Re: The Cloverfield Paradox

The vitriol seems to be originating mostly from online and the anger that the Cloverfield pieces were slapped onto a movie that was not a Cloverfield film, then market stunted down everyone's throats during the Super Bowl. I thought it was pretty mediocre as a film apart from Chris O'Dowd, but it's...

Re: On The Topic of Rating Video Games

I would suggest not confusing well design mechanics and hard/demanding mechanics. The former can be easy or hand the later can be well designed or shit. Indeed. I haven't breached the Games ratings yet but for a quick personal example: Silent Hill has shit mechanics, but hot damn if it weren't a fo...

Re: Are we entering a new Age of Hollywood film-making?

This is a great question - I've been feeling this potential trend nagging in the back of my head for a year or more. There is certainly the feeling that Hollywood filmmaking is reaching, or has reached, an threshold of sorts. Part of it, I think and hasn't been mentioned yet, is the exposure of a ki...

Re: Worst film of 2017?

The Emoji Movie raped me and left me for dead. Or the closest a movie can come to doing that. God, I love you. Of the films I saw this year (and I generally don't go out of my way to see anticipated crap) Baywatch was the most objectively bad. But, Detroit was such an incomprehensibly uncomfortable...

Re: Are there any films you thought were terrible but are still glad you watched?

Most recent one that comes to mind is BoardingHouse



But I watch crap films and classics in just about equal measure, so I'm with RibCage on this one. About 20% of what I see is blissfully bad.

Re: How Movie Pass Works

OK - So I HAVE tried it for about a month and a half now. And I don't have enough good things to say about my experience. The deal is, they send a Credit Card that you then link to an app on your phone, that uses GPS/Location Services to make sure you are the one really using the card. Once you get ...

Re: NYT Top 25 of the 21st Century

Actually not a bad list - I can see the purpose behind each (whether I personally agree or not, they are well-reasoned). I've also only seen about half - of these, I do disagree with A Touch of Sin . Though again, I see their thought process. My quickie top 25 pulled from Criticker, sans shorts, and...

Some quick notes re: Wonder Woman (2017)

Trying my best to avoid the subject, after viewing last night, a discussion on the apparent feminism of Wonder Woman (2017) seems somehow appropriate, since the film seems to call attention to a desire to be so. While the film’s box office success is undeniable and popular acclaim is granted, I don’...
