Critic Review - East Bay Express

One way to salvage some fun with this blunderbuss would be to fall asleep while watching and dream up a better movie yourself. Try it. You'll avoid a headache.

Yeah, what the hell kind of movie requires the audience to actually THINK to understand it rather than just bathing them in CGI? A dumb movie, that's what.

i give him credit...the older movies that he likes (scooby-doo, chapter 27 and wild wild west)..he admits to them being awful, but he enjoyed them....good that hes honest..but hes still an idiot to have enjoyed them in the first place...but those movies also require 0 know nolans film is a masterpiece when the people who give it a positive review absolutely love it, and the ones that dont, hate it..all great things have a large group that love it and a minority looking to stir **** up by hating it..perhaps they cant admit that maybe a new director has arrived that is better than one that they used to jerk off to as a kid...hmm such a shame

Well, I guess that intellectually challenged people also deserve to be represented in the critics world.

but somehow you think Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Leap Year were good movies, yet Avatar was rotten.

Leap Year was a by the book romantic comedy and Percy Jackson a mindless CGI affair.

But It's Inception that you can dream up a better replacement for?

I don't know why people think Avatar was such a masterpiece. There are some legitimate reasons to why people may not like the film.

This was alright. I'm not going to swoon over it, though. (my first viewing of "memento" was much more affecting. However, "Avatar" did suck. Transparent plot and characters in that one.

Percy Jackson and Wolfman? Really? You're a stupid, stupid man.

Do you even like movies? Because this is literally the worst review I've ever read. Never trust a man with two first names.

Jul 15 - 10:04 AM


Rob Alicea

It's bad, but hardly the worst. The trolls Armond White and Rex Reed share the title for that.

have you seen the movie yet?

No Nick G. I have not. But I trust Christopher Nolan's ability to make one hell of a movie.

what an idiot...I think you feel asleep during the movie and dreamt about your own wonder you gave it a rotten

I haven't seen inception, but I am going to bash this reviewer because I am such a fanboy, EMOOOOOOOOO TIME! lol

I looked over his other reviews...some pretty horrible to say his taste in movies is so aweful that I can file this away next to Dustin Putzman and Armond White.

It's funny how the nolanoids rush in to comment any negative review, even without having seen the movie yet.Everyone has their own opinions, so why only the positive reviews are considered valid?

Jul 15 - 10:24 AM


Phil McGroin

You must be another farmer who takes Armond White to the Cubs game...funny how you also rush into these restrooms to comment on them.

that feeling you just experienced was the halibut slamming into the gong with chocolate in the center

Phil McGroin dont need to quote a's pretty obvious who and what you were responding to.

You must be another idiot who takes Armond White at face value...funny how you also rush into these reviews to comment on them.

that feeling you just experienced was the pot slamming into the kettle with you at the center
Btw I don't take any critic at face value and didn't rush... but it's an evidence, you only need to look at the number of comments for each review.

Another sad thing to see is how most of you are prompt to call names if you don't like what you read.

Looks kinda like Larry David...what a comedian!

joe monastro

Who's this guy anyways? I know when Ebert, Travers, and Roeper all rave about Inception, it's definitely not terrible. I mean seriously, its one thing to give it a poor review but to bash it as some awful movie makes you look silly given the vast majority of awesome reviews.

This isn't even a review... it's barely a paragraph, and a third of it is useless flaming without any warrents to back it up.
Why write a review that is totally unhelpful like this?

I apologize that you dont have enough intellegence to fully grasp a movie with such high depth. Instead of wasting your money on the next blockbuster hit, you should go spend ten bucks on the new alvin and the chipmunks. I hear that they are making a smurf movie. you should look into that.

This is yet another critic who was too stupid to understand the movie. Look for other job, you suck as a critic.

The first paragraph of his whole article was based one how the symbolic surrounding each characters "name" wasn't "developped enough" to his liking. Who gives a ****?! Out of everything that happened in the movie that's what you care about? The character's names? There is zero content in you're whole article. It's all crap! You shouldn't be allowed to critic on anything.
