Well, wonderful! Smashing, really! Your reply to my post enhanced all my points (PS I still get email notifications about comments to this site...found yours rather bitter, like an old prune, so decided to reply). I guess I found your diminutive and dismissive lashing out at the post and my apparently much younger generation, or my post being representative of some sort of phantom prejudice you have against those of less seniority in the world, as a feeble attempt to use your (must be) advanced
My but aren't you the pretentious one? If you had read the whole "review" more closely, you might have understood that it was part of a series, and that my "constant references" to more recent film work are only due to the fact that I've seen those first (and were in no way constant). Also, not sure what makes you the authority on this. I thought my review, which is really more of a blogged assembly of reflections, was quite complimentary. In no way did I suggest that this film was lacking in
To be fair, cherry, I think the filmmakers aimed for some kind of compromise between the book folk and the non-book folk because there is a wide, vehement berth of book fans (myself included) who thought that while HP7P1 was hopeful and thorough, HP7P2 changed too much, neglected too much, and was about as emotionally flat as a a piece of vinyl, and for many of the reasons that you discuss in your review (Ron and Hermione's B story; the final showdown...which was completely changed; skirting over

and you gave it a 6! see, other begrudging males around the world, it's not so horrible. it's not a cinematic triumph, either, but it has its place :-D
This film represents the third of three films featuring John Cusack (of all people) that top my Netflix queue, just in case you were keeping track. High Fidelity rounds out the trio of John Cusack films Read the article
A few weekends ago, my friends and I decided to make a spontaneous trip to the cinema after being out and about and at a loss to kill time. It was one of those trips where you walk in to find out what's Read the article
always vague, sketchy. i don't want to go to Idaho! are you saying this film is a potato?
If you have been following my blog and these reviews recently, you must have gathered that during the holidays, I watched movies about as much as I ate, drank, and made merry, which was quite often. For Read the article

But is that the only reason you hate IB? Yes, QT is getting kind of arrogant in his old age, but there is a reason why he's got that legend. His style is unmatched and still completely entertaining. The rubbish scenario seems to be the grappling point at which many falter for this movie. So, like I say in my review, you either accept the scenario for what it is, a fantasy, a middle finger with the benefit of historical hindsight to those gone (but not forgotten), or you don't. If you don't,

that *was* a great fight! the whole movie had a stylish sleekness that i loved, and i think you're right to call the film a "gem." good reflection, but i stick to my 8. :-) i would bump it up if i loved the film, but i can't say i loved it as much as really really liked it. it's a fine distinction, but it is what it is.
