Two more movies

Ultra Super Movie Weekend:

Last night, after Little MIss Sunshine, we also watched Three Days of the Condor, which I’d seen many times when I was a kid (it’s one of those movies Dad would mark in the TV Guide and we’d all watch together) but Dan never had seen it. He loved it, and I really enjoyed seeing it again in COLOR and wide-screen :) Great movie, let’s give it 4 stars:
My rating: 4.0 stars ****

Today, Saturday, we watched Stranger Than Fiction, which was also very good — funny, tender, touching, thought-provoking — with an excellent cast including Will Farrell, Emma Thompson, and Dustin Hoffman. This one gets 4 stars as well!
My rating: 4.0 stars ****

How do I decide how many stars? Well… I base it on how much I enjoyed watching a movie overall, how many good things I noticed (beautiful filming, believable dialogue, good writing/directing, a non-obvious plot), how many things irritated me while watching (clunky dialogue, poor acting, implausibility, predictability, etc.) and how likely I am to want to watch it again someday.
