The Manchurian Candidate

this one is now off the list of movies I haven’t seen, it was number 64 on imdb’s top 250

I thought because Frank Sinatra was in the movie a lot of older people over rated it and I didn’t think it was going to be entertaining. I was wrong. It wasn’t like some old campy Elvis Presley movie: i.e. Frank Sinatra didn’t have to sing to get the part and can act.

Parts of it were fairly predictable, but not a totally predictable movie. Suspenseful…yes, some parts were laughable, like how easy Frank Sinatra’s character picked up a woman. Not that Frank had any trouble picking up women, but I don’t think his character in the movie would have had it that easy, the woman came on strong to him the first time they met.
