Obviously, you have not seen "Robin Hood - Prince of Thieves"
Not to say he has not made several good ones - I may have to check this one out ...
True...forgot that one.
I liked Tin Cup, Dances With Wolves, Water World...was he in No Way Out? I didn't see The Postman but heard some bad things...The Guardian I liked...Open Range was enjoyable...despite the revies and the somewhat artistic licence afforded JFK, I liked it...The Bodyguard was alright...Bull Durham (mind you, the fact I think Susan Sarrandon is one of the sexiest woman alive may have swung that one)...Wyatt Earp...and The Untouchables...A Perfect World I thought was brilliant.
I think, personally, he gets a raw deal from critics...I think they've just came to hate him and therefore just pony up with some bad reviews. Certainly I've seen movies he's been criticsed for (probably most of the above) and thought they were enjoyable films.
The Postman is one of his better movies. The book by David Brin is way, way better than the movie of course, but the movie does a passable job of capturing the spirit of the book. Actually, Will Patton steals the show as his depiction of the maniacal bad guy is awesome.
