Re: “The Green Hornet

Hey, I've seen Iron Man 2. How much worse can a movie get? zzzzzzzzzzzzzz lol I did, however see the Sci-Fi Green Hornet marathon the other day. (Well, a few hours of it, anyway.) I'm hooked on the new version via the previews :)

Update: Since I keep hearing from "movie reviewers" of how lame it is that this movie doesn't involve the Green Hornet using superpowers...THE GREEN HORNET NEVER HAD SUPERPOWERS. Why reviewers are being used who have no clue what a movie is about, is beyond me ;)

Re: “All Good Things

a great book on the Durst case is called A Deadly Secret by Matt Birkbeck and it should have been called "Jeanine Pirro's Deadly Secret" given the way the book beautifully trashes her...

Re: “For Colored Girls

I really like most of Ms. Anderson's critiques of film but I was very dissapointed with her assessment of the film "for Colored Girls". This is a film that speaks for the challenges of most of the black woman in our country. Being a black man of 49 years of age, and being raised in a predominately black female home, I can relate to each characters, male and female. It always amazingly discouraging to me that that flim critics can not see films from the perspective of there intended targeted audience. If you have never have been in the position of those women, and refuse to do a little research to become a little educated; you are not in a position to conduct an effective critique. The rape sceen was neccessary and effective because it was graphic and displayed the mindset of the rapist as well as the raped. It was violent and agressive as it should be. Film are designed to educate, entertain and enlightened which was Perry's intention. Try to step into to the culture of the film. This film happens to be indicative of the slice of the lives of many black women. Wise up.

Re: “For Colored Girls

I applaud this work of poetry-drama and big screen production as FABULOUS, BEAUTIFUL and BOLD as it lifts sisterhood upward in a season when sisters need to know (we must touch in love). It is the laying on of hands that allows our wounds to heal. It is the unity of hearts and souls that make whole our communities. It is the laying on of hands in Jesus' that keep alive our hope for the treasure to be found over the rainbow. It is thetreasure that is often hidden in the unbloomed flower of womanhood because of the places were the sun doesn't shine that finally got some light. The exposure of the darkside of womanhood is what made this work so triumphant. It is the release each character has at the end of a journey inward to her inner most part. Self-taking responsibility for self and celebrating on the roof-top. Thank God for Tyler Perry and his DRAMATIC flair.

Re: “Freakonomics

Dan:

I was stunned to read a Pitch review of Freakonomics and see the you conspicuously neglected to mention that it was produced by Kansas City locals: Producer Chad Troutwine and Co-Producer Rafi Chaudry!

Freakonomics is one of only a tiny handful of local films, and you completely failed to mention it. Can you correct the omission?

Re: “The Tillman Story

In his “The Fog of War” interview with Jason Guerrasio, Amir Bar-Lev, the director of “The Tillman Story,” said: “… there’s been no culpability on the second half of this tragedy, which is the higher ups trying to cover it up. … to borrow a football metaphor, they [the Tillman family] ran the ball 99 yards over four years time, they handed it off at the one-yard line to Congress and they fumbled it...."

Shortly after Sundance, Bar-Lev emailed me that “he was pretty hard on the Democratic Congress in his film.” True, his film does portray Congressman Waxman’s Oversight Committee as ineptly failing to get answers from the top military leadership during their hearing.

However, Bar-Lev’s film missed the ”untold story” that both the Democratic Congress and the Obama Presidency protected General Stanley McChrystal from public scrutiny of his central role in the cover-up of Pat Tillman’s friendly-fire death. This cover-up was a thoroughly bi-partisan affair. It wasn’t just a case of the Bush administration and the Army stonewalling the Democratic Congress. Congress didn’t just “fumble” the ball, they threw the game.

It’s not surprising that after their initial cover-up of Pat Tillman’s friendly-fire death fell apart, Army officers and the Bush administration lied to protect their careers. But after they took control of both Houses of Congress in 2006, the Democrats (including Congressman Henry Waxman, Senator Carl Levin, and Senator Jim Webb) and Senator John McCain could have gone after those responsible. Or at least not promoted them twice!

Just before the 2006 mid-term elections, Kevin Tillman published his eloquent letter, “After Pat’s Birthday”. Kevin had hoped a Democratic Congress would bring accountability back to our country. But, just as with warrantless wiretapping and torture, those responsible for the cover-up of his brother’s friendly-fire death have never been held accountable for their actions.

Five years ago, Pat Tillman’s family were handed a tarnished Silver Star. It was a travesty of justice that President Obama and the Senate promoted General McChrystal to the Army’s highest rank, and handed him his fourth star.
