I think the opposite. Without all the visual splendor around them, I think we’d have started to notice that those characters are all a little flat. In concert with their surroundings, though, they are all delightful. Read more

Lukewarm take: It was the whole package of cast, crew, visual presentation, mythology, and zeitgeist, which is impossible to recapture.

You know, it’s not the way I would have gone with Slimer but I can kind of see it.

Well, everyone knows Atlas shrugged at the battle of Galt’s Gulch. What this new trilogy presupposes is...maybe he didn’t?

There’s no place for SJWs in a film series about hardscrabble heroes from all races and walks of life banding together to fight against a homogenous fascist dictatorship!

Something about the phrase “the next Star Wars trilogy” just makes me so, so tired.

I never bought that either. Just look at the garbage Johnson was making before he joined the F&F team and you’ll see what kind of a box office draw he was at the time. This dude was in The fucking Tooth Fairy the year before Fast Five came out. If anything, the franchise saved him.

Hey, he’s just a Hollywood screenwriter. You can’t expect him to know anything about movies.

The answer to any question that begins with “Does Trump not understand...?” is “Of fucking course Trump doesn’t understand.”

You gotta hand it to Marvel: They have a pretty solid track record of casting people who seem to embody their characters. Downey Jr IS Iron Man. Evans IS Captain America. Hemsworth IS Thor. And from the looks of it, this kid IS Spider-Man. And that’s great. They’re not just actors playing roles—they’re ambassadors for Read more

I saw Toy Story 1 in the theater because it was a fun light show to get high and gawk at, but I tried watching it again maybe 15 years later with all the novelty gone and absolutely hated it. Now that the visuals aren’t very impressive, all you’re left with is an incredibly mean-spirited story about total assholes who Read more

Was Chronicle really that successful? I thought it was a modest hit, at best. I guess it must have been cheap enough to be really profitable. That buys you a few second chances, I suppose. Read more

I am not defending Max Landis here (an overrated shithead whose movies are just barely superficially clever enough for me to not hate them, despite the fact that, 15 years later, his best work remains “Deer Woman”) but it’s always weird to me how many people think his dad—who barely works anymore, hasn’t gotten a Read more

This is great news. Every time a soulless, corpse-humping, nostalgia-bait franchise revival dies at the box office, an angel gets his wings.

My God. What if the nation’s poetry workshops are next? There’ll be no stopping them!

With all the praise America’s educators have been getting lately, I think it’s important to every now and again remind ourselves that the vast majority of them are total garbage and shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near an impressionable youth. This young lady is doing the Lord’s work.

There are few words that bum me out more than “erotic.” It makes me think of predatory photographers and Eurotrash swingers with no shame. Maybe this film will be the thing that finally causes it to be retired.
