Report from the Metro Beat

So, I saw this movie the other day. I liked it, but didn't love it. It has moments of real grandeur and sweep and emotion, even though it plods a bit in places and ends 30 minutes before the last reel is up. And it's very, some would say slavishly, beholden to the movies that came before it—sometimes that's cool and nostalgic, and sometimes that smacks of a lack of inspiration.

But the thing that was rolling through my mind as I left the theater was, "Margot Kidder really was something special."
