A Separate Peace Review


Weak
Pretty tepid adaptation of what is a pretty tepid book to begin with. This inspiration for Dead Poets Society -- and every other boarding school-set book and film -- is very poorly acted and places much of its emphasis on World War II, which (if memory serves) is less of a focus on the war and more on the interplay between its two leads, one of whom may have caused the other to fall 30 feet from a tree. Too bad in the movie it's obvious the underdog (Parker Stevenson) didn't jostle the branch in the slightest.

Hopscotch Review


Good
Often touted as one of the great cat-and-mouse games in movie history, Hopscotch's antics just don't stand up to some of its more expertly crafted contemporaries. Walter Matthau is unforgettable as an ex-CIA agent who's so bored he decides to write a tell-all memoir about his experiences as a spy. This sits poorly with his former bosses, who immediately plot to have him killed. Naturally, he outsmarts them at every turn, but the depth of "clever" twists never rises above identity changes and leaving tape recorders in hotel rooms he's just left. Overrated, unfortunately.
