Re: “Still standing: The World Trade Center on film

It wasn't the Green Goblin in Spider-Man; it was Doctor Octopus in Spider-Man 2...

Re: “The Descendants: Clooney goes Hawaiian

Can't wait to see this -- Payne seems to always deliver such unique, thought-provoking films.

Re: “Jack and Jill can’t even fetch a chuckle

I still haven't been able to shake this one, Joe. And I have a high tolerance for bad movies. Want me to watch Underworld? Sure. Sit through Live Free and Die Hard over and over? No problem. Heck, I can watch Tony Scott's Man on Fire and you won't hear a peep out of me (though I may need to stare at a white wall for a few hours to detox).

My review doesn't come close to conveying how awful this movie is. A reviewer at Film School Rejects calls Sandler's "Jill" performance "a drag act that becomes so excruciatingly unpleasant it inspires involuntary shudders and post-traumatic nightmares." Bingo.

Amen, Sal.

Re: “Jack and Jill can’t even fetch a chuckle

It's as if Sal is somehow trying to negate the entire experience of seeing the film. A critical exorcism, if you will. Sadly, I fear this one will stick with him a long time.

Negative-integer rating. Awesome!

Re: “Still standing: The World Trade Center on film

Nice piece, Joe, and great interview on Studio10, which is available on their site, folks.

Well done overview, Joe.

Re: “Fall Arts 2011: Movies

Nice rundown, Joe. Thank you for validating the healing power of Taylor Lautner's abs.

Re: “Harry Potter and the Deathly Adaptations

Dumbledore vs. The Death Eaters = Wrong! This movie ending changed so much I couldn't stand it. They missed what should have been awesome fight scenes to cut budget and time. Ruined the movie for me, and ruins my anticipation of the last film.

Re: “J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 isn't Spielberg but it's good

It's definitely worth seeing. (And as with most blockbusters these days, the younger you are, the more you're going to like it.)

Side note: I'm wondering if the projector in the theater I saw Super 8 in was set correctly. I've seen recent stories about theaters not resetting the projectors from 3D to 2D, causing sharp reductions in brightness. The climax of the movie seemed unbearably dark to me. Check it and let me know what you think.

Re: “J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 isn't Spielberg but it's good

Very nice review, Joe. I had a feeling this would be a case of Abrams trying too hard to emulate the master, but I appreciate the ambition, and will definitely be seeing it.

Re: “X-Men: First Class doesn't live up to its title

You might want to read a little more closely. I said I enjoyed it, not that it was good.

anybody who thinks X3 was any good had zero credentials to review movies

Re: “X-Men: First Class doesn't live up to its title

X men and superhero movies in general suck. I 'm sure it will be very impressive to look at but have an IQ in the gutter.

Re: “X-Men: First Class doesn't live up to its title

As a reader of the comic who gave up sometime in the middle of the last decade, and started in the late 80s, I think the movies stink. I like the action, and the fact that Magneto walks around doing whatever it is that Magneto wants. A staircase to Alcatraz, why not the Golden Gate? But ultimately I think they are weak, and need to be left for dead. Oh and get the damn movie people out of the actual book comic business too.
That said, I love Chris Nolan for what he's done for Batman. And, who can complain about The Watchmen, and Sin City (1?)I would love to see hyper real version of Superman, and Batman's The Killing Joke, and Arkham Asylum.
