    I know it's on all the time on TNT, but I watched it today for the first time in a while. Damn fine movie.

    I watched most of it, too. Wonderful movie. I'd like to go to the crossroads near Canadian, Texas, where the final shots were filmed.

    Hanks should have won best actor for this. He's on screen alone for what, two hours?
    He actually made you feel sorry for a volleyball at one point.

    The scene where he rams the skate into his tooth is painful to watch. In fact, I've never watched it since the first time I saw it. I watched it last night and again today. Good stuff indeed.

    Instead of the crossroads where Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil?

    Some may think it's sentimental crap, but I was always a sucker for the monologue near the end. Of course, I'm a sucker for the scene when Rudy opens up the envelope and finds out he's getting into Notre Dame.

    Anyway ...

    Not to nitpick, but it's Cast Away.

    I always wondered whether he ever fucked the volleyball.

    I mean, you're all alone, wouldn't you get volley-curious? Even if its to just finish on Wilson's grill?

    I bet he did.

    I didn't see a hole in Wilson.

    So... say the end of the movie was 3 minutes later. You think he went back for lil' Miss Artist?

    I liked it. It's a rare actor who can make a movie where it's just him and a volleyball for most of it work.

    I'm not saying it was full-on penetration, how could it be? I'm just saying that he used Wilson to pleasure himself. Who knows? Maybe you can deflate a volleyball in a certain way to get your rocks off. Air rushing out of the blowhole, weird contours and shapes, the texture, all alone on a desert island, I wouldn't rule out doing the nasty with a volleyball for anyone, not even Tom Hanks. I wasn't there, I don't know.

    I also know that probably clinically qualifies as masturbation, and that would usually be right. But since Wilson became an entity and a personality all its own to Tom Hanks, he probably thought he was fucking Wilson. So its like who's reality is really reality, here?

    We'll never know, but oh yeah, I think he fucked the hell out that volleyball all right.
