    Nasty Banter!

    Interested in a movie with great wit, charm, and alot of nasty banter thrown about by a family that loves to hate each other???
    Go get "the Lion in Winter".
    It's been years since I've seen this wonderful movie, all I could remember was King Henry and his highly dysfunctional family.
    Boy had I forgotten alot!!!
    The charm and wit of this movie is incredible, Katharine Hepburn and Peter O'toole are perfect...their eye just light up as they throw one nasty barb after another.
    The Transfer is good, very few artifacts, colors are undersaturated at times, but overall look good, the image is sharp without edge enhancement, shadow detail is good.(it's a dark movie)
    the sound is nothing special, it's clear and clean, that's all I can say for it.
    This is a classic in my book, worth at least a rental...but if you enjoy a good script about dysfunction...this is it!

    An interesting recommendation, Kenny! Thanks for bringing a lot of "off the beaten path" recommendations to the forum.

    I've got to pick something to watch tonight, after/during packing for my business trip that I leave on tomorrow- out of the country. This will be the first movie I've had time to watch at home in over three weeks- that's pretty disgusting.
    I think it's going to be "Proof of Life"- unless I get into a strange mood and go for something different, more escapist, perhaps!

    Have a great weekend.

    -Jon

          Hi Susan, no doubt Mr Hopkins was already showing what makes him one of the best in his craft.
