Believe it or not I’m actually contemplating 1981’s Taps.  It’s one of those movies that I remember seeing about 1000 times after my parents had picked up HBO for the first time.  It was like the only thing on.  Well, that and maybe Stripes (another movie I could probably recite by heart).  There’s just something about watching a young Timothy Hutton and Sean Penn act along side the immensely talented George C. Scott.  Or maybe I want to peer into the eyes of Tom Cruise and look for that early glimmer of madness, compare it to the look he had while jumping on Oprah’s couch.  I’m fairly confident we’ll see that same look.
