* I saw "ShadowLands" Saturday night, and was extremely impressed.
* I love a movie that tells a small story in a big way, like this
* one does.  Debra Winger is very good, and Anthony Hopkins is
* nothing short of amazing.  His performance has a wonderful depth
* to it that is all too rare in films these days.  If he's not the
* best film actor working today, then John Hughes doesn't make
* movies about kids.  He could very well walk away with the Best
* Actor Oscar this spring.
For that or Remains of the Day...
speaking of, has anyone seen Philadelphia? How is Emma Thompson in that?
Everybody seems to be working together--she and Denzel share Much Ado
About Nothing, she and Hopkins share RofD, etc.
I doubt they'd give her the Oscar two years running, even though she
was excellent in the two I've seen. Best actress going these days.
Hopkins may get a run for his money from Kevin Costner, strangely enough.
arning: thread starter!
