No way it can be better than Malkovich.


I prefer Malkovich but it's a lot closer than you think. Ghost World is really good--it put Scarlett Johansson on the map. ;-D

That was more of a joke directed toward Treat than anything. I haven't seen Ghost World. Maybe I'll check it out - but even still, it would have to be pretty good to overtake BJM.

You should do a One Day Battle of John Cusack movies. For me it would be Grosse Pointe Blank, but then I'm a sucker for tender romantic movies. :-b

I just watched High Fidelity about a month ago, and it's just not his best. It was better the first time I saw it half a life ago, but this last time... I don't know. There was something missing.

I really like Gross Point Blank too but I haven't seen it is quite a while.

High Fidelity would get my vote, but it's hard to not give my #1 Cusack vote to Better Off Dead or One Crazy Summer.

John Cusack was funny as crap in Must Love Dogs. You should see it if you haven't yet. The ending kind of stunk, but the rest of the movie was really good.

Gross Pointe Blank is my favorite.


I didn't think either of these movies were all that. Both were worth watching... once. I remember the scene where John Malkovich was controlled like a puppet was awesome, but other than that it was just weird.

Oh, and The Horse Whisperer put Scarlett Johansen on the map. At least that's where I first remember seeing her.
