Re: “Zootopia: Animal planet

Love to see a review of a movie about diversity filled with hatred and vitriol directed at a group you don't like. Just an editorial note for the future: self righteous bigotry is an ugly thing.

Re: “Zootopia: Animal planet

I think it is great that you begin the discussion of a movie built around diversity by naming an entire group as morons. Self righteous bigotry is so unbecoming.

Love how this tool brings politics into a review of a kids movie.

Re: “Zootopia: Animal planet

Loved the movie, and the subtext. Also, I'm a right-wing moron.

Re: “Risen: Keeping the faith

Don't you have to have a certain skill level to become a movie reviewer. Isn't there any type of test? All I can say is that the movie was very entertaining, Joseph Fiennes played his role of the fictional character Clavius very well, the supporting cast was good and there were even a few comedic elements woven into the story. Go watch it. You'll enjoy it.

Re: “Risen: Keeping the faith

Uh oh, sounds like someone was offended that his hero Rush was lambasted. And shouldn't you have been at church Sunday morning instead of playing on the Internet?

Re: “Risen: Keeping the faith

I don't know how you manage to include references to Rush Limbaugh in a review about a movie that illustrates something that happened two thousand years ago but . . . oh wait . . . OF COURSE I do.

Next time, try to REVIEW THE MOVIE instead of upchucking your empty political opinion during a time when you're supposed to be "doing your job" as a "Professional Movie Watcher" . . . which is ludicrous at best.

Re: “The Revenant: The Bear Necessities

Thirty minutes of story (less than most single episodes of '60's and 70's TV westerns), an hour of DiCaprio grunting and groaning, all wrapped around an insult to both whites and Native Americans in history. The whites are portrayed mostly as cruel and greedy and the Indians as mostly insensible and murdering; barbarians all. Ah, but attention to detail as DiCaprio had to carefully remove all his cloths after gutting his horse and then laying inside the belly. Little concern for the physical impossibilty of so many of the situations, the bear mauling but no antibiotics or treatment, the swimming in icy waters, no fire in winter. Reminiscent of the mindlessness of Apocalypto.

Re: “The Oscar Noms: All Sound and Fury

I couldn't disagree more; Tom Hardy's performance as Fitzgerald was spectacular and he's fully deserving of the nomination. One of the best actors in the business.

Re: “The Revenant: The Bear Necessities

Brilliantly shot - makes the viewer feel You're there. Going to see it again with a crew. Movie is liong but still Resonates. In fact, Not sure, if some reviewers a tually watched Revenant given the utter repellant tone.

Re: “The Revenant: The Bear Necessities

Personally, I couldn't agree more with this review. Regardless of the fact that this was a beautifully shot, and exceptionally well made film, it was also painfully too long, and frankly pretty boring. I equate this to "all sizzle, no steak." But of course, this is just my opinion, and is in no way intended to provoke or enrage any of the tough guys in the comments section.

Re: “The Revenant: The Bear Necessities

Thanks for writing, everyone -- even Jessey with his unsettling fascination with flatulence. Wow, looks like that Golden Globe win emboldened heretofore meek fanboys to come out in full force!

Re: “The Revenant: The Bear Necessities

Haven't seen it yet, but I want to. It looks really good. Also I happen to like Mel Gibson's so-called snuff films THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST and APOCALYPTO. Those were viscerally powerful films. Oh yeah it won the Golden Globe Award for Best Picture (Drama) by the way.

Re: “The Revenant: The Bear Necessities

I gave the "The Revenant"4 Stars and consider it a masterpiece. Leo is an amazing actor and I truly believe when it's all said and done he will go down as the greatest of all time. When you watch his performances it's as if you're witnessing history and live events as they are actually being played out. Leo transforms into the character like no other. He's due for about five Oscars by now; this year it's going to impossible for voters to ignore him.

Re: “The Revenant: The Bear Necessities

Pretentious nonsense from a critic trying too hard ; Matt Brunson is a desperate writer looking for attention in all the wrong ways. In his attempt to sound more refined and knowledgeable, he loses all credibility as a writer and a critic. One can only assume that his audience consists of haughty losers who look down their nose while smelling their own flatulence.

Re: “The Revenant: The Bear Necessities

Silly review the writer lost me when he wrote "Like Wolf, both are stylistic studies in overkill, and both serve as masturbatory material for a segment of American males who clutch them like crucifixes in an attempt to ward off the encroaching new world order that they feel downgrades machismo and manliness."

Sounds like writer is threatened by the American male. that comment has very little to do with the movie and more to do with his own projections.

Re: “The Revenant: The Bear Necessities

Love this review! So many witty burns to savor on the tongue: "stylistic studies in overkill...clutch them like crucifixes in an attempt to ward off the encroaching new world order...Mel Gibson's garish snuff films...like those cute pets in The Incredible Journey,...injecting elements of mysticism (apparently a requirement for any director making a movie...he's committed to his grunts, groans and growls, but then again, so was Charles Bronson." Anyone who can work both the madness of Mel Gibson and the cuteness of Incredible Journey into one review is my hero.

Re: “The Revenant: The Bear Necessities

Loved it. Unlike those who are threatened by it and feel lesser for it. Find a safe space and grab a coloring book instead.

Uh, "...stylistic studies in overkill, and both serve as masturbatory material for a segment of American males who clutch them like crucifixes in an attempt to ward off the encroaching new world order that they feel downgrades machismo and manliness..." Say what? Dude, that schtick was cutting edge, like, eight years ago.
