I have gotten good feedback on asking who is going to see PAWN SACRIFICE.
I do appreciate that, it means I don’t make these posts for nothing.
But, while some read my posts they reply in private emails. If you could answer the blog post ON the Blog, that would be more efficient for everyone.
I found last night that Nate is going to take me as a BD present next week so naturally I am hoping it plays for more than a week.
I’ve seen all the trailers but found a new one on Vanity Fair about Liev Schreiber, the actor who plays Spassky. His Russian was very good. No pauses, no hesitation, no crummy accents. He was coifed to look a lot like Spassky even though Schrieber is a big man. His presence will help the film,
A few readers said the film may not be playing in their area but they might branch out to another city. The “authenticity” of the staging is exactly as I remember it except for the “suited gentlemen” in the audience. Those with suits sat further back, in the event Fischer might explode!?
Whatever the case, most intend to see it. I just had a house customer a few minutes ago who didn’t even know about it and didn’t indicate he would see it because he’s not into movies.
For me, when I was younger, movies like that spurred me on to do my best and work hard. Movies are my most relaxing form of entertainment.
If any of you go to see it tell me what you think on this forum. And hey, honest reviews please. Zwick, the director, is making an honest attempt. It’s so tiresome to see negative reviews by some on Amazon who have never had a good word to say about anything or anyone. Amazon should just dump those people. I secretly believe many of them never read the book under scrutiny! Or are just overly impressed with what they have to say. In other words, NO NEWS!
