*And George Saunders, the writer, director, producer, and haunted artist surrounded by nekkid women, for saying, "Stay away from me, Bob, or I promise I will give you a reason to hate me."

Four stars.

Joe Bob's Find that Flick
This week's brain-bruiser comes from... Scott B. Denning of Bernalillo, N.M.:

"The setting is Mars. Our hero and heroine are sharing a pensive moment, gazing out across the windswept sand dunes on which they have landed their ship.

"She shivers, drawing him closer, and says, 'It's so, so...unearthly!' He looks about and replies, 'Yep--it's another planet, all right.'

"I was so stunned by the elegance of this dialogue I completely blanked out the title of the movie, and have not been able to recall it.

"I would like to find a copy, though, because it so perfectly catches the spirit of the space-schlock of the '50s and '60s."

A video will be awarded to the correct answer. (The winner chooses from a list of about a thousand titles.) In the event of a tie, a drawing will be held.
