Re: “My Name Is Khan

All the trouble by the political group was finished on the first day of its release. There is no trouble anymore. do you homework before writing a blog.

Re: “Sherlock Holmes

It seems like the reviewer wants to have it both ways. The reviewer seems to take issue with what seems to be updatings and wants a more "traditional" Holmes, but wants the film to reference modern day issues.

And the fact is that this version of Holmes is probably closer to the source material than previous film versions. In point of fact, Conan Doyle did not have Holmes wear a deerstalker. That was the work of the illustator of the books.

And Holmes knew how to fight with his hands, among other weapons.

In the final analysis, I think most people go to movies to get away from the real world and not every movie should have to reference modern times.

Re: “A Serious Man

The Cohen Bros. did not make this film to please a general public of movie-goers. It is an extremely insightful and funny story about a Jewish family and Jewish life told by two brothers who are Jewish. It is a movie full of inside first-hand knowledge and it is very funny.

"Larry's pneumatic pothead of a neighbor..." who is "the sole looker in sight and therefore probably a shiksa" has a muzuzah on her home's outside door-frame. The whole scene of him deciding to knock on her door lets us know that she's Jewish. That, and the fact that she refers to Larry's other neighbors as "goys."

Depressing, humorous, and will leave you thinking hours after it's over. A beautiful movie.

Re: “The Baader Meinhof Complex

Really good review. This is an excellent film. Sometimes it's hard to believe the lengths that people will go to in order to spread their ideas. The film is very exciting and very thought provoking.

Bright Star

Easily one of the best dramas I've seen all year... The cast was amazing, and the music haunting. You should check out the film Bright Star�s official site, where they've announced the Love Letter Contest. Those who enter will have to submit a hand-made love letter or love tweet for their chance to win two unique diamonds from A Diamond Is Forever. Find more details here:

I'm glad Jane campion decided to step back into the director's chair for this one. I don't think anyone else could have captured the heart of the story like her.

Re: “Capitalism: A Love Story

coming upon a review for this movie, in the Pitch- I was cautious but curious, I think the review was well done. Michael Moore has certainly been an effective producer, I appreciate his involvement but have grown tired with his 'candid camera/ punk'd' reliance on these issues. Capitalism, a love story- falls so very short of displaying the benefits versus loss. Capitalism needs work- greed has taken it, start with taking ALL contributions to elected officials- have a government standard on the funds available, stop lobbyists... take those tools away.. Mr Moore simply complains, I wonder if he understands that without our form of government he would not be able to protest, and make lots of money doing it. I find him odd, like a cheap version of Oliver Stone- I would enjoy to watch him debate, live- with , oh.. anyone..

Re: “

The Stoning of Soraya M.

I'm a little confused, is this a review? If not, allow me to interject by saying that, contrary to your suggestion, it's well worth the watch. It's one thing to read about horrific acts in black and white on a newspaper headline, but it's much different to be brought very close to the event through a narrative film. If you're any kind of film buff you know the power that film has to highlight and accentuate events, bringing to light certain truths that can't be communicated through other mediums. The stoning depicted is brutal, yes, but it's edifying to experience it. You will feel incensed, violated, exposed and for all the right reasons. Having seen the film I can vouch for its importance as a catalyst for change. We cannot let another person be stoned, no not one.

Re: “My Sister's Keeper

I can't wait to watch this movie. I was a huge fan of the book and am hoping that this book, unlike other books, will be adapted into a really good movie. Have you seen the promos? Cameron Diaz seems amazing for the part. I love the interview she did alongside Sofia. http://www.iheartradio.com/cc-...

I'm excited for Friday!

Re: “

Sin Nombre

Quick correction. Sin Nombre is about Central American immigrants who have to pass through Mexico to get to the US. Big difference, for as awful as the US-Mexico border is, the Mexico-Guatemala border is much scarier.

Re: “Terminator: Salvation

I read this review wanting to comprehend some resemblance of coherence. I didn't get .This was is one of the most mangled , incoherent reviews of a movie I have ever read. What were you thinking? I'd really like to know what the movie was really about. I guess I will to see if for myself as I have no clue to what you have written in this review!!!!
