The Criterion Collection

Good: releases superb editions of some of the greatest films ever made (including 99 of my top 250!)

Bad: has become too synonymous with "quality release" (despite several barebones and/or flawed products) to the point where people clamor for Criterion editions of films that already have outstanding releases

William H. Macy

GOOD: Comes off as a decent and likable fellow (which I can confirm from people who have worked with him). All of his characters have a core sweetness that's different from other actors working today.

BAD: That similar core gives a sameness to his characters. He's so good at choosing different types of roles it's taken me awhile to notice how limited his range is. Whether good or bad, he's always some form of a sad sack, barely hiding bitterness over his characters place in the world.

Casablanca (the movie)

Good: A perfect meeting  of good direction, performances, script and tone, with some amazing supporting character actors.

Bad: Itís all good, but not great.  If I didnít have lines from this movie constantly thrown in my face, I wouldnít remember it.

Surprised you didn't go with the fact that his wife is a criminal for the BAD here.

That seems like a low and easy road to take. Coming up with something bad about Macy as an artist. That's tough.

Though not as tough as saying something bad about Roger Deakins.

I'm not. I even know people who've worked with Deakins. The man's a saint.
