Re: “Unfunny, Misogynist Anti-Superhero Returns in 'Deadpool 2'

What the hell are you saying about this movie being 'alt-right' and shit? I'm liberal as fuck and I enjoy the Deadpool movies. There is nothing alt-right about them. My boyfriend is Mexican and makes jokes about his, my, and every other race all the time. I'm a feminist and he doesn't come off as misogynistic to me. Liberals can make jokes about rape and race and shit too.

Re: “Jane Austen-in-Singapore 'Crazy Rich Asians' Fizzles

But the novel wasn't a "Jane Austen-style comedy of manners," so why should the film be one? The trilogy by Kevin Kwan has no character development and no lofty "ideas." The novels are pure entertainment -- as is the film.

Why expect something else from a film when you're not familiar with the original books -- except to say that they "seem to have the word 'rich' in their titles"? You've written a film review with absolutely no context and no clue.

Re: “How to Watch the New 'Papillon'

I was shocked at the laziness of your "Papillon" review. You said it doesn't compare to the original. But since the original was in 1973, are you relying on your 45 year-old *memory* for it? When was the last time you saw the original? Maybe you should look at it again and see how dated and melodramatic it really is. It's fine if you don't like the 2018 version, but to just toss it off and say "it's not as good as the 1973 original" means that you did not do your homework for your review. But I guess anyone can call themselves a "movie critic" these days...
