Comments: Film Critic Quote of the Week

I watched "Flags of Our Fathers" last night and wasn't too impressed. Yeah, yeah, yeah...Ira can't take being called a hero, Ira saw some really bad stuff. I'm sure you could make an interesting movie on Ira Hayes without playing the same note again and again.

I heard one reviewer say that Eastwood took one chapter of Bradley's book and expanded it into the entire movie.

"shallow and pedantic" - was this review written by Peter Griffin?

Babel had two GREAT parts (the Japan segment, and the Mexico/housekeeper segment) that could have stood on their own as tragic stories. But the part that was sold (at least around here) as the "main story" pretty much ruined the film for me. If you want a depressing view of the world, go see Pan's Labyrinth or Children of Men, both FAR superior films to Babel.
