Yes! I love this movie! I think it is really underrated. Hanks and Halle Berry put in very good performances in the movie. It probably puts some people off though because of the length (~3 Hours) snip
I'm actually no fan of T. Hanks, but his performance in the doctor's role was well above convincing - I couldn't wait for something... unpleasant to happen to him ;-P
H. Berry is either very underused or very selective as she doesn't do many films - or at least, that's my impression.
A movie I really enjoyed was Django Unchained.
Dicaprio, Fox, and OMG Cristoph Waltz. After this movie, I formally got a man crush on Waltz. He put in a FANTASTIC performance and totally manages to sell his character.
I was talking with a friend recently about Django Unchained
and Tarantino. I find the guy utterly obnoxious, but, boy, does he know his craft as a film-maker and story-teller!! The only film of his I didn't like was Death Proof
- that non-stop rambling by the chicks made me wish I could stuff a sock in their mouths. Django Unchained
has some of the best performances to support a very fresh story, you forgot to mention the unrecognisable Don Johnson.
Christoph Waltz is an amazing character actor - I just loved Col. Hans Landa from Inglourious Basterds
, he's that good. So, my crash on him dates back to that film.
If you haven't already, watch and [url=http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1067583/]Water for Elephants
for a couple more brilliant performances.
Recently watched Seeking a Friend for the End of the World
- another film that confirmed my belief that Steve Carell is a very good dramatic actor and should be playing more of these roles.
