“Bay simply ramps up the pace and explosion count from prior entries and layers on the Dinobots like so much icing on a shit cake.”
“Even people who otherwise have issues with the feminist movement pretty much universally agree that this is a freakin’ brilliant action movie and you should see it and see it again.”
“The movie gives us answers to exactly none of these questions. And here I thought the ending of Lost was a gyp.”
“The four TNG movies had some good ideas, but those were sadly overshadowed by the studio’s desire to turn TNG into something it wasn’t.”
“The moral of the story appears to be clear: God may not be dead, but if you’re not a Christian, you soon will be, and He’ll make sure you have the most horrible, painful death possible.”
“Both Maggie and Schwarzenegger’s performance show potential, even as their novice missteps prevent them from fulfilling it.”
“Unlike A Beautiful Mind, at least The Theory of Everything can admit that the husband and wife at the center of its story eventually got a divorce.”
“The movie also made me think about how much I would sacrifice for my own child, and the feelings of hopelessness that would arise from not being able to do everything I want for my family.”
“Just imagine a standup comic telling you the same joke over and over for 105 minutes just to make sure you got it, and you’ll get a pretty good idea of what this movie is like.”
Lifetime has just announced an unauthorized behind-the-scenes "Full House" movie, and we wish we were joking, but no. But if it's going to happen--and it is--then why not join in on the fun? Here are our picks for the best possible cast.
“It’s not the nonexistent feelings of a fictional woman that’s drawing ire, it’s that two real men are revealing their real (and not so great) attitudes towards women.”
“‘More of the same’, though I’d still say it was better overall than the previous Avengers movie and trumps it on most levels.”
“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.”
“It has the effect of reminding us while we’re watching a tightly-plotted crime drama that there is in fact a billionaire dressed up as a giant bat who refuses to use guns, fights criminals who have guns, and yet routinely emerges unscathed.”
“I wonder if it ever crossed Rodriguez’s mind that the grainy film and ‘missing reel’ scenes of such movies were not put in there intentionally.”
“While a lot of people will see it due to all the awards and accolades it received in the last year, this is primarily a film made by a cinephile for cinephiles.”
“Granted, it’s far, far superior to the last meta-Bond film they tried (that would be Die Another Day), but it doesn’t have much of an identity of its own.”
“Insomnia isn’t perhaps the movie many hoped for following Memento; It’s a pretty low-key, minor effort compared to the complex, large-scale films Nolan would go on to make.”
“Birdman may not be everything it’s been hyped to be, and it may not even be remembered as groundbreaking cinema—mostly because it’s not.”
“There are times when it feels like the characters in The Giver are really just living in a slightly more authoritarian Disneyworld.”
