LIKE my comic!
Yeah, “Maverick” is pretty great. It was written by William Goldman (“The Princess Bride”, “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”, “Marathon Man”, etc) and directed by Richard Donner (“Superman”, “Goonies”, etc), so that’s a great combo. Mel Gibson is pretty darned charming, as is the rest of the cast, including awesome Canadian Graham Greene. I highly recommend it.
TIFF is happenin’ ’round here, but I haven’t gone to see anything. My workplace is one of the major centres, so there are long lines and pretty people all over the place. I was hoping to spot Benedict Cumberbatch wandering around, but I didn’t want to seek him out.
Google Led You Here: “cinema bums : – )” Much obliged for the smiley face, Internet Searcher.
What’s the Joke, Projectionist? Doug worries that “Maverick” might be retroactively sexist/anti-Semitic, but either becomes distracted, or decides that’s not the case.
