Re: “'First Man' Offers a Unique Perspective on the Inaugural Lunar Landing

I love fantasy adventures. Get ready for the soon to be released sequel where we pretend to land on Mars.

Re: “Gaga, Cooper Wow in Remake of Classic Music Industry Love Story

This 4th remake the worst of the 4.
Venom killed it at the box office nearly doubling the opening weekend take at $80 million
compared to this $42.6 . No question which is the better film.

Re: “'The King' is a Love Letter to America and to Elvis

Unfortunately, director Jarecky forgot to take into account two or three very important variables when he searched for the elusive metaphor between Elvis and America. One is the title, which Presley abhorred. Another is that, as a subject of such a metaphor, the right person would have been Marlon Brando, who PURPOSEDLY and POMPOUSLY craved, his entire life, to leave a mark on society, but ended leaving half of that which Presley left as well as passing away three times as bad as Presley. In his case, not even his family amongst all the people he interacted with, had any thing good to say about him, as a person. Finally, the Director would have profited from having read this quote from Professor Richard Middleton, in his book "Popular Music, Volume I: Folk or Popular? And I quote "Presley never understood the artistic claims that were made for him, probably thought very little of the nature of his appeal, or his music; Presley viewed music as for the body, not the mind, so he recorded and performed accordingly; and, if some of his music sounds superficial, it was thanks to his undoubted vocal talent and extraordinary charisma that, at least, it was all gloriously superficial and celebratory; he knew better than to take it seriously and, in doing so, he became the consummate music figure, one that defined its spirit by delighting in its very limitations. Unquote. The key sentence being " defined its spirit by delighting in its very limitations." which os the total opposite to the American dream of exercising its power. to the limit.

Re: “'The First Purge' is Quintessential Action Horror for the Trump Era

How much did this movie studio pay SCENE to write this promo ad/article? I see you've kept it on the latest page for an extended amount of time though there has been little interest in this article.

Re: “Feel-Good 'Adventures in Public School' Gets Adolescence Right

BJ you might be the most liberal indoctrinated idiot on the scene staff.

Though we live in a time of disinformation, it's easy not to assist in spreading it. You should really look at those people you praise and promote. It's hard to believe anyone would follow evil leaders without hesitation but we see you.

Re: “Jennifer Lawrence Strips Down for Pulpy Spy Flick 'Red Sparrow'

Jennifer Lawrence's theatrical "accent" is worse than the parody from WWE's heel valet/wrestler Lana (Catherine Joy Perry). And Perry actually danced with the Latvian National Ballet as a teen.

Gotta say - really dig your thesaurus. It's amazing how little you can say with your best words.

Re: “Jennifer Lawrence Strips Down for Pulpy Spy Flick 'Red Sparrow'

I can't wait for her to fix democracy with her elementary school education, connections to sex offenders, and constant flow of cell phone porn leaks.

Her entitlement is nauseating.

Anyone successful in entertainment is part of the pedophilia organization called the illuminati. They sacrifice babies and assault children. Then they make movies and then we review them like they are normal people.

Re: “Known Sexual Assaulter Woody Allen Has Made Yet Another Movie, and It's Not Great

So we are not supposed to judge people guilty based on one allegation against them? Despite what you write, the allegations against Mr. Allen are definitely suspect.

Before assuming guilt, maybe you should read the report from the doctors at the Yale-New Haven hospital who examined Dylan Farrow for six months and concluded she had not been abused; or read interviews with her brother Moses, who states that their mother poisoned them against their father and that he never abused Dylan. Yes, I know, you can counter that with people close to them who DO believe Dylan's story. The point being, if people this close to the case can't agree on what actually happened, there's no way in the world for you to know. As a supposed journalist, it's bad form to pretend to know what you cannot know.

The only thing any of us know for certain is that Dylan is a victim; but whether she is a victim of abuse by her father, or the victim of mental abuse by a mother who planted this story in her head, none of us can ever know. Pretending you have the answers doesn't help anyone. And, if you always assume guilt in cases like this, you'll end up condemning guilty people along with the innocent. Maybe you can live with that. Personally, I would not be able to.

Re: “Known Sexual Assaulter Woody Allen Has Made Yet Another Movie, and It's Not Great

My wife saw the ad for this mess on TV and said "WTF is this movie ABOUT?"
Woody Allen just turned 82. Like Garrison Keillor, he has passed his sell-by date.

Re: “Frances McDormand Shines As an Angry Mother in 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri'

Dark humor? The film has an R rating for extreme violence. Torture with dentists drills. Brutal beatings. Graphic scenes of suicide. People thrown out of windows. Dialogue about "the (n-word)-torturing business."
How the hell can you call any of that humorous, Jeffy?

And no, I have not seen the film...nor do I plan to. The commercials were more than enough.
Do you really need to visit hell to know what goes on there?
