A Handmaid's Tale -

Read the book for GCSEs so wanted to see the film, not quite sure to be honest, I knew the subject but I guess I didn't really like seeing it. If I recall the book I think it did a decent job, 6/10.

To Kill A Mockingbird -

Shamefully I've not read the book so I can't compare the two but I imagine the book is better. The film was good, especially for its time, I’d say 8/10.

Two Robert Duvall films, completely by coincidence.

Disney and Warner Brothers only agreed to let their characters be shown if they had an equal amount of screen time as the other.

Also apparently it's Who Framed Roger Rabbit with an ! rather than ? - doesn't make Grammatical sense but that's the story...

Ah well, if we're being pedantic, it's also THE Handmaid's Tale.

 

I have always avoided the film, afraid of being disappointed - I love the book so much.  Should I take the plunge and watch it, do you think, Gem?

Indeed you're right, the pedanticer becomes the pedanticee...

Hmm... well the book wasn't exactly enjoyable for me as I had to study it, I think if you read it for pleasure and enjoyed without the need of analysing the hell out of it then you may be disappointed. I just watched it for curiosity. Struggled visually with the handmaid went through with the Commander in his bedroom, made me a bit sick. The book doesn’t describe it as rape but when you see it, it clearly is. Also some other discrepancies but I won’t spoil if you do manage to hunt down a copy.

I'm an idiot so I posted this in the Stupid Annoying Pictures thread yesterday about A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, a very interesting film.

 

Last night I watched Seconds, a cracking little sci-fi/psychological thriller from 1966 about a depressed middle aged banker who pays for a very shady organisation to manufacture him a new identity (which involves faking his death and having extensive plastic surgery to change his appearance) and begins a new life as an artist living in a beach house in California. On the surface this seems like the perfect life for him, free from any responsibility, but deep down he begins to realise that it's no more fulfilling than his previous life and his mental state starts to unravel. Highly recommended, the ending in particular is shocking and brilliant.

He was also fantastic in My Cousin Vinny as well.

 

Just checked IMDB, last major film was The Good Shepherd in 2006. He's 72 now, so probably taking it easy.

Fantastic in Goodfellas, Casino and Home Alone 1&2.

 

 

also raging bull

damn remembering it that film is the definition of acting masterclass, especially from de niro

12 Angry Men - another classic for a lazy Sunday afternoon. I liked the concept and the camera work but it just didn't do it for me, 6.5/10.

Which one Gem, 1950's or 1990's?

Either way, I think the 1950's one was groundbreaking. But watching it now may not be as rewarding, as the concept has been done to death since.
