    I’m glad to say I haven’t seen any of these films.

    I had to review “W.E.” myself (on an amateur basis) and fully support its inclusion here.

    Thank you, Michael.

    I think you were a bit harsh when it came to “The Odd Life of Timothy Green.” Like any fantasy film, its story doesn’t survive over-analysis. Sure, there are elements that aren’t logical (or realistic). I found it to be a sweet, quirky film. I’d hate to hear you pick apart “The Wizard of Oz” and point out all the gaps in logic contained in it. Suspend belief and allow yourself to enjoy.

    I’m amazed “Looper” didn’t find a way onto the list.

      I have to agree. I WANTED to like Looper. But the writing was terrible, the pacing was horrible – at some times painfully slow and at others so fast that it was hard to follow – the dialog ridiculous, and all the intangibles wanting. AND – the great “revelation” at the end was completely unpredictable because it was based on a throwaway line mentioned in the narration once at the very beginning of the film and then ignored until the end.

      I watched the entire moving telling myself “this has to get better” but it never did. It’s one of the few times that I felt like I wasted a buck and a quarter on a Redbox flick…

    I just saw Hyde Park yesterday. Came away depressed, knowing that a person can be thought of as a successful politician and still be a scumbag as a person. What’s more…people are readily and eagerly entranced by these scumbags, knowing they are stupid, but content to be in the scumbag’s life. Reminds me of a lot of politicians today, hmmmm

    madmarvelgirl Posted on I totally agree about Jean. They were only sratting to get at the potential of that character when she died. Both times. (Both times she stayed dead; not talking about other times).I can’t think that I’ve ever drifted away from a story immediately following a character death, but I know that lineups definitely have an affect on my interest in following stories. I say I’m an X-men’ fan, but there are a lot of classic’ stories I haven’t bothered with because they don’t have Scott or Jean in them.

    I find that after Christmas 90% of the movies are rated R. My husband and I find that I can’ take the violence and he can’t take the sex and nudity. We also don’t want to pay the studios for gratuitus sex and violence. I wish you would discuss this more in general and in your reviews.

    Any movie with Adam Sandler should automatically be included.
