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

Next time, I'd like a review from someone who actually watched the movie

After looking at the ghost of Dickens, I want to start a Christmas party. I see a beautiful Christmas item in a site. Can you give me some advice?

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.

Re: “Oh, Baby

Why do Hollywood producers continue to hire Jamie Foxx? There must be hundreds of African-American Actors available who DIDN'T defend Michael Vick's dogfighting operation. I sure as shit won't pay to see any movie he's in.

I saw it. A 21st-century version of "Network" it ain't.

Re: “Going Out of Style

I enjoyed "Going in Style" very much! I am 80 years young, and the movie gently poked fun at our foibles without making us look like dithering idiots. It was a gentle and humane comedy! Mi Gusto!!!!!

Re: “Keeping It Reel

Oh, Bob. Regarding your review of "La La Land": Really? Original? I guess it's been some time since you've seen REAL classics that clearly inspired multiple facets of this film, like, say "An American in Paris," "Singin' in the Rain," "A Star is Born," the Astaire-Rogers oeuvre and lesser films like "Xanadu,"and "Fame." Emma Stone was very good, but Gosling nearly ruined the film with his saturnine presence; comparing him to Sinatra and Gene Kelly is just ludicrous. The film really needed the ebullience of a Gene Kelly or the dapper charm of a Fred Astaire to really make it fly. It also needed help in the writing department; the script elements certainly betray Chazelle's youth and lack of real-life experience. I lived in L.A. for more than two decades and I cannot recall another film that so heavily romanticizes the city and the lives of its characters. Most actors in L.A. never get (paid) work in films or TV, and the small percentage who do mostly get work in commercials and as (non-union) extras. Most would gladly eat out of dumpsters for months for the chance to get a SAG card. For Stone's character to apparently limit her auditions to film and TV work shows extreme naivete, at best.
The John Legend character's assertion that "Jazz is dying" is simply not true; jazz has enjoyed a small but healthy niche market since the decline of big bands in the '50s. Given that jazz clubs are few in L.A., and regularly feature established artists of the genre with a lot more experience than Gosling's character has, some of his character's actions and attitudes are largely preposterous. How can his character have any "depth," as you put it, since there's so little of his backstory revealed to the audience?
Walter Kirn wrote a recent piece in Harper's in which he concisely skewers nostalgia, a concept in which this film is drenched: "It [nostalgia] tells romantic lies. It breeds reactionary sentiments by glorifying and simplifying what was and devaluing what is."

Re: “No-Hate Musical

"Her raven hair is going to draw a lot of Ann Margaret [sic] comparisons here..." Isn't raven hair black? I see auburn hair here (and in pictures of Ann-Margret as well).
