Re: “Star Trek

Geez, is there a pay scale for printing these reviews for Hollywood? This is almost the same as appeared in a newspaper which I read in New York City, and both reviews were dazzling. I did not go expecting too much, and I guess I received what I expected. The film had plenty of bucks behind it and obviously a lot of care was taken to find actors which would appear faithful to the original characters. But if this is a 're-boot', I'd say it's time to switch operating systems. The audience left the auditorium which had been quite full, without a sound of enthusiasm. And my final word is.... "Yawn".

Black Hand Strawman

Contrary to what O�Malley claims, this film's only success is the blatant denigration of Italian-Americans. The filmmaker chose heinous photographs (autopsy, crime scene photos, etc.) to portray the �characters� of this saga, with no regard for the families who still reside in the wonderful city of Kansas City. The Italian-Americans of Kansas City represent a rich, vibrant culture. These individuals, many children of organized crime, have gone on to achieve great things. Doctors, lawyers, and business owners make up the group that has been besmirched by O�Malley�s portrayals. There is an appropriate way to depict history, and there is also an undignified, disrespectful manner in which to portray these events. O�Malley is nothing more then a greedy opportunist who chose the later for his own personal gain. Please do not support him by going to see his film.

Black Hand Strawman

Going into the movie with high expectations, I was hugely disappointed and thoroughly bored by the powerpoint-esque nature of the whole movie and felt that the pace was lethargic and the content was poorly edited. I found myself wishing I had a pen and paper handy in order to quickly jot down the members of family trees seeing as how the names were fired at the audience like a machine gun. Even more wasteful was the fact that key characters were rapidly and tangentially described as, "having been recently married," or "leaving behind one kid and a wife," while the plot moved on so quickly to the next person that the information seemed wasted.

All in all I believe the director was obviously able to find a plethora of information but had a poor eye for first laying out a cohesive yet concise story line (perhaps shortening the time covered would have allowed such indulgences) and secondly having a weak stomach for editing material. Good concept, great findings (pics and articles) but poor presentation and editing. Keep it up though, you are bound to improve from here.

Re: “Clash of the Titans

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It has undoubtedly more heart than the person that wrote this review.

This is probably my 4th time viewing this movie and I am touched every time. You experience a range of emotions while watching this movie - hope, anger, sorrow yet more importantly hope and a little more faith in mankind.

Re: “Seven Pounds

Interesting review. I particularly like your ending sentence. I most likely would not have seen the movie anyway but your view makes it even less certain. I did like Smith in the homeless rags to riches recent movie. But as you say, a movies' quality don't necessarily translate to the next film.

Re: “Quantum of Solace

Your opinion is more than valid, but please either do a little more research on the franchise or at least inform us why you've disqualified Octopussy, The Living Daylights, A View to a Kill, License to Kill, GoldenEye, The World is not Enough, Tomorrow Never Dies and Die Another Day when you inform us that the most recent entry is the first film not named after an Ian Fleming novel. I know it's an honest mistake, but it's one that could have been avoided by checking in with that guy in the office who is pretty familiar with the movies and is a bit of a trivia buff.
