I want to see. Lord knows I have nine million problems with the Prequels, but this movie can still be good.

I dig the poster for "We Need to Talk About Kevin." The movie was fantastic, with strong performances all around and a good buildup to and fairly tasteful execution of the big horrific event.


And if they ever made a "Batman Beyond" movie, the guy playing the older Kevin would be perfect as the leader of the Joker gang.

I will definitely see it. In part due to the fact that even George Lucas couldn't get this film distributed easily, I wanna prove those executive morons wrong... And also because it looks pretty darn good.

Nice allusion to Mr. Plinkett, by the way. I never thought about how people might miss the point of those reviews, but I suppose you can be ignorant to anything's point.

I'm only posting here from now on. Geez Bob, you really know how to bring to assholes out of the wood works over at the escapist.

Also, I'm glad this movie doesn't suck. It's a shame that it doesn't open anywhere near me. Hopefully it'll do well enough to justify a wider release in a week or two.

The Lucas haters have nothing to do with it Bob. Sometimes a movie just sucks, even if you like for whatever bizarre reason. For evidence, look no further than your recommendation for The Last Airbender.

Hey Bob the third pic of "Gina" in you Gina/Wonder Woman comparisons is actually Kyra Gracie. Good episode otherwise though.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who is tired of hearing about stupid CGI complaints. Who cares who shot first in episode IV? It's not even a 1 minute scene, and the actual gun shot or shots lasted like a half second. And they're ready to dismiss the whole thing because of that. It's a 1 second fight. God.

I have to say this definitely rates up there with a lot of the more "unhelpful" Moviebob reviews I've watched. There is a lot that's wrong with Red Tails, and the lack of critical comment provided in this video did grate a little. All I could pick out of it, aside from a synopsis of what the movie's about, was that it's "fun", and that the CGI usage isn't horribly badly done.

Speaking of the allusion to Mr. Plinkett, for a much more informed, critical breakdown of the film, I'd recommend Red Letter Media's most recent Half in the Bag episode. There's a lot more discussion there that picks up on the horrible cinematography, bizarre tone, and downright insulting way in which this movie was promoted prior to release.
