Re: “Kid Stuff: Goosebumps and Pan

Thanks for writing, PanFan. Nope, not "retarted." That would be quite a feat for Hook to be "the most celebrated childhood adventure among anyone in the 80's," considering it didn't come out until the 1990s. Better step away from the keyboard before YOU hurt yourself.

No, discerning film fans (not just people who saw it as a kid and thought it was great and hold onto that belief no matter what) pretty much acknowledge it as Spielberg's worst movie (along with The Lost World: Jurassic Park), and with good reason.

Re: “Kid Stuff: Goosebumps and Pan

Are you retarted bro? Hook? That's like the most celebrated childhood adventure among anyone in the 80's. Put the pen down before you hurt yourself.

Re: “Crimson Peak: Seeing red

Actually this review is an incorrect over generalization. My husband and I loved this film having watched it hours ago and we are both very familiar with the works of charlotte bronte (jane eyre) among other classic works such as Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Bram Stokers Dracula. Granted this movie took a turn for the less paranormal when you reach the ending, however the gothic artistry and superb acting especially from wasikowska brings delight just in time for Halloween :) also...just a tip. ..you may not want to put too many details in your review (spoiler alert) for those who did not have a chance to watch yet.

Re: “Bram Stoker's Dracula, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Hammer Films set among new home entertainment titles

I'm glad you lied the James Garner "Support Your___________" films Garner was always underrated as an actor/producer.... The supporting cast were excellent especially Jack Elam and Bruce Dern...

Re: “The Martian worth a close encounter

Thanks for writing, fanboy123. I liked Interstellar, but calling it one of the greatest movies EVER MADE (really? Up there with Citizen Kane, Modern Times, The Seventh Seal, Rashomon, The Maltese Falcon, etc.?) makes me believe your viewing habits are mostly limited to films released in the last 20 or so years. And explain to me how comparing movies from the same genre is "sensationaliz(ing) the topic"?

Re: “The Martian worth a close encounter

You have to be kidding me. Interstellar was one of the greatest movies ever made and yet you say it is worse than both The Martian and Gravity even though the scope of the movie is enormous. The films cover entirely different topics, but yet you seem to wish to sensationalize the topic at hand, which is whether The Martian is a good movie. I liked all of the movies, but Interstellar is by far the best without a shadow of a doubt. Even if you don't agree with me, the movies are not comparable. You are truly a delusional writer.

Great movie. As a Baby Boomer, I hope live long enough to see a Mars landing.

Re: “The Martian worth a close encounter

I enjoyed the movie but the book was much better. Most of the casting was very good except for Jessica Chastain. She was weak and boring in this role.

Re: “At Close Range, Spy, Cannon Films documentary among new home entertainment titles

On ENTOURAGE, I never understood how Adrian Grenier and Kevin Connolly ever had a career in Hollywood.. To describe them as medicore actors insults mediocrity. It was painful to watch...

Re: “At Close Range, Spy, Cannon Films documentary among new home entertainment titles

I saw Murder, My Sweet when I was a teenager.. I only knew Dick Powell as a song and dance man before this.. I discovered later he was a shrewd business man who along with Charles Boyer, David Niven and Ida Lupino started Four Star Productions which was responsible for a lot of successful series in late 50's and 60's.. Burke's Law, The Rifleman, The Rogues, Big Valley and Dick Powell Theater.

In real life Powell was a compulsive womanizer, a major alcoholic and huge right wing nutbag in same league as John Wayne, whom he directed in the piece of shit "The Conqueror"... Powell contracted Cancer like everyone else did on that film and passed away in 1964...

Re: “At Close Range, Spy, Cannon Films documentary among new home entertainment titles

I loved the documentary about Cannon Films... To be politically incorrect for a moment.. They were not shrewd Israeli film makers, they were almost stereo typical money grubbing Jews. Mel Gibson refused to have anything to do with them in early 80's which was a true story..

I also loved that little dig the producers of the documentary made saying how Golan/Globus never attended lavish Hollywood parties.. The real reason being they were never, never invited and no one wanted any association with them.

Re: “The Visit: Something old, something ew

Well, at least you all have good taste then ;-)
Most of MNS's movies are huge disappointments, the trailer cutter's should be put in jail. But thought this was pretty good. What was your opinion of 'Devil'?

Re: “The Visit: Something old, something ew

Your review of this movie, and your assessment of the New England Patriots, are both wrong. But, no one cares what you think, anyhow.

Re: “Burn, Witch, Burn, The Last American Virgin, Mad Max: Fury Road among new home entertainment titles

Thanks for writing, Rob. The studio was indeed worried about how the film would play in the South, but it ended up being a smash here just like everywhere else in the country. Various sources (including IMDb) state that "This film was instrumental in largely ending the marketing consideration of how films featuring African-American characters and themes were assumed to be likely rejected by mainstream audiences in the Southern States of the USA. In that regard, the film was such a major widespread success throughout the entire USA, including the South, that the marketing factor would never again be considered a major problem for any major film release."

Re: “Burn, Witch, Burn, The Last American Virgin, Mad Max: Fury Road among new home entertainment titles

Could you imagine the reaction from the South when Guess Who's Coming to Dinner received when it was released? I wonder how it did money wise here. I know it was one of the top 5 grossing films of the year elsewhere.
