Can anyone recommend any good action, suspense, or murder mystery videos?

(I have been homebound with this back thing and maybe for a few weeks more. My epidural shots really crippled me......)

I know it's a few years old but "The Rock" is awesome if you haven't seen it. "The Seige" is also a good one even though it's a few years old too. Kinda brings what's happening now into a new light.

Hope ya get to feeling better.

Grunt,

Sure hope it works out for ya. Four weeks ago I was crawling on all fours in tears at 3AM with sciatica. Muscle relaxers and naproxen didn't do much. Now I'm in physical therapy and it helps. In my case it's an old case that cropped up again but this time in the good leg(left toes are numb). I've got three discs encroaching on th lower spinal canal. I told the doctor, " Ya ain't takin' my boat. So work around it.".

Entrapment with Sean Connery is a favorite and Zeta Jones ain't hard to take either. [img]../images/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

Get the Lonesome Dove series, even if you've seen it before. Every time I watched it I picked up more from it.

One of the best movies, that really pertains to what is going on in the world is Swordfish, with Haley Berry and John Travolta. It really has some great ideas to it. Really worth watching

Thanks again. Liked all the ones I saw so far. Didn't get to the last 3 posts yet.

Wow "Bandit" is maybe one of the best well at least most fun movies I ever saw!!!!! I recommend it to everyone!!

My local stores did not have Swordfish - all copies were out but I'll try again.
