It seemed as if they made things even more outrageous for the movie in some cases. Yet, I found Dean's character to be played down. I was surprised that almost all of the female characters were played by big stars. A decent adaptation, but I'm not sure that this book should ever have been a film.

This psychological horror film owes a lot to a segment in the British horror anthology film Dead of Night (1945), but it manages to have an eerie and creepy mood which is very unsettling. It just shows how creepy ventriloquist's dummies can be. Charles "Corky" Withers (Anthony Hopkins) is trying to get into doing professional magic shows, but is struggling badly, however he finally hits the big time when he includes a foul mouthed dummy called Fats into his act, which is a huge success. His agent Ben Greene (Burgess Meredith) is on the verge of getting Corky his own TV show on NBC, but Corky chickens out at the last minute, claiming he's "afraid of success". He hops into a taxi, and drives into the Catskill Mountains, and hides at the home of his old high school crush Peggy Ann Snow (Ann-Margret), and they begin an affair, but Fats seems to have take on a personality of his own, or has he?? It's a very creepy film, and it's a shame Attenborough didn't attempt more films like this, as he was a dab hand at creating a tense mood here, (one reason he made this film was so he could get money to make Gandhi (1982)), but even he did "sell out" with this film, the final result is one of his best films.

Well, on this occasion I was delighted to find this classic British war film for less than the price of a Big Mac. And a bargain it certainly proved to be - this film is a fascinating and accurate portrayal of the sinking of the German pocket battleship, Admiral Graf Spee. Made by the famous Powell/Pressburger team, the film features an ensemble cast including many personal favourites such as Anthony Quayle, Bernard Lee, Patrick Macnee and Christopher Lee. The characters portrayed in the film are more three dimensional and less steriotypical than many war films of the time, and the naval battle scenes are well done. The use of real warships adds to the realism of the film - the Cumberland is the real ship which arrived late at the battle. The only real complaint that i have with the film is that it makes no reference to the fact that Langsdorff, Captain of the Graf Spee committed suicide. Nonetheless this is a well made account of a particular interesting battle. Next time you were thinking of buying a Big Mac, try this instead. ;)

(mx) wrote: This might be the best romantic drama, coming of age story and American teen film I've seen in YEARS. It's quite possibly the best film of 2013. Yes, this unassuming little indie film is absolutely incredible. With no-frills, it's gorgeously shot and set in (a very purposeful) everyday American suburban town and looks wonderful, with long wide shots of a rustic setting and painfully emotive close ups. It's one of those films that looks how it feels; capturing the beauty of every day life.The writing is so natural that I can't even wrap my head around how it was written. It couldn't have been, because the performances here are so natural, so authentic and so powerful, that the actors must have just carried themselves. Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley crackle with deep humanity and mesmerizing chemistry and it's awe inspiring to watch. For such a simple story, watching these two people fall in love before your eyes beats almost any cinematic experience I've seen over the past few years.Woodley might have been snubbed for an Oscar nomination with this performance. She doesn't even seem like she's acting. And Teller, playing the carefree party guy he typically does (and does well), adds a whole level of depth and complexity. The film is almost subversive in how it plays with our expectations and because of that, I feel like it's the definitive American coming of age story of the decade. A must watch.

It has a few terrific scenes but leaves you with many questions.
