go see JANE EYRE, HANNA

Saw JANE EYRE a couple of nights ago… Loved it.
I knew NOTHING of the story. Only that it was famous.
You don’t get to be that famous for that long without doing something right. The story is really good and the movie is so well done. I am not going to discuss the movie, because I don’t want to spoil it.
But it’s one of the best films I’ve seen in a long time.

I also really enjoyed HANNA. A shoot ’em up popcorn movie. Not that great, but still a ton of fun.

I saw some other movie but can’t remember what it was.
Let me see if I can wrack my brain and come up with it. Hmm. I can tell you what I liked, even if I can’t remember what movie it was. It had GREAT minor characters. Really compelling and interesting and well written. Something that some writers forget about. It’s so easy to do and fun, actually.

Time passes.
Can’t remember the film that had the good minor characters.
Ah well.

The one I DO remember with great minor characters… THE BRAVE ONE. I think it’s Jodie Foster’s cop partner or somebody doing research… somebody watch that film and give us a report! I recall that guy being a fantastic minor character.
