Star Trek Into Darkness
Read the book
| Original Score: 2/5
| Original Score: 4/5
Cooper and Hays bring Borzage's liking for towering, vulnerable men and tiny, tough women to its visual apotheosis (her head barely reaches his armpit when they walk).
| Original Score: 4/4
| Original Score: 5/5
Noted by many as the best film version of a Hemingway novel.
| Original Score: B
It's not as good as the book, but it succeeds in its own right, which is really all I ask of adaptations.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
The first Hemingway novel made into a Hollywood film is also one of the better ones due to Gary Cooper's star turn and Borzage's stylized helming, even if a happy ending was imposed against the author's wishes and protests.
