Re: “Burn After Reading

Did the writer really tell us the last line of the movie? Just a gag, right. No would with half a brain would reveal the last line of a movie before any of us have actually seen it. Clusterfuck, indeed.

Re: “You Don't Mess with the Zohan

Stupid is NEVER an excuse for anything. In my day, films like this one (of the Bowery Boys "genre") would hardly ever light up the screens of any first-run theater.
Just a sign of our cultural descent.
Ugly, ugly, ugly and not to forget, juvenile and STUPID

Re: “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

I can not agree more. I'm speechless... How do you go over the top in an Indiana Jones movie? I wish I could put it into words how disappointed I am with this movie. I wanted so bad for it to take me back to my childhood, maybe I'm just jaded, but that still doesn't forgive this film. I wonder what the die hard fans think. I feel so sorry for them.

Re: “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

So what if this movie has no REAL blood spilled anywhere, Indy's son acts like James Dean with a wig, the lines are corny, the plot is mostly an "x-files" rip off, Cate Blanchett's face looks painted on, and Indy seems about 80 years old....until he takes his shirt off....or maybe that chest is computer generated too??

It is an enjoyable romp back to the 1950s....when movies were FUN and no one was supremely dysfunctional or expected to be realistic. The suburb set up for the atomic blast was GREAT and so was the solution to Indy's survival.

Kids will love this movie!! Oldtimers like me are happy to see a movie that doesn't require a book club discussion to understand or spill realistic "blood and guts" all over the screen. Everyone knows that most movies are all special effects and are used to it!

Relax and enjoy the show! Sunshines!!

Re: “Speed Racer

Wow, this may be the most pretentious movie review I have ever read. Why don't you try to write for your audience instead of showing off your vocabulary and knowledge of pop art and architecture? This isn't a college essay.

Re: “Body of War

I saw the documentary last night and was very moved by the story. The message makes clear the true price of war. It could have shoved the truth down your throat but instead eases the viewer into the reality of the situation with a slice of life portrayal of an honorable soldier who suffers for our "freedoms". It gives a human face to what the American public is disconnected from in the Iraq "war". Thank you Tomas for your service and for honest bravery. You rock! Keep on rollin'!

Re: “The Gang's in Town

This is a lousy review by Ella Taylor on the film "In Bruges"..
She has tunnel vision, and misses the whole point/tone of
this wonderful film..
A movie critic, you are not... Better Stick With Your Other
'Day-Time Job"...
