Chas, PE SE

Oversight: You made a big deal of director Stephen Hopkins, and cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond, while only mentioning the writer of the script in passing.

William Goldman. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Princess Bride. THAT William Goldman, who heard the Tsavo story on safari in Africa and almost singlehandedly brought it to the screen.

Favorite line, by Emily (Newsroom) Mortimer: "You're an engineer. You have to go where the rivers are"

Chas, you're right, Goldman is one of the best and his contribution to a movie is not something that should normally be minimized. But it wasn't exactly an oversight on my part here. I just didn't know how to deal with the fact that he pretty much disavowed the movie.
