Re: “Exodus: Gods and Kings: The Wrath of God

"...made up to look exactly like John Boehner, right down to the sickly orange skin?"

Nothing partisan about that, jackass!

Re: “Dumb and Dumber To: I'm With Stupid

I agree with Philip Grimm, the original was brilliant and in no part thanks to the acting of Carrey and Daniels at the time. But it's not a movie that should have spawned a sequel. As for the reviewer all I can say is: Jim Carrey has played some amazing roles and so has Kathleen turner. They are both very talented people and I see no reason to denigrate them just because they haven't made a movie in a while. As for Turner, it took a lot of guts to play that role and show people a self deprecating side to her personality and not take herself so seriously. That's what acting is about. Maybe a lesson in humility is something you could learn from her!

Re: “Dumb and Dumber To: I'm With Stupid

You obviously haven't seen the original recently or maybe ever. This movie was a damned insult to the original brilliance that was the first outing. This tripe should have never been made as far as I am concerned. It has no redeeming quality. The two could absolutely not have been further off their original characters. It's like they have benjamin button disease and have regressed into pre-teenagers with a screenplay that seems to have been written for middle-schoolers. Actually that's an insult to the middle school aged person. This is just as bad as it gets.

Re: “The Conjuring offers modest thrills

So you're comparing this movie to Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island? I don't believe perspective is your strong point, Matt.

Re: “Left Behind: Pray that it ends

Bob Fitzgerald, your grasp of Christianity is woefully lacking. If anything, progressive Christians follow the example of Jesus more closely than your fear-mongering kind, since they believe in love and forgiveness and don't feel the need to bash gays, keep down women, spit on the poor, and other acts closely associated with more conservative pseudo-Christians such as yourself.

Re: “Left Behind: Pray that it ends

Sorry to the author, but you can not be a progressive and a Christian. Progressive treat Christians like Nazis treat Jews. That is why the writer hated the film so badly.

Re: “Calvary: Heaven Can Wait

Is it possible that the unfulfilled daughter, and betrayed butcher, share something in common..that in the end, or over time, perhaps create a bond that unites them not in forgiveness, but something else..united by a bond that results in passion, and simply the end result of the pain the results from disappointment, hurt, and expectations unfulfilled??

Re: “Left Behind: Pray that it ends

Not all Christians are homophobic hatemongers, Dave Lambers, and shame on you for thinking so.

Re: “Left Behind: Pray that it ends

In some ways its Rapture porn... in other ways its the truth. This event WILL happen, but not like this movie. It will be far worse. The movie itself was mediocre at best... and despite the lampooning critics, Nicholas Cage did a fine job acting. The sneering and mocking about this film is proof positive that the subject matter is hated by most of this world.

Re: “Left Behind: Pray that it ends

Is the author of this review claiming to be Christian? At most he sounds like a Unitarian.

You people that are commenting and being negative about this movie you are proving the point on what this movie is depicting.

Re: “Left Behind: Pray that it ends

I thought the movie was awesome and shows truth about what is and WILL happen in the end. There needs to be more people in this world that believes and budgets a film that shows the rapture in a true and honest way.

Re: “Left Behind: Pray that it ends

This is the End or Dogma are probably more likely to get people thinking about spiritual matters than the "everyone who doesn't believe exactly as we do will not be saved" message in the Left Behind books.

I heard Cage was having money troubles, but I never thought he would stoop to this...

Re: “The Skeleton Twins fleshes out dysfunction

Personally, I thought the movie did a great job of using the "humor" to cope with the serious issues at hand. The movie makes you feel for both characters as you stated a love-hate relationship. Constantly, having the viewer ask "Why would you do that?" and "Why did you say that?" Clever "cutting" sibling digs makes the story relatable. A beautifully well written piece that definitely pulls at your heart strings and essentially making you want to call your Siblings immediately after the show. I would have given 4 out of 5 a solid movie.

Re: “Calvary: Heaven Can Wait

I agree that there are many levels to this movie. While watching it, and at the climax, I was at times depressed, bored, and annoyed. That was 4 hours ago. As the evening wears on, the damn thing is growing in my gut, and I think I may have to force myself to watch it again because I know that I missed even more layers and nuances and shadows than I have been thinking about for the past hours. Some of the critics have used the terms "comedy" and "humor" in their reviews. While there are bits of everyday human irony and, yes, humor, don't go into this thinking it's a happy clappy film. It's anything but.

Re: “Calvary: Heaven Can Wait

He wasn't a good priest. He didn't cry for the kids who were abused by the Church. He was detached. There wasn't just one character in the film who was abused by priests. Watch the film again and count them. He was killed because he wasn't compassionate. Nor was the Church which preferred its symbols like cassocks and displays of authority to a real human reaching out to victims. Oh, Fr. James was at times understanding but could also shout at people when they needed real help. That's the problem with people acting like they're psychiatrists when they're not. There is no good priest when they protect the Church above protecting kids. It was clearly pointed out that he represented the Church. No decent person should when they protect pedophiles. They also protected bankers and condemned the wrong people as you may have done in your assessment of the villagers. They still do. This film is one half of the horror of growing up in Ireland. The other half is what happened to young women. Sinead Ó Connor knew. If she were a character in the town you would have probably thought her another foul person. There are many, many levels to this film and it worth seeing again and again. It is a shout out of 'Why don't you care?' from victims of pedophilia. Irish people have a very good reason to be bitter. It's not easy living in a Theocracy.
