From September 2003:
Name: Meet Joe Black
Directed By: Martin Brest
Written By: Ron Osborn, Jeff Reno
Type: Romance, Drama
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…
