Re: “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them

I would have to firmly disagree, my wife and I went to see his yesterday and were both completely surprised at what a truly fantastic film this was. Can't wait to see it again!!!!

Re: “Jason Bourne: Matt Damon Cashes Another Check

They can call it Bourne Free. And it will be about lions.

Re: “Jason Bourne: Matt Damon Cashes Another Check

Nah. They can always just reboot the entire Bourne series in about 10 years with a new actor when Damon is too old to play the part.

Maybe some year in the near future, Hollywood will have an original idea.

Re: “The Legend of Tarzan

I really like this movie, moreso than this reviewer. But this review is fair and balanced. Mr. McCoy seems to weigh the film against the source material and not the Tarzan films of past decades. One correction: 1. Edgar Rice Burroughs was not an Englishman. He was an American, born and raised in Chicago. Having read many of the pulp magazines of the early part of the last century, he felt he could write stories as good, or bad, as those he was reading. Thus, John Carter of Mars and Tarzan of the Apes were conceived.
Mr. McCoy is a bit critical of the flashbacks stretching into the 2nd half of the movie, but one of them, the killing of Kala, Tarzan's ape mother, by Chief Mbonga's son and followed by Tarzan killing the young warrior in a vengeful rage, is an important point in this story. It shows us why Chief Mbonga wants to kill Tarzan.

Re: “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie

Joan Collins is looking fabulous at 83!

Jennifer Saunders is the funniest human on the planet, except for Stephen Fry. And maybe Vicki Lawrence.

Re: “Ghostbusters

Great movie! Stay seated until the credits have ended. I was pleased to see Cecily Strong in the movie, also. Chris Hemsworth's best part is contained in the closing credits.

Re: “Ghostbusters

I will see this because Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are the most talented performers on Saturday Night Live since the 70's. I watch SNL mainly to watch them.

I've only seen parts of the original Ghostbusters because I've never liked -- and still can't watch -- Bill Murray.

Re: “The Legend of Tarzan

This is what I thought. But, my wife wants me to look like this Tarzan fellow. So, I am sure we will see it soon enough anyway. Sausage Factory.

Jeez, Elsa. Who pissed in your cornflakes? Chris just thought it was interesting, and he's telling us why. Get another cup of coffee or something.

Re: “Maggie’s Plan

Goodness, how much did they pay you to write this over-bloated drivel about a bad, at best, mediocre film, and a director who is in no way equal to the qualities you've given her. Comparing Gerwig to Streep in Sophie's Choice? Stating Miller is a director up to the masters? Again, how much were you bribed to write this overcompensating body of misleading the public?
