With the new awful looking De Niro/ Pacino flick about to be released. Critics are finally starting to write pieces about their wasted talent. Just today The NY Sun’s James Snyder wrote Pacino & De Niro Circle Back To Each Other
And the great David Thomson wrote a good piece You want ham with that? in The Guardian.
Of course I’ve been making fun of those two over-emoters since we started this blog
I pointed out the limits in the roles Pacino and De Niro do in Cop Or Criminal
and with Coppola Now! I wondered... “The movies no longer feel like events and De Niro no longer seems to give a shit who he works with. Why did he do Hide and Seek? Was he dying to work with the director of Swimfan?”
A recent festival in NY had all the NY writers reexamine the underrated career of crazy Charlton Heston.
We wrote and posted a bunch Chuck stuff with Your Name's Mud
Two movies that were only on VHS I wrote about a while ago, have recently been released on DVD and “rediscovered” (by people without VCRs)
And watch come December when Frost/Nixon gets released and the awards hoopla starts, everyone will be falling all over themselves to reexamine Frank Langella’s career. Just remember, we all ready did that. Frank Langella Starting Out The Evening
As The Chuck told Dr Zaius "We Did It First! And we did it better!"
Shit let me go check my DVD see if I quoted that right.
