Re: “Never Seen It: Watching Close Encounters of the Third Kind with Filmmaker Ben Siler

This film is a masterpiece, anyone who doesn't recognize that should reconsider their career as a film critic. Period.

Re: “Justice League

@Jack:

Uhm. Yeah. Chris isn't going to do that. Continuing his mocking bullet style from the article:

- Reading is hard. Even when there's lots of pictures. This is why he reviews movies.
- He's clearly not a "fan" and never will be. "Source material" isn't relevant to film critics generally, and this one specifically.
- Instead of giving a thoughtful and reasoned critique like a responsible journalist - even a film critic - would do, he just takes "pot shots" using this bullet style, and then blames the film for inviting such a horrid and virtually meaningless writing style, unwilling to take responsibility for his own poor analysis (Cavill is "the worst"...reasons please?, etc.). Hey! Just like I'm doing back at him! Difference is, of course, I'm not a film critic, and am not a paid employee of the otherwise thoughtful and deliberative Memphis Flyer.

Re: “Justice League

Justice league was made more for the comic book fans. If you didn't understand it then you went into it without reading a single comic. One of your points was about the mother boxes being a ripoff when it's actually the infinity stones that came after them. Also they do 2 completely different things. The movie was hugely based off being like the justice league animated series so that's why it was a little choppy but it wasn't as bad as you say it is. The movie is a solid 85 to me out of 100. CGI could have been better but the cast was great, before the next comic movie however, please read the source material before going to see it.

I believe the park's name is Tobey with an e, not Toby.

Re: “Documentary 1948: Creation and Catastrophe Explores the Roots of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Draiman,
So full of bullshit don't know where to begin. Let's put it this way, if a bunch of Native Americans swarm your house kill a couple of your children and throw you into the street, whatcha gonna do, call the cops or God? If the Canaanites bust into your home in Palestine and do the same where is your logic going to lead you?
The issue here is not so much that a crazy mother like you is loose but that our government spends billions to feed your homicidal fantasy.

Re: “Documentary 1948: Creation and Catastrophe Explores the Roots of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria are Jewish territory - No annexation is required.
If anything it may need to be re-incorporated or re-patriated and Israels sovereignty applied and any Arab individuals committing terror and violence will be expelled and their assets confiscated to pay for the damages.
Let me pose an interesting scenario. If you had a country and it was conquered by various foreign powers over a period of time. After many years you have taken back you country and land in various defensive wars. Do you have to officially annex those territories? It was always your territory and by retaking control and possession of your territory it is again your original property and there is no need to annex it.
Jewish roots and rights to all the land of Greater Israel are stronger than ever!
If I am turned out of hearth and home and remain outside one night, I am legally entitled to return the following day. If I suffer for ten, twenty, five thousand or fifty thousand nights, does my right of return stand in inverse relationship to the length of my exile? Quite the contrary; my right to return and recover my freedom becomes stronger in direct proportion to what I have endured, not by virtue of some abstract arithmetic, but because of the nights spent in exile, and because I want my children, to be spared a similar experience.

Re: “Documentary 1948: Creation and Catastrophe Explores the Roots of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

throrough, detailed, clear...definitely a scholarly work, much moreso than history channel type of stuff, and it really tackles the topic of palestinian displacement over this time period with an honestly id never come across. with the amount of content and documentation they included, what they didnt have time for must be huge. given the time the events happened (1947-1949), this film and this project is likely the last time anyone can collect all the testimony and data into one place, the last time somehting like this could be done.

Re: “Music Video Monday: Eric Hughes

Chris, the CD release party is Saturday, October 21 at the Warehouse. Not Friday.
Nonetheless, it is a great honor to be featured, and we certainly do appreciate the help spreading the word! Thanks again!

Re: “Trafficked Gets Benefit Premiere In Memphis

There is no basically about it. They are locked in, beat, and doing it against their will. A brothel is a place that houses prostitutes, not slaves.

Re: “Baby Driver

Mainly, I'm just making sure I've got our new log-in process for comments down, but, as is so often the case, I find your reviews to be the go-to ones on just about every movie that comes down the pike. Where else can a reader get this kind of background? You da man.
