Re: “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is Not Your Typical Teen Fantasy Flick

Great review from a film critic who understands the value of a movie from the perspective of the audience rather than the typical cynic who is filled with arrogance and indifference. The main objective of a movie is to entertain rather than meet some elitist literary agenda. Kudos for rising about the snob-filled stench of the sub-standard critic world!

Re: “Review of the Week: The Counselor

I saw it this weekend and this review was spot on. One of the worst movies I've seen in a long time - feel cheated.

Re: “Review of the Week: The Counselor

from the name of this movie, i can only assume it's a documentary about a marriage counselor.

Re: “Film Review of the Week: Wadjda

Is a coming-of-age story supposed to end with a finale where someone's life hangs by a thin thread? And is it possible that you, mr reviewer, found the film, "pretty damn boring" because you are a man watching a film about women?

Re: “Review of the Week: The Counselor

But it HAS to be good! I'm still pretending that Prometheus wasn't a bloated disaster, and Blood Meridian is like my favorite book ever! I don't have to actually see the film to know that if this (or any) critic didn't like it, it's simply because he or she didn't UNDERSTAND it!

As soon as I finish making this Breve (omg people, why don't you losers ever TIP??!) I'm going to look up this critic's other reviews and use them to declare his opinion on The Counselor totally invalid.

Re: “Review of the Week: The Counselor

I wonder what the reviewer would say about a David Lynch film?
Or Terrence Malick?

Youtube the reactions of people coming out of the London screening.
"This is an adult film. A film for grown ups."

The last thing adults want is a film that spells everything out and doesn't
require multiple viewings to understand all the intricacies subtly laid
out by a director.

The lead has no name? And??? That's a complaint?
If you were old enough to understand Western tropes you would understand
this fact was discussed in the 30 minute conference days (weeks?) ago.
It's called the man with no name and it signifies this film is partially a western in disguise.

Re: “Review of the Week: The Counselor

Agreed. "abstraction and philosophy" is what is MISSING from film today.
I'll be first in line.

Re: “Review of the Week: The Counselor

"The central flaw of the film, though, comes (surprisingly) at the hands of Cormac McCarthy, the manly-man novelist (author of No Country for Old Men, among others) who wrote a script so dripping with abstraction and philosophy that it often feels like we're watching half of a film, the half that ought to have been edited out. With a nonstop barrage of cameos, monologues and no prominent storyline, the movie is a narrative disaster"

Ahh, so it was Shakespearean and not dumbed down enough for you. I see. Well, I'll be at the theater the minute it opens then. Thanks for the review.

Re: “Film Spotlight: Evocateur- The Morton Downey Jr. Movie

This guy was just another fucking jaggoff who, along with other assholes like Jerry Springer and other idiot loudmouth TV pundits helped degrade and constrict American discourse, ushering in the festival of ignorance we endure today.

Re: “Review: Elysium (Or, Why Jodie Foster's Atrocious Accent Can't Sink This Ship)

I am French living in the US and I confirm that her accent is French! Not outrageous like Peter Sellers in the Pink Panther! She is spot on... Kudos.
