    I suppose this is true, but I've been more forgiving of it in other contexts. Boogie Nights (Goodfellas) and Magnolia (Short Cuts), for example, where I felt PTA brought something to those projects...

    My thoughts are similar to Weems's from earlier in the thread. The film is deeply derivative of The King of Comedy and Taxi Driver, which I suppose isn't a negative in itself, but I'm not sure there...

    Why didn't they just brand this as a stand-alone Harley Quinn movie and title it as such? That would've been easier to sell than whatever this is supposed to be.

    Being bound by some constraints (money, studio input, etc.) isn't always a bad thing. Sometimes those things encourage creativity. You look at the product that Netflix is putting out compared to...
  5. Poll: I think seeing many scenes, including the finale,...

    I think seeing many scenes, including the finale, as a form of wish fulfillment for the Cliff character is just a fun way to read the film, not so much as a defense of anything presented on screen. ...

    But what results from that setup is your projection of how you expect that scenario to play out. Not what is actually shown or said in the film. You see a wife nagging her husband while he has a...

    I disagree. The ambiguity is the point. It's a reference to old Hollywood rumor and intrigue. If the only point was to show us that Cliff was a killer, then Tarantino would've shown us the entire...

    The thing with Cliff’s wife is a callback to Natalie Wood. His wife’s name is even Natalie. I don’t know that it’s any more “probable” (based on what we saw) that Cliff murdered his wife than it is...

    This was wonderful.

    Nearly three hours? It felt like it ended too soon. I could’ve spent all day with Dalton, Cliff and Sharon. Tarantino’s catalogue is filled with a lot of great, big...

    Two pages deep and not one mention of Speed Racer?

    I'm going to be honest, young DeNiro looking like a cross between a celebrity wax figure and an old man who just discovered Instagram filters totally kills this for me.

    Best reunion thing ever? This was wonderful.

    I had the unique experience of watching the entire series for the first time over the last month or so and then jumping right into the film. I was...

    I know this movie is about Cheney, but I think it needed a different protagonist. Maybe a journalist or an idealistic staffer who Cheney could bounce off as a real moral antagonist. Not to say he...

    Iím surprised this got so many positive marks. Iím generally down for a fun yarn, but this material desperately needed a real craftsman in the directorís seat. This played like a slightly elevated...

    This was more entertaining than the lackluster reviews suggested, but I still wish it didn't exist. It diminishes the power of the two really good movies that came before it.

    There are very few other combinations of words that would get me more excited than that.

    Those are good points, though I think the "wait and see" approach would've made more sense if the North also bought in. Once Sansa broke ranks, I think Dorne and the Iron Islands could've said "us,...

    In marinating on the ending, the political aspects (the show's former strongpoint) really do not hold up well at all. The North being granted its independence breaks the whole thing apart. The show...

    Grey Worm had no reason to keep Jon alive, and it's impossible to believe that he wouldn't have killed him as soon as he discovered he killed Dany. Those are the type of details that weren't written...

    In broad strokes, I like how the story ended. It was always about the Starks. It was easy to lose some sight of that as other characters got elevated and grew prominent. But in the end, it was the...

    Didnít see that one, but, I mean, thatís Alexander Payne movie starring Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz and Kristin Wiig. I think most wouldíve expected that to work just based on the talent.
