    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I saw Ender's Game. It's so easy to write a child prodigy main character. All you have to do is write an incredibly stupid cast of supporting adult characters.

    Agreed. But I still think it's bad form and insults the readers' intelligence to a point. I didn't detect it when I read the novels as a kid, but when I read Speaker for the Dead, it became evident that Card could no longer riff off the "super intelligent prodigy" angle when illustrating Ender as an adult. I suppose this also indicates that Card's main focus was never completely on the "prodigy" angle, but more on the "savior" angle and "children are the future" angle.

    I watched 12 Angry Men last weekend. It was excellent. I had heard about it before (obviously?), just never taken the time to seek it out and watch it.

    Being that it was originally a teleplay it reminded me of Dial M for Murder quite a bit. I'm not sure you could get away with that sort of filmmaking nowadays, which is lamentable. Other than a handful of scenes 12 Angry Men takes place within the confines of a single room, just as Dial M for Murder takes place mostly within the Wendice's apartment. It relies on great acting and clever dialogue, something you don't get very often anymore...

    Coincidentally the guy who played 'Mark' in Dial M for Murder, Bob Cummings, played Juror #8 in the original CBS production of Twelve Angry Men. He was replaced by Henry Fonda of course, who also produced the film adaptation. A couple of the actors reprised their roles though; Joseph Sweeney played Juror #9 and George Voskovec played Juror #11 in both the '54 teleplay and '57 movie.

    The cast was great. A bunch of excellent character actors. John Fiedler (better known as the voice of Piglet from the Winnie the Pooh cartoons), Jack Warden, Jack Klugman, Martin Balsam, Ed Begley (Sr.)... It would have been nothing without the cast.

    The Intouchables. Excellent French movie about an unlikely friendship. Good story and great cast. I would highly recommend it.

    I love that movie!!! Robert DeNiro was great as Al Capone. And Kevin Costner played, well, Kevin Costner.
