I get the argument, too, but to apply it to motherfucking Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, come on? What did he want, to see Wonka find out Shia's his son and have a jungle adventure?

I did like Indy IV, too. Good experience both times I saw it, albeit for different reasons each time.
Different reasons, eh?

"Breaking Glass" is too short. Warrants mentioning.

What site are these reviews from again?

The only film I've reviewed recently was Knocked Up; hardly cinematic genius, and not much to it.

Well, any subpar reviewer, in any genre, only frames things in terms of referencing other films, because that's an easy/lazy way out. When you lack the verbal arsenal one needs to convey your thoughts, and/or you are devoid of any real creativity of your own, you need to resort to shortcuts like easy comparisons.

I would have been fine with American Beauty if I hadn't read the original script. Why they decided to leave out the original intro, and clearer signs that Chris Cooper's character was gay, I don't really understand. But still, this is my favorite movie of all time I'm nitpicking, so obviously these things aren't THAT bothersome to me

Flixster, or the Movies app on Facebook.
