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

I'm a liberal and a militant leftist and I enjoyed Red Dawn when it came out and I enjoy it now. And the reason you would

Re: “Black Panther, Die Hard, It's Alive Trilogy among new home entertainment titles

I always thouht Denzel Washington deserved an oscar nod for his performance in Philadelphia. But Die Hard with a Vengeance is far from "So So". That was the best of all the sequels. 2 just tried too much to be like the original. However I still enjoy watching it. To me. Live Free was so so. That last one was shit. I'm sure everyone can agree on that.

Re: “Everybody into the Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2 can be called a film that needs each moment of your complete attention, straight through to the post-credits scene that is inspired- and it completely merits it.

Re: “Cowboy, The Peanuts Movie, Room among new home entertainment titles

Thanks for writing, Titus. Admittedly, I saw the film theatrically back in the day as a teenager and didn't care for it then, either. Then again, I can't recall if there was anybody else in attendance, so it's possible it was basically the same as being viewed alone at home. :) But I agree about Gene Kelly: Watching him dance is always one of life's great pleasures.

Cheers!

Re: “Cowboy, The Peanuts Movie, Room among new home entertainment titles

I'm so sad to see you weren't into Xanadu. It's certainly a weird one and probably doesn't do well being viewed alone at home. My guess is that's why it has its cult following because when you see it on the big screen surrounded by people all buying into the ridiculousness, it can hit ya kinda hard. Plus, the look on Gene Kelly's face when he's dancing makes you just fall in love with him. So genuinely happy to be doing what he's doing. We should all be so lucky.

Re: “A Wrinkle in Time Misses Who, What and Why

That's a shame. I LOVED Wrinkle and a Swiftly Tilting Planet as a kid, but the movie trailers left me a little cold. Still seeing it though.

Re: “Black Panther springs into action

Thanks for writing, Tylyn Hyshaw. You are absolutely right. No one who wants to see a certain movie is going to let one critic's review (and a positive one, at that!) deter him, meaning M.G. never had the slightest intention of seeing the film in the first place. As for N.M. Hill, I gave many reasons throughout the review as to why the movie was good, but, predictably, he solely moaned over the film having a black cast and black director. Fortunately, with its record-setting weekend gross, this fine picture doesn't need any help from those who object to its very existence!

Re: “Black Panther springs into action

M.G if you let a critic who doesn't like Trump or his supporters stop you from seeing a movie you really want to see, then maybe you never planned on see it in the theaters in the first place. That's your right, but don't blame a critic that has nothing to do with the film who gave it a good review.

Re: “Black Panther springs into action

Mr. Brunson, I am a retired Marine Officer who now does government affairs in DC for multiple development sectors, including the movie theater sector. I also happen to have two graduate degrees, have circumnavigated the globe twice, have lived abroad (prior to the military) and experienced dozens of world cultures first-hand. I also happen to be a Trump supporter. I am NOT a white supremacists, a mouth-breathing simpleton or any other derogatory name to wish to throw around carelessly from your comfortable little bubble of a world. Because I was so offended by your statements (and frustrated by your complete ignorance of the fact you are epitomizing everything you disdain), I didn't even finish your review. I have been looking forward to seeing this movie and taking my children (yes, white children). Now I may wait and when asked why I did not see it in the theaters, I will point to you. You foolish little child.

Re: “Black Panther springs into action

So, like most liberals, communist, racists and Democrats - or am I being ridiculously redundant and repetitive here by actually separating the four factions? - You give the movie a high rating based on nothing other than the fact that it has a black director and a predominately black cast.

Re: “Call Me by Your Name: That's Amore

Thanks for writing, Wendy. Agreed; I felt it was important to mention the Perlman family's Jewish roots, as that plays a major role in the film. And I don't know about the mainstream media, but I've been seeing many articles from alternative sites detailing how CMBYN is as much a breakthrough Jewish film as a breakthrough LGBTQ film.

Re: “Call Me by Your Name: That's Amore

BTW, did you know that Timothe Chalamet is Jewish? His mother, who is American, is Jewish.

I mention this because the mainstream media is pathologically obsessed with exactly only one half of his background, French, and categorically refuses to mention his other half, Jewish. Even though his character in this movie isn't French - he's Jewish, and spends half the movie wearing a Star of David.

So if not now, when? In fact, Call Me By Your Name is the rare major film where three actors of Jewish heritage (Chalamet, Hammer, Stuhlbarg), play Jewish characters in the leads.

Re: “The Birth of a Nation: Not Black and White

Historical truth: American slaveholders treated their negroes (and that is almost always the word they used) not as valuable property, but as useful property. Slaves were valuable only so long as they remained useful. While a healthy young woman might be worth almost as much as the house she was bought to take care of, her value would decline greatly with age and attitude. A disrespectful old woman had almost no value - in one case I've read the original records of, the old woman was sold for less than 1% of her original purchase price; an old cow sold at the same auction for about 9 times more than her.

"that riveting Trade Federation chat that opens The Phantom Menace, though"

You needed that chat to set the plot table for the 3 prequels.

Re: “Towering performance elevates Downsizing

THANK YOU for putting Hong Chau front and center! The film sprawled, as most films over two hours do. Without her spiky presence, and her role as Matt Damon's conscience, the movie would have been incomprehensible.
