Movie Quest #61 Husbands and Wives
Knowing the background of the Soon-Yi—Woody Allen—Mia Farrow story makes this a hard movie to watch. This movie shows us Woody and Mia as a couple who starts out “okay” and breaks up by the end of the film. This is a reflection of the real life breakup of the couple, who never made another film together. Also, Judy Davis is amazing, but that’s pretty much a given.
Movie Quest #39 The Dead Pool
A macabre sports pool is placing bets on which celebrity is going to die next and crossing names off a list as each of them meets their demise. A serial killer who preys on famous figures enters the scene, and suddenly the odds are dramatically changed. When rogue cop “Dirty Harry” Callahan (Clint Eastwood) and high-profile TV journalist Samantha Walker (Patricia Clarkson) suddenly find their names on the list, the game hits too close to home.

This movie has a pretty outstanding cast, but is not the strongest entry into the Dirty Harry series. The plot just seems a little TV Movie and silly. If you watch this for any reason, it must be for the RC car vs. actual car chase.
