For this month’s next review for Genre Grandeur – Boston Films, here’s a review of The Verdict (1982) by Ryan of Ten Stars or Less
Thanks again to Ryan of Ten Stars or Less for choosing this month’s genre.
Next month’s Genre has been chosen by Vern of the Video Vortex. We will be reviewing our favorite Graphic Novels that have been adapted for the screen.
The one caveat is that it has to be based on a book that has been published.
Example The Killing Joke would be acceptable because it’s based on an actual graphic novel. The Dark Knight would not because it’s based on characters and there was no book before the movie.
Here is what appears to be the official/unofficial list of film adaptations of Graphic Novels
Please get me your submissions by the 25th of May by sending them to Vernsworld@movierob.net
Try to think out of the box! Great choice Vern!
Let’s see what Ryan thought of this movie:
The Verdict Review
The Verdict features a story we have seen a hundred times before, the one where our main character is a lawyer who needs a big case win to save his career. The interesting part of the whole story is the subject matter isn’t what we’ve come to see in other movies. Yes medical malpractice is always the topic, but this case is really special and brings a whole new level of drama to the court room. Paul Newman gives a great performance here, which shows off his amazing versatility as one of Hollywood’s greatest actors.
