Re: “Film Review of the Week: RoboCop

The 1987 film was brutally awesome. To pull this franchise out of mothballs - RoboCop 3 (1993) was hilariously hideous and RoboCop 2 (1990) was minimally better, but pales to the first flick - with a reboot by updating/tweaking the original classic story is puzzling.

Dallas buyers club should be in this list. If you haven't yet, you must watch it.

Re: “Film Spotlight: Gimme Shelter

Even the most cynical pop culture critic has to give props to Vanessa Hudgens for her ongoing effort to tackle eclectic acting roles....as a solid student in the fine art of being a serious actress.

Re: “Film Spotlight: The Square

.....revolutions seemingly sound fantastic, depending on what one cares to see, minus political blinkers; Richard Elman's classic book on the fall of the Somoza regime in Nicaragua -- "Cocktails at Somoza's" -- chronicles such crumbling hopes as the old boss gives way to the new ones.

Re: “Film Review of the Week: Fateful Findings

It sounds like the budget was so tight that the scenes were cut in one take......with a partially written script.

"Her" brings to the screen every outlook by Kraftwerk on the bold, bright, frightening future frontier as chronicled in "Computer World".

Re: “Spotlight -- Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

"Cry Freedom" seems to be the lost gem of cinema which powerfully captures the brutal, bitter politics of apartheid and the silencing of activist voices by any means necessary....while covering the bloody tracks through Orwellian verbiage.

Re: “Review: The Wolf of Wall Street

There seems to be a trend for movies (which are guaranteed to generate box-office buzz) to clock in around the three-hour mark. Directors may be getting more leverage due to the spiraling cost of tickets -- which is not a bad thing.

Re: “Film Review of the Week: American Hustle

This nation is one big hustle. And - if anything - the sprawling movie shows the characters moving in one direction for a big coup.....but you know they will drop a dime on their "teammates" for a bigger slice of the pie. There is no sharing when the bottom line comes to an end of the game within the game.

Re: “Film Spotlight: The Punk Singer

"This movie became a part of wrapping stuff up," she says. "I felt like I could do anything I wanted because everything was archived. It doesn't belong to me anymore; it belongs to everyone else. Everything that comes on top of all this is just gravy. Hopefully, it's super-delicious gravy that everybody in the universe wants and it's on the top of good mashed potatoes."

A genius with words. #dumbass #prolife #abortionsarenotbirthcontrol
