: : Thanks for the recommendation. I was going to rent it but I'd probably do so enough that buying it makes more sense. I'm shortly going to put in an order for Squanto, Broken Chain, Follow the River (for my E.S. fix) and Geronimo (for some more Wes Studi). Good idea? Bad idea?
: Hi, Sarah...I think it's great that you are buying the movies that feature your favorite actors and your interests. After all, if their movies don't make money, then who will want to continue to use them in other roles? Personally, I didn't care much for Squanto (and if you haven't seen it, Eric's role is very small). Broken Chain is an interesting tale, and you'll love the fact that there is plenty of him to admire. I haven't been able to rent Follow the River, though I read the book.
: I thought Wes did his usual riveting job in Geronimo. We've talked about this before in the past, and several of us have differing opinions on the movie's merits. I thought it flawed, in some areas, but overall, an interesting story. To me, the weakest thing was Jason Patric, whom I found a wooden-faced detraction in every scene he was in. Others here liked him in varying degrees from "okay" to "great." It's one of those things you'll have to decide for yourself. But if you like Wes and have an interest in the life of Geronimo, I predict you'll find plenty to enjoy in the movie.
: Hope you enjoy them all.
Marcia, Re: Geronimo. I'm with you on Jason Patric. He carried the stoic, low key demeanor too far. But in a few scenes it was touching. How about that Matt Damon? Did a good job, but looked to be in Junior High. Wes Studi was excellent, and quite handsome with a full head of hair. Those eyes are what get me.
I bought Geronimo at BB 2 weeks ago for $3.99. The best part was a trailer for Legends of the Fall( a movie I happen to love anyway). The music used for the preview was the Elk Hunt. It was worth the price just for that. Now I can see both Eric Schweig AND Brad Pitt running to one of my favorite pieces of music. Pretty neat, huh?
