Re: “Under the Skin

Ha ha, good one. You've got a point there. But sometimes emptiness can be refreshing.

Re: “Under the Skin

the only interesting thing about this movie is that it depicts on screen what is actually happening to the audience; suckers lured in by a pretty face only to get quagmired in timeless gelatin of emptiness.

Re: “Cesar Chavez

" even remember to pay tribute to the Filipino manongs in Delano whose labor actions dovetail with those of the NFWA."

DOVETAIL??? Larry Itliong and the AWOC started the Delano Grape Strike. Chavez had to be convinced by Itliong and Huerta to join. I am certainly a fan of Cesar Chavez, but Filipinos started the farm worker movement in California, and they deserve more than "tribute." Please read Carlos Bulosan's _America Is in the Heart_. It deserves its own movie!

Re: “The Wolf of Wall Street

Using 500 times the word 'fuck' is a bore, over the top and speaks for itself. No plot, plain vulgair and decadence, the right movie for the pauper

Re: “California Crude

This movie was aweful. Super boring and extremely bad character development. A mater piece? More like a piece of shit.

Re: “The Wind Rises

'The Wind Rises' can be seen as a bookend film linking back to Miyazaki's original nuclear warning epic 'The Valley of the Wind.' You may not like Jiro as a sort of Japanese WWII apologist, but let us not forget which country actually dropped the bomb on Hiroshima and which American company (General Electric) helped build a purposefully faulty Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. Miyazaki points out what we are losing while reminding us we're all in this current nuclear nightmare together.

Re: “The Wolf of Wall Street

I saw this movie tonight and totally agree with the crtitic, it stunk. How many drug fueled orgies and selfish immoral acts must be overdramatized to get the point, at least 40 minutes too long. DiCaprio complimented MS at the GG awards for his depiction of "real" American life, that alone should show how out of touch he and all Hollywood is with the struggles of average Americans and how ingrained immorality is on the Hollywood scene.

Re: “The Wolf of Wall Street

You sir, should not be writing about cinema. Go finish your novel and then eat it and get a very sore tummy. The world is beyond you. Retire.

Re: “The Wolf of Wall Street

It is an entertaining and clever portrayal of the nature of young aspiring businessmen, and demonstrates an addiction to monetary benefits. Leo captures the "never enough" aspect of young money through the affair and deciding to stick with the company.

Re: “The Wolf of Wall Street

Funny thing that you would describe a movie like Parkland, who was probably the most empty film of the year "a fascinating docudrama", and consider The Wolf of Wall Street to be empty.

Re: “California Crude

I like this review because it's witty and bold. It's fun how some of the commenters here hate you. That means this movie has a loyal ignorant fan base.
I just watched the movie, there's a lot that I've missed, altough statistically much less than the average commenter here.

Finally I want to congratulate you for your review, I wish one day to be able to review movies, or any other form of art for that matter, as good as you!

Re: “Spark: A Burning Man Story

This is the WORST movie we ever saw! We want our 2hrs of time and 5.99 refunded and the memory taken out of our heads!!! The story sucked donkey Dix, terrible story telling, amateur editing, a 4yr old on you tube could kick butt on this 'film'. Honestly, our 7lb dog's turds are more entertaining. Makes people Embarrassed to be burners!

Spark team should go back back to making shitty lattes and selling jeans at the gap. Could have saved the $$$ spent on making this movie to buy Larry Harvey new teeth and English lessons!
