Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
RT on DVD & Blu-Ray
Inside Llewyn Davis
The film is unable to achieve any aims higher than as a sort of engaging pop-history pageant and amateur, if not inapt, psychological evaluation, due to the unavoidable lack of perspective and a final act that has yet to be written.
Shut the **** up Todd.

I'm actually surprised this is the first and only negative review of four... then again, my preconception of W being terrible isn't based in anything other than the fact that most Bush-based comedy/drama(not sure how many Bush-based dramas there are out there) are lame exploiters of Bush's unpopularity nowadays.
Oct 9 - 08:41 AM
I find it impossible to believe that Stone was even-handed in his approach to Bush.
Oct 9 - 11:08 PM
Making W. was a terrible choice right now. It's bad enough that we have to sit through another 2 1/2 months of his presidency. I don't want to tack on another 2 1/2 hours to it.

In response to this being the only bad review...read the actual reviews and not just the tomato-meter...they are ALL BAD! All the comments are directed at the controversy of "fresh" ratings for reviews that are panning this film. No fan of Bush but this is really an insult to our intelligence. Shame on you Rotten Tomatoes...and if it's the critics pushing the fresh button...shame on you for pandering to the lowest common denominator...is Ollie Stone buying you off?
Oct 10 - 07:41 AM
Careful McCarthy. People will automatically assume you're an evil Republican since you gave this movie a negative review. That's how *****ing stupid people are. I mean you must be biased or something.
Oct 10 - 10:33 PM
Well, this douche works for Variety, a well known Republican sh*thole.
Oct 11 - 02:07 AM
Do you even have to say Sh*thole after Republican Durden? Obviously you believe all Republicans are such. Tell you what. Here's a spoon. Eat my ***. You haven't even seen the film and you attack a guy with a negative review. Variety is a Republican publisher? Sure it is. You don't know what to believe. Just go smoke some more weed and regurgitate what the hippies tell you around the campfire.
Oct 11 - 06:17 PM
I don't think replying to a biased *** comment by making a biased *** comment refutes his point.
Oct 11 - 07:50 PM
Eat's Y4USay's *******. Yummy. Eat is all up!

First off, Oliver Stone is a horrible LEFT WING film maker who doesn't know the meaning of the term unbiased. His movies are bland and so left of the dial you feel like you watching the film on a hill. Second, all the liberal douches condemning this review had better of seen and loved the film. I doubt you have, as most of you vociferous left wing humorless dicks are only good at dishing it out. You can't take any crticism. Jeez, go watch a documentery not this sensationalized garbage.
Oct 11 - 05:31 PM
I bet Balls is going to feel really dumb when he sees the Colbert interview in which Ollie Stone--apparently under hypnosis--praises bush as "maybe the greatest president ever." Or do they not have that channel in his rural Arkansas trailer park?
Oct 13 - 02:42 AM
You are aware he was kidding right?
My god the people who go to this website are stupid.
Oct 15 - 04:53 PM
Stone was NOT serious when he said Bush was the greatest president ever. He was doing a bit, playing along with Colbert's character. A quote from Stone on MSNBC, Oct. 14: "I think he%u2018s a profoundly narrow-minded and provincial man. But I do think we need to understand him because I think we need to understand why we elected him, how we got to where we are at these crossroads and what we%u2018re facing. And frankly, if we don%u2018t look back at the recent past, how do we learn from it? I really believe in America, and I love the sense of initiative and freedom. And at the same time, I just wish we - sometimes we%u2018re a little bit more conscious about what we%u2018re doing, and I think we made a vast mistake in the last eight years - I really do." Does that make it clearer?

perhaps they should have made a movie about Obama. We know far less about him than any candidate ever for the highest office. So many associations with so many evil people, why does mainstream and ignorant sheep ignore them?
Oct 11 - 06:21 PM
Grrrr you disagree with the majority that makes you an idiot grrrr. Haha that's what you all look like right now.
Oct 12 - 06:52 AM
havent seen the movie yet obviously, but I've seen some past todd mccarthy reviews and I can't say I've ever agreed with a single one.
Oct 12 - 08:57 PM
All the smack talk aside (for the moment) I think the thing that worries me the most is having one of the all time most beautiful women in Hollywood, Thandie Newton (if she can be considered "Hollywood") portraying the pugnacious (and Pug-like) Condoleeza Rice ... if/when I see "W" and find myself liking, not to mention being attracted to Condi ... kill me now.As for "McHammer's" ludicrous assertion that it is liberals lacking in humor ... I'm just speechless ... does McHammer actually follow politics, or say, participate in society? Or has he perhaps seen The Daily Show or The Colbert Report and at any time contrasted them with say Red Eye on Fox News, that tries to mimic the liberal comedy news shows, but fails oh soooo miserably. Then again, why am I even surprised at this point, there are a handful of thoughtful, intelligent Republicans out there but more and more difficult to find.Along those lines, Y4USay ... not all Republicans, just a disappointingly significant majority.And ghoward79, it's amazing that you right wing anti-intellectuals can continue to profess some basic ignorance of Barack Obama ... I mean, he has only run the single longest campaign for the Presidency in the history of this great nation. He's only been vetted by every major newspaper and every major cable news channel every day for the past 2 years, including every right-wing rag out there ... and the most damning indictment they have discovered is a demonstrably (read factually conclusive) casual association with a man who committed abhorrent domestic crimes 40 YEARS AGO when Obama was 8 YEARS OLD!! Let's not even get into the fact that said associate is currently a tenured professor and a recognized and celebrated community member who was awarded Chicago's Citizen of the Year award in 1997. I know! How Horrible!! Get over it you loonies, you've already lost the election, try not to lose what little rational thought you have left.

Reading these posts is like stumbling into an alternate reality. "Humorless" liberals, Oliver Stone being a biased boring film maker, and appearently Y4USay just ****ing despises weed and campfires (two things which are fantastic). I think what really threw me the most though, besides Y4USay's powerful hatred of campfires, was the humorless liberals thing. It's really just kind of ****ing staggering, the kind of world Balls McHammer must live in. I can only imagine there that black is white, up is down, and Jeff Foxworthy is funny. Eerily though, Balls McHammer is an absolutely fantastic name, which makes me wonder if there's some kind of social conservative stand-up movement i know nothing about.Now on to this Oliver Stone business. Ya'll need to shut the **** up about Oliver Stone being politically biased. Did you not ****ing see World Trade Center? That movie was so patriotic a practically pissed red white and blue. I think Stone really loves Bush in a way most people don't understand, in a way even most conservatives don't. Imagine a puppy who you can sit and kill a couple beers with while watching the game, doesn't that just sound awesome? Even if occasionnaly the puppy tracks mud into the house or starts a land war in west Asia. Also, Stone made ****ing Platoon, does that really strike you as bland, or does it just feel that way because you smoke so much hot spicy pole?

I admit some of the angry remarks here are both intentionally and unintentionally hilarious, but let's just uh, like, you know, what's the word or words i'm thinking of... um... chill out...
Oct 13 - 05:46 PM
all most all of these comments are incredibly ignorant and short sighted.This is a movie not just a political statement so weather it be left or right wing, or god-forbid, right in-between who cares? We should be reviewing and judging it on how well done it is.Oh, and all four other critics seem to think it does a good job of chronicling without criticizing, so don't call it a left wing film to you watch you ignorant reactionaries.
Oct 13 - 09:16 PM
Ditto to everything iluvatar said. Election is over, grow up and get used to it. We had to deal with the crushing disappointment of W getting elected twice. You can't possibly believe that you are more victimized by the election of Obama!I welcome the humanizing of W as much as i welcome the first day of the rest of his life in Crawford. It seems from the reviews that this movie attempts to do so--despite what idiots assume about Stone.
Oct 13 - 11:24 PM
conservatives and liberals telling each other to grow up while calling each other silly junior high epithets........... this is TRUE entertainment!!!
Oct 14 - 02:00 PM
Well here's something legitimate and true about Barack Obama. He cannot place a disproportionate tax on "the wealthy" (according to him it's those who make 250,000 a year or more) and shift it to the not quite so wealthy without causing or deepening a recession. That's not just a fact, it's remedial economics. Barack must have missed that day.
If you want the recession to become profoundly worse, vote for Obama. If you want a faint possibility (though not very good) of the recession not getting worse, at least, vote for McCain. Toodles.
Oct 15 - 11:46 AM
Well it's remedial supply-side economics, based around the widely contested Laffer Curve, please, don't be condescending when proferring an idea as fact when it's totally not. As a Columbia and Harvard alum I'm sure Obama's taken his fair share of "remedial economics", Dracula68.
Oct 16 - 05:54 AM
I'm very pleased it seems like Stone didn't take the easy way out and just jump on the bandwagon, although I kinda expected that wouldn't be the case when I heard Josh Brolin was attached to the project. He seems to have the artistic integrity his father didn't to actually attempt to portray the truth rather than resorting to a self-serving characature or a man who probably was exactly what we should have seen him to be, not an anti-christ, but a well-intentioned man elected to an extremely demanding job he wasn't ready for, and before the democrats start patting themselves on the back and mocking the "stupid evil Republicans" they must at least shoulder part of the blame for nominating the only two people in the world (Gore and Kerry) who couldn't have beaten Bush in those elections. Regardless of who wins the upcoming election McCain or more likely Obama at least we've made a positive step toward taking our country back from the Fox News/CNN driven fanatics on both sides of the political spectrum who frequent those programs...and apparently Rotten Tomatoes en masse.
Oct 16 - 09:07 AM
I dunno if you guys just noticed that but WestM just cockslapped dracula68 right across the mouth, in like, slow motion. That was awesome.
Oct 16 - 12:29 PM
Awwww, the movie makes Bush look sympathetic. Sorry to disappoint all you liberal **** suckers.
