    Lonesome Dove: Possibly the greatest movie of all time based on the greatest secular book of all time coupled with 2 brilliant actors, amazing character development and the single coolest named character in film or print.



    If I just remove punctuation, it still counts as one sentence, right???

    You probably missed LOTR. I mean, who could touch those books.

    Don't listen to him, cm. He thinks going to a movie is ordering pay per view.

    Jackson did a really good job, but yeah, casting Liv and allowing her to rescript the movie for her was a bit of an upset.

    ▲Home theater▲ but, "What-up?"

    Perhaps you misread me here. I was agreeing with you the story was good. If it is done well, the movie will be great. My imagination tends to be more spectacular than quite a few movie attempts, however. So, my advice is still, wait for the reviews. If they seem okay, go see it but don't let a movie ruin the book like Eragon ruined the book for a few people. Thankfully I read the book first. The movie didn't grab me much at all.

    Maybe we are of two differening opinions here. Me: "The book is usually much better than the movie."

    I can think of a few cases where that is not so (Star Wars for instance), but to me, it is an exception to the rule. I am a reader over and against a movie-goer though, so you called that right.

    Tends to be, but there are great exceptions like Forrest Gump. I even thought Sense and Sensibility played better with Thompson's Oscar turn as screen adapter than left on the page, shocking as that might seem.

    I can think of a few cases where that is not so (Star Wars for instance), but to me, it is an exception to the rule.
    See, I was disappointed in the first Star Wars film because I'd read the book and what I had in my head was more interesting...loved it the second time through because I approached without my own agenda.

    I am a reader over and against a movie-goer though, so you called that right.
    I don't know that I can choose between them, though only if we include the Golden Age. Film has been a series of islands of quality in a sea of special effect driven, rehash modeled mediocrity for a great deal of the last few decades.

    A good enough action film, but I thought it had little heart to it. Of the Marvel movies...I'd say IM2, Captain and the last X-Men were all a cut above this one as whole experience. Haven't seen the last Batman yet.

    Taken 2? The trailer made me cringe. And I liked the first one.

    I'm waiting on Ender's Game, the next Bond and, of course, The Hobbit.
    Ender's Game is definitely on my must see list with The Hobbit which I heard they broke up into three movies now. Don't know that I like that if it deviates too much from the book. I like James Craig as James Bond. But at the prices they charge, I think I can wait.

    Prometheus - Very good movie with very good acting and special effects. Looking forward to the sequel.

    It was a very good miniseries on TV. I thought we were talking about movies?

    I know of a good "one sentence" review of a play.

    In 1951, Walter Kerr's review of the play "I am a camera":

    "Me no Leica."
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.
