When I had first learned that Warner Brothers Studio and the producers of the HARRY POTTER franchise planned to divide the series' last novel into two movies, I had harbored strong doubts against this plan. Then I saw "HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, PART I" and my doubts were erased. I thought for sure that they would be able to pull this off. And after watching the last movie in the movie . . .

"A ROOM WITH A VIEW" (1985-86) Review

Ah, Merchant and Ivory! Whenever I hear those particular names, my mind usually generates images of Britons in Edwardian dress, strolling along a London street, across a wide lawn or even along some city boulevard in a country other than Great Britain. In other words, the images from their movie, "A ROOM WITH A VIEW" usually fills my brain. Read more... )

"LES MISERABLES" (2012) Review

There were a few movies released in 2012 that I was very reluctant to see in the theaters. One of those movies turned out to be "LES MISERABLES", the recent adaptation of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg's 1985 stage musical of the same name. And that musical was an adaptation of Victor Hugo's 1862 novel.Read more... )
