@crypt,

I think the studios just need to back off and allow the filmmakers to just do a film with a concise story; one with a beginning, middle and end; none of this sequel and 3D crap attached to it where everything has to end on a cliffhanger where the villain survives in the last moment and everyone else dies... We'll see...

@crypt,

Yeah, I'll watch the new Chainsaw flick, but I'm going in with zero expectations. And from the way they've avoided much plot in the previous films, I'm hoping they actually try to develop something interesting with the whole Leatherface relation thing...

@XxNickTheFilmCriticXx,

Haha, name change again? Nice. And yeah, I think a lot of people will love this flick mainly due to Day Lewis, but I just felt it a pretentious bore. My girlfriend, however, loved it. Like LOVED it. So, yeah, I'm willing to bet I'll be in the minority on this one... Not that I'm not used to that by now...

@slysnide,

Yeah, I actually saw it again and Javier really does remain one of the strongest links in the chain. The second viewing for me was personally a bit weaker; I didn't enjoy it as much; but Javier's scenes remained standouts.

@thedude-abides,

Yeah, I'd definitely dig hearing your thoughts once you see it as I felt as though i was in the definite minority while at the screening. It felt too bloated and typical to me; displayed nothing people weren't already told in elementary school... Though it does go to great lengths to make him seem far simpler a man than what some more controversial doc*mentation records.

@skywise,

Thanks, man! And yeah, my girlfriend is obsessed with Daniel Day-Lewis and made sure of informing me that he ONLY takes roles that he wants to. It's kind of testament to how good he is/how much filmmakers want him. As for the battle scenes, sadly, those only take up MAYBE five three minutes of the entire story. While the first display of warfare is realistic and gritty, it's extremely brief. The next few that follow are like literally just images (like a few buildings on fire).

@corey,

Thanks, man! And yeah, his performance is the only worthwhile thing... But I'm not sure if you'd like to watch him in a drab movie for nearly three hours...

@the-movieghost,

Yeah, I'd definitely recommend SKYFALL over this one; I honestly don't think you'll be missing much if you don't bother with LINCOLN.

As for the capitalization of the titles; when I do script coverage and analysis work, a lot of the time (or depending on who's contracting), when writing an analysis/coverage, one capitalizes the character name the first time they appear or the film's title/other film titles. I just happen to maintain that during my reviews as well (outside of character names that is).

Bryan Yentz reviewed the movie Lincoln

"... There is an incredibly talented cast... yet rarely did I find myself ingrained with anything they were saying as a majority of scenes came off as over-exaggerating stage performers reciting instruction manuals on legislature by way of Shakespeare..."

@slysnide,

Thanks, man! And yeah, while I felt CASINO to be the most realistic of the bunch as it was far more dramatic than action-oriented, I felt this version the most grounded in terms of relationships and character building. As for Q, he was decent enough in this version yet he's not that pivotal (maybe ten minutes of screen time? If that?), unlike Cleese, however, his humor is more subtle and witty and fits in better to the film's overall tone. So, yes, while I was indifferent about the character in SKYFALL, I still think the alteration in actor and portrayal to be far more suiting. And if you've been a fan that long, I think you'll definitely dig this one. When I told my buddy (who loves the Bond flicks) that I actually didn't hate it, he just told me, "If you actually found it decent, then that means I'll love it."
