    Anybody saw the movie?
    It was an ok movie, not the greastest but it was ok. The problem is, at least 6 times we could see the microphone on the screen. It's a very big production and produced by Speilberg, how come those big mistake where left there? It would have been easy to fix the problem i think.

    Maybe some of these "big productions" are trying to be hip, and look "camp" or something.

    Yeah I usually notice those kinds of things but I didn't notice it this time.

    I remember seeing the hanging boom mic in the movie A Simple Plan in one of the scenes where they are talking in the main character's house. For some reason I felt really dissappointed by that.

    I think I remember seeing one mic at one point in the movie. It's been a while since I've seen it, though. If it was in so many times, perhaps it was meant to be there?

    The movie itself was great. Tom Hanks' accent was something I have to forgive in light of the excellent acting, plot, and the mere presence of Christopher Walken.
     
  6. I thought it was pretty good except the last 15 minutes just seemed really unecesary. I know its based on a true story, so there is no real action packed ending. But man, that ending was boring.


    I never noticed the mic, but i guess if i see it again i'll check it out.



    and as far as movie mishaps go, the john wayne movie Alamo has a plane fly over the set at one point in the movie. How's that for historical accuracy?

    I thought Hanks nailed the accent pretty well. Sounded like he coulda been a Kennedy.

    Yeah when we watched that in 7th grade my Texas History teacher said there were over 700 historical errors in it. Guess it was just meant to be another John Wayne movie and not really a historical account.

    I haven't seen it either. It was one of those on screen teasers they play before the movies. I saw it when I saw the 25th Hour. They said there is a car somewhere in the background. My buddy says it was in teh Shire somewhere. But I'm with Embellisher, I haven't seen it.

    Most movies I rent these days, either my wife or myself always say at the end: "Gee, I'm glad I didn't pay $7.00(or whatever the going rate is) to see that".

    I learned something new today.

    It is normal to see the mic on the tapes in a theater. But the way the projectionist put the tape in the machine it hide the mics.

    So if i saw the mics it's only because the projectionist didn't do his job properly.
