Re: “The Lady Astonishes

Gone Girl turns to literally unbelievable crap. Save your money, ignore the reviews, and worry -- a lot -- about what has happened to average intelligence.

Re: “Jersey Snore

Wow, terrible review. I really liked the movie, as did my friends. I also read so many reviews from people who really loved the movie - I wouldn't go by one person's opinion! Especially if you like the music and it's a great story, well acted. BTW - one of the best Broadway musicals we've ever seen.

Re: “Overseas Visitors

I liked Godzilla in Jurassic Park III.5 when the plane lands on the Island and both he and the giant purple Barniosaurus immediately attack the people inside and eat them all. It was a disappointingly short movie.

Re: “Amazing

Marvel (Disney) doesn't have the film rights to Spiderman, Sony does. That's why we haven't seen Spidey connected to the Avengers universe. Otherwise, good write up!

Re: “Wolf is a Howl

Additional note for women who may be thinking of viewing this flick: don't. Women are one dimensional objects in this film whose major use and worth is as sex objects. There are numerous scenes in which a naked woman parades in front of a man or men and the man gets instantly turned on and leaps upon said woman and starts to pump away for 20 seconds and then rolls off and lies there panting. The woman also lies there but she has no reason to pant. The only other actions by women are 2 scenes in which the stars current wife slaps him about a bit while screaming hysterically for being the pig that he is. As noted above-this is a boy movie, by and for boys. The reviewer is a boy.

Re: “Wolf is a Howl

There is absolutely nothing "monumental" about The Wolf. It's an overly long (3 hour) flick with about half or more of the time showing people getting fucked up beyond slobber and vomit and endless fuck scenes peppered with numerous male exchanges about the frequency with which they masturbate. BOOORRRING. It is, without question, a boy movie, made by and for boys. Scorsese seems to have used no judgement whatsoever in the cutting room. At least an hour of this tedious piece should have hit the floor. Other than a couple of light and obvious touches of political commentary implied here and there there is little substance to this flick. Don't waste your money.

Re: “Good Will Fracking

Promised Land is a great movie. I would recommend it to anyone concerned about natural resources, rural life in America, and corporate ethics.

Re: “Django Gets Even

You just proved his point. Count the number of times you use the personal pronoun in your comment. It's not all about you.

Re: “Django Gets Even

Pop art. I'm trying to imagine Andy Warhol selling some posterized drink coasters with the faces of friends who died of AIDS, and having some trouble imagining it. But hey, maybe you'd like me -- a heterosexual male -- to make a glib action adventure / revenge fantasy movie with a sort of Kevin Smith tone to it, in which the gay characters kick some Republican ass in 1987. That should "provoke discussion." "Taking yourself too seriously" is, uhm, a little different than taking either slavery or the holocaust just plain seriously. Seriously enough not to let some egotistical goof be the person setting the agenda, you know?

Re: “Django Gets Even

"Only people who take themselves too seriously don’t like Quentin Tarantino movies" EXCUSE ME??! I love a great variety of movies, there are even violent movies I've enjoyed a great deal but I don't like Tarantino's films because they are TOO full of gratuitous violence....violence for violence sake and that's it. I've watched his stuff, I've given him an open-minded chance...but his films simply turn me off. I'm sure at some point I will watch this movie on cable when it comes on...but I won't pay box-office prices to watch it. Honestly, I find your opening sentence to be very narrow-minded.

Re: “Mordor? More Like Bored-or!

The Hobbit.... Who cares? What I want to know is why this town doesn't have Django in theaters... Then people always ask me why I don't want to stay here? It is because you people act like black people don't even exist. I refuse to see the Hobbit until we get Django. F the Hobbit...

Excellent review of Argo. The writing is spot on!
