Re: “Spotlight: Fit to print

Victims of pedophile priest crimes are still trying to get out our stories and expose aiding and abetting by church leaders, which happened all over the country. We face amazing obstacles. The story in Spotlight would never break if it was coming up in today's corporate media. For more true stories about these crimes and the survivors, please read City of Angels Blog by Kay Ebeling. Thank you.

Re: “Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Terminator Genisys, Trainwreck among new home entertainment titles

I was a huge Michael Landon fan when he did Bonanza. I loathed little House.... Nellie and Harriett Oleson were the only two interesting characters... Landon's huge ego was imprinted on every frame of the series.

Re: “The Double-Oh Dossier

Thanks for writing, BondFan. As noted in both the article and an above comment, that list is in chronological order; otherwise, Tracy would have been #1. And M was admittedly a close miss.

Re: “The Double-Oh Dossier

How is M's death in Skyfall not listed. M, Vespar and Tracy should be 1-3.

Re: “Politics as usual: Truth and Our Brand Is Crisis

Thanks for writing, JT's White Suit (aka Garth Vader, because, let's face it, you're not fooling anyone by cowardly posting under different pseudonyms). Your sophomoric comments are always welcome!

Re: “Politics as usual: Truth and Our Brand Is Crisis

You have fallen for Rather and Mapes' false version of events. I followed the story at the time. The "truth" was that these fine folks tried to throw an election using a badly-sourced story and some documents that are known to be false now and were known to be unreliable at the time. And they were caught, not by anyone "spewing misogyny and racism", but by a bunch of amateur bloggers tracking down the clues in real time. As CBS now says, it was maybe the biggest embarrassment in their history.
Read up on the story; wikipedia has a good treatment.

Re: “Politics as usual: Truth and Our Brand Is Crisis

>> the Internet spewing misogyny and racism at every turn

You know Brunson, sometimes someone is just a jerk. Take you, you're a white male. But a jerk. So if Obama's a jerk, he's a jerk, not a "black jerk".

Re: “Kid Stuff: Goosebumps and Pan

You were dead on about Pan, until your last comment. Hook worse than Pan?! Not by a long shot. I've enjoyed Hook with my children and grandchildren, many times. I'll never get back the two hours wasted watching Pan.

Also, I thought Garrett Hedland's Hook was trying (miserably) to mimic Harrison Ford...but Indiana Jones, not Han Solo. And Princess Tiger Lily, dressed as Cher, was pretty awful too.

Re: “Politics as usual: Truth and Our Brand Is Crisis

In 1999 CBS also burned "The Insider" for the way 60 MINUTES (mis)handled The RJ Reynolds tobacco story.. The story that destroyed their integrity, credibility... Painted Mike Wallace in a very bad light to... All came down to money.

Thanks for writing, Pat. Or maybe you have the worse [sic] taste of all time?

Re: “Kid Stuff: Goosebumps and Pan

Seriously, these days I refrain from commenting usually, but Hook was incredible. You are possibly the worse critic of all time.

Re: “Chappie, Reptilicus, Spirited Away, The Sunshine Boys among new home entertainment titles

Just so you know, Spirited Away is *still* Japan's all-time top moneymaker by a large margin.

Re: “The Martian worth a close encounter

There is no understated intelligence. I don't think it's possible to dumb a movie down anymore than they did with this. Those who think this is a really good movie have to be the same morons that literally laugh out loud at some of the worst jokes and one-liners ever used. The type that don't get out much, don't get sarcasm, are easily offended so G rated humor only, and need a narrator to explain everything (in this case it's Matt Damon's video log). 2+ hours of watching potatoes grow on Mars and scientists & engineers on Earth solve complex problems without ever talking beyond a 3rd grade level of intellect.

Re: “Kid Stuff: Goosebumps and Pan

Thanks for writing, PanFan. Nope, not "retarted." That would be quite a feat for Hook to be "the most celebrated childhood adventure among anyone in the 80's," considering it didn't come out until the 1990s. Better step away from the keyboard before YOU hurt yourself.

No, discerning film fans (not just people who saw it as a kid and thought it was great and hold onto that belief no matter what) pretty much acknowledge it as Spielberg's worst movie (along with The Lost World: Jurassic Park), and with good reason.

Re: “Kid Stuff: Goosebumps and Pan

Are you retarted bro? Hook? That's like the most celebrated childhood adventure among anyone in the 80's. Put the pen down before you hurt yourself.

Re: “Crimson Peak: Seeing red

Actually this review is an incorrect over generalization. My husband and I loved this film having watched it hours ago and we are both very familiar with the works of charlotte bronte (jane eyre) among other classic works such as Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Bram Stokers Dracula. Granted this movie took a turn for the less paranormal when you reach the ending, however the gothic artistry and superb acting especially from wasikowska brings delight just in time for Halloween :) also...just a tip. may not want to put too many details in your review (spoiler alert) for those who did not have a chance to watch yet.

Re: “Bram Stoker's Dracula, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Hammer Films set among new home entertainment titles

I'm glad you lied the James Garner "Support Your___________" films Garner was always underrated as an actor/producer.... The supporting cast were excellent especially Jack Elam and Bruce Dern...

Re: “The Martian worth a close encounter

Thanks for writing, fanboy123. I liked Interstellar, but calling it one of the greatest movies EVER MADE (really? Up there with Citizen Kane, Modern Times, The Seventh Seal, Rashomon, The Maltese Falcon, etc.?) makes me believe your viewing habits are mostly limited to films released in the last 20 or so years. And explain to me how comparing movies from the same genre is "sensationaliz(ing) the topic"?

Re: “The Martian worth a close encounter

You have to be kidding me. Interstellar was one of the greatest movies ever made and yet you say it is worse than both The Martian and Gravity even though the scope of the movie is enormous. The films cover entirely different topics, but yet you seem to wish to sensationalize the topic at hand, which is whether The Martian is a good movie. I liked all of the movies, but Interstellar is by far the best without a shadow of a doubt. Even if you don't agree with me, the movies are not comparable. You are truly a delusional writer.

Great movie. As a Baby Boomer, I hope live long enough to see a Mars landing.
