Hmmm my post didn't go through. Anyway, I said something like Johnny Depp is a creepy Micheal Jacksonish and all the special effects were just that. Effects. They didn't really add to the story. I felt the whole story was a little flat. There was no substance. Whereas the 70's version, Gene Wilder was very dynamic. He had FEELING without being creepy. All the characters were characters not devices to keep the plot going.
Must Love Dogs. Also flat. Although I must admit I like Dinae Lane (I love her in anything) amd John Cusak. The story was weak. I guess those mushy love stories dn't do it for me. Just something to pass the time. Pretty rich white people with problems, WWAAAaaa.....
Broken Flowers was Excellent. Bill Murry carried the tension of the plot very well. I like slow movies too. You can feel along with the characters. I aslo Love Jim Jarmush (sp?).
So some of my favorite movies?
