Anyone see this? It was pretty intense.. overall great acting, decent plot.. I rate it 4/5...I also must admit Meryl Streep was sexy in a scene, YIKES never thought I would say that about such an old woman

Just on a side note, I saw that new tom cruise movie, Collateral, last night and it fucking sucked monkey balls.

Carry on.

I saw the village a couple days ago

A lot of people think it sucked, but the twist was definitely interesting

I'd give it a 3/5

The original version of, "The manchurian Candidate," was very good; especially, when framed within the political climate of its time. If you're a student of history, then I highly recommend the original.

However, I'm staging a personal, "wait 'till it comes out on cable," boycott of the remake, as I do with most remakes. I'll not cross that picket-line until Hollywood gets some class, and starts hiring some writers! :laugh:

PS: I'm an old coot, who's also against the colorizing black and white films... :wink:

I just saw the Bourne Supremacy last night and I thought it was a great movie.  Very entertaining.  :smile:  :thumbup:

Yeah, the original film was a Cold War masterpiece. It's right up there with, "On the Beach," and, "Fail-Safe." It was also highly intertwined with its contemporary political climate. Here's a couple of pieces of trivia about that...

"Prior to commissioning of the book as a movie, Arthur Krim, the then President of United Artists and Finance Chairman of the Democratic Party, is known to have felt uneasy about its subject matter. President John F. Kennedy, as a favor to his friend Frank Sinatra, called Krim to let him know that he had no objection to a film version being made.

After John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963, the film was pulled from circulation by owner Frank Sinatra, who was concerned that some would draw parallels between Lee Harvey Oswald and the film's brainwashed assassin. (He had also heard a rumor that Oswald saw the film before killing Kennedy.) After nearly 25 years, Sinatra relented and allowed a re-release in 1987."


Although, I was born in the sixties, I didn't get to see the movie until after the Berlin Wall had come down...

I knew nothing about the original so I was quite impressed with this whole thing.

Somebody was telling me that John Kerry could indeed be the real deal. I naturally told him Bush could have beat him to it

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.
