Yesterday my buddy Bill Crider blogged about Cutthroat Island being a forgotten movie. Not by me. I still love this one and have decided I'm going to have to show it and the one below to my son. He's 13 and I can now totally corrupt his idea of heroes. These guys don't have to have super powers to man up. And Geena Davis is gorgeous in this film, as well as independent.
Tommy Lee Jones was relatively unknown when Nate and Hayes came out,, but boy did he explode onto the screen later. I saw this one about the time I watched The River Rat (which I wish would be released on DVD).
