    Aww, I'd forgotten about him. Poor little feller.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    Brazil, and Baron Van Munchausen were definitely offbeat.

    Two choice for me would be Time Bandits and Remo Williams as far as ones I've enjoyed.

    Two choices for ones I haven't enjoyed would be Blue Velvet and Repo Man.

    Oh man, some good ones here. Rat Race, Time Bandits, Remo Williams, 8 Heads in a Duffel Bag...All good movies.

    I've always liked "Better Off Dead", and that's the ultimate in offbeat movies.

    I just thought of another, "After Dark".

    See, I loved "Rat Race", but I wouldn't consider it "offbeat"...

    Being John Malkovich...now that's offbeat, and I didn't like it at all...

    Would "Moulin Rouge" be considered offbeat?

    I didn't like Being John Malkovich, either.

    Remo Williams was mildly enjoyable, but I'd read so many of the books that I couldn't help but be disappointed by what I saw on-screen. I'm sure if I had not read any of the books, I would have been more pleased by the movie.

    ah, see...this is why reading is a bad thing

    Actually, I wouldn't necessarily promote reading the Remo Williams series. Lots of carnage and sex and swearing and stuff. Not great literature, but perfect for a hormonally-supercharged teen like I was when I read those books.

    So, the only thing that's changed is that you're not a teen, Paulie?

    I watched Moulin Rouge the other day...Well, about half of it, until my wife made me turn it. I actually thought it wasn't half bad. Nothing I'd go see in a theater, but I applaud the bold style. Except that I had to listen to a couple of terrible versions of "Your Song"
