Re: SAHARA, the movie
- I agree wait and see, if a few dont like the choice go bitch
somewhere else. continually complaining about and putting down one
of the best authors of our time, and most of our's favorite, stop
reading his books dont go see the movie. You made your point you
dont like the choice. MOVE ON.

make my decide on if MM does a good DP.
