Re: On what basis do you rate films ?

I agree with not rating a film if you didn't finish it or have too vague a recollection of it. Also I think it's a really bad idea to rate a movie based on how well made of a movie it was instead of rating it based on how much you like it. The whole point of the PSI thing is to get people with a sim...

Re: The Rev. Al Gore at it again

I dunno where he dragged socialism in the socialism vs capitalism etc comment. Pretty sure he's one of those people that thinks socialism = communism. And I'm guessing letting a corporation run rampantly free and avoiding any sort of a carbon tax or environmental regulations is going against freedom...

Re: The Rev. Al Gore at it again

I don't know if cricizing a documentary for its 'truthiness' is the way to go lol. Al Gore can't predict the future and neither can you, a documentary just presents information, you critique how well it was presented, how engaging it was, etc. I'm not someone who's feverishly into making change for ...

Re: Films where it matters which version you see

This list is a good example of why Criticker should be able to add notes to a list or allowing people to comment because the list alone doesn't show which version of the movie is recommended, just the list of films.

Re: Worst Year in Film?

I doubt it'll be 2017. I thought 2016 was shaping up to be bad for mainstream film but it was just back-loaded, the end of the year had Manchester By The Sea, La La Land, Moonlight, Arrival, Hell or High Water, Paterson, etc. In fact I'm pretty sure Hunt For The Wilderpeople was the only 2016 film r...

Re: Movies from the 30s worth watching (since most of us have seen so few)

Why no horror films? The result of that is one of the most highly acclaimed films of the early thirties, C. T. Dreyer's Vampyr, doesn't make the cut. Oh I just meant I don't have any horror films from the 30s listed on the wishlist I copied (it also doesn't really have musicals). Feel free to recom...

Movies from the 30s worth watching (since most of us have seen so few)

I guess based on that thread of top 5 films from each decade, most of us have seen very few films from the 30s so maybe we can figure out the ones worth seeing. I have 130 on my watchlist I've copied below, these are all talkies with generally good reviews I came across. Sorry the list doesn't have ...

Re: It's not you, it's me ...

The Princess Bride is the epitome of films overrated due to nostalgia. It's always between 6-10ish and they love it at that age and end up overrating it as adults. I remember they showed it to us in school 3 or 4 times. It's a fun movie but its ratings everywhere are always too high. Back To The Fut...

Re: Top five for each decade

Mine according to my ratings since I'm too lazy to think of them. I noticed that for the fifth film in each decade, there's always a tie with others rated the same so have to choose on that fifth one. I need to watch more movies from the 30s and I need to see more from the 80s but the 80s ones I hav...

Re: The Accountant - Questions with spoilers

I really hate those 'Everything wrong with....' videos that nit-pick some random small portion. I think a lot of the unexplained stuff in that film is because it's a bit rushed, probably could've been 10-20 minutes longer. Pretty good movie until the last 30ish minutes for me. After the mystery aspe...
