    Not a huge admirer of Ron Howard's work, but there's a few that stand out. I loved his mermaid story Splash when I was a kid, but I wasn't the inveterate, discerning movie fan I am now and didn't mind a bit of frivolity then. His other achievements are Jennifer Connelly's Dilemma flick, and her Oscar winning performance in schizo movie a Beautiful Mind. Plaudits should be reserved for the latter film mainly, but Jennifer's great thespian abilities in Dilemma salvaged what would other wise be a mediocre movie. I know she'll be great in the upcoming Noha film as well. If any one gets the chance, try and peep Howard's new ish Rush, about F1 drivers. Even if you're not au fait with F1 it still recommended, and is probably his finest accomplishment to date.

    Jay is the only person who can do it. The game thought he could open his mouth and say lame things about a grown man and others lil rappers ur there but when it comes to working and getting result you don't see them all they got in returne is a lot of lips saying things with out base or fact. I am happy Jay always prove him self in any thing he does which takes decades for many lames to comprehend. HOV IS THE REALESTAND BEST RAPPER ALIVE.
