Most certainly. But my problems lie in the fact that he tells her he's going to do it again. Why, if he ends up getting away anyway? And why, if she is in love with him, does she tries to send him to jail? Was McQueen putting her to a test? Well, to set up another hold up just to see if she loves him (being sure she isn't) is "stretching" the plausibility a bit too much.

I guess he hedged his bet when he set up the last one; if she loved him, she wouldn't rat him out and she'd come join him in Switzerland or wherever he was going. If she didn't love him and turned him in, well, he had fled beforehand so he knew he wouldn't get caught anyway. I think he did it both to see if she loved him, and partly for kicks as well. That's really why he did the first one too!

As for why she turned him in by the second one: probably cuz it was her job, which she was obligated to do. But she was hoping he wouldn't be there.

3:10 to Yuma (2007) - 6/10 - 2nd viewing. Hmm, I remember liking this a bit more. Now I'm roughly in CJ's camp.

Rate the Last Movie You Saw, yes? That's what this thread is for. If I have more to say than a few hastily-typed sentences I'll post them in the appropriate thread.

I posted long reviews in both of the pertinent threads. Stop whining.

Cop Land - 7/10 - Decent cop drama with relatively few surprises. Mostly it's worth watching to see that Stallone can really act. The shootout at the end is pretty cool.

You could even have posted just those short ones you posted here. They reflect how your attitude towards the movie evolve (BTW, in both cases you veer towards my assessment Grin) and that makes them interesting anyway. (But you posted an uncomplete rating of The Gubfighter Angry).

Harry in Your Pocket (1973) - 6/10. James Coburn runs a team of pickpockets that includes Walter Pidgeon, Michael Sarrazin, and Trish Van Devere. They have a nice run that begins in Seattle, then moves to Victoria, BC, and finally ends in Salt Lake City. Then some of them get caught. This film, directed by Bruce Geller, the man who created the Mission Impossible TV series, doesn't worry too much about plot. The Coburn-Van Devere-Sarrazin triangle gets a lot of attention but doesn't really go anywhere. There's also a mentoring angle between Pidgeon and Sarrazin, but that doesn't amount to much either. We get a lot of detail about how a pickpocketing team works, but it's rather a dull occupation for small stakes and Geller decides to treat everything in a flat manner, absent the usual cinematic techniques for building suspense. It's a curious piece, very much of its time, of value now chiefly to see how places like Seattle looked 35 years ago (we get lots of local color: Sea-Tac airport, King Street train station, the lower Market, the Waterfront, the Smith Tower, and such long-gone landmarks as The First Bank building--well, the building is still there--the Olympic Hotel, and what was then the most famous restaurant in the city, the Brasserie Pittsbourg). Perhaps this is a movie that only I and CJ can enjoy.

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

Maybe if you change the title to Rate the Last Movie You Saw That Doesn't Have a Thread Devoted to It.
