Today's post is brought to you by the letter C and the number 12

First, the last movie list:

Burt Reynolds, Dom DeLuise, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Jackie Chan, Roger Moore - Cannonball Run
Richard Dreyfuss, Olympia Dukakis, William H. Macy, Glenne Headley, Jay Thomas - Mr. Holland's Opus
Dustin Hoffman, Meryl Streep, Jane Alexander, Justin Henry - Kramer vs. Kramer
Henry Thomas, Drew Barrymore, Dee Wallace, Peter Coyote - E.T.
Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, Gary Busey - Lethal Weapon 1
Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman, Bonnie Bedelia, Reginald VelJohnson - Die Hard (NOT Die Hard 3, which does not feature either Bedelia or VelJohnson, I believe).
Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, Tom Skerritt, Michael Ironside, Kelly McGillis - Top Gun
Elijah Wood, Morgan Freeman, Tea Leoni - Deep Impact
Nicolas Cage, Danny Aiello, Cher, Olympia Dukakis - Moonstruck
Tom Hanks, Gary Sinise, Bill Paxton, Kathleen Quinlan - Apollo 13

Austin gets 9.5, and will get a full 10 if he supports his comment that the Die Hard cast listed is in both Die Hard 1 and 3. Amy claimed she could get 7, but I'll leave it to her to prove herself on this list:

Meryl Streep, Joseph Mazzarino, David Straithairn, Kevin Bacon
Henry Fonda, Martin Balsam, E.G. Wallace, Jack Warden
Gregory Peck, Mary Badham, Robert Duvall, Alice Ghostley (IMDb helped here)
Roger Moore, Richard Kiel, Lois Chiles, Michael Lonsdale (IMDb again)
John Cleese, Kevin Kline, Michael Palin, Jamie Lee Curtis (today's gimme)
Michael Douglas, Annette Bening, Martin Sheen, Michael J. Fox (gimme #2)
John Cusack, Annette Bening, Anjelica Huston
Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, Madonna, Garry Marshall
Dustin Hoffman, Bill Murray, Geena Davis, Dabney Coleman
Robin Williams, Glenn Close, John Lithgow, Hume Cronyn, Jessica Tandy

And off you go.

BIG ups to Calgary and their stunning upset of Detroit. They are playing so well and I've got Kiprusoff in one of my pools, so I'm looking slightly geniusy. I wish the Leafs played with half the heart the Flames do. They are missing 5 regulars and continue to play well as a team, with everybody knowing their roles and sticking to them. The rest will help too, since I expect Colorado-San Jose to go the full 7.

Good luck tonight, boys in blue. A win tonight goes a long way to restoring my faith in you.

Well, I think that's it for now. Have y'self a good one.
