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

Matt,
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.

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 20 Greatest Rock Films Ever Made

i've heard "Cocksucker Blues" will never b shown while the stones are together, even though i had seen it on the marquee at the Wiltern theater right after i moved down the street in 87, and on the menu at various revival houses for 1 time late night showings over the years.
i picked up a bootleg copy in the mid 80's. i guess the stones owed some record dictators 1 more song to fulfill a contract,in the early-mid 70's and the song is what they handed in. then someone followed them around with what looks like a super8 r maby16mm camera on a tour bout that time. they captured some of the most candid best back, side, and front stage footage ive ever seen. including a not so private jet plane flight, between shows i assume, of a groupie being handled by a roadie while mick an keith look on and keep the beat with maracas and tambourine. mostly black and white,with some color segments. a must see for any one 18 and up with even a passing interest in bloated 70 RnR. and if your a stones fan, well ya probably already have seen it. if not get on it.

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 Double-Oh Dossier

Thanks for writing, BondFan. As noted in both the article and an above comment, that list is in chronological order; otherwise, Tracy would have been #1. And M was admittedly a close miss.

Re: “The Double-Oh Dossier

How is M's death in Skyfall not listed. M, Vespar and Tracy should be 1-3.

Re: “Year in Review: Cinema soars in 2014

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.

Re: “Porn spoof titles, 1980s style

Very timely, Mr. Brunson! I still have well-worn VHS tapes of most of those if anyone wants dubs. And I was just telling someone how, if you glance at the Loafing URL www.clclt.com and don't look too closely, you'd swear it reads CLIT.COM... just sayin'...

Re: “The 20 Greatest Rock Films Ever Made

I think, the film about Johnny Cash was real good. The music was great!
