    Agree with drakulie. I think its a remake of a spanish movie featuring penelope cruz.

    What if he could roll his "R"s? Would that make him any more desireable?

    The original film, called Abre Los Ojos was amazing because it was directed by Alejandro AmenĂ¡bar and he is a great filmmaker. So when I saw Vanilla Sky, the feeling of the original was always in my eyes so I liked it.

    Understandably so. UH has lights all night but they've disabled some of them so some parts of it are dark and some parts are lit. Sometimes you just get that urge to play. Me and my buddies used to play midnight tennis a lot when we didn't feel like going out.

    Anyway back on topic. Yeah Vanilla sky. WEEEEIIIIRRD!! though cameron diaz and penelope cruz do make up for some of that :)

    They used to be really good courts. They are well maintained still for how long they have been out there but they have 4 lit courts and 5 courts unlit. Used to be quite a gathering out there at night. Pretty social with even ratio of guys and gals. It dies out when they messed with the lights Grrr.

    Un tennis addicts want to play too :mrgreen:

    Well who knew you lived out in the boonies. I'm surprised they don't shut down all of Humble at 6pm :mrgreen: j/k. I used to live up in Kingwood for a while. Humble has really picked up with all the shops now. It doesn't look so ahem..ya know ;)

    yeah, i actually live in kingwood. i like it here, but as you probably know, there is nothing to do here...its gotten bigger, but not that much. i think humble has definately expanded, tho.

    Definitely know your pain. Such a long drive to do anything worthwhile. If it wasn't for this forum you'd probably go nutz. And gas is killer now too. HOpe you got a fuel efficient car.

    PS: Vanilla Sky still sucks. :mrgreen:

    That could be a good thing. My cousin had such a crappy car for a long time that he refused to drive when we went out. People thought he didn't have a car but he did. He was just embarrased.


    This is just not a cool car.

    Before you even think of complaining, you guys still pay the least amount for your fuel compared to the rest of the world.

    Although I like where you're going with this and appreciate that you remember my fondness for a certain accent...they must also be straight....and I don't don't care what anyone says.... Tom Cruise is NOT straight. PS Not that there's anything wrong with that...

    Anything film with Tom Cruise trying to "act" in it is going to be bad. I didn't see the remake, but I saw the original which was so bad that I wanted to walk out, but as I was watching it on video, in a friend's living room, I forced myself to sit through it.
