You know why the details are fuzzy about the movie? You watched it with me, and we both agreed it sucked.


So you reckon I'm supressing a traumatic experience? I don't think I've seen a Spike Lee movie that I've liked since Malcolm X, and I wanted to like 25th Hour, but ol' Spike is so heavy handed that it came out uneven.


It wasn't just that the film was uneven. He had no idea what to include from the novel, or why he would include it. I felt the same way about Mystic River. It was as if the screenwriter said, "I must include an event from every chapter." That's no way to adapt a novel.
P.S. The Aviator is much better than people said it was. It isn't great, but it's good.
