Re: “Alien: Covenant: Satisfying sci-fi

Great review until the end where you just had to throw your political slur in. Go Trump! Down with all the liberal mouth breathing Democrats!

Re: “'CL' Charlotte's Original Hometown Film Critic Opens Up About His Split Personality

It was good to read about you. I've read your columns for years and I often agree with you. You're right about La La Land, one of the best of last year. I wasn't crazy about Moonlight, Manchester By the Sea, or Fences.......and Song to Song, flat out fucking horrible.

Re: “'CL' Charlotte's Original Hometown Film Critic Opens Up About His Split Personality

Matt, as a fellow Loafing alumnus who was no stranger to pseudonyms (once in awhile, the Music Menu would have 3-4 items with dubious bylines, all from moi), I think I speak for all the alumni in saying we cheered your dual personality on with great glee, although Greg Ford was clearly far cooler and WAY more rock n roll than the other guy. And boy, did we ever have fun sticking it to the Observer as that Tom Cruise soap opera unfolded, eh?

Re: “The Promise not a keeper

Thanks for writing, Ana. I'm glad you enjoyed the movie, and I'm especially glad the proceeds went to good causes!

Re: “The Promise not a keeper

Despite almost all the critics giving this movie a low rating, I decided to watch this movie partly because all proceeds from the movie goes to various charities, which I happen to sponsor a couple. I don't know if it was due to the low expectation, but I loved the movie. The story was really good, the performances were great, the movie was captivating and on top of that I learnt a very important fact in history that has been ignored for a long time. Every single person in the movie theatre was glued to their seat till the last credit rolled. I really recommend this movie.

Re: “Fences, Kiss of Death, Red Dawn among new home entertainment titles

"The notion that any enemy would concern itself with Red State real estate is only slightly less believable than......."

I know right. What strategic value can possibly be gained from taking over a region that supplies 90% of the nation's food products. (beef, poultry, pork, wheat, corn, potatoes, and on and on)? But hey maybe everyone can live on wine and oranges.

Re: “Peyton Place, Rogue One, MST3K set among new home entertainment titles

The controversy going on in Lana Turner's personal life helped make Peyton Place I believe the second highest grossing film of 1957 behind The Bridge on the River Kwai.

Re: “Ghost in the Shell is a vibrant enhancement

I agree with Matt, I really enjoyed this movie. I was surprised to see such a large number of negative reviews it has received on sites like Rotten Tomatoes. Scarlett Johansson did an excellent job in the role of Major. She was surrounded by a diverse and talented cast. The subject matter was thought-provoking and will become more relevant as time passes and the technology depicted becomes reality. What does it mean to be human? What are we without our memories? Can we trust our memories? This may have slowed the pace of the action sequences but I am okay with that if the story is interesting. Every film can't be a Michael Bay type mindless explosion-fest with little to no plot. I hope Johansson has the opportunity to revisit this universe in a sequel or two so her character can explore these questions of humanity in a world where the biological and technological are so closely merged.

Re: “Logan: No Country For Old X-Men

I really enjoyed this movie. I think it's everything a comic book movie needs. I thought blood and violence fit perfectly. Especially this being Hugh Jackman's last role as Wolverine. It didn't feel forced to me. Although I do think Deadpool had a big impact on the R rating. I especially thought the little girl stole the film. She was excellent. As well as Jackman as always. I do agree with you about the villains being weak though. They could have done a better job with that.

Re: “Logan: No Country For Old X-Men

I enjoyed your review and thought it was spot on. Also, I really detested how Mangold inserted 'Shane' into this movie. He has zero idea what the film is about. I have no clue what kind of statement he was trying to make other than some broad stroke like 'a brand sticks' or whatever. George Stevens was a brilliant director and Mangold does him a huge disservice by placing Shane into this dreck.

Re: “Logan: No Country For Old X-Men

Update: I just found and read the Cnet critic's review. Our reviews are 100% different, starting with the fact that he loved the movie and I gave it a mixed review. So I guess you're saying I plagiarized from him (even though I saw the movie waaay back on February 16) just because we have similar headlines? Wow, with hundreds of critics reviewing the same movies every week -- yeah, I'm sure THAT coincidence has never happened before! Therefore, I was correct in my assumption that this was just a case of a fanboy blindly lashing out. But thanks for writing!

Re: “Logan: No Country For Old X-Men

Are you drunk, Antony Thrope, or just exhibiting the usual fanboy hurt? I have never plagiarized in my 25+ years as a critic and don't plan to start now. Give me specific examples of what I supposedly plagiarized before making Trump-like b.s. accusations.

Re: “Logan: No Country For Old X-Men

Cnet is widely read, and probably not the best place for you to plagerize your reviews from.

Re: “Passengers: A Space Idiocy

Oh my god...see, I didn't call him a stalker. I said that the thing people were saying in response to someone calling out major plot points in this movie as grossly mishandled sounded like what stalkers say to justify their actions: it's ok because I O.M.G love this person. That was my point. Everyone making apologies had the same rationale as that. They basically said that a man doing terrible things to a woman is fine if he thinks he really loves her.
Can we stop now? We're not going to change each other's minds and I'm tired of getting email notifications for this.
