Re: “The Mummy should be buried

These should be horror/monster movies. Not CGI infested action movies. Bring back the creepy sets featuring gothic castles, foggy cemeteries and cool looking monsters. We don't need a million explosions and cartoon looking effects with bad humor. Sometimes less is more!!

Re: “The Mummy should be buried

An excellent point, Rob. I had forgotten about their parting of ways. That probably explains a lot!

Re: “The Mummy should be buried

Cruise got rid of Paula Wagner a few years ago.. She was the only one who was capable of reeling him in. .. He has as you say finally succumbed to his "GOD" like Scientology based ego.

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

Thanks for writing, Denny. Haha; if you took from my blurb that I ever suggested the U.S. shouldn't defend against foreign invaders ... well, reading comprehension has never been the strong suit of many on the right. Now back to your p*ssy-grabbing, weapon-fondling, and whatever else you pseudo-patriotic Trump groupies like to do in your spare time. Cheers!

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

I love how someone with a page by the name of 'Creative Loafing' would denigrate the concept that citizens would actually defend the United States against invaders. Oh, the horror. Left to the tender mercies of Matty, we might as well just fold up and surrender to..... anyone.... such is the mindset of the All Powerful Anti-American Liberal circa 2017.

BTW, I love the term Conservative Chickenhawks.... since there is no need for an equivalent Liberal Chickenhawks.... simply because Liberal directly translates to Chickenhawk.

Re: “The Lovers marred by flaccid ending

I agree. The movie was OK until that ending, but then that went right along with how mercurial Mary and Michael were.

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

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.

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?

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.
