Re: “Characters Sans Character

It seems a very interesting movie but I don't like a violence film either so I don't know if I really want to watch it.

Re: “Time Bomb

I vividly remember this review when I first read it (could not belive it at the time) when I lived in Tucson in 2003. Just read it again 7.5 years later and I still think this is one of the worst reviews of an excellent movie I have ever read in my life. Totally uncalled for and off-base on so many levels.

Re: “Heist Classic

If "looks" means a leathery face and lots of squinting, then I wholeheartedly concur. Or at least three-quarters-heartedly. No, check that, I whole-spleenedly concur. But seriously, is Eastwood just constantly looking into the sun or what?

Re: “A Big Bust ... or Two

Mira Jovovichi is now in the second phase. In the first, she plays the feeble exemplary as in the Million dollar hotel, then the phase shifts to the "kicking ass" movie. She can be full-blown after her youth wears out if there is her subsequent phase.

Re: “Immigrant Issues

I don't know. I could ask him, if you want. But I don't really know him that well. Or at all, really. But I suppose I could ask him out for a cup of coffee, watch sunsets with him, maybe even be his partner in a ballroom dancing class (Intermediate level, I'll have you know). Then, after all that, I shall ask him if he indeed still expects to be taken seriously as a film reviewer. Although actually, that almost sounds like more work than it's worth. Nah, I'm not doing it. I guess we'll just never know if he still expects to be taken seriously as a film reviewer (unless he, like, I don't know, continues to regularly write serious film reviews for the Tucson Weekly).

Oh, sorry, did you expect to be taken seriously as a commenter?

Re: “Immigrant Issues

Really? And Grimm still expects to be taken seriously as a "film reviewer"?

Re: “Left Turn at the Equator

It's pretty chic for the elite left to trash talk the country, the freedom and the policies that let them gain their fortunes. Oliver Stone would've never had the opportunity in Venezuela.

Re: “Swedish Suspense

Oh. I guess I wouldn't mind if DiGiovanna moved to France, as long as France then moved to here. But I hear that continental drift takes a long time, and I'm not sure I'd be willing to wait that long. Oh well. Come hither, France. Come hither.

Re: “Swedish Suspense

I mean't, we would all be happier if DiGiovanna moved to France. Well, maybe not you.

Re: “Call Me Fishmeal

Corman may have been a tad crass, but the people who made this trash are soulless Hollywood scum. Scoring Dreyfuss is a big deal? He's begging for work. The only roles he can get are in Lifetime TV movies. Quick, name me the last A movie was in?

Love story is better off boring. But more than brushing can be nice.

Re: “Swedish Suspense

I don't know if we would all be happier living in France. I guess it depends on who exactly you mean by "we". If "we" means all US citizens, then things could get a bit crowded over there. Plus, by deserting our current territory, we would basically be leaving this land up for grabs between Canada and Mexico. That could result in some sort of conflict, perhaps of the war variety. I don't currently have the sources necessary to properly speculate as to who would win that war, but let's just say it would be Canada.

If, on the other paw, "we" means a certain group of Tucsonans (specifically those who regularly or semi-regularly use their sight-organs to read the film review section of this here periodical known colloquially as "The Tucson Weekly"), then I am still not sure whether or not it is a good idea for "us" (me) to move to France. I admit that I am prone to pine for a piece or a parcel of Camembert from time to time. But I am troubled by the possibility that the French countryside might wax a wee bit frigid during the months which, if viewed as part of a seasonal cycle (or circle), would be positioned opposite from those of the summer season. And I don't speak any French (though I occasionally hear some). So I don't know. Quit bothering me.

Re: “Swedish Suspense

p.s. I think you would be happier living in France. Come to think of it, we all would be.

Re: “Swedish Suspense

Frankly DiGiovanna, your frequent and arrogant remarks about Americans being such an unenlightened bunch of people have worn very thin. Perhaps it allows you to feel superior, but its boring me to death.

Re: “Inception

James Cameron took us into the future and to stars for a breathtaking look at a world through the eyes of virtual reality, while director Christopher Nolan takes us into the human mind and a view of reality through our dreams. Philosophers from Plato to Descartes have tackled the question of reality and the dream world for a couple of thousand years. Christopher Nolan brings these questions and concepts of dreams and reality and drops it on our doorstep and then steps back and laughs. Like the Greek Myth of Theseus and Ariadne, sometimes the myths just don't make any sense, oh well. What Christopher Nolan does in Inception, is walk the fine line between madness and sanity, between greatness and confusion. The ultimate concept that permeates Inception is that one must trust. As the characters must trust each other when entering the dream world, the audience must trust that the world that Nolan creates on screen will not crumble before our eyes leaving us in limbo. Nolan is not above a prank or two. Read more:
