I’m not sure if these two go together but in my head they kinda do, so two movies to report on (if second hand):
First, Wheat & Weeds saw Captain America and …liked it? Apparently I should never have listened to the rumours promulgated by the trailer. Which made it look ridiculously idiotically ludicrously bad. So hey, lesson learned.
Second, they’ve remade Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, with Gary Oldman as the main guy (and just about everybody else I know in love in it as well (including Benedict Cumberbatch!)), out this December (at least for the US), and it’s supposed to be really quite good. The only le Carré book-into-movie I’ve seen has been The Spy Who Came In From the Cold which I just remember as being a little depressing. But this one looks pretty snazzy and I think we could all use a spooks flick made by adults again, so I’m looking forward to it.
