The first two-thirds of this moviewas so slow, I had troube keeping my eyes open. This is in spite
of the excellent visual sets. The use of 3D was not necessary to making this film. If it added appreciabley to the cost, that expense was not worth it.
I am not sure what audience this movie would appeal to. It is too slow for kids (and adults). The last third does move along and is entertaining, but I suspect the kids will long have dismissed this by either falling asleep or pulling out their pocket video games.
Great movie - Frank Langella was terrific. He will give Sean Penn a real run for the Oscar. Both
actors were great in their respective roles. Langella simply had so many more lines in Nixon Frost than Penn had in Milk. Tough decision for the judges.
Wonderful to see so many really great performances this year. It is too bad that some really great flicks will not receive the top awards. Almost like "Forrest Gump" winning Best Picture, a vote I agreed with; it beat out "Shawshank Redemption" which in terms of what movie would you rather watch over and over, Shawshank wins hands down.
