No, even though I liked John Carter quite a bit, the greatest film ever made remains . . .
And I’m not the only one who thinks so:
But . . . well, they can’t all be winners.
Incidentally, I like The Manchurian Candidate even apart from the scene where Angela Lansbury’s character gets shot. That part just makes it even better.
I can’t account for my wholly irrational dislike of Angela Lansbury. By all accounts, she’s a very talented lady, and extraordinarily nice. But there you have it.
I also enjoy the scene in Titanic where Leonardo DiCaprio’s character dies. From my perspective, it’s the movie’s high point.
Does anybody know of a film in which Hugh Grant bites the dust? That would complete a perfect trifecta, in my view.
