Elliott I do that too when I don't know actors names...too funny
I knew his name but most people really don't know lesser known actors names so its just easier to say Elliot from ET, etc. That way maybe someone will say "No schitzet, that kid from ET is still doing movies? Damn, I might want to check that out."
Now if I said Henry Thomas (Elliot) or Sean Patrick Flanary (young IJ), most people will say "Who?. That movie must be crap. I'm not going to watch that."
So from now on, whenever Mikey D gives one of his reviews he's going to name actors by their well know roles.
Scott, I may also have to try "you pick the movie this time and I'll pick the movie next time" way that you and your wife do. I asked my wife if she wanted to see Daredevil, she had no interest in it, I had no interest in her chick flick that she wanted to see, so we didn't go to the movies that night, she farted around on the computer and I watched some crappy movie on tv. What a way to spend a Saturday night Maybe this might alleviate that problem
