  1. SO… am I to assume the Gregory Peck critique was dedicated to Jess Daily?? (Perhaps not). I can’t really disagree with much of what was said, but give the guy a break. No doubt coming in at #12 is a bit much when considering who follows to rake up the debris, but – okay – I can’t really argue with all that was said. But… To Kill a Mockingbird-?! – that simply clinched the deal. It’s kinda like Meredith Willson and The Music Man. He may have only written one really great show – but WHAT a show. Same with Peck’s role in Mockingbird. It just worked. Perhaps he was born to play only that role and somehow he was able to build a career both before and after that stellar moment. But maybe with Part 2 of your critique will come some wonderful revelations yet to be revealed. I can’t wait to hear them; or is that more like an ‘it’-?

  2. Okay, I just listened to the “discussion” for W.S. Money Never Sleeps. I haven’t seen the film as I couldn’t figure out how I’d get back the 133 minutes (136 minutes running time at Cannes, hmm…) that would be extracted from my life.

    For the most part, I’ve sworn-off seeing most new films and have felt guilty about missing the ‘experience’. But as more and more of those I trust continue to report far less than passable experiences, I somehow feel vindicated for having let the parade pass me by. Thanks for adding to the litany of bad news from Hollywood’s current crop of “product” that’s supposed to pass for entertaining fair. (Maybe what Tinseltown needs is a remake of “The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!?”) It IS Halloween, afterall.
