I liked TWBB, but I really like this review too. It's useful to read a critical opinion, especially one so culturally informed. The Chinatown comparisons are fascinating, especially with Huston playing a very similar "water tycoon" to Day-Lewis' Plainview.
I had no idea Day-Lewis was channeling John Huston so completely--but watching Huston on YouTube, sure enough, the resemblance is uncanny--especially considering Anderson and Day-Lewis must have hand-picked this persona. It IS worth talking about.
This review is ridiculous, you're thoughts are so misplaced. This is a beautifully crafted film with phenomenal performances and i would say that is simply my opinion but according to the likes and dislikes on these comments, I think its safe to say you're in the minority. Oh, and Magnolia was genius.
YOU'RE TEARING ME APART, KELLY!
Those who can't do much critic! intellectual or not... in reply to your garbage. One could answer: what pathetically garbagy mind set (It had to be to be able to generate such filth). If I had a choice to be you or Soraya, there is a strong one I'd pick her for her dignity, character and most of all: Innocence! something of which you seem to know nothing whatsoever. This alone voids out whatever you have to let out.
LOVED this film. So good. Lovers of all things music, film, entertainment, pop culture and history will also love. :) http://smarturl.it/SCtrailer

This is the most biased, pretentious and pointless review of a film that i've ever read. You should have skipped the 25 words you wrote about "Basterds" and written instead about how it annoys you that you know so damn much about film that you can't even put it towards actually reviewing a movie without comparing it to every other film that it references.
While I agree the movie was suspenseful and production values pretty good (in terms of close-ups, lighting, etc) for a 'scary movie', it had a strange, 'let-down' ending. While I wouldn't discourage anyone from seeing it, I suggest a matinee since it's a wee bit cheaper, and if you don't like the movie, you can at at least take comfort in fact that you didn't pay the full fare.
This an excellent article, yet there is one point for future consideration. When you work in this capacity at the Agency, you are a Case Officer and not an Agent. The FBI has agents and agents at the Agency are assets you cultivate. Just wanted to pass this along.
Wow. Really wrong about the melodies of this fantastic musical. I'm still humming them 2 days later.
I was impressed to find a reviewer who isn't a Hollywood sycophant. The movie was bad. The acting was the definition of over-acting. Found the final scene to be nothing but comical in its absurdity. Seems you've pissed a lot of people off by calling out the group-think.
100% right on. Bardem's performance makes this one of the best Bond films ever,
Kelly, dude, its as if you have ignored that fact that all this stuff, this "fake movie shenanigans" actually happened!
