Today is MLK day in the USA. Seems a worthy day for the film Mississippi Burning 1988, Gene Hackman, Willem Dafoe, directed by Alan Parker who is British. I found no thread or comments on it. I borrowed it from a library and thought it was excellent. Very engaging. It won an Oscar for Best Cinematography, director of photography Peter Biziou. The British Academy Film Awards gave BAFTA Film Award wins to Editing, Cinematography and Sound. Numerous nominations for acting and directing. Overall 19 wins and 19 nominations. Has anyone seen this civil rights film, if yes, what do you like or dislike? I wanted to buy it and usually go to WalMart or Amazon, and it's only found through third parties on Amazon. It's reasonably priced today but only by unknown dealers like DVD & Media Express and not long ago it was over $80 for a DVD. Why do they let good films go out of print and where do third parties get big name studio copies of them?
Has anybody read this Dean R. Koontz series? I enjoyed the first book quite a bit, but have never followed up on the others (I think there are a total of five now). The casting works for me, especially Anton Yelchin as the title character. He seems to have the prescribed quirkiness of Odd already built in. My only concern... Stephen (I Can't Help but Throw in the Kitchen Sink) Sommers is directing. But, he is directing on a $27 million budget, nearly 1/7th the budget he had for his last film (GI Joe: The Rise of COBRA), perhaps that will rein in his tendencies to over do things. He hasn't had a budget that small since 1994's The Jungle Book.
