  1. Congrats to the first day Recap!Wait…Tom Hanks miscast? I didn’t think so. Siiiigh!! I guess I’d better get started reading about these films!

    Good topic, Debbie!!

  2. I think Hanks was perfectly cast actually in Road To Perdition. It tops the Godfather for me. And although I love people talking about Sapthamashri Thaskara (amazing movie), the article kind of gave away the whole film although very well written. Amazing idea Debbie !
