More Movies I Want to See

Oprah’s Book Club
Starring: Edward Norton and Oprah Winfrey
Psychological drama about how Norton meets Oprah and they start a book club. Many people join the club, but after they read the books they’re not allowed to talk about them. “If this is your first night at Oprah’s book club, you have to read.” In the end you find out that Norton is a figment of Oprah’s imagination, but nobody else wanted to say anything to her because she’s so powerful that she could destroy them.

Jesus’ Thirteen
Jesus and his Apostles carry out an elaborate scheme to steal money from Ceasar’s Palace.

The Stewart Redemption
Sodomy abounds in this dramatic tale of Martha Stewart’s stay in prison. (BTW, in the real movie, he should have gotten manslaughter instead. That jury had to be rigged.)

The Blair, Nebraska Project
Scary movie filmed on handheld camcorders. It’s scary because Iowa is right there (but they never actually show Iowa in the movie).

And, the one for legal-type people:
Collateral Estoppel
Starring: Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx, and Jada Pinkett Smith
Thriller about how Jada sued Tom, Jada won, and in Jamie’s subsequent suit against Tom, Tom is not allowed to contest issues that were actually litigated and necessary to the Jada v. Tom decision. You’ll be on the edge of your bench! The ABA gives it 5 out of 5.

  1. "I see Iowa People!"

    Good stuff...

    Collateral Estoppel would be a good name for a movie, however.
