The Princess Bride (1987) 3/6
I think this is a great movie for children, for me not so much. But it was decent, I made it to the end.

Inherit the Wind (1960) - 9/10
I missed the first half an hour or so but it didn't bother that much. This is quite possibly the best court room drama I've seen (no, I haven't seen 12 Angry Men). The dialogue is amazing, performances are great and somehow the movie manages to be cinematic although it's basically (like?) a filmed play. 

My 3000th post here, BTW... Time to get a life.

Check the remake if you can. Better than the original, IMVHO.

Huh, I like this film a lot. There's plenty to laugh about. Wallace Shawn is always amazing.

I haven't seen Princess Bride since I was ten or eleven.  All I remember was Andre the Giant (I was a big wrestling fan as a kid).  Speaking of Wallace Shawn, does anyone else like My Dinner with Andre?  I usually don't like artsy fartsy films but I connected with that one.

The Magnificent Seven (1960) - 8.5/10
Both action and character development scenes work very well. I can't really compare this with Seven Samurai since I saw it only once, years ago, on a extremely bad DVD-R recorded from a TV broadcast.

Any movie with Eli as a bandit is automatically great :)

That just makes Eli's scenes great. The film itself isn't anything special.

Glory (1989) - At IMDB some people say this is the best war movie ever. I wonder what the other ones they saw are. This movie's greatest asset is no love story; it also has a good last battle scene (unusual, staged along the american beach: it could have been Italy or Normandy). For the rest is the usual heap of Hollywood clichťs. The Denzel W.'s character could have been a good excuse to enlarge the picture to a reflexion on racism, but that it is exactly what this movie is not. I have little against Broderick, but I would have preferred Michal J. Fox in the part. 6\10

Manhunter:  The first Hannibal Lecter movie.  Silence of the Lambs was pretty good (if overrated) but Hannibal was trash.  Its nice that this one is pre-Silence and thus has less hype, less Lecter.  The Cannibal was never a character I liked very much though Brian Cox is interesting (and better than Hopkins).  The two big problems are that Will Peterson ain't much of an actor (sometimes he's hilariously bad) and the storyline with his wife is boring.  The first hour is hard to get through.  Its gets better when the killer enters the movie.  Tom Noonan gives without a doubt the best performance in the movie.  His serial killer is very creepy (a scene where he tortures a reporter sticks with you) but also very human.  A young Joan Allen is also good, making the most out of a small part.  The final showdown between Peterson and Noonan is rather silly but cool (and a nice use of In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida).  Overall I'd say that Silence is still better but I would still recommend Manhunter (at least for one viewing).  6/10

I sort of agree with your rating and short review. And Tom Noonan was and still is a very gifted actor with both skills and presence for those devious wicked characters that steal the show, though he never really got a chance to be in something big after this.

In general, Manhunter failed where The Silence of the Lambs just a few years later proved to be great: interaction between the two leads, and design/cinematography. That made a huge difference, as the script of TSOTL wasn't exactly something to write home about.
