Re: “Life is Scary Fun

Are you "That" Colin Boyd? If so, I'm very glad to find you again. Loved your reviews in Phoenix and on!

Re: “Monster Mayhem

Can't a girl just enjoy sex in a movie without there being some sort of moral comeuppance for it?

Re: “Black Sludge

Actually this was way better that Birdman (ya, the one all the critics have decided is wonderful-not)!

Re: “Despicable Man

The only depressing movie is a bad movie. You're awfully harsh on this movie simply because you don't care for the main character. Perhaps another line of work for you is in order.

Re: “American War Story

Review doesn't match opinions of anybody I talked to that wished it were longer. Going to see in spite of this review.

Re: “Feeling Gravity's Pull

Just wanted to see some of the stuff like Mike saying he was in Roswell was actually showing early on some of them are already im different "deminisions." Also how Laura says she doesn't do Yoga, these things are happening but in different timeline than Laura and Mike are in; but happen in other characters time lines.

Re: “American War Story

Jesse Ventura defrauded the people of Minnesota to become Governor by lying about being a Navy SEAL. VENTURA STOLE THE VALOR OF OTHERS to win the 1998 election by a very slim margin.
Ventura bribed a guy to leave the 1998 Reform Party so he wouldn't have competition in the Reform primary. When complaints were filed against Ventura for election violations, Susan Gaertner, Ramsey County Attorney at the time, fixed the investigation and its outcome, and got her boyfriend John Wodele a job with Ventura. Gaertner is now with the Minneapolis law firm of Gray Plant Mooty.
This is well documented in the book "ALWAYS CHEAT". Call for a complimentary copy. 612-529-5253.
Overview of book -
Ventura's wife lied under oath in the Chris Kyle sniper trial when she said she never heard her husband disparage military or known him to lie. Her lies influenced the jury and were not rebutted by sniper lawyers. She heard him disparage and lie here -

Re: “Not Mom’s Lebowski

1. "The Big Lebowski" is a mom flick now?!

2. Thomas Pynchon is still out there? Tell him to say hi to D.B. Cooper for me.

Re: “Just Another Princess Flick

Hi Patrick...I guess it's about tone for me when it comes to Sweeney. I just feel like Burton got it. I wasn't offended by the voices, although Angela Lansbury was sorely missed.

Re: “Just Another Princess Flick

Bob, I think your take on ITW is spot-on, and totally credible coming from somebody who's seen the lovely 91 video, which is a true gem and probably still the best artifact of how to stage and sing and act the show. But. But. Your praise for Sweeney floored me! I thought the Burton version of Sweeney Todd was a real fart buger. I mean, nobody was up for the vocal demands of what is essentially an opera, especially not Helena Bonham Carter, who sounded like a dying flute whenever she opened her mouth. Johnny Depp was just a scowl and a hairdo. The whole thing felt like a lot of fake blood and bad lip syncing -- case in point here:

Re: “Just Another Princess Flick are totally wrong. I watched the Bernadette Peters version AFTER watching the movie. I had never seen any version of Into the Woods before. I just knew something had to be off when I was watching the movie because I was bored to death.

Re: “Best of in Cinema

Good call on Blue Ruin. I thought I was the only person in Tucson who saw it! It's on Netflix, BTW.

Re: “Just Another Princess Flick

Grimm fits the reviewer of the film. Why is he so angry?

This reviewer knew what he was writing even before he saw it. Very very obvious.

Re: “Just Another Princess Flick

This review is, down to the letter, exactly how this movie was to me. I was looking forward to this film, having seen Into the Woods in 1987 as a child and falling for its dark and charming humor. My children and I have enjoyed watching the production with Bernadette Peters over the years and were hopeful it might be half as good, which was in our minds still quite grand. I was impressed with the opening scene but it soon fell terribly flat. It dragged, feeling unusually long, and for us didn't pick up pace until well near the end. The singing often felt like a mirror production, voice wise, but lacked personality. There was maybe 2 light chuckles in the packed cinema that we watched it in on Christmas day. We walked out feeling like it was a mild disappointment, not horrible, but it really did lack so much. I was most shocked at the depressing performance of Tracy Ullman, normally an enormously funny and witty persona. I felt like Jack's mom needed serious clinical help for her depression, and that tone seemed to carry on throughout the entire show.
