Re: “The hit documentary Blackfish has a message as dubious as its methods

This is the most ridiculous article I have ever read. Clearly these authors have not done any research on this subject. SeaWorld's very own documents are available all over the internet that contradict every statement they have made publicly, including under oath, in response to the accusations made in the movie "Blackfish". Notably, one of the authors of this article is a former marine park employee. I would think that having a background in the care of animals would encourage due diligence in researching serious allegations against a publicly traded entertainment corporation involved in the care and breeding of animals. Shameful and disgusting. Please do your research before posting misinformed articles such as this!

Re: “First-rate Larry Brown adaptation Joe a reminder how good Nicolas Cage and director David Gordon Green can be

"Joe" is a comeback for "serious things" both Nicolas Cage and David Gordon Green, scored Indie Wire. Green most recently directed some comedies like "Pineapple Express," "Your Highness" and "The Sitter", but surprised last year with a different type of comedy - "Prince Avalanche".
The movie "Joe" is based on a novel by Larry Brown tells the story of a friendship that binds former inmate Joe with a boy of 15, from a broken family. "The film flirts with multiple genres - melodrama, comedy, story-maturing but ultimately closest of being the first western directed by Green" was written review of Indie Wire after last year's projection Venice Film Festival.

Re: “When a Spider-Man movie makes you want to punch Peter Parker, you've got trouble

"We're just waiting for it to be over, and praying that the inevitable sequel will be better."

I have no interest whatsoever in this movie. Rebooting Spider-Man for the TWILIGHT audience was not a good idea; I walked out of the last one in boredom, long before the end.

These movies are only being made because Sony has to produce a new Spider-Man movie every few years or lose the movie rights to Marvel/Disney. For that reason alone, there will be a Spider-Man movie every few years for the rest of my life. Ho hum.

Re: “First-rate Larry Brown adaptation Joe a reminder how good Nicolas Cage and director David Gordon Green can be

"By taking a pause from "transgressive" films like Pineapple Express, the director has found his way back to the true, hard work of real life."

This. This gets all the eye rolls.

Re: “Under the Skin a feat of human creativity that dares to approach the inhuman

I can not hide excitement about this film, so if you overdo the praise, I did not take it the wrong way, Under the Skin is screening a very good novel written by Michel Faber. The main character is Scarlett Johansson in the role of a sexy alien who travels on a highway in the Highlands of Scotland in search of lonely people that you seduce then send them on her planet, where human flesh is a delicacy. On the ground it comes in the guise of Laura, a seductive woman who uses her sexuality to capture muscular and lonely hitchhikers. Life on earth but a change and soon begins to be curious and drawn to the complexity of human conflict with his own race, a very good film

Re: “Wes Anderson packs everything for The Grand Budapest Hotel

Hotel Budapest looks like a huge hotel in the interwar period , all the details are carefully documented, and in brief covers when the action finishes up in the 60s , the colors and light are like a movie from the 60s . It is perhaps Anderson 's first film in which substance has caught up with visual imagination , in other words , the time when lush visual content is finally justified . The film is , if you will, a delirium controlled everything - from scenery , proper names , characters up how to shoot , fall under parody refined colors and threads If not "The Grand Budapest Hotel" is worth seeing for the performances accurate of all actors - especially Ralph Fiennes (who has the lead role ) . More than in other films, Wes Anderson manages to not lose your head and keep the lines tight game each player .
Although the story sparkles with humor , parody and fantasy interpretations are elastic but firm - do not become Cabotine any moment . It's a pleasure to see so many famous actors who work roles be accepted for two minutes. It seems like everyone was fun to film

Re: “Big-screen Veronica Mars more enjoyable as a reunion than a movie

@Kimberly it could resolved in a second movie :D! The movie ends with class separation so we can only assume that, that is where everything will pick up if VM gets a sequel. I think this reviewer missed the first season. Sure there were some class discussion in season 1 (much like how it was lightly talked in the movie), but the second season was ALL about the 09ners and the PCHer war. This movie was PAID for by the fans. If this movie came out and it was some sort of lame attempt at a stand alone movie, what would the fans think - I can tell you I would feel like I wasted my money. Its for the marshmallows through and through and this reviewer doesn't get it.

Yes, Lubitsch. I also saw some Ophuls and Frank Borzage.

I wonder if the person who wrote this review watched the movie. Most of it is detached from reality.

Re: “Big-screen Veronica Mars more enjoyable as a reunion than a movie

The only thing that is true in this HORRIFIC review is the fact that the class differences are muted. Seeing one of Veronica's trusted friends and confidants mowed down and shot by one of Veronica's mortal enemies is the only thing in the film that lacks resolution.

Re: “Beefcake-loaded 300 sequel Rise of an Empire holds out for a gyro

We acknowledge that we did not expect much from 300 : Rise of an empire , but the film semi- beginners Noam Murro ( Smart People has only comedy to active) is sufficiently short , intense and spectacular to convince us that it is worth considering for some cinema seating . Eva Green is what's good in this film whose events take place simultaneously with those of 300, Zack Snyder's 2006 film short while King Leonidas ( Gerard Butler ) and those of his brave 300 goes to Thermopylae to cope with god King Xerxes of Persia ( Rodrigo Santoro ) , the Aegean Sea there is a confrontation between warlord Themistocles ( Sullivan Stapleton ) and his soldiers gathered from all the Greek city states of the Persian naval force led by unpredictable Artemisia ( Green ) . What in the first film became a life and death battle between the two forces incomparable now takes advantage of the sea , constantly changing environment that requires rapid adaptation of military strategy , a very good movie for adults , too much blood

Re: “Uneven Divergent better as romance than dystopian thriller, but Shailene Woodley makes a born leader

Production " divergent " seems sometimes keeps retention in progress Chapter characters . The fact that you have the starring Kate Winslet and do not take advantage of presence to shape a convincing antagonist can be a problem. Yet , in my opinion , to achieve a high potential for improvement Leitmotif fear that cross passages with characters being orchestrated quality. And how fear directs all the tools , I like that clear rules are established between rebellion, debt and liabilities . " Divergent " I train with some musical compositions embedded in the right context with perfect rhythm , finding formula ( almost) absolute for a film that promises to launch echoes in an area that the audience is quick to label it . A delight for a man who tests everything the dystopian universes can offer. Especially when relations between protagonists help you understand their posts , a good movie for the whole family

Re: “Beefcake-loaded 300 sequel Rise of an Empire holds out for a gyro

So tired of reading the bullshit, bullshit, bullshit spewing from so obviously envious & understandably "jealous beyond reason" wannabes such as yourself Simon. Come on - will you guys EVER be able to truly give an honest review if the movie showcases a male specimen who is young, handsome, & fit? Geez! The movie was titled "300 - Rise of an Empire"!!! It was about some of the strongest, toughest, bravest men who ever existed (real or mythologically), & the battles they fought & the WAY they fought. It was rough, bloody, & raw. And yes, they were BEEFCAKES. We, the audience would expect NOTHING LESS!!! I guess if you had been the director/casting director, you would have made the movie, what??? Softer? Kinder? Less ROUGH? With a bunch of flabby ars actors limping along? Sorry. You are dead wrong on this one. Rather than 'green' with envy, I think you are 'blind' instead. Bone up on your Greek history, legends, mythology.....oh, and DEAL WITH IT!

Re: “Beefcake-loaded 300 sequel Rise of an Empire holds out for a gyro

Yeah pretty $h!t review. Not because I'm fanning over the film, but because of the blatantly adversarial approach (..and word choice(s) to the concept of the film and/or its subject.

Reminds me of a combat objector attending a war film and complaining about the violence during an assessment.
