Heaven Is for Real
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Christian-movie with somewhat cock-eyed production values. Still Good. "Jesus is For Real" seems like a better title/

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

GEWN DIES AND I AM HURT. I NEVER, EVER, EVER WANT TO SEE ANOTHER MOVIE AGAIN IN MY WHOLE LIFE.
I've had people die suddenly in my life and the PAIN IS INDESCRIBABLE.
I HATE THIS MOVIE.
its 5 stars 100 percent because it effected me so much.

12 Years a Slave
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

thank you for joining me, reading this.
I broke-down and saw it two days ago. its TRAUMATIC, DEVASTATING, DISTURBING!

I'll finish writing this later.

thinking about it produces PTSD symptoms in me:
the two slaves, lynched, dangling from trees - getting to shaking spasmodically.

Eliza, the slave, weeping for her children suddenly being snatched away and dragged into the forest under the late afternoon sun to be lynched and "put out of her misery"

The protagonist being beaten into submission: from walking erect in the beginning of the film to having the self-respect beaten out of him.

very, very painful to watch. I found it hard to look the two white people in the eye who were standing in Cinemapolis (Ithaca, NY) lobby.

pure junk.

Ruggero Deodato-style of "Observer thrust into horrendous situations" only to come-out at the end a changed individual.

I am a descendant of slaves and 12 YEARS A SLAVE IS A BLATANT RIP-OFF OF DJANGO UNCHAINED. OFFENSIVE, Stereotypical hack work.
My great-great grandparents were born slaves and none of this crap happened to them.
there are many slave experiences that are never discussed because they go against the normal perception of slavery.
my ancestors were taught to read by their slave masters and treated very respectfully by all accounts.

The Bling Ring
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I saw THE BLING RING last night and it is AWESOME yet film critics panned the film saying it wasn't "deep enough" . . .

HANG ALL FILM CRITICS BY THEIR NECKS HIGH FROM GALLOWS IN THE TOWN SQUARE AND SHOOT THEM WITH BULLETS AS THEY CHOKE TO DEATH

because how is a comedy like THE BLING RING going to be the dark comedy that it is if it becomes a "deep character essay of criminality" like professional film critics say it should be.

YES, film critics CAN and DO HAVE THE POWER TO WRECK MOVIES in the public eye.

RoboCop
RoboCop (2014)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Robocop may be the most important film of the 21st century;

it shows America for the imperialistic bullying scum it really is.

IDEAS . . . EMOTIONALLY POWERFUL AND GRIPPING. the first ten minutes accurately depicts the TERROR AMERICA EVINCES ON THE REST OF THE WORLD.
