Stained Glass Cinema #6

After the difficulty of Mad City, I took it really easy on you and indeed gave you a Cage poster. The team of Daniel & Jason took their second straight (and the lead) getting Captain Corelli's Mandolin, surely everyone's favorite Nic Coppola flick.

Back to a challenging one...I hope.

P.S. - I almost forgot. With all the activity this week, there was no time for reviews (Elegy and Tell No One on the way) or for TGITDNMAR. Here's a brief version:

The Women
Still haven't seen as much as a 30-second commercial for this. I guess I don't watch enough Lifetime or something.
Fletch's Chance of Viewing (in the theater): 0%, or equal to the chance that Meg Ryan and Annette Bening have had no plastic surgery.

Burn After Reading
Sure, everyone rants about the Clooneys and Pitts and Malkatrazzes, but please don't forget that Richard Jenkins, J.K. Simmons and Sledge effing Hammer himself are in this. That's right - let's give it up for Mr. David Rasche.
Fletch's Chance of Viewing: 100%. Period.

Righteous Kill
My prediction: Pacino's guilty. Of being in yet another crappy movie. Oh, and I think he's the killer, judging by the trailers. But I am pretty bad at guessing these things. Plots, that is - I'm pretty confident the film will be a letdown.
Fletch's Chance of Viewing: 33%, or equal to how much shorter Pacino is than the general population. Yep, I went there.

The Family That Preys
I'm gonna keep ignoring Tyler Perry until he gets so pissed off he knocks down my door, straps me down and forces my eyelids open Clockwork-style to make me watch his sanctimonious crap. Though kudos and all that jazz must be given to a "true maverick" that "bucked the Hollywood system" to "get his way" and "earn money." I'm "really proud of you, Tyler."
Fletch's Chance of Viewing: 0%. Seriously, Tyler. Stay away from me. I'm just not interested, okay?

10 people have chosen wisely: on "Stained Glass Cinema #6"

Hey Fletch,
I'm trying to send you my pro on Face/Off, but I can't get at your email address because of web blockers at work. Could you email it to losingxinterest@hotmail.com so I can get you this before 4:00? Unless you don't care if I get it to you at 4:30. But I'm late already!! Sorry!

Hey Fletch,
I sent Whit your e-mail address. She should get it pretty soon.

Also, is that a Daylight poster?

Fletch said...

FYI - no one has gotten this yet.

Jason said...

Yeah, Dan and I are stumped on this one. Good Work!

The answer is posted with the next entry...which is up.
