Author Notes


pass submitted by KOH on August 27, 2018, 3:13pm Considering the rich source material and excellent current TV series, this is laughably dated in comparison.

Worthless garbage. submitted by Tassos on April 19, 2019, 1:18pm a famous book has been slaughtered again when they try to make a movie out of it. RIDICULOUS.

I still saw it with lots of fast forwards and moving to the next STUPID scene.

BTW, what is it with all the LUDICROUS blackened Lincoln Town cars from the 70s and 80s, the cheapskates that made the movie had tens of millions to pay Duvall and Dunaway and Richardson but could not commission a few CONCEPT CARS for this worthless movie? PATHETIC.
