BullBearMS: EdgeRunner: Why is it so hard for you to accept that the studio gratefully latched onto the fringe misogynist comments, and tried to use them to shout down any legitimate criticism?

Legitimate criticism of what?

Why is it so hard to admit some of the asshat fedora wearing neckbeard crowd deserved to be called out for their behavior?

Why is it hard to admit that this behavior started long before there was a movie screening to criticize?

Did they call you out, personally? Because that is literally the only reason I can imagine that someone (who isn't named Trump) would be incapable of letting it go more than a year later.


Legitimate criticism of a bad movie for being bad, Mr. Deliberately Obtuse. And again, you're the one who can't let go here. Sony and Paul Feig took the serious social issue of gender inequality and tried to turn it into a media carnival just to sell a crummy film. That's actually pretty shameful, but you keep trying to champion their cynicism as a heroic act. It's both fascinating and embarrassing to watch.

IT absolutely blew me away...9 out of 10 - and maybe my new fave Stephen King movie.

I don't watch horror movies generally, and IT did not (in the end) even feel like a horror movie...it felt like a coming of age film.

It was incredible!

thornhill: but Americans aren't so discerning when it comes to movies, especially comedies.


Ehh, I dunno. I've seen what other countries consider to be comic relief, and if anything, it's worse.

In the US, you only see the best of what other countries have to offer for comedy. Britain isn't just Rowan Atkinson and Peter Sellers and the Monties Python, it's also the 22nd Carry-On film. French comedy can be Tati, or Jerry Lewis. Everyone poops.

Saw Kingsman last weekend.  Loved it.  If you were a fan of the first one, it's very similar in tone and approach, minus the origin story.  Goofy evil overlord plot, celebrity focused shenanigans, cheesy-but-fun scene chewing, gratuitous action.  Fun all around.

Also, if you haven't had a chance to watch, go find Logan Lucky somewhere.  It's a redneck Oceans 11, and it's very well done.

I believe I've mentioned several times that I have no problem criticizing the movie itself and have offered my own criticism of one of the big plot problems.

So why keep lying about that?

Were you aware that I was replying to your own question from your own post? Which I included directly above my response? Quoted verbatim?

Oh FFS, no one's got a problem with MRAs being ridiculed. The problem is that Sony isolated and showcased their comments in a desperate attempt to make them look like they were the only critics, because they wanted to silence the actual majority reaction of this:

And you not only bought it hook, line and sinker, but you're still propping up Sony's discredited narrative because God forbid anyone think you got suckered by Paul Feig and Sony's amoral sales team. Oh no, not someone with your sharp observational skills, that could never happen.

stoli n coke: Armond White?


Oddly enough no. It was a Vicky Roach from the Daily Telegraph in Australia.

I'm just sad we can't say that Flatliners' reviews....

...have flatlined.

Pandora's Litterbox: 2. Happy Death Day - pg-13


Nobody may ever see this comment, but I got to say the idea of Groundhog's Day married to a psycho killer plot has the possibility of being pretty good. But then I saw the rating....
/I don't like horror or slasher flicks, but I like the idea of this one.
