Default Re: Rate the last movie you watched.

a modern film cannot get 100% on rt anymore due to the fact that there are a dozen or so 'critics' that deliberatly give bad reviews to a 100% film even tho they admit not having seen the films- to get everyone clicking their site to read the review and posting in fury....rt is a great site but it shocks me that they allow that to still happen, its a joke.

basically 95%+ is 100% on rotten tomatoes.

As long as Armond White is around, no film will get 100%. This guy makes no sense in some of his reviews and seemingly just enjoys playing the contrarian role. He's very consistent when it comes to this.

Rex Reed is a fucking douchebag too.

God I love that movie. The Dennis Hopper/Walken scene is classic. Easily a 95+ for me.

I'm very intrigued...... and happy to hear the trailer didn't unnecessarily hype up an average movie.

The film is visceral... it depicts obsession and mania in a very voracious way. The acting and directing is stellar.. and a large amount of scenes give you shills and leave a strong impression. Its definitely a film to be seen in theater. The in your face score can only be appreciated when seeing it in the big screen.

Not sure how to respond to it.. It does have a potent lesbian scene.. but also the film almost serves as a horror flick, so the scare factor is there..

Im not sure if everyone is going to appreciate this film.. so I would be weary about going with someone that is going to decrease the potential of the experience..

While it didn't directly answer my question, it indirectly gave me the information to make the proper decision. Thank you.

Hoooolllyyyyy shit. This movie was so amazing. If you haven't seen it, see it.

Starts out a brilliant documentary about these two players. Turns into a brilliant documentary about these two kids. And you really feel a connection with these kids, you want to slap Aurthur for being a slacker and then cheer for him so hard when he's in the city tourney. I mean when WIlliam starts getting injured you just feel for him. Wow. It was so fantastic.

10/10. Easily.
