Re: “This Is 40: Judd Apatow's midlife boner

Wow. I saw the movie tonight. It was genuinely funny in some places. The actors were great. The Melissa McCarthy scene was very funny. Make sure you stay for the credits, because they show long outtake of the crucial McCarthy scene that is hilarious and makes if worth sitting through the movie.

My reaction was funny in parts with great actors (really all of them) doing fine jobs, but an "uneven" and "disconnected" movie. I think this review (while probably too harsh) decribes part of what I felt. The husband and wife were great actors, but there was not really an explanation or way to understand their shifts during the movie. I also was annoyed by how two modest and unsuccessful businesses supported this great lifestyle, but I may be too much of a realist. The movie dragged early, but got better over time. The guy from How I Met Your Mother was very good in a small (and disconnected) role.

Brilliantly eviscerated, and well-deserved.

Re: “The Hobbit

As if 3 movies that were 3 hours of walking through a forest weren't enough they now need 3 more movies 3 hours long of walking through a forest.

No wonder I never go to movies anymore.

Re: “Red Dawn

Sorry...just couldn't get past "Josh" being cast in a lead roll. Really???? There was no one else available? The rest of the movie was one let down after the other. Yes I also cut my teeth on the original Red Dawn and am a huge fan. However, my kids have also seen the original, and all agreed....don't go if you are expecting anything even half as good.

Re: “Red Dawn

At least a Soviet invasion was plausible. This is just feeding off the fear of The Other.

Re: “Red Dawn

Does anyone else see the irony in Chris Hemsworth's character playing an Iraq veteran? Foreign invaders have taken over our land and we must fight back? Why does that sound familiar?

Re: “Flight

The bits that stick with me are how the devout Christian co-pilot did not spout the expected "I will walk again, I will fly again" hopefulness despite his faith, and, how everyone from the FAA to the airline owner worked to be sure that the alcoholic had an out. He didn't have to admit that he was a drunk, he could have kept his mouth shut and kept the status quo. That was what I got out of this script - the idea that the establishment had a stake in keeping the wasted lifestyle of their employees quiet.

Re: “To Rome With Love

The Denby review the author denigrates is a better take on the film, Allen, and Italia.

This clown is clearly more interested in throwing a pity parade for his embattled ego than honestly writing about the subject.

I would suggest Scott Wilson retire, but who would really care?

Re: “Midnight in Paris

I just saw the movie and thought it was really good! I think that all of us romanticize the ideas of living in a different time period because it somehow seems like it would have been a better one for you, Owen Wilson's character gets a chance to find this out in "Midnight in Paris"!

Re: “Jane Eyre

Hi Lydia, it opens Friday at the Plaza Cinemark and the Rio in Old Overland Park. It's really wonderful, still lingering in my mind a week later. Hope you enjoy it!
