Re: “Whatta Other Countries Got that We Ain’t Got?

Yeah, but we've got more cars and more guns.

Re: “The New Ice Age

A beautiful film about how well do any of us ever really know another person. I caught up with Charlotte Rampling on the red carpet in Hollywood outside the TCL Chinese Theater: She gives a profound insight into the relationship factor in a live interview. Check it out. You'll be glad you did. I also reviewed the film on my site: HollywoodGlee.

Re: “Green Ice

"Will the toddlers in the audience remember Norm's environmental campaign as they grow up?" PG movies are really not for toddlers unless they've already been numbed by watching the violence on the TV at home. The dearth of G rated films has prevented my young son from ever entering a movie theater.

Re: “Luck of the Draw: The Ten Best Movies of 2015

What a good year for films! Thanks for some great reviews, especially those "under the radar" small films that simply don't get good PR. Such as Room. We're so lucky to live in the Bay Area where we can see more films than anywhere else except LA & NYC.

Re: “Tarantino Hits Bottom with 'The Hateful Eight'

It's nice to see someone not falling for this. It's so bizarrely bad, it's almost a puzzle. Why would Tarantino, who I believe can certainly do better, settle for this? Why would the great cinematographer Richardson, who can certainly do MUCH better, settle for this?

My only answer is a crazy one....this is a practical joke. This is QT's "Emperor's New Clothes." He wants to see how many reviewers and experts will proclaim "MASTERPIECE," when they're really looking at some pretty sloppy schlock.

Re: “'Joy' Is as Entertaining as a Household Chore

I hope I'm logged in. I can't agree with your review. I thought the movie had depth and therefore would have benefitted from deeper layers of analysis, instead of teasing, sardonic one-liners. I strongly recommend the Times Talks interview of Lawrence and David O. Russell, by Maureen Dowd,

Re: “‘Concussion’ Is a Knockout

Or you can just watch League of Denial on PBS for free instead of this fictionalized account that panders to the NFL.…

Re: “Tarantino Hits Bottom with 'The Hateful Eight'

Disappointing is Ennio Morricon's barely-there musical score.
Go ahead, try playing any part of it in your mind.

This critic and review were paid for by the criminal police unions. Have a nice day.

He hasn't had a good idea since Reservoir Dogs. The nakedest of naked emperors.

Re: “Good News: The New ‘Star Wars’ Doesn’t Suck

It was a horrible movie. Most sites don't allow comments because they want to plug the movie. possibly for monetary gains, or sponsor support, possibly for political reasons like celebrating diversity in the film.. overall, the Star Wars the Force Awakens was a crappy emo millennial snooze fest, white male racist stereotype Hitler Youth bomb!

Re: “Good News: The New ‘Star Wars’ Doesn’t Suck

Did we watch the same movie?? what a joke! That movie sucked so bad! I can not believe the original cast agreed to do it! No story, bad acting, over the top forced emotions, whinny emo sissy villains. it was a total rip off of Episode 4 a new hope! what a nasty way to swindle money from fans! Disney and JJ Abrams created a real stinker.. worse then the prequels!

Re: “'Carol' Is No Triumph

Wow you missed out on so much. Movie goers you totally need to see this film to decide for yourselves!

Re: “'Carol' Is No Triumph

Wow, what a misguided, misses-the-point review! As just a film, Carol is a beautiful example of setting a scene and a mood, of shots and angles and pacing, film and color; as a story, it's a nuanced portrayal of desire, all the stronger through its restraint. Brilliantly written, acted and directed, I assume this reviewer was either texting throughout or waiting impatiently for a car crash or some other manufactured "excitement."

Re: “'Spotlight' Is Grim, But Worth Seeing

I find it very strange that the poster "neil allen" - real name Patrick O'Malley, 617-PATRICK - would complain about the catholic church. After all, he told his friends to give that same church money in the name of Margaret Hester O'Malley. Then he makes violent threats against all priests, says that all catholics are being raped in hell. . . It's all quite contradictory.

Re: “'Spotlight' Is Grim, But Worth Seeing

Hey, SNAPJudy, when will SNAP apologize for defending its resident psychologist/child pornographer Dr. Steve Taylor? You know, the one you trotted out to testify about catholic child abusers, who pled guilty to child porn, the one you BEGGED a judge to give probation?

Re: “'Spotlight' Is Grim, But Worth Seeing

"Spotlight" shows how difficult it is to get the truth out of an organized crime syndicate. A team of Boston journalists worked tirelessly to find out that the Catholic church knowingly was running a massive organized childrape crime syndicate in Boston and around the world back in a time when the Catholic had a powerful influence. It also shows how Catholic followers tried to help the church get away with it.

Make no mistake, this is a movie about organized crime, featuring the Catholic church, the largest organized childrape crime syndicate in the history of the US, and in BRUTAL defiance of Jesus in Matt 18:6-14, where Jesus said childrape was unforgivable.

The Catholic church's organized crime syndicate is worse than Whitey Bulger's from Black Mass. This movie shows how the Catholic church exhibited the same "code of silence" that the mafia has, without the honor, as they were protecting at least 249 "confessed" pedo-priests in Boston.

Whitey Bulger killed 20 adults. The creepy pedo-priests in the Catholic church raped over 1,000 children in Boston alone, thanks to at least 249 pedophile priests, hidden and protected by hundreds of other priests, including Cardinal Law. (Only 90 were known at the time of the movie, but credits at the end show 249).

The Catholic church admitted 4,329 substantiated, accused pedophile priests in the US in their own John Jay report of 2004, and of course they lied. The number is well over 6,900.

And the Catholic church hid & protected 100% of their known pedo-priests, worldwide (Matt 18:6-14). Cowardly, rampant, unforgivable evil, in brutal defiance of Jesus, has a name, and it is the Catholic church.

Re: “'Spotlight' Is Grim, But Worth Seeing

We hope everyone will see the "Spotlight" movie. Tragically these crimes and cover ups within the Catholic church around the world continue to this day.

Re: “'Spotlight' Is Grim, But Worth Seeing

Great review of an outstanding movie - except you must know, there is nothing pathetic about Phil Saviano! The man is a hero and person of great dignity. FYI.

Re: “'Victoria' Casts a Certain Spell

Fortunately, I saw the film weeks ago so this review(?) did not spoil it for me. But I can see that it makes little sense to read these reviews if you plan to see a film.
