Re: “Of Inhuman Bondage

I hate the word epic, but damn, I cannot think of another adjective to describe this review. Im sorry to hear that you were basically subjected to the Ludovico technique. But your sacrifice is much appreciated.

Half of me wants to tell you that, as a person who survived the viewing of at least two crappy Adrian Lyne movies, I know that you will heal someday. Bad Dumb Sucky Movie syndrome, a.k.a. BDSM, gets better with time and beer.

The other half, though, thinks that in twenty years this piece of junk will make a terrific Mondo Mondays screening at the Loft. They show The Room every year, dont they?

Re: “Reel Indie

I am biased about Monsieur Mayonnaise because I am one of the subjects of the film, but I did not make it.
Jeff Gardner is flippant about the film if not facetious, and your readers should know Trevor Graham's film has received tremendous reviews on every continent.

Re: “Creature Feature

The Shape of Water is one of the best films I've seen in my 80 years, but Bob, you missed the sheer humanity of it. Besides Water-man (more fish than amphibian, with gills), the cast is led by a mute working class Latina and an African American woman, a (probably) gay artist, and a Red spy -- all, with Water-man, examples of The Other, the lesser beings, the deplorables. Marginalized, powerless, subject to the life and death whims of white men with power, whether Russian or American. What stirred me most was how the unity of those marginalized folks overcame the power of the oppressors. The Shape of Water is a truly subversive and quite wonderful film, and one I will see again. I thought Frances McDormand had a lock on awards for Three Billboards, but Sally Hawkins' wordless amazing performance, I suspect, blows away any competition.

Re: “A Haunting Year

I agree with all except 3 bridges. The only character I liked was the sheriff and he was supposed to be the antagonist. Lots of dumb premises throughout and a cop out ending. Good acting though.

Re: “Room with a View

I'm not knocking Rifftrax when I say I'd rather watch The Room without the riffs. That's an exception, not the norm. For the most part, i'd rather see a bad movie with the riffs, but The Room by itself is better than anything Rifftrax can add to it. And Mike is not the master...Joel is.

Re: “Room with a View

Mike Nelson has been writing and riffing well over 200+ Shows.... so I would not discredit the master of Riffing, just because you are Franco's little fan boy.

Re: “Room with a View

No one's putting a gun to your head to watch it with Rifftrax. Don't put them down just because you're a hack writing another article about how "so bad it's good" The Room is. It's been out for 14 years.

Re: “Law and Disorder

Great acting and plot line. Incredibly unbelievable scenes. Cop in full uniform walks across the street, beats up guy, and then throws guy out of a window in the second story. Goes into the street and beats the guy. Then walks across the street to the police station where he works and resumes his day. The witnesses say nothing and the cops do nothing. Simply unbelievable. And the ending is AWFUL.

Re: “No Wonder

Admittedly,I was weaned on DC Comics. When Marvel came along...I enjoyed it as well. It's sad that DC has dropped the ball on our heroes . They insist on a heavy handed approach that portrays their heroes as angst driven,emotionally bogged down shells of themselves. Their reluctance to expand by experimenting with solo origin stories..(with the exception of Superman,Batman,and now Wonder Woman),when they should have...has made the Justice League seem rushed and two dimensional. Thinking they could catch up to The Avengers level,by making the hurried,shallow films they have produced so far...has left them looking lost and unsure about what DC fans expect from them.

Re: “Life Without Louis

"This is easily the worst thing C.K. has done since Pootie Tang."

I would imagine that I Love You, Daddy is worse. Pootie Tang was hilarious!

But, as Louis himself would probably say, "Different strokes for different folks".

Sorry, in light of what's going on with Louis right now, I just couldn't resist adding that in.

I know, I know...GROAN!

Re: “Fun and (Spy) Games

I thought "mother!" was the weirdest thing I'd see all year until I saw Elton John here, karate kicking people in a peacock suit. As uneven as it is, I loved this movie.
