If you have even an inkling that you might want to see “Conviction” with Hilary Swank, Sam Rockwell, and Juliette Lewis, do NOT watch any TV shows discussing the movie or read reviews. The LESS you know about it, the better. There are certain plot surprises and subtleties that have been revealed as the movie is publicized, and it’s a shame! All you need to know is that the story is true and fascinating and the actors are well chosen. We were lucky to see the movie before we knew anything about it and it was captivating and surprising.

    I would care nothing for this movie except for the fact that Juliette Lewis and Minnie Driver are in it. Those two can do no wrong, which is good for this film considering it sounds like a dog shooting (a movie that is emotionally manipulative, designed to produce plenty of tears and a sense that love and justice triumph). Yuck!

    This seems like a commercial endorsement for the film. No thanks! Wait for the rental.

    Not gonna see it. Dislike Juliette Lewis, Sam Rockwell, and especially Hilary Swank.

    Janet, I love how you praise movies you like. It’s your site & you can do as you please. Keep up the positivity & ignore those haters!

    Many many dentists will go see this, because…..they have never seen a set of choppers like Hilary Swank’s and they are trying to see if her mouth has about 6 more teeth than nature intended.

    Of course its an endorsement….Janet C’s steady income source is from flackers. This seems another film for those with not much in the way of brains.

    This is not a movie I would see, no one in the cast appeals to me.
    I respect Hillary Swank’s talent but I haven’t seen any more of her movies after Boys Don’t Cry.

    I still can’t get over how well Juliette Lewis looks. This probably the first time she doesn’t look dirty and nasty.

    Juliette Lewis must have paid extra $$$ for Scientology to call upon the great powers in the planets to rejuvenate her, only temporarily tho, until the next payment becomes due.

    When will the American film industry stop churning out Feel Good movies? I mean, even the so called independent film sector is incapable of producing more than a few movies without a gooey happy ending. Make some art that reflects life for God’s sake. Maybe then Americans will not have their heads in the clouds, and things like the mortage and savings and loans scandals won’t happen so frequently.

    Maybe because its the gooey people who go to the movies,,,but I happen to agree with what you say. Jen Annisten and J Lo have made movies for the lowest of iq’s.

    i would settle for the TRUE story rather than the freaking so called feel good movie:

    the guy fell down, hit his head, and DIED after SIX Months of freedom.

    and also reality……john goodman b4 he lost weight (with an unglier face) would have been more suited to what the real dude looked like the real guy
    NOT sam rockwell……then again THAT’S Hollywood for ya…. god forbid there’s any reality in any of it….

    also can anyone please put gloria allred to sleep. now she is harassing swank because she did NOT consult the victims family before she made the movie. GLORIA!!! BUTT OUT and DROP DEAD.

    Great. Another killer released on a technicality and stupid Hollywood making a film about it. This is the worst kind of betrayal possible. No wonder the victim’s family is furious.

    Who has the larger mouth…Hilliary S or Julia R?

  15. By SebastianCanada

    Sheesh Strom, that is a difficult one. Both could bite a pumpkin in half.

  16. By Indy

    Strom and Seb: Their mouths are beyond hideous. And how Julia R. ever got the title “Pretty Woman” is beyone belief. I’ve seen pics of her with that wide mouth and ski jump nose to wonder who’s in charge of the mental hospital.

    Wasn’t Julia in the People’s 50 most beautiful list? Wasn’t she #1?

    Agree Indy, I have never thought of Julia Roberts as even semi-fair. She’s one and I mean a half step about Sarah Jessica Parker.

    Lenny, few know that the two often meet for lunch. They graze in an open field and then have a nice long trot.

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
