I'd better look into getting glasses. On quick glance, I swore the headline read "...Adaline needs more masturbation."
I've gotta agree, this is too much a pretend "Feel Good" attempt at a story & less about what it ever was intended to be or could've been. It's "Fiction derived from truth", for the sake of uneven & gratuitous entertainment. Definitely NOT worth paying to see. IF one is going to painfully struggle through this movie, I'd advice that you wait for it to be released on either online, DVD or "free" Movie Channels.
"Jenison decides that Vermeer employed a camera obscura..and sets about using similar techniques and circumstances"
I don't think you even watched the entire movie.
Tom Whalen: Yes, my opinion of horror titles is "broadly contempuous [sic] and dismissive." That's why THIS VERY COLUMN includes a RAVE review for a horror film (BLACK SUNDAY). Insert eye roll here.
Why do you bother reviewing horror titles when you opinion of them is so broadly contempuous and dismissive?
I didn't think you could make a bad submarine movie until I saw K19: The Widowmaker. It's sad to see Neeson in the movies he's done in the last couple years.
I gave up on Ford when they made the 4th Indiana Jones movie. There's a reason they call it a trilogy...
Let's be honest Valerie Perrine was a heterosexual male guilty pleasure... She was all woman in an era where women were adored not these vapid stupid twit girls who are interchangeable and a dime a dozen on todays movie screen.
LENNY was a film I saw on VHS when I was 20 years old.. After reading your review which I agree with makes me realize this is another film hey could not make today or do it justice the way it would deserve... It would probably star Johnny Depp.
To Sir with Love is on of my favorite films.. 1967 I agree was a banner year for Sidney Poitier. He did three films back to back to back that today would be impossible to top.
District 9 is the one trick - the pony's name is Blomkamp.
Barbara Steele was so hot in her day.....
All hail the wars that Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and John Kerry voted for. Die savages!
I love all your reviews, Matt, but this one was the absolute best. A sexually charged movie where the male actor demands his penis not be shown and the female actor is constantly naked? Yep, that's America alright.
Nice review; I am finding that the women shrieking with joy of love for this film are the 16YOs who also loved the badly written books. I agree with your comments.
This wasn't that bad a movie, I didn't walk out on it
I really adored Love is Strange... Pork Chop Hill in spite of your very good review I feel is underrated. (Not by you) I felt it had a lot more depth that it was given credit for.
Thanks for writing. Actually, a Hamilton Geyser-approved comedy sounds like the least funny thing I could imagine. Perhaps your time would be better served learning to treat women as equals rather than advancing the idiotic, dangerous and misguided MRA movement?
An SJW approved comedy sounds like the least funny thing I could imagine. Perhaps your time would be better served critiquing movies rather than railing against the evil patriarchy?
I just got back from screening “American Sniper” and gave it 4 Stars. I consider it one of the great war films of all time right up there with “Apocalypse Now” and “Saving Private Ryan”. After seeing this picture Clint Eastwood very well may have solidified himself as the greatest war film director of all time. Ironic considering he himself spent very little time in the military. This is Eastwood’s best picture to date and that’s saying a lot considering “The Bridges of Madison County” is one of my Top 10 favorite films. Unbelievably accurate, authentic and a job well done. If you aren’t emotionally moved after seeing this picture something is wrong with you.
Only in Murica can the story of a hate-filled psychopathic mass murderer be turned into a "hero."
