Re: “Brad Pitt World War II bloodbath Fury calls to mind a lot of other war movies

Craig Lindsey is the writer who insisted that the 1/4 Jewish Jay Baruchel absolutely must be paired with a Jewish actress in his review of The Sorcerer's Apprentice.

So Craig, are you okay with the fully Jewish heartthrob Logan Lerman being paired with a German woman in this film? Especially considering Logan is the grandson of a German Jewish refugee who was the same age in 1945 as Logan's character is in the film?

Re: “Our talk with Gone Girl's Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry, Neil Patrick Harris, Gillian Flynn and David Fincher

I’ve read “Gone Girl,” and while it didn’t bore me, I don’t understand why it was hailed as a literary masterpiece and the definitive statement about male-female relationships. It’s really just a lurid pulp novel, not much different from the paperback thrillers that John D. MacDonald, Lawrence Block and Donald E. Westlake were writing 50 years ago.

Except that MacDonald, Block and Westlake were better writers than Gillian Flynn. So was Ross Macdonald, author of the Lew Archer detective series, who Flynn has cited as an inspiration.

I didn’t believe anything that happened in the second half of “Gone Girl,” It’s just TOO cleverly plotted. It kept me turning the pages, but so do Mike Hammer and James Bond novels.

I also don’t understand why the movie is being hyped as the most eagerly awaited movie since THE GODFATHER, or maybe GONE WITH THE WIND. Most of the hype is coming not from the studio, but from people who write about pop culture for a living.

Most of these writers also tend to regard “Mad Men,” “Breaking Bad” and “Girls” as the greatest artistic achievements of the last several decades … which indicates how little art (or entertainment) they’ve consumed.

Are these commentators so starved for an adult-targeted movie, they’re falling over themselves to praise what is really a pop thriller?

Re: “Despite its brilliant subject, new documentary Finding Fela never finds its own rhythm

Finding Fela tells the story of life, Fela Kuti's (1938 - 1997), his music, and social and political importance. This in-depth look at the man who created Afrobeat, a fusion of jazz, traditional West African rhythms, funk, highlife, and psychedelic rock is cool

Re: “Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem: grinding gears in a genius' head

Whew! One of the worst films I have ever seen. Limp satire, pointless, visuals run amok, etc. Even worse than Gilliam's other movies, though I give passes to "Brazil" and "12 Monkeys." Some things are simply immune to satire.

Re: “Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem: grinding gears in a genius' head

The project "The Zero Theorem" sat in a drawer for almost 10 years, during which various names have been circulated starring actors - from Billy Bob Thornton to Ewan McGregor to reach Christoph Waltz - but some name directors to take over the project, its world premiere at the prestigious International Film Festival of Venice in 2013, retro-futuristic science fiction the Zero Theorem, filmed last year in Bucharest, is an acid satire, Orwellian shades , to the contemporary world dominated by computers and large corporations. Reminiscent of Brazil, Gilliam's film carries specific brands: eccentricity and unusual humor, burlesque characters and contrasts between low-tech futurism and classic decor decomposition, a very good being watched

> Even granting the popularity of recent "faith-based" religious propaganda films, however, it is difficult to understand how something this amateurishly made managed to procure a wide release.

Re: “Gripping Calvary a who'll-do-it instead of a whodunit — but it has even larger mysteries in mind

Do not be indifferent. Do not be cynical. Do not lose your patience. Do not forget to forgive. Do not think you have any power. Do not lie that you could understand. Do not despair.
