Welcome back to The Lurking Voice Podcast, where we soar the skies in the company of awesomeness, and even if today that awesomeness is somehow marred by the fact that I am sick, today’s movie choice is AMAZING.
Seriously, I dare anyone to find something wrong with 1945’s The Big Sleep, the adaptation of Raymond Chandler’s novel starring the amazing Humphrey Bogart and the sensational Lauren Bacall. And a slew of other equally talented actors.
Wow, just wow. I am so glad I picked this movie up. This is the very definition of awesome, a movie that pulls you in (and makes you forget about your phone for a few minutes)
This is also what an adaptation should be: in that it carries the original voice of Chandler’s story and brings the character to life in a way that is most memorable.
I also cough a lot (I’m sick remember?) and rant way too much about the release of the new Star Wars movie and how everyone is reviewing it even if I haven’t seen it yet.
My pain is real, people.
