Jexi

Although the title is confounding and perhaps the movie’s worst misstep, it’s Byrne’s digitized and stilted delivery that earns the biggest laughs.

Gemini Man

Lee's recent desire to be at the forefront of frame-based technology, however, is resulting in hollow, empty experiences that are literally hard to watch.

"The American" was abysmal, slow and plodding

From Stanley Farb, Somerset, NJ:

My wife and I have long been fans and followers of your advice. We are almost agree with your film commentary. But I must take exception with your praise for "The American." With your review and George Clooney's acting/directing, we were expecting a quality film. Aside from the scenery and the nudity, this film, IMHO, was abysmal. A slow, plodding story (I hesitate to glorify it with the word plot ) with almost no significant dialogue, and such improbable scenarios as assemblage of a high quality, precision weapon with a few crude tools and some used car parts added to our disappointment.

Our bleak view was endorsed by a number of other patrons as we left the theatre. I shall continue to follow your advice, but I felt compelled to express my divergent view on this film.
