But Kline provided some comedic moments that make me wish I saw him in more films these days.  I have to watch Dave or A Fish Called Wanda again soon.

I got 55 minutes into The Ice Storm before my DVD copy froze (and it turned out it had scratches all over the bottom of it, first time that has happened with Netflix for me), but he was excellent. One of my favorite actors.

Good Will Hunting

Why is this film so damn good?
FroHam, I hear what you're saying...

...and you're completely right.  (at last)   ;D

Buried

Bleh, I liked almost nothing about this. There's really nothing clever about the story, and it earns absolutely none of the emotion it tries to play. The suspense isn't suspenseful, and the writing is so frustratingly contrived I wanted to stop it several times. I feel bad for Ryan Reynolds, because he's clearly giving it his best, but the movie was just a very infuriating experience.

It's a perfectly written, perfectly directed, perfectly acted perfectly perfect little movie. Not a single false note in the whole thing.

I must have seen a different movie.  Every single moment with Robin Williams is a false note.

Leave it to Williams to f*ck up an otherwise somewhat okay movie.

You speak as though I am ever wrong ;D

I have heard the criticism that the film is too sentimental. To this I can also respond that I just now watched Paths of Glory for the first time in many years, and damn, even Kubrick was a sentimentalist. The ability for a film to make you feel empathy for a character is never a detriment. Never. Not that anyone here argued that about the film, just other places I've read.

Paths of Glory

Hmm. What else can I really say about this? It's fantastic. Anything else? It's uber awesome. I think that about sums it up.

Is that all you got?  I guess I agree, but I just had a little more to say about it.
