    I'm wondering how much of a generation gap thing we have going on SportsJournalists.com? I mentioned Sophie's Choice on Alma's thread (to me one of the greatest films ever made)... Then I realized people here may have only been babies when it came out... and haven't had a chance to see it.

    Just curious.

    Incredible film. One of the best ever made.

    Kate Winslet is a fine actress... Mr. Lugs secret crush, I think...

    But Titanic was her most famous role-- her biggest role. That was a movie where the ship and the director were the stars-- not the actors, and certainly not the script.

    And she's young. How can you have seen Sophie's Choice and list a Winslet or a Johnny Depp in the same company?

    I think I was about 13 or 14 when it came out.

    No idea if I saw it or not.

    Perhaps my favorite book. I might have to watch the movie again. I remember being disappointed in it.

    If you voted "not sure," that probably means you haven't seen it.

    I think there's a scene in it that's more gut-wrenching than... say, the opening scene of Saving Private Ryan.

    It's almost like the answer is too obvious. Who are the best male and female actors working? Daniel Day Lewis and Meryl Streep. Would anyone argue against that?
  8. I've seen the porn version.

    Does that count?

    I thought that was called "Sophie's Moist."

    Her choice takes on an entire new meaning now.

    My goal is to have someone start a thread titled ____ Spawned by Dooley's Thread.

    As if. :-\
