Skylar Browning you're a man after my heart. I want to add Troll 2 and Best Worst Movie, a documentary about the legend of Troll 2. The screenwriter says she chose to make the goblins who live in Nilbog plant-eaters as an anti vegetarian statement, which is hilarious and awesome as I'm sure many important film scholars have said.
Year of the Dog is pretty boring but I liked it better than you.
finally, check out my new catchphrase:
pigs are smarter than dogs dot com !
Never read the book, which I think works in my favor because I thought this movie was great! Likely because 1. I love movies about kids doing grown up things. 2. Limited though I'm sure it is in the film compared to the novel, I enjoyed the experience of watching Ender navigate the world as a game of strategy and the moral choices he's faced with making.
CGI is bullshit, as many important critics have said, but if it ever had a purpose, surely it would be for interstellar warfare! Still, I agree that the CGI is not very good.
Overall, I'd say reading this review really added something to my life.
nice Gilbert Grape reference.
you're right, Lionel. It's the best supporting actor category where they've all won, I think I conflated the two in my head when I was writing it.
I did guess 4/5 correctly though, you will give me that.
this is a great review. cinema is doomed.
and three cheers to whoever came up with "Blech Magic!"
Duane was one of my best students. He made everybody else look bad. Great interview! I wish I'd thought of it.
"But to say "time has been kind" to the film—to mention time at all—is cruel, since it still takes an eternity for Cimino to tell such a thin story. It's wonderful and flawed, audacious and tedious."
ha. that is killer. thanks for telling me this weird story about a movie I knew little about!
