    While I disagree intensely with the grade you’ve given Dune, I really enjoyed this summary and found it helpful for thinking about what I want to do with my scarce movie time. Please keep on doing it!Report

  2. I’d give The Many Saints of Newark a C+. It wasn’t oppressive to watch, but nothing about it ever grabbed me.

    The best thing in it was Ray Liotta’s dual roles as two brothers, especially the intelligence and dignity of the imprisoned one.Report

  3. Kiss of Death got remade in 1995 with David Caruso overacting as a tortured soul and Nicolas Cage fooling around as a dump, hyper-violent gangster. It’s kind of fun in its terribleness.

    Heh, I still remembered this dialog (copied from IMDB):

    Cage: I have an acronym for myself. Know what it is? B.A.D. B.A.D… Balls, Attitude, Direction. You should give yourself an acronym… ’cause it helps you visualize your goals.

    Caruso: How about F.A.B.? F[ished] At Birth.

    Cage: No good. Too negative.Report
