    The Assassination of Jesse James...

    By the Coward Robert Ford.

    Good movie. I didn't buy the implications of how the shooting came about, but hey, the movie was based on a novel. I could have happened that way.

    Casey Affleck's performance was frighteningly realistic. At first, I didn't think I was going to be able to watch the movie, because his gestures, the way he carried himself, the way he talked, all reminded me so much of some of the troubled kids I've been trying to teach this week.

    Hey, if a mod could add another "s" to the title and make it "assassination", that would be good.

    Go advanced and you can edit it yourself.

    Thanks. I never start threads.

    I typed it correctly at first, looked at it and decided there were too many "s"es. As soon as I posted, though, I knew it was wrong.

    Assassination is a difficult work to abbreviate.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I wanted to write the title as One Long Word, but I was afraid that would mess up the board.

    I thought it was a great movie. Affleck was perfect for that role, IMHO. I think this movie makes 3:10 to Yuma the 2nd best western of the year.

    I just finished watching it this morning. Overall I liked it. I'd give it 2 1/2 stars I guess. It's worth watching. I just felt it was too long and too slow. The movie kinda dragged. I did think Affleck did give a very good performance though.
