Meet Joe Black

From September 2003:


Name: Meet Joe Black
Directed By: Martin Brest
Written By: Ron Osborn, Jeff Reno
Type: Romance, Drama
Year: 1998
Starring: Anthony Hopkins, Brad Pitt, Claire Forlani

The movie started off well. It seemed to me that it would be an interesting movie. William Parish (Hopkins) is a multi-millionaire about to turn 65. Parish has a date with Death (Brad Pitt). Susan Parish (Forlani) starts to flirt with Death.

The movie started off well. Parish’s encounter with Death’s voice and the coffee shop scene with Pitt and Forlani. After that, the movie turned to a crawl. It was so slow I almost died.

Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins are wasted in this movie and Forlani isn’t what some folks make her out to be.

Rating: 2 out of 10
stay away from this one, unless you have a lot of time on your hands…


The Count of Monte Cristo

From October 2003:


Name: The Count of Monte Cristo
Directed By: Kevin Reynolds
Written By: Alexandre Dumas, Jay Wolpert
Type: Adventure, Action, Drama
Year: 2002
Starring: James Caviezel, Guy Pearce

I haven’t read the book of the same name written by Dumas. But I’ll put it on my ever increasing list of books to read. For a person who doesn’t read many books, I like carrying this list around.

Back to the movie. It’s about an innocent man Edmond Dantes(Caviezel) and how he’s tricked and deceived into his imprisonment by people he knew and trusted.

Adventure, action and revenge, this movie is stuffed with all this and more. James Caviezel delivers a wonderful performance and Guy Pearce plays the jealous Fernand Mondego very well.

Rating: 9 out of 10
I truly enjoyed the movie, very very entertaining. it’s a movie made to watch.
