    The Fugitive


    Wanted to rewatch this after this article. Two big things that make this movie so engaging:

    1. Richard Kimble’s profession. As a doctor, he knows how to give himself a tetanus shot, tip off the EMT’s on the prison guard’s injuries, etc. Audiences like characters who are good at their jobs.

    …Which applies to the next thing:

    2. Sam Gerard — the supposed antagonist — is so. damn. likeable. And equally good at his job. 

    Equally likeable protagonist and antagonist. Both good at their jobs.

    The most refreshingly confident movie I’ve seen this year.

    This and SOLO have confirmed two things for me:
    1. We’re in the age of mainstream fanfic, and
    2. I don’t love that. 

    Watching this movie, I kept thinking about how Spielberg once wanted to direct a Bond film, but Cubby Broccoli wouldn’t let him, so instead he and George Lucas made their own version of James Bond called Indiana Jones. 

    I hope more directors will start making their own versions of their favorite franchises soon.




    There has never been a more perfect film made. Full disclosure Ryan Connolly and I are in an eternal romantic relationship.
