Did he stay for the whole movie this time or think he saw enough after 20 minutes?


And how does it compare to Myra Breckinridge?

For anyone who hasn't seen it is on YouTube
Apparently full and uncut

Rex Reed was an insufferable twat 30 years ago, and he still is today. I wonder how someone who knows nothing about movies has managed to critique them for so long.

I really thought Rex Reed died like 20 years ago. Wasn't he in Superman?  Next thing I know you'll be telling me Gene Shalit is alive too.

I hate horror movies and don't care about this thing.

94 minutes of prime Raquel Welch cannot be considered the worst of anything. Plus John Huston and Mae West(and Rex Reed of course)? Bad, but not that bad.

From what I've read, Aronofsky's new flick is very polarizing, and people who don't like it absolutely hate it.

I'm thinkin' he's not familiar with Lars von Trier.

WTF kind of job is "movie critic" anyway? Anyone with an internet connection can do the same job for free with the same qualifications.

What about Primer? The 'I've no idea what it's about, but that's what makes it great' classic beloved of some Farkers.

My candidate for one of the worst films ever made.

I've yet to make it through one of his films
 
2017-09-15 09:47:28 PM  
He didn't see nearly enough movies or has dementia or something. It was pretty farked up, disturbing and just generally weird but it was *GASP* original. If it disturbed him personally, that doesn't make it a bad movie.
 
2017-09-15 09:47:30 PM  
C'mon, mods! Slap a "SPOILER!" on this one!

Reed's article explicitly describes how it ends. WTF?!

/Reed actually thought "Requiem" was shiat?!

Wretschko: /Reed actually thought "Requiem" was shiat?!


It sounds like any movie that disturbs him he doesn't like.
 
2017-09-15 09:52:53 PM  
I didn't understand it in the slightest so that means it's brilliant.

Rex Reed is the perfect source for a movie recommendation if you assume he lives in opposite world.

Rex Reed thought Meet Me in St Louis was too edgy.

He's probably right. Some of the movies and shows that you guys fawn over, I think are complete bullshiat. The Arrival was a farking sleeping pill to me. Marvel movies are not all that to me(No I'm not a DC fan). Jessica Jones was crap. on Monday she's lifting trucks, the by Wednesday she get beat up by normal humans.

I only understood about half of that and 1/3 of that was wrong. But I suppose it's all subjective. Except for the wrong parts.

There was a time when a critic was a real job.  They knew how a movie was made, how a director was trying to communicate at a psychological level, the mythology of film.  They could tell you what and why a film was "good."  A "good" film isn't necessarily entertaining however.  It may bore audiences to tears but still be "good."  And quite often entertaining films are absolute garbage; it's how Michael Bay makes a living.  The problem is entertaining only exists in the eye of the individual viewer while we've become convinced it is the job of critics to tell us what is entertaining.

There are plenty of movies that are entertaining without being Michael Bay level of stupidity. There are also movies that are boring as shiat without really having anything to say.

Show on Netflix.  The ending is, to put it simply, ambiguous.  Consider yourself warned

The ridiculously variable power sets are by far the worst things about the NetFlix shows. How hard can it be to stick with your in universe rules if you're the one writing them?

Really? In a world with Michael Bay cranking out the same movie over and over?

Somehow I suspect he's the sort of old man who tells women they should smile more.
