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."
Dude be careful, from what I've heard and seen locally there a lot of hate filled right wing nut bags who act like this film is gospel especially in North/South Carolina.

The One I Love
I'm a muso and Almost Famous along with Eddie and Cruisers, they are very accurate movies and present well to the music industry, c'mon seriously, dam good flicks......excellent viewing.
Long live Eddie and the Beaver Brown Band!!!!
I haven't decided on my top films this year but definitely included would be "Locke". I also liked "Nightcrawler", "Magic in the Moonlight" and "Guardians of the Galaxy". Oh yeah and “Fury” with Brad Pitt.
Bypassed EVERY male in Hollywood? You are seriously saying that anyone in Hollywood would have been better than JOHNNY DEPP? It's a tiny role for God's sake, why give him crap for it? He did just fine and played it the way it should be played. Ugh.
"an actor who has devolved into a mugging caricature no longer capable of surprising or even engaging us."
Us? Speak for yourself please. It's sad that he makes it look so easy.
I'm glad you liked this... This was the one film I have been wanting and am excited to see.. I know one day there will be Oscar on the mantle of Benedict Cumberbatch.
Um, I guess for the same reason most critics of all races are panning it: They didn't think it was any good.
The disconnect between what I'm clearly stating and what's being distorted has proven to be VERY interesting.
