    Finally saw the three-hour 1978 epic movie last night for the first time. I had avoided it because I thought most of the film would be war scenes. But it wasn't. I just couldn't take my eyes off the bearded and handsome young Robert De Niro. Good film.

    Tonight I watched "Jacknife," not as good, but still handsome.

    I think the only De Niro films that I really like where he is not bearded are "Awakenings" and "Falling in Love." Not a big fan of De Niro mobster/cop movies.

    How about you?

    I like most De Niro movies including the mobster/cop movies. The few that I do not like are usually one of his attempts at comedy. The Deer Hunter is one of my favorites and also Brazil, Casino, Cape Fear, Taxi Driver, and Raging Bull.

    I saw The Deer hunter many years ago! I liked it. I know the Russian roulette scene in the movie was the inspiration for the "Beer Hunter" drinking game!!
