Grrr....I replied once and then my computer glitched!

Now the short and sweet version...Jim would be motivated by ALL of these. My personal favs mentioned here are Highlander & Ladyhawke. I'll add Lost Boys...curious to see what others would add...especially Brian, the new Martin and Vin! xxx JD

> (3) The scene in Ladyhawke where the two almost meet, but
