My question, during my first viewing of The Ring, was: What if you didn’t answer the phone after viewing the tape? Would they call back? What if you hadn’t paid the bill and your phone was disconnected? If the caller left a message on voice mail, would it still count and what if you didn’t check your messages?

I read the piece, and looking at him spread his relentless positivity and love on the show, you’d never think he’d gone through such hardship and dark times in the past. It makes the way he turned his life around all the more impressive. He says his message with the book is that no one is ever too broken to be fixed. Read more

Yeah. She doesn’t come off much better than Caroline. All in all, it just sounds like two self-absorbed young women making poor choices. I’m not sure what all the hype is about here.

The Ghost in the Shell anime series once talked about a Stand Alone Complex. This was something that they defined as, "a copy without an original." This series came out in 2002, and here we are...

“the town also recently renamed “an unmarked dirt roadway” near the ball “Weird Alley,” which is just delightful”

Someone worked hard to make that happen and I’m proud of them.

Growing up in NOLA, Cash Money was ubiquitous, and this article is speaking deep to my nostalgia in a way that few other 90's articles can. I’ve seen Juvenile and Mannie Fresh perform live SO MANY TIMES, and the day that I ran into Birdman at Walgreens is still seared into my memory as one of the great moments of my Read more

You can also update the Anne Francis part. Anne Francis was a part of the “Get Christy Love” discussion in Reservoir Dogs. Someone (Mr Orange, I believe) mistakenly thinks Anne Francis played Christy Love, but he is quickly reminded that Francis played Honey West. And Mr Pink rather humorously adds that “Anne Francis Read more

I’ve been looking forward to this. Lately I’m burned out on sci-fi/superhero movies. Don’t worry...that won’t last! But have been wanting something different.

I ❤️ Katie!! I read your post, then watched. Glad I got to see this with a fresh perspective and no spoilers. Would not have known about the doc w/out your post. Gracias.

After reading the comments, I feel like this review needs to link to a “Spoiler Space” post where people can discuss the “new context” this documentary provides in detail so people stop getting hung up on why you didn’t lay out the entire documentary in this review. I’m glad you didn’t spoil it though... it seems like Read more

“Also, it’s not sexist that I think that manipulative hussy wanted to kill the poor boy all along. Just look at her smug bitch face!”

ITT: I can’t believe you didn’t totally spoil a documentary in a pre-release review.

1:34 PM

Whatever arguments the doc makes could probably be explained in a paragraph or two, but doing so would mean you have no reason to watch the thing. This reviewer is being loyal to the filmmakers by telling you that it “makes some really good points” without elaborating on those points at all. Read more

What’s not to love? De Palma is having a blast with the camera, the performances are a ton of fun (Gerrit Graham is so great as Beef), and most of all, Paul Williams songs are top notch. One of my all time favorite soundtracks and movies. It’s just fun.
