  1. (A&F links to Apollo 13 (1995), The Missing (2003), Cinderella Man (2005), Frost/Nixon (2008), The Dilemma (2011) and Rush (2013).) Based on the book, In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex by Nathaniel Philbrick.
  2. We don't seem to have a thread for this film. I hate to start one with this tragic news... "A Beautiful Mind" Mathematician John Nash and His Wife Killed in New Jersey Taxi Crash
  3. I watched it over a couple evenings, but last night I finished watching Apollo 13 with the Jim & Marilyn Lovell commentary track turned on. I had only seen this film once before, back when it was brand new, and I liked it again the second time around. There is something strangely compelling about films like this, or the documentary about the Shackleton expedition that came out a couple years ago, and the way they take you into situations where people are relying on what now seems like terribly outdated and unreliable technology (as I said when I first saw Apollo 13, "I wouldn't drive a CAR
  4. Ron Howard seems to be taking a page out of the Oliver Stone book with his casting of Frank Langella as Nixon. From the trailer, I'm having a difficult time buying him as Nixon. In some bits, Langella has the voice down, but in others it seems awfully forced.
  5. I just thought this would be a cool, different way to start off a thread. In Chicago, we always hear about Vince Vaughn. He's reported as being seen eating at this restaurant, hanging with this particular person, at this Cubs loss. He's a Chicago boy, although I don't know if he actually still lives in the town. But he's here all the time. His latest with Ron Howard, The Dilemma, is now moving into post-production. They wrapped the Chicago portion of their film last week -- although with the Transformers 3 craze, we might have never known they were here. They took out a full page ad in t
  6. I have a pass to see Cinderella Man next week, and although I haven�t much enjoyed a Ron Howard film since my high-school days, his latest one is starting to make some noise with conservative critics. Check out this brief National Review blog, from John Podhoretz: �Howard has become his generation's answer to William Wyler -- a classic cinematic storyteller who can work wonders in any genre. As for Russell Crowe, there's almost no superlative that wouldn't be appropriate. Crowe hasn't made a full-on comedy yet. If it turns out he can do that too, Russell Crowe will then have proved himself u
  7. One of the Ted Baehrisms I like to gripe about the most is his claim that Ron Howard's The Grinch was a basically "Christian" film, for no apparently better reason than the fact that Howard supposedly goes to church. I wonder, then, what Baehr will make of The Missing, which is basically all about the interweaving of Christian and pagan spirituality -- I would even say it is about the erasing of the line between religion and magic (to the extent that there IS a line; among anthropologists, I gather the subject is a matter of some debate), except we see no formal "religion" in this film beyond
