood
Penny Marshall

and my personal favorite...

Spike Lee

I personally wish Quentin Tarantino had directed the prequels.

There would have been machine guns instead of light sabers, and Uma Thurman instead of Natalie Portman.

"Spike Lee"

"We didn't LAND on the force! the FORCE landed on US!"

"Clint Eastwood"

"Do ya feel lucky, Vader? WELL DO YA?"

""Death." "

death ALWAYS wins.

I vote for whomever directed SCARFACE.

I don't know. I think it's pretty catchy. I'm going to have to keep my eye out for a situation in which I can use that phrase.

oh! Paul Verhoven! then you'd have Star Wars with more overt fascist overtones, and topless Natalie Portman!

I hated Starship Troopers. Doogie Howser was the best thing about it.

I've never seen Robocop or Total Recall.

"Total Recall"

you're not missing anything. it has too much range required for Arnie to handle, and the story is a MESS.

"Robocop"

HOW can u not have seen robocop??? it's been on tv a million times!
IT'S A CLASSIC, I SAY!

(and clearly influenced by Batman and Judge Dredd comics).

There's just something about Robocop that has always squicked me out. He's...scary looking! And sounding! And I don't want to have nightmares!

I have nightmares (sometimes) n o matter what I watch!

HE LOOKS COOL! NOT SCARY!!!

and the dad later from "The 70's Show" plays the villain!
