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.

Re: “Trank Show

Don't tell your significant other that you're going to see the Trank Show. They might think you said the Skank Show, and that's something completely different.
