After a long drought

We've started watching movies again. I taped Chicago from the broadcast version, and thought it was crap. This weekend, we saw Boiler Room (2000). I still haven't seen Wall Street (1987) or Glengarry Glen Ross (1992). The only Mamet I remember is American Buffalo (1996), and I found it so excruciatingly boring I didn't finish it. (I note that Mamet is announced as a writer for the forthcoming Halloween: Retribution [2006]; is this some kind of joke?) We also saw Criminal (2004); we liked them both a lot. I didn't realize the latter was a remake of Nueve reinas (2000), until it was over. Hd we known, we should've watched that instead.
