Where do you get your ridiculously bitchin' screenshots? Do you make them yourself?

I do make them myself. It's a painstaking process...

I haven't seen this version of Great Expectations. I'm totally going to have to do that now! This looks amazing!

A GORGEOUS film. That long take of Hawke running in the rain still sits in my memory banks. Lubezeki was the dop, if I'm not mistaken...

I'm so glad to find out I'm not the only one who likes this movie! I was worried there would be outcries of WTF! Actionman, I love that shot in the rain too, one of my all time favs. Nice blog btw! Now a follower

I quite liked this movie. And the source material is my favorite book of all time, so I don't the film's adaptive duties lightly. But it captured something of the novel's romantic spirit (moreso, I dare say, than the Lean adaptation, a great movie but one which got Estella all wrong). I think Cuaron - and whoever wrote the screenplay - bungled the ending, which compressed the story's third act into one scene, but it was definitely worth seeing, and seeing again.

In a few months I'm hoping to do an "adaptation" series on Great Expectations, looking at the book and the various way films have interpreted it (before that, I'm hoping to do such a series on Wind in the Willows).
