    4. Carrie
    5. Sisters (another early classic)
    6. Mission: Impossible -...

    Ken Burns seems a little plastic to me.
    I liked Civil War but I thought his baseball piece was flacid.
    I did not know that he did a Jazz piece. How was that?

    Dr Death and his bizzarre aspirations

    What a movie. Starts off with a look at a guy, Fred Leuchter, who seemingly stumbles upon an occupation as an electric chair inventor. The thought of taking on electric chair jobs is creepy enough,...
