Following the massive critic failure generated by the ‘Psycho’ remake (which I didn’t think was so bad but I was definitely in the minority), Gus Van Sant came back  to something similar to ‘Good Will Hunting’ which was something much safer but also much more boring in my opinion. In fact, I have always been amazed by the fact that no one has ever really pointed out how almost identical... read more

Description: Jamal Wallace (Robert Brown) is an inner-city kid from the Bronx who has an aptness at basketball and a genius at writing. While always a C student, Jamal comes to the attention of a prestigious New York prep school when he scores highly on his standardized tests.

" Believe it or not, it's because of this movie that I began posting up these lists in the first place. There's a scene where Forrester tells his protege to just start writing, without worry of the idea, theme or structure. All that technical stuff would come later, the important thing was to just start writing. So, as someone who has hardly ever written anything (which can be painfully obvious to anyone reading any of my posts), I decided to put that particular proccess of writing into action, s"

" Cast : Sean Connery, Anna Paquin, Busta Rhymes, Michael Pitt What was it about? A young writing prodigy finds a mentor in a reclusive author. My two cents: Following the massive critic failure generated by the ‘Psycho’ remake, Gus Van Sant came back to something similar to ‘Good Will Hunting’ which was something much safer but also much more boring in my opinion. In fact, I have always been amazed by the fact that no one has ever really pointed out how almost identical it was to "

“Following the massive critic failure generated by the ‘Psycho’ remake (which I didn’t think was so bad but I was definitely in the minority), Gus Van Sant came back  to something similar to ‘Good Will Hunting’ which was something much safer but also much more boring in my opinion. In fact, I have always been amazed by the fact that no one has ever really pointed out how almost identical it was to ‘Good Will Hunting’ and, as a result, I never really cared for this movie. The fact that I always thought that  ‘Good Will Hunting’ was seriously overrated didn’t help either, I guess. Still, I have to admit it, in this genre, it was a decent watch and Sean Connery and Rob Brown had together a nice chemistry.
