Just read the reviews for All the King's Men, at rotten tomatoes. Overall percentage: 19%.

Why, am I not surprised? Watch the original, from 1949. It's terrific.

Wow, I just heard a review of it on NPR which was outright praising it. The guy couldn't say enough good stuff about it.

That reviewer is in the minority. The pieces I've read, are among the most savage I've ever set eyes on. The Wall Street Journal's, was relentless.
The trailer struck me as bad high school production, run amok.

I'll stick with the original.

The Last King of Scotland
Strangers With Candy


Wonder if any of them will make it to Freedom.

I've was really anticipating Brick and finally saw it the other day on DVD.

Something about Film Noir just does not translate to a high school setting. It was kind of enjoyable and quite an attempt, but just fell short. I thought the acting was generally good (the lead, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, was great). Even the dialogue would have good if in a different setting. But there were also a few funny scenes that seemed to be pointing out the obsurdity of this high-tension film noir setting at hs. In one of them Brendan (G-L) is meeting with the big gang boss, The Pin. But they are at The Pin's mom's house and she's making Brendan breakfast. Quite funny.

I still have to see this. I appreciate the review. I thought the idea of basically combining John Hughes with Raymond Chandler was a really innovative one (particularly given all of the crap Hollywood seems to be producing these days).

It was very good! And I just saw "Hard Candy" one of the best films of 2005! very underrated! It got no media coverage, it is worth checking!

Second that, it was very good. Unbelievably disturbing though. Really puts you off any girl under the age of 21, even if you're under that age yourself

Looking forward to Children of Man and The Guardian.

yea man I'm with you on that. I wonder if Tom Cruise is still slated to play Tony Stark, as was the rumor.

on a related note, I'm looking forward to Ghost Rider early 07.

It's been pretty much confirmed that Stark's now being played by Robert Downey Jr.

Which makes sense when you think about it - substance abuse problem, wealthy, in the public eye, flies around in a robot suit: It's practically The Robert Downey Jr Story.
