Besides, great act with Peanut, as always, he seems electric, and makes a hell of a show out of it. Dunham is one to see, remember, and see again sometime soon.

(mx) wrote: An interesting look at Richard Nixon's complex character. Philip Baker Hall is a pretty good Nixon, but the biggest problem with the movie is that is is still a one-man play. Really, it's just an hour and a half of Nixon rambling (which he was well known to do); Altman uses some subtle cinematography to keep the imagery changing, but it's still just a grumpy old drunkard swearing.

(es) wrote: These kind of films have been around a long time but people always flock to the cinema to see them knowing what to expect, San Andreas was different in parts mainly from the fact that it had a good solid cast that COULD act and it's usually the acting that lets disaster films down, But Dwaynes performances just get better and better and make the film complete, The effects were some of the best I've ever seen, I can't comment on the 3D as I watched the 2D version but I bet it would be great in 3D, There's allot of edge of your seat action that starts from the word go and hardly slows down, It's the perfect summer film that gets us away from the dozens of sequels and blockbuster films that flood cinemas just about every week now, This is just about entertaining the audience and not box office numbers or reviews.
