Thanks for writing, Ana. I'm glad you enjoyed the movie, and I'm especially glad the proceeds went to good causes!

Cheers!

Re: “The Promise not a keeper

Despite almost all the critics giving this movie a low rating, I decided to watch this movie partly because all proceeds from the movie goes to various charities, which I happen to sponsor a couple. I don't know if it was due to the low expectation, but I loved the movie. The story was really good, the performances were great, the movie was captivating and on top of that I learnt a very important fact in history that has been ignored for a long time. Every single person in the movie theatre was glued to their seat till the last credit rolled. I really recommend this movie.

Re: “Ghost in the Shell is a vibrant enhancement

I agree with Matt, I really enjoyed this movie. I was surprised to see such a large number of negative reviews it has received on sites like Rotten Tomatoes. Scarlett Johansson did an excellent job in the role of Major. She was surrounded by a diverse and talented cast. The subject matter was thought-provoking and will become more relevant as time passes and the technology depicted becomes reality. What does it mean to be human? What are we without our memories? Can we trust our memories? This may have slowed the pace of the action sequences but I am okay with that if the story is interesting. Every film can't be a Michael Bay type mindless explosion-fest with little to no plot. I hope Johansson has the opportunity to revisit this universe in a sequel or two so her character can explore these questions of humanity in a world where the biological and technological are so closely merged.

Re: “Logan: No Country For Old X-Men

I really enjoyed this movie. I think it's everything a comic book movie needs. I thought blood and violence fit perfectly. Especially this being Hugh Jackman's last role as Wolverine. It didn't feel forced to me. Although I do think Deadpool had a big impact on the R rating. I especially thought the little girl stole the film. She was excellent. As well as Jackman as always. I do agree with you about the villains being weak though. They could have done a better job with that.

Re: “Logan: No Country For Old X-Men

I enjoyed your review and thought it was spot on. Also, I really detested how Mangold inserted 'Shane' into this movie. He has zero idea what the film is about. I have no clue what kind of statement he was trying to make other than some broad stroke like 'a brand sticks' or whatever. George Stevens was a brilliant director and Mangold does him a huge disservice by placing Shane into this dreck.

Re: “Logan: No Country For Old X-Men

Update: I just found and read the Cnet critic's review. Our reviews are 100% different, starting with the fact that he loved the movie and I gave it a mixed review. So I guess you're saying I plagiarized from him (even though I saw the movie waaay back on February 16) just because we have similar headlines? Wow, with hundreds of critics reviewing the same movies every week -- yeah, I'm sure THAT coincidence has never happened before! Therefore, I was correct in my assumption that this was just a case of a fanboy blindly lashing out. But thanks for writing!

Re: “Logan: No Country For Old X-Men

Are you drunk, Antony Thrope, or just exhibiting the usual fanboy hurt? I have never plagiarized in my 25+ years as a critic and don't plan to start now. Give me specific examples of what I supposedly plagiarized before making Trump-like b.s. accusations.

Re: “Logan: No Country For Old X-Men

Cnet is widely read, and probably not the best place for you to plagerize your reviews from.

Re: “Passengers: A Space Idiocy

Oh my god...see, I didn't call him a stalker. I said that the thing people were saying in response to someone calling out major plot points in this movie as grossly mishandled sounded like what stalkers say to justify their actions: it's ok because I O.M.G love this person. That was my point. Everyone making apologies had the same rationale as that. They basically said that a man doing terrible things to a woman is fine if he thinks he really loves her.
Can we stop now? We're not going to change each other's minds and I'm tired of getting email notifications for this.

Re: “Fifty Shades Darker: Grey Lady Down

Why is it that we're all fascinated by car crashes such as this?! These movies are pure entertainment. Hilarious and overdramatic!!!! brooding and constipated looks are apparently sexy these days

Re: “John Wick: Chapter Two too much

"Adrenaline being satisfactorily pumped has fallen significantly," after reading exceedingly boring and self-aggrandizing reviews by Matt Brunson.

Re: “Passengers: A Space Idiocy

Titus Most reviewers love jumping on bandwagons. I have had a similar discussions on other reviews so I'm not just picking on Matt.

Actually if you accept he was a stalker, which I don't, then this film actually give them a good name, after all he choose to give up his prey, to give the person he fell in love with by watching her videos, reading her writings and eventually by talking to her. Not many real world stalkers would do that.

Re: “Passengers: A Space Idiocy

Ok, dude. Matt's not really the first to point this out so it's not like everyone else in the world was just perfectly fine with this movie. Most reviewers and audience members were pretty strongly on the side of "this movie is gross" but you keep fighting the good fight. Stalkers everywhere are getting a bad name, am I right?

Re: “Passengers: A Space Idiocy

Matt Brunson So stalking is to admire someone from the distant and to try and learn about that person before introducing yourself to herself? or turn it around is it wrong for a women to get to find out a few details about a man before introducing themselves to them?

Let put it this way Matt, have you ever ask a friend about a girl before talking to her, or ask her girlfriends about her dislikes and like are? Have you ever went and look at their twitter, google plus, facebook profiles etc etc before asking a girl out?

There wasn't any rape in this film. There was consensual sex throughout this film. An the stalking was nothing most people in teens, twenties and thirties haven't done in the age of social media and the internet.

People in love make ridiculous choices, by the end of the film contrary to her better judgement, Aurora was just as much in love with Jim.

Re: “Passengers: A Space Idiocy

Thanks for writing, Titus. And thanks for restoring my faith in humanity -- the previous comments from the two rape apologists / stalker apologists left me sadly shaking my head.

Re: “Passengers: A Space Idiocy

Love the comments from people being like, "hey, he was in love with her so that's why he woke her up. Not a problem." Isn't that what stalkers say? "I was in love with her so I followed her around then abducted her. It's not icky; it's love."

Re: “Rogue One: The Dark Side of the Series

Return Of The Jedi is a good movie and a nice conclusion to the series. But it doesn't hold a candle to the first two. Kind of like with Back To The Future part 3.
