The greatest movie of all time?
on Monday, December 31, 2012
The British magazine Sight & Sound released its 2012 Critics' Top Ten Poll, and
for the first time since 1962, Citizen Kane is not the greatest movie ever. Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo now tops the list, but does it deserve that honor? And while we're at it, did Citizen Kane deserve that honor in the first place? And is it really possible to call any movie the greatest movie of all time?
Kick-Ass 2 (2013)
“The bad news is Kick-Ass 2 isn’t as good as Kick-Ass. There are certain key elements of awesome from the first movie that are absent this time around, and without them there’s just no way to completely recapture the magic. The good news is that those voids have been filled by not-quite-as-awesome-but-still-pretty-awesome new stuff.”Movie 43 (2013) / Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013)
“Between this, Snow White and the Huntsman, and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, it appears the ‘sounds like a joke but is actually a real movie’ movie is officially a real genre.”Why we want Batman to beat Superman
“There’s something almost fetishistic about the way people would love to see the Dark Knight take the Man of Steel down a peg or two.”The Flash’s sexist “don’t tell the girlfriend” rule
“Every man in Iris’s life is lying to her. Her boyfriend, her best friend, and her father. This is beyond mere protectiveness: this is patronizing mistrust.”Krrish 3 (2013)
“And a Silver Age Superman story this is, right down to the core. At less than a quarter of the budget, Krrish 3 satisfies in ways Man of Steel utterly failed to do.”Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013)
“It's a film which should be notable because, if nothing else, it’s the first time I’ve seen someone take the idea of the audience rooting for the killer to its logical extreme. They actually manage to frame the story so that the cannibals are the lesser of two evils.”
