Re: “Rich Hill: down but not out in Missouri

"...we didn’t know each other’s stories..."

"After ... watching each other’s lives, we all grew very fond of each other. We care about each other almost as if we were brothers."

That is a powerful lesson, applicable on a much, much broader basis --- within communities and among cultures, religions and nations. If these teen boys in rural Missouri can figure it out, maybe more of the world could figure it out. Thanks for putting it out there.

Re: “Finding Vivian Maier

I really enjoyed this movie and I thought it made a good attempt to shed some light on Vivian Maier as the person behind the camera. A part of me though kept thinking that John Maloof had a mixed purpose. One to expose Maier as an artist of exceptional talent yet the other to boost the value of her artwork of which he holds the entire body of work. I was left seemingly wondering if I was duped in a calculated scheme by the film maker simply to make money for himself.

Re: “Nymphomaniac Vols. I and II

So... In other words it was a horrible porno?

Re: “The Wolf of Wall Street

Kudos for picking up David Fear's reviews. TONY's loss is a gain for film-lovers everywhere.

Re: “The Punk Singer

The Feminist Press just reprinted The Riot Grrrl Collection, which contains so much of Kathleen Hanna's energy. You should totally read it, it's here:

Re: “Out of the Furnace

Your writing is not clever nor entertaining. Your review displays a stereotypical uneducated Midwestern take on things you are unfamiliar with.

Re: “Enough Said

Great movie. Horrible writing by reviewer.

+1 for the clown.

Re: “Short Term 12

Did watch a different movie? Maybe those who haven't had their hearts touched by this gem of a film should look into figuring out if they even own one.

Re: “The Midway and I-70 drive-ins struggle to survive the digital conversion

All the Hollywood A listers should start a Kickstarter campaign to save the Drive Ins. Zach Braff (millionaire actor) funded his own crappy movie project this way.

Re: “The Midway and I-70 drive-ins struggle to survive the digital conversion

My Drive IN movie memories?? Going to the Fairyland Park Drive In in the early 80s. Two screens---Soft core porn on one, Bruce Lee flicks on the other. Best viewed from atop the long closed Wild Cat rollercoaster with some cheap brew and some good friends!!

Re: “The Midway and I-70 drive-ins struggle to survive the digital conversion

You'd think, that some or All of some of the Hollywood Movie Studio's would Pitch In to help these Drive Ins upgrade !!

Hollywood apparently is too Tight, they'd rather spend their Millions of Dollars on more Ridlicious Movie Flops , that Bomb at the Box office !

The Drive In is another Avenue for people to see the Movies produced, but Apparently Hollywood is out to Lunch on the whole issue !

Also, Why don't WE hear & See any Actors or Actresses taking up for the cause as well, I mean it is "US" who PAY to go see their Movies, and make them Famous and make them money to become filthy stinkin Rich, so they can BUY their Mansions and Exotic cars and 500.00 shoes and 1000.00 purses and fancy Exotic Vacations, that most of us will never get to take, but only dream about in our Fantasies !!!

So, where are all these Actors - Actresses, Movie Studio Directors & Producers ???

Evidently they don't give a Flyin Shitttt, rather their movies get seen or Not, is what it appears, which Translates to a major loss in Revenue for the Studio's.

I Think everyone should just BOYCOTT every Hollywood Movie, forever, Quit going to the Movies , since Evidently HOLLYWOOD and the Movie Studio's don't give a damn , than why should we ???

IF anybody has the Money to help these Drive Ins out, to help them show the Hollywood Movies , its the Hollywood Movie Studio's !

They got multi- Millions to Blow on Advertising campaigns and movie promotions and Multi-Millions to Blow on Lousy poorly Talented Actors & Actresses their feeding us now days, which now seem numerious and getting worse every year.

But Hollywood and their Movie Studio Executives can't help out the Drive Ins that Show their Movies ????

Something very Wrong with this "PICTURE" !!!

Hollywood - YOU SUCK !!!

Re: “The Spectacular Now

I consider "(500) Days of Summer" to be the most emotionally honest, perceptive, achingly touching, funny, and entertaining romcom I've seen since "When Harry Met Sally" and "Manhattan!" What impressed me most was how sympathetic and relatable Gordon-Levitt's Tom was, AND how understandable Deschanel's Summer was. I've been in both their characters' situations in real life, the massively heartbroken and the unintentionally disingenuous dumper, and the cast and crew of "(500) Days of Summer" nailed it. It's been four years since the film, and there's still spirited debate between Tom sympathizers, Summer sympathizers, and Tom-and-Summer sympathizers on discussion boards. That bodes well for its potential to stand the test of time and become a pop culture classic if it isn't already.

I don't know anything about the novel "The Spectacular Now," nor actress Shailene Woodley, and sadly wasn't impressed with director Ponsoldt's "Smashed" (slow narrative, unsympathetic characters), but seeing that Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber are behind this screenplay was enough to get me VERY interested in this film. It's too bad to hear you found the writing weak. I'll be seeing "The Spectacular Now" to see what the director and writers have done this time, and to check out the lead performances.

Re: “The Way, Way Back

Pleasant, pleasing, but almost immediately forgettable (the film, not the review). Is that summer in a nutshell?

Re: “2 Days in NY

I may be mistaken, but I believe Alexia may have been an exchange student at my high school (Sumner Academy, Kansas City, KS) 1990-91. Either that or it is a very common name. Nevertheless, I would love to track down the original movie before diving into the movie which is now set to record on my DVR.

Re: “Dirty Wars journalist Jeremy Scahill takes aim at U.S. secrecy

The US government is only continuing the longstanding practice of using force anywhere in the world that it perceives a threat to US interests. Sometimes these interests involve banana plantations; sometimes petroleum facilities and transport; sometimes the interest is the primacy of US influence and power in a region.

Americans are bigoted. We declaim that the rights enumerated in our Constitution and Bill of Rights are granted not by man but by god. Are we the only people on earth that god has given these rights? Unlawful acts against US citizens by our government are just fine when directed against someone in another country.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." Governments have no memory and only deal with the present and the near future. Governments are inclined to use all tools at hand to achieve their nation's goals. Often they decide the best way to deal with a perceived threat is to just make it go away. Unfortunately, the way we make threats go away often produces more threats.

And so it goes.
