Allah peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!
I now announce this the new game! Because everyone’s just tagboarding and trying to rack up record numbers in their comments. Come up with a funny caption for this soon-to-be-legendary picture.
Got to see Road to Perdition tonight. Holy crap do I love it. Immaculately shot, you can’t find a single bad shot in the film. Good script, acting, sound (Dear God please don’t let yourself watch this in a theater with shitty sound): this is how you adapt something. Having read the original graphic novel it was based on (which is available at Not Page One), one of the reasons I now love the movie so much is because it had everything I wanted to see in the book (not that it’s bad, but it’s got a slightly different focus). The only thing I can complain about, and it’s a minor one at that, is that the score is a little too generous. It kept calling attention to itself, and there were some scenes where I thought it would be more effective to not have music. Sometimes it feels as if they’re only doing it for the benefit of the less-intelligent audience members who have to be cued “This is a sad scene.” Apart from that, though, this is now my favorite film so far this year.
