Re: Cruella

Stewie, my good man, why oh why did you expect anything different from Modern Woke Hollywood? Haven't you been burned enough times? I had no reason to expect this throwing of their paying audience under the bus to this degree. Disney can't rely on news establishment backup like politicians, sports,...

Cruella

Over-the-top inane and silly with touches of slapstick, all to make victimhood an acceptable excuse for one’s bad behavior. First, Estella (the future Cruella) is subject to a string of white, male, incompetent authority figures who unwittingly precondition her for the ultimate baddie, the Baroness....

Re: Tenet

Finally watched it yesterday. Rated T7. Movie is just a vehicle for Nolan to show how smart he is. This is the first non-Batman Nolan movie, I don't feel like watching a second time to figure out all the stuff I missed - I just don't care what I missed. I don't want to find more clues about how sma...

Covid Cinema Antidote

Looking at the top ten on Criticker, it appears that dystopia has now brought the majority of film down to the pop culture level, even "superhero" movies--and quality has been brought down with it, to the point that most of us apparently can't be caught gazing at navels that aren't infected or malig...

Re: Most over-rated/under-rated filmmakers on criticker?

My shouldda been list, in approximate order : Norman Jewison Walter Hill (among other great films, Director of the most underrated film of all time, "Undisputed", probably due in large part to ignorance, what with the fact that it wasn't marketed and then that four sequel chain of trash that were, ...

Re: Cruella

The funny part here is I think you would really like The Critical Drinker if you watched more of his content. He even has a similar type of sociopolitical perspective. And most of the movies he loves are ones you're a big fan of, too. I don't mind the occasional use of sarcasm or ridicule, but serv...

Re: Cruella

In the context of China, many American films were outright banned or never got the chance to arrive on Chinese shores due to being outright banned or American developers viewing the Chinese market as not being valuable enough to cope with their demands of censorship. I'm not privy to the details, b...

Re: Cruella

A silly, generic dismissal, especially since 1. The Critical Drinker was criticizing Disney and their business model of putting out warmed-over trash based on nostalgia, NOT a piece of art, which is what the quote is about. 2. The Critical Drinker's channel is full of videos praising various movies...

Again, it's not like there is a reward for arguing here.


You wouldn't think that, at least not from your posts. And talk about ignoring the points and links in others' posts, you obviously never even watched the latest trailer, just what that puffed up Critical Drunk Jerk said about it.

Created Equal: Clarence Thomas In His Own Words

I saw this movie a year ago in a theater. I gave it the highest rating I ever have for a documentary (9/10), because it's not only enlightening and surprising, but it's especially interesting. And though it had some left wing support initially, from PBS and the Washington Post, Jeff Bezos and Amazon...
