Castaway was good, but not

posted by Jason Kottke   Dec 27, 2000

Castaway was good, but not great; Hanks plays the same character he’s played in the last 6 movies he’s made. I would have enjoyed the movie more with an actor like Philip Seymour Hoffman in the lead role. Also not great is the official Castaway Web site, which I’m not going to point to because it opens in a full-screen window without giving you an obvious way to close it. Bad, bad.
