Noooo not Madea!

Rust and Bone on the 5 worst list? No credibility right there.

I saw "Witness Protection" at the discount cinema. Not a great movie by any means, but certainly not "worst" worthy.

Hmm, Room 237 must have something to do with The Shining, but I never heard of anything coming out about that.

2016 was fantastic.

What's his problem with Rust and Bone, and how can he possible think it's one of the five worst films?

by Anonymousreply 612/12/2012

He's right about John Carter though... Beyond belief bad.

As idiotic as 2016 and Tyler Perry movies are, it's silly to put them in a worst list. Movies that are actually striving for something artistic and failing would be better to place in the list. It's like comparing a kid's nativity play to something running on Broadway.

Where's Les Miserables? Hello??

Les Miserables is firmly in the middle ground.

R5 eagerly spoons up his grandma's shit.

"Killing Them Softly" in the Top 10? Bizarre.

He just really didn't understand RUST AND BONE, and I also have to think he has some weird problems with disability. He seemed horribly offended by the special effects that removed Cotillard's legs in a way that he would not have been if she were just nekkid in another movie with full legs attached. She looked... like Marion Cotillard looks and the CGI was so impressive that it didn't call attention to itself after an initial "Wow. How did they do that?"

This didn't need a thread.

Someone please start a RUST AND.BONE thread. I want to talk about it, now.

by Anonymousreply 1512/12/2012

If he made a 10 best, he should've made a 10 worst. Like there's any shortage of horrible movies. Are he afraid of stepping on toes?

Agreed r5. Not everyone here is a Democrat. Why can't some people here understand that?
