"When: February 21st First-Time Viewing: No. How: Netflix Instant. What'd I Think?: Intense, well written and taut. Other Notes: I'm pretty much done with the book, and I re-watched this to compare the two, and I think this is better than the book."

Movie Diary 2013 (403 movies items)

"21.7. Coppolan sitä tuotantoa, josta ovat Ilmestyskirjat ja Keskustelut hyvin kaukana. Matt Damonin omatuntoa kolkuttaa valkoisen liberaalin miehen taakka, jonka vuoksi pahan järjestelmän sorsimaa yksinhuoltajaäiskää on puolustettava. Ennalta-arvattava ja laskelmoitu underdog-kuvio on toteutettu kuin olisi Tärkeiden Hollywood-draamojen oppikirjaa päntätty ulkoa. Voiceover murhaa katsojan omat ajatukset alkuunsa, eikä lopputulos tunnu silti sanovan aiheestaan mitään. Mielenkiinto pys"

"I always wanted to know how to make rain. So I watched this movie. Turns out, it a courtroom drama, not a how-to on the subject of instigating precipitation from the skies. I still consider it a good movie, but it probably would've made it higher on this list if it's plot ran more directly along the lines of it's title. Oh well......."

"21.6. Small family from Memphis vs. the evil corporation. Sounds good to me. Unluckily Grisham's source novel is anything but intelligent take on the subject. Very simplistic take on greed and profit. Also the sub-plot about Matt Damon falling in love to the Claire Danes charachter and the issues about domestic violence are dreadful. But I still like this movie. Actors are good, some scenes are really captivating and moving. Sentimental crowdpleaser with good elements in it. I'd check this out"
