Re: The Movie Project (week 2)
That's my problem with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. It's just "okay." Newman and Redford are hard to dislike, the cliff-jump part is fun, the ending is very good, etc. but it just never seems like it even wants to be a great movie. As Nick said below, The Sting is a million times better. Plus, I absolutely hate the "Raindrops" scene. The Wild Bunch is amazing, but we'll get to that.
I can't think of too many better acting performances than Walter Huston's in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. He practically leaps off the screen.
