Heh, sounds like CG44 enjoys molesting women!
"By the end, it becomes apparent that this has basically been a dude-bro movie about a stunted man-boy with both a penchant for scatological situations and a firm belief that harassing uninterested women is his God-given right as an American male."
Where did you even come up with the last part? What? I'm guessing you are, in fact, the dude-bro and have never dealt with real depression or loneliness. Must be nice in that ivory tower.
It worked for The Jungle Book though.
Probably won't be seeing this based on your review. How could they make a Tarzan film with no live animals? What a disappointment....
Matt you did good on Shallows, it wasn't award winner but did good job keepng your eyes glued to screen

Why was 8
No way this compares to the original, I was laughing through half of it! Maybe it was the British accents, I don't know but it didn't get scary till almost the end! It was very disappointing.
The Tea Party originated in 2007 under the banner of the Ron Paul presidential campaign.
damn I was looking forward to a solid review on this one! :)
Typical pan... Blah blah blah. Congratulations, you're a critic...
Dick: So in just a couple of lines, you manage to attack gays, overweight people and "libtards" and defend Sarah Palin and Dirty Grandpa. Clearly an intellectual giant in our midst! Thanks for writing!
really? you're such a partisan libard that u had to bring Sarah Palin into this discussion for no reason? For the record, that's EXACTLY why they mocked Queen Latifah, because she's overweight. I mock fat people. Oh Lighten up. It was Funny. I make Fun of gays too. They are sinners.
I think CL's movie reviews are awesome! I wish I was smart enough to be a writer.
Which film if you remember did he say he'd rather sit through Cancer treatments than watch this film?
Ha! My favorite Rex Reedism: "BLUE VELVET should score high with the kind of sickos who like to smell dirty socks and pull the wings off butterflies, but there's nothing here for sane audiences." :D
Thanks for writing, Lance. Nothing wrong with "manly and macho" movies; check out CHATO'S LAND and THUNDERBOLT AND LIGHTFOOT, both positively reviewed in this same column.
My favorite Rex Reed bit of vitriol was when he described Hal Needham's lack of skill behind the camera saying "Hal Needham couldn't direct traffic".
I guess if the revenant were a musical it would get a better review.
So you don't like The Revenant because it's too manly and macho? What do you expect in this time period? It was a brutal time and brutal setting. I don't understand why you think it has to make some sort of statement to be this way. It's just the way it was back then. Very realistic in my opinion. And probably the best performance by Dicaprio. I'm not saying it was the best picture of the year. But certainly better than 2 1/2 stars.
