Logan Lucky

Watching it is like finding money in the pocket of a coat that you haven’t worn in years.

The sense of place and uniformly superb performances make it worth seeing, and maybe ultimately singing along with.

Just middlebrow garbage

I was very surprised and slightly amazed that you pick “Crash” as the best film of the year, especially since I thought it awful. It was just a bad rehash of what Altman has done so brilliantly over the years and also what Paul Thomas Anderson has also been doing so much better than hack Haggis. It was really just a piece of middlebrow garbage.

Also I watched your show last Saturday in which you and the other critic picked the 10 worst films and I thought the choices were all easy targets. I mean, come on -- of course these films were rotten. (I would never see any movie with Jessica Simpson in it anyway.) In fact I didn't see any of the films mentioned on either of your lists. As stated above, “Crash” would be on my list of 10 worst films. Also included would be “The Interpreter,” “Batman Begins,” “The Skeleton Key” and “Dark Water.” These are all big-budget Hollywood films and all were terrible. In any case I do enjoy watching you and have respect for your views.
