Hank: Here we are with my complete “Dirty Harry” box set. Go ahead, everyone, make my day!
Hank: Amir Bar-Lev’s “Long Strange Trip” is an expansive document of the sunniest, funniest, hippiest and trippiest band of all time!
Cousin Franz: "Dirty Harry" has enough little winks and nudges to let us know that it’s not REALLY suggesting that cops should shoot first and ask questions later. Sure, it’s a right-wing fantasy, But that’s our Clint! It’s all in good fascist fun.
Beatricia: “Toy Story 2” mainly surprised people by being the first animated sequel that didn’t suck. Well, aside from “The Care Bears Movie 2: A New Generation,” which will always occupy a colorful nook in my heart.
Grandpa Felicius: This David Fincher fellow merely apes “All the President’s Men,” from its newsroom shots to its press-praising propaganda- and if honesty may be exercised, that Nixon-nixer was just “The Front Page” made unfunny.
Cousin Franz: Bong Jon-Hoo’s “Memories of Murder” turns the real life case into a fiction that expertly mixes Hitchcockian suspense, slapstick humor, quiet observational drama, and genuine psychological insights.
Hank: "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" builds up to the moment when traumatized Iraq War veterans become a mere backdrop to Beyonce’s bootyliciousness!
Hank: They’ve made movies out of everything Stephen King has ever put his name to, so it’s odd that there has never been an epic attempt to moviefy 1984’s “The Talisman”.
