I just saw Good Night and Good Luck for the first time. All of the constant name-dropping was hard to follow at times, with so many characters, but overall it was pretty fantastic, despite my being unfamiliar with the story's history. At the end, I had a "that's it" type of feeling, because I thought they were going to go a little further with it, particularly showcasing those last five episodes. Still, I was content with the way it ended. Obviously the cast was terrific, and Strathairn was great in his television monologues.

71%.

More or less an adequate motion picture depiction of the Finchter Novel. The true, the only, and the dominant side of the human mind. The Dark Side. I would not mind nor restrain Jack or Maurice from having their way if I were you. They have what it takes to become the leaders of your race; not Ralph and his silly morals nor Piggy in his blubbery patheticness. My only complaint lied in the manifestation of myself. But alas, you don't have the proper technology nor the courage to pursue that.

Oliver Twist (Polanski) - 9/10

Anyone who doesn't like this version of the film has not read the book. The film hits on Dicken's dark humor and gross characterizations perfectly. I was very surprised to see Polanski match the novel's atmosphere because it is so different than what he has created in his other films. Very well filmed, the country side scenes are beautiful and best of all, he cuts the overly-convenient and beyond plausible chain of events that lead to the ending in the novel.

One of the best dedicated book to screen adaptations I've seen (along with Lean's Great Expectations).

The International



7/10

Decent movie that leaves you wanting more . Some of the shots of the different countries are pretty amazing though.

Fun as hell. Pretty much what I expected from the research that I did. It rips from about 8-10 movies, but I don't care. It's a guilty pleasure blast.

6/10

I know I've watched more movies than that since the last time I posted in here, but I can't remember them.
I feel as though I would have loved A Fistful of Dollars if I hadn't seen Yojimbo first. Almost every character, every scene is a shameless and at any rate, inferior, ripoff of Yojimbo.

Kurosawa doesn't do it for me. Totally didn't dig "Seven Samurai" or "Yojimbo."
