Re: To the Wonder

To the Wonder

Terrence Malick's To the Wonder arrives -- arrived to me, anyhow -- with a built-in reputation as his most abstract and inaccessible film to date. It's quite possible that there is no arguing with...

I've read about half of Englander's WHAT WE TALK ABOUT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT ANNE FRANK. I thought the title story was quite good, as was the one about the old folks camp, or whatever it's called. But...

Re: Evil Dead (2013)

Based on what I actually wrote, I suppose my rating should go up a star, but I've grown to dislike the movie more since writing about it originally. I think it's an essentially useless film.

Re: James Herbert, R.I.P.

I've never read Herbert either, though when I was younger I bought a few of his books and hovered around them. I don't know why I never did, but I probably will finally read one now (either The Rats...

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

Well that entirely depends on your mood. I suppose you could have already chosen, but anyway, I enjoy both very much. Cabin is a whole lot of fun, Method is wonderful, queasy drama.

Django Unchained

Django Unchained is not a very interesting movie. This is not a criticism. Wait a minute, yes it is. What it isn't, though, is a condemnation. I walked into Quentin Tarantino's new film with no small...
