Re: “Drifting Off Course

Quite honestly Bob I think it more so comes down to the fact you have no idea of the history. If you want a straight biopic, by all means find one. This was for the people who would rather have the romance of he 1976 season played out into a watchable film. In all honesty if you wanted to have a quip with something it should have been the special effects that were forced by this meager budget. The rest of the film, up until the race at Suzuka were almost 1:1.

Re: “Drifting Off Course

Richard Poole....I had meant to type "documentary" not "autobiography." I clearly made a mistake on that one. The point I was making is that the story was so amazing I would've preferred a recently made documentary rather than this movie. My bad.

Re: “Drifting Off Course

"It also had me wishing that the movie was just an autobiography of Lauda, who is still alive, and Hunt, who died of a heart attack at the age of 45."

Does this writer know the difference between an autobiography and a biography?

Re: “Drifting Off Course

Clearly you know nothing of the actual history. This film stays completely accurate right up until the last race, and that was only altered so people like you would go see it in theaters. Stay ignorant, Im amazed anyone would give you a job writing reviews you self righteous idiot.

Re: “Drifting Off Course

Just because your a minority doesn't make it overrated. It's called an opinion, and just because everybody else's is different than yours doesn't make you right. Pretentious critic

Re: “Drifting Off Course

What's with these 'professional critics' calling it overrated? It's called an opinion. Critics love the film, get used to that. If you don't, fine. Don't call it overrated just because your one of the minorities.

Re: “Family Despair

Plus that sister was completely covered up the whole time. I contemplated waiting for the tit and ass shot as a reward for sitting through the movie but then I remembered I have the American Apparel ad. And left.

Re: “Family Despair

I thought De Niro and Pfeiffer were completely mismatched. I hated hated HATED the daughter. One minute she's telling her brother how she just beat up a girl in the bathroom, and the very next he's asking her, "What's the first thing you notice about a guy?" "His eyes," she says, shoehorning clichéd and out-of-place dialogue down our throats. Also, didn't anyone find it weird that these kids are beating a lot of people up without the principal getting involved? And that everyone in the town magically speaks English without any of the American characters trying to speak a word of French? I walked out after forty minutes.

Re: “Family Despair

Lasted less than 30 minutes. You only need to know two things.

1. Michelle Pfeiffer and that hack accent.
2. Mafia relocated to Normandy?

Re: “The Fall TV Preview

Back in 1961, Newton Minnow, the new chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, you know, the folks that 'used' to regulate broadcasting, made a speech to the National Association of Broadcasters declaring that television was "A Vast Wasteland'.

At the time, he blasted them for the mindless drivel that passed as entertainment and the blaring commercials that interrupted all too often to cajole the viewer into buying something they didn't want or need.

Many years ago, I read a sci-fi story that posited that aliens invented television to dumb down the populace and make them docile. Hm, I wonder if that author knew something?

Re: “Everything Is Ruined

Like the previous poster said it's told in the movie why Lucas worked at the kindergarten, the school was closed down. Secondly we know all along that the protagonist is innocent. He is and always was. No molesting at any time.

Re: “Everything Is Ruined

....why his last job didn't work out???! It is in the movie the reason he works at the day care. His last job was a teacher at the local high school where Klara's brother attended. The town closed the school so he had to find employment elsewhere.

Re: “Brutality on BART

Apparently this kid is dead because his father never told him that when being confronted by cops-racist or not-sit the fuck down, shut the fuck up and put your hands behind your back. Do not move until told to.

Shot while attempting to r e a s o n with angry armed policemen?

The only fallacy of the first sentence of this comment is...surprise...the kid had no father and now his daughter has none. That's the African American Way.

Re: “Time to Sue Your Real Estate Agent

Set in the dreaded 70's. The movie opens with "city folk" moving in, perfectly happy, to an old dilapidated farm home far bigger than their needs in the middle of nowhere. And then it gets contrived.

Never seen that plot before.

Walked out of Conjuring and into the To Do List. Insulting. Even to 15 year olds. That floating Baby Ruth in the pool really gets them every time.

For both movies I spent a total of 60 minutes before I gave up.

Re: “Worst Western Ever?

Cascabel: why do you think they made the Lone Rangel a wimpy loser? Everything in that movie was the opposite of the high standards, of what Clayton Moore, the real "Lone Ranger" fought like hell to establish. If he knew about this movie, ahhh, I'd hate to think what he would have done!! Talk about destroying what the Lone Ranger meant to kids back then. And just who in the hell is Armin what's his face?

Re: “Worst Western Ever?

I was extremely disappointed in the movie. They made the Lone Ranger a wimpy loser, not the protector of the innocent, and Tonto in this movie was a joke, not the brave Indian companion who had principles and stood for justice. Too much revisionist history and PC crap shoved into this movie to make me ever want to see it again.
