Hey nice spoiler!
Wow! He's still alive, what is he like 84.
I bet he's wearing 'Depends'.
Promised Land is a great movie. I would recommend it to anyone concerned about natural resources, rural life in America, and corporate ethics.
You just proved his point. Count the number of times you use the personal pronoun in your comment. It's not all about you.
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?
"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.
The caption under the photo says it all.
django release date is xmas, today. it is playing at the minor and other local theaters.
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...
Id love to probe his buttlove then he could doubt to me. GAY RIGHTS!
Excellent review of Argo. The writing is spot on!
Seeing the trailer for "Last Ounce of Courage" really had me puzzled. The thing looked like a made-for-TV movies ... and a really piss poor one at that. In a country where indie movies are dismissed as "not worthy" of a viewer's attention by far too many people, I can't even believe this is being shown anywhere. I'm also starting to question the ownership of Coming Attractions. "2016" and this? Me smells tea bagging.
I haven't seen the movie yet, because I haven't watched the second. (I know! There are reasons.) Part of what kept me from rushing out to see it was Bane. I was never fond of him in the comics, though it sounds like outcome is about the same. In the comics he was a bit one-dimensional. In this movie, however, it sounds like Nolan gave him ... soul. Great review. This, of all that I've heard, makes me want to see it more. I've got to watch the second one first, though.
I have a hard time bringing myself to take in anything Whedon related.
Terrific that you are getting The Way! Charlie & I both enjoyed it!
Ratner is an idiot. I would think that is pretty much uncontested at this point. He is not even close to be one of the "worst" guys in the world, though. That is giving him far too much credit. He's a moron with a big mouth and nothing more.
Nice review, but warrants a slight correction/addition. The 1982 THING was itself a remake of the original 1950's THING, which I believe cast James Arness of tv Gunsmoke fame as the monster. Spooky enough for filmgoers at the time, I suppose, in that 1950's, grainy, black & white, halloween music, low special effects budget kind of way.
I've been lucky enough to have read Charlie's movie reviews from even before he began writing formal ones for the Journal. For a lot of moviegoers here, the experience of seeing a new movie isn't complete until they read what Charlie wrote about it. But even readers like me who don't see a lot of new movies anymore have been reading him for the sheer enjoyment.
It's been a kick being colleagues in print for the past several years. This will be a lesser publication without his work. Charlie was often deliciously sardonic about movies but anyone who knows him knows what a kind and honorable person he is. Thanks for the memories, Charlie--and keep me on your email list!
I will miss your reviews. They were the best!
