What I Watched, What You Watched: Installment #88


This was another busy, busy week of movie watching. I finished watching Scream 3, which I already discussed earlier this week and I also watched The Professional, Beautiful Girls and V for Vendetta, which I discussed in my Natalie Portman feature. Beyond that I saw five films in the theater and one more to finish things up… I’d say ten movies in the span of seven days is pretty good…

Adam’s Rib (1949)
QUICK THOUGHTS: Last week it was State of the Union out of Warner Home Video’s upcoming “Tracy and Hepburn the Definitive Collection” DVD set and this week it was Adam’s Rib and neither are necessarily great, but each has their charms. Adam’s Rib is a legal drama with a share of comedy mixed in as Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn play a married couple that end up against one another in the courtroom after a woman shoots her husband for cheating on her. For the most part it’s a rather annoying film to be entirely honest and it takes things quite far in the end, but the end is easily the best part even if I don’t think it was entirely earned.

Adam’s Rib was directed by George Cukor (The Philadelphia Story) and was nominated for an Oscar for its screenplay.

Now it’s your turn. What did you see? Did any of you go see Hanna? If so, did I oversell it or are you on board with me and loving it? If I did oversell it, were you able to enjoy it anyway? I certainly hope so.
