    The Thin Man

    ★★★½

    I’m struggling to put it into words, but there’s just something about the tone of The Thin Man that doesn’t quite work for me. I think this is a fun movie; taking the whodunit-detective-idea and delivering it through this rapid banter and enjoyable acting (led by William Powell and Myrna Loy as Mr. and Mrs. Charles).

    Yesterday, I saw Jaws for the umptieth time and it struck me that it was not only a perfect movie, but also a perfect viewing.

    I don't exactly know why, but to watch Steven Spielberg's breakthrough yesterday was such a perfect fit. The pleasant breeze of the summer have just started to crawl in and the last few days have meant…
