Films Reviewed: Seabiscuit and Johnny English
Commentary: Movies about Horses
Featurette: Pirates of the Caribbean
Matt: "A slice of Americana with wonderful performances, terrific photography and exciting horse racing sequences. It's also forty minutes too long. Gary Ross loves his characters too much to cut anything out of this film. Still, it is worth seeing. Three stars."
Aron: "I loved this film! Everything about it works, and I wish it went on longer. This film brought a tear to my eye. Four stars!"
Average rating: three and a half stars
Regarding Johnny English:
Aron: "This film is hilarious! Universal must be in the tear making business, because I was laughing that hard! Four stars!"
Matt: "Rowan Atkinson is funny. This movie is not. I would have liked to seen this character in another profession, as the spy genre has been done to death. Two stars."
Average rating: Three stars
