The worst problem I have with westerns is the accents. If some actor identifies himself as a Texan, then by God, he should sound like it. Of the non-Texans, Robert Duvall does the best job. John Wayne was from California and just used "Texian" phrases. Same with Kevin Costner.

Oh god, please don't mention John Wayne. The Searchers was the only decent movie he ever made.

For my money, rotoscoping in animated films still produces movement which looks 300% more lifelike than anything CGI can produce. They still think that using motion capture suits and stuff, we can't tell the difference between a real person and a CGI character. They're wrong.
I'll bet in less than 20 years, we'll look at CG animation and everybody'll be able to spot it as easily as we can spot stop-motion animation today.

"Young Frankenstein" is underrated.

What about a catagory of "Dissappointing Films" or "Sort of Overrated Films"? I can think of a whole bunch of movies which a lot of people liked but which I think are fairly ordinary or outright mediocre, although not actually bad. For me, these would include "A Fish Called Wanda" or "2001".

Anaconda was fairly dreadful as I recall too.

What bothers me about CGI, motion-capture and rotoscoping, intrepid, is not that it is not totally "lifelike" but that it is too lifelike. If you want something to be lifelike, why don't you film in live action? When you resort to mechanical means, you lose the poetry of good animation.

Of course, it is much easier and cheaper to train people in CGI and motion-capture than to develop great animators which is why it is so attractive to film financiers.

Never seen it but, if it has Spears in in, I raise my hand.

Don't know about Crossroads, but I'm not a Spears fan AT ALL!!!!!!!!!
How many mistakes can a young woman make in the short life she's led so far?
