Re: "It"

I've noticed new releases' recommendations are almost always overestimated. Though they may not be weekly phenomena, I'm often surprised or even awed by how good some movies are compared to what I expected. To wit: The Only Living Boy in NY --10 (which was universally hated on by critics and audien...

"It"

In what universe does Criticker in any way shape or form possibly suggest that I'd give this horror/clown Stephen King schlock a 75--which it did. I'd give it a zero but that might suggest that I had actually watched the preview, or (retch) paid for a ticket. How can anybody not be sick to death of ...

"The Good Catholic"

No matter what you might think this is about from the title, you're wrong. IOW, don't not see the film because of it. It's neither a polemic mocking religious faith, nor does it say anything about religion except maybe why don't we all just sit down and start over. All four primary characters are su...

Oops, your bluntness is deserved, my face it red, and the title in the OP amended.

Re: Another masterpiece from Marc Webb.

I see Criticker has two ratings thus far, besides mine: 28 & 30. Guess I'm even more of an outlier than usual--which of course means......well, nevermind.

"The Only Living Boy in New York"--Another masterpiece from Marc Webb.

This is a movie that hits many of the same notes and soul-chords as "Like Sunday, Like Rain"--character, plot and dialogue driven low budget Indies, both well cast (Yes even Pierce Brosnan), but with no obligatory high octane action scenes, both inexplicably rated R, with low ratings (besi...

Yeah, who knew machine guns could be used as musical instruments. And BD was in my top three, but just got topped by Wind River. Hey, I know....combine the two, ahem, Baby WinDriver.

Wind River

Magnificent indeed. Renner at the top of his craft, and Elizabeth Olson, about who I was concerned, was well cast as the green FBI agent, whose character comes through when the situation required it. Bernthal has a very small part. Graham Green and Gil Birmingham are perfect mixes of stoicism and In...

I can't find that movie anywhere, but yeah, cool name. (If you're as old as you're whining about, that should be at least a little bit funny. 8-) )

Re: Detroit

Never mind about the Oscars. Looks like it's left wing bias was too obvious, and the box office sucked. But hey, maybe one nomination for Will Poulter so BLM can use him as their poster-cop. Anyone else wonder why during the shakedown at the Algiers, that the cops didn't have their badges or insigni...
