Re: “The Visit: Something old, something ew

Well, at least you all have good taste then ;-)
Most of MNS's movies are huge disappointments, the trailer cutter's should be put in jail. But thought this was pretty good. What was your opinion of 'Devil'?

Re: “The Visit: Something old, something ew

Your review of this movie, and your assessment of the New England Patriots, are both wrong. But, no one cares what you think, anyhow.

"Just as sure as the New England Patriots will find a new way to cheat their way to the championship"..Huh?...Poorly written review.

Re: “Burn, Witch, Burn, The Last American Virgin, Mad Max: Fury Road among new home entertainment titles

I am glad to know that... I liked the film when I saw it in my 20's... I liked the message and still do. 67 was Poitiers year that is for sure.

Re: “Burn, Witch, Burn, The Last American Virgin, Mad Max: Fury Road among new home entertainment titles

Thanks for writing, Rob. The studio was indeed worried about how the film would play in the South, but it ended up being a smash here just like everywhere else in the country. Various sources (including IMDb) state that "This film was instrumental in largely ending the marketing consideration of how films featuring African-American characters and themes were assumed to be likely rejected by mainstream audiences in the Southern States of the USA. In that regard, the film was such a major widespread success throughout the entire USA, including the South, that the marketing factor would never again be considered a major problem for any major film release."

Re: “Burn, Witch, Burn, The Last American Virgin, Mad Max: Fury Road among new home entertainment titles

Could you imagine the reaction from the South when Guess Who's Coming to Dinner received when it was released? I wonder how it did money wise here. I know it was one of the top 5 grossing films of the year elsewhere.

Re: “Burn, Witch, Burn, The Last American Virgin, Mad Max: Fury Road among new home entertainment titles

The scene where Spencer Tracy gives that long speech at dinner where what people will think of an interracial couple in 1967 does not matter. Only what they feel for each other was shot in one take... Spencer Tracy was dying when he made this film. Katherine Hepburn and Stanley Kramer gave up their salary for the film to cover cost in case Tracy died during production... Columbia could not get him insured because of his declining health...
The tears you saw Katherine Hepburn and Sidney Poitier shedding were real, that was not scripted. Some great performers in a poignant farewell to one of the best actors ever.

Re: “Fantastic Four: Doom watch

Thanks for writing, FranklinDallas and Alice. Ha; I like Fraggle Rock as well, but "suspense" isn't a word I would exactly associate with it. :)

Re: “Irrational Man an erratic movie

"Irrational Man" was great and Emma Stone dazzled once again. I hope Mr. Romance continues to cast her because she's so charismatic and versatile (two qualities that the stoic Mia Farrow lacked). I wouldn't put this film on the same level as Radio Days, Match Point or Midnight in Paris; but it's certainly worthy of AT LEAST a 3 out of 4-star rating. Woody Allen never ceases to amaze me. ALL of his films are better than 90% of the crap that manages to seep its way through theaters and "Irrational Man" is no exception. -AKR

Re: “Irrational Man an erratic movie

Hi, Msnomer. I'm sorry you feel the movie has been ruined. I'm very careful not to add spoilers to my reviews. Which part do you think qualifies as a spoiler? I don't think I included anything that hasn't been mentioned in other reviews, interviews, etc.

Re: “Irrational Man an erratic movie

A spoiler alert would have been greatly appreciated! Now the movie I wanted to see has been ruined for me. Thanks.

Re: “Bright cast partly saves flimsy Paper Towns

As someone who is a huge fan of the novel, I was incredibly disappointed with the adaptation. Cara Delevingne was to bland and uncharismaic to play Margo. The rest of the cast was great but it was a shame to see such a interesting character be tossed into the the hands of such a dull actress.

Re: “Bright cast partly saves flimsy Paper Towns

I hate a plot that takes you nowhere and this film is a prime example. At the end Margo has no interest in him and neither did she in the very beginning. Sadly a young Quentin couldn’t accept this. And here comes the bad news: Opposites don’t attract. -AKR

Re: “Look! Up On The Screen!: The best and worst superhero films of all time

The first Ninja Turtles was a contender for the 5 worst list? That movie is great. I could see II or III on there, but to say any of them was a contender is pretty harsh.
