Fair enough, but it's still a terrible movie.

I should've kept my mouth shut about Jude Law.

I don't care for Jude Law (or Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise, Keanu Reeves, Brad Pitt among others..) but yet each actor has a handful of movies which I adore.

Midnight in the Garden ...
Road to Perdition
Closer
Gattaca
...

Cold Mountain, by the way, is an even better book. Charles Frazier. Check it out.
Sorry, NSW. Your additional support is duly noted.

Although I heard Frazier's book was boring as fuck.

What I am curious to know is how much of the screenplay, namely the dialogue, is from Minghella and not directly adapted. Because most of the beautiful language in The English Patient came from him, and not from Ondaatje's novel, which was poetic but had very little dialogue.

Ironically, adapted screenplay is one of the few Oscars The English Patient didn't win, though it was arguablly the award it deserved the most.

So who's going to see The Brave One this weekend? Normally I'd probably pass, but I'm a big Neil Jordan fan. I recently saw Breakfast on Pluto and was reminded what a great filmmaker he was.

Definitely not seeing The Brave One any time soon.

Too much else on the plate in coming weeks.

I'm likely seeing Eastern Promises tomorrow, and then hopefully Jesse James, Darjeeling, Lust Caution, Across The Universe, and maybe Resident Evil 3 (don't ask) in coming weeks.

Has anyone seen the trailer for the film adapation of The Kite Runner?

If it's anywhere near as great as the book I'll be a happy camper.

Darjeeling's coming soon.

I'd also still like to see Once and The King of Kong sooner or later too, as they're both playing at my local Landmark theater.

I was kinda disappointed with it. It feels like they tried to make a feel-good American spin on it when it's anything BUT a book on the U.S.

I loved the book, but, my attention span is from another century, so maybe it's boring to today's reader. I don't know.

Re-watched Broadcast News last night. Love that film, and it's got one of my favorite lines of all-time in it...

Boss to an employee he just laid off:

"If there's ever anything I can do for you, you just let me know"

Laid off employee to boss:

"Well, I certainly hope you'll die soon"

So hold on, I haven't been keeping up (obviously); Death Proof is out on September 18 but what happened to Planet Terror?

Did Planet Terror have a much longer original cut? I knew Tarantino had shot something feature length but I was under the impression that Rodriguez kept his segment nearer to what was originally envisioned.

I think it got knocked around way too much by the critics (even those who liked Grindhouse overal), and while it may not have impressed as much as Death Proof on a cinematic level, it was a hell of a lot of fun, and I think it's easier to sit through on multiple viewings.
