If you're looking for "I Spys," dating or LTRs, this is your scene.
If you're looking for full-on kink or group play, you'll get what you need here.
Greater length? Please, spare me. The movie sucked. Give it one star for the scary nun. Simple minded religionists of the Michelle Bachman variety will like it.
Yeah, what he said. Essentially.
Actually, I think you have missed it, and no, "virtually" or "essentially" would not work in this context. The author took pains to point out that the location of the film was "sun drenched" throughout the review. Re-read the passage which has so offended you as "all of the emotions which the actress communicated were in a location which was very sunny...literally.", and you will see that not only is it an accurate use of the word, but in fact it is a play on words which clearly went over your head. Figuratively.
On a side note; several studies have shown that people who singularly focus on grammatical error correction (real or perceived) as their "contribution" to a discussion or review, are not often considered a lot of fun to be with. Literally.
It's Olivia Colman - I think you're thinking of Sophie, her character on Peep Show :)
"That doesn't hinder an actress of Swinton's prowess from communicating every emotion under the sun. Literally."
Here is yet another instance of the tedious misuse and over-employment of the word "literally." Its true meaning has been wholly corrupted, as writers ignore or misunderstand its actual denotation.
Wouldn't "virtually" or "essentially" be a much better word choice, here?
Wow, lots of Larry Crowne fans out there! Which is great. This is America. But Robert, I wouldn't want you worrying about my credibility as a critic simply because I found it tedious and trite. You might care to read Roger Ebert's review of the film: http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/larry-cr… He said pretty much the same thing I did in mine. And I think we can all agree he was a fairly credible critic. What with the Pulitzer, etc.
I agree with the other comment. Larry Crowne is a terrific movie, and you saying otherwise makes me question your credibility as a film critic.
Downs? LARRY CROWNE? You gotta be kidding.
Quaint hamlets? Do you know ANYTHING about Belfast in the 70s?
Jeez, man, buy a history book.
Miles Ahead is certainly not a run-of-the-mill biopic. Be thankful for that. If Cheadle hasn't invented some original film vocabulary for this movie, he has definitely employed some creative, avant-garde techniques to tell an original story about the tortured genius that rings true and gets inside his soul. With some very minor flaws by a first-time director, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. ***1/2
When journalist Dahr Jamail says, "If you want to see a really compelling movie....don't miss this one...director/writer Jeff Nichols is in his own league...:" I listen.
I'm not sure "doing a passable impression" rises to the level of panning Hiddleston's performance but you're certainly on the money with regard to Hank3's bitterness about the film's creators not reaching out to him in any way. I'd love to hear what you think once you see the film (keep a yawn count, would you?). I'm hoping to have better biopic luck this weekend with Born to Be Blue.
To be fair, Hank III made those comments about the actor long before the movie had come out (I'd read them elsewhere back in the early fall). Presumably, now that it's out, he hasn't bothered to see the movie at all. Hank's daughter Jett Williams has seen it and has said the opposite (at least about the actor's portrayal). So did singer Rodney Crowell who had worked closely with Tom Hiddleston preparing him for the role. Most of the reviews I've read are lukewarm at best about the storyline and directing, but I haven't read many, save for yours, that pans Hiddleston's portrayal. I'll judge it for myself on its own merits when I do see it instead of relying on the opinions of Hank III who doesn't seem to take issue with the lackluster story, as you described it, but with where the lead actor was born. (maybe a man who would be okay with a yawn-worthy plot if the lead actor was played by a Southerner is simply expressing that he's upset he wasn't the Southerner asked to play the lead)
poorly written and very much a copy paste of other hate articles , i rate this 8 % of 200
The film’s ever shifting tones, as clunky as an old jalopy, fluctuate between comedy and mournfulness and for the most part achieves neither. At the film’s conclusion, Doris has fallen prey to an unrequited infatuation, the dissolution of a fantasized relationship and repetitive, empty utterances of “I’m possible,” and yet she still manages to achieve a seismic emotional breakthrough. Her stultifying home and work life has been completely deconstructed and it appears our titular character has connected with a newly powerful and confident inner self. Viewers may reckon the once regaled healing and transformative powers that are uniquely derived from true love may indeed be unnecessary and completely overrated.
yeah that really grinds my gears, everyone knows the Egyptian gods that really walked the earth at that time were black, how insulting to have white people cast.
kind of like the joke about the roof....it's over your head
It seems to me that you fail to understand that Krampus aims (and successes) to be both nasty and cute at the same time, both "a heart-warming story of a family bonded by the true spirit of the season (and the murder of animate toys)" and "a black comedy about fools whose cherished idols are actually bloodthirsty, Lovecraftian monsters" at the same time. It's not a movie confused between both approaches, but one that is both things at the same time, and it's precisely the combination of cuteness and evil what makes Trick r' Treat and the main symbol Sam so iconic.
" Working from a script by novelist Nick Hornby, director John Crowley (Intermission, Boy A) has made a movie you can take Grandma to — and one that might induce Grandma to reminisce about the dark passages and tough choices of her youth." This statement is insulting and so behind the times! This Grandma does NOT get "taken" to movies, but chooses her own books, movies, etc... The rest of what the reviewer has to say is irrelevant, given her neanderthal views.
My husband and I saw this Friday night and loved it. I agree Louis CK was dull, but we attributed this to his lack of experience. It was an entertaining look into a bizarre political storm . I thought the mixing of actual historical reels with movie made reels was well done. And the subject matter resonated with today's world. And for the most part all of the actors and actresses cast as actors and actresses did a good job,
