    Not saying that any of it is well-executed from a logic standpoint, but I believe that is what the film was trying to sell. Fair point about it not making sense to continue after she’s been...

    There is no “DNC” or “establishment” at play. You have a single moderate candidate who finally got on level ground with the liberal candidate and blew him up. So far, Sanders has shown no ability...

    He does have a motive.

    If the brother sets her up for a crime, she returns her $5 million inheritance to the trust, of which her brother is surely a beneficiary. Making her look insane in the...

    I mean, all you have to do is pay attention to what the Republicans are saying about the Democrats. Trump and the GOP are openly campaigning for Bernie at this point, while eviscerating any moderate...

    No, the architect of the home never lived down there. He built the bunker in the event of a North Korean missile attack. His only connection to the plot is that that original housemaid used to work...

    The architect is a different man, who the original housekeeper previously worked for and reveres. Separately, the housekeeper's husband has fallen into debt and starts living beneath the mansion...

    Joker spends 80% of its run time posturing -- stealing its tone wholesale from Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy -- for no reason but to manipulate you into believing it's doing something important....

    Joker is this year's Green Book/Vice. Artless stories dressed up by comedy directors who play pretend auteurs with studio resources. This is not visionary work; it's painting by numbers. Phillips...

    Shrug.

    I liked it well enough. Not as relevatory from a cinematic aspect as The Force Awakens but certainly watchable and a competent closure of storylines. Maybe Iím grading on a curve, because...

    This had no atmosphere whatsoever. It felt neither tense enough nor psychedelic enough. Just a lot of VFX money wasted on cheesy looking creatures. Huge drop-off in filmmaking quality from the...

    I don’t know. I think Irish may be onto something. It’s not clear that Bay can even put together a watchable movie without the aid of a producer who has a grasp of basic story. This is consistent...

    I turned it off after 40 minutes. I was in the mood for something dumb and mindless, not something boring and indecipherably edited.

    It’s a solid yarn. No more, no less. This is exactly the type of movie that earns a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. Plot-driven, with safe and inconsequential content. Some silly allusions to Trump that...

    I thought this was pretty masterfully done by the involved parties. For me, it's far and away the best thing Baumbach has done to date. I've enjoyed several of his movies, but this is the first one...

    The show looks damn good, but this is not going hold audiences by simply relying on obscenely expensive set pieces. The second episode was a waste of time. Is this show going to have any...

    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...

    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...
