Movie-yaks of the week... As I said, I don’t pretend to be Roger Ebert or Richard Roeper, nor do I want to be(come) them. Also, as a cheapskate, I go a cheap cinema that lies at the end of the new release line (4 this week – see below), which means I always end up seeing a new release after virtually all the meant-to-be trendy people have been at it. So, read this at your chosen leisure, if you wish. - While I am impressed with the cast line-up for American Hustle, the elements and the story leave me indifferent. How should I describe it? It is sordid yet smart. This kind of social milieu doesn’t attract me at all (well, it didn’t entice me back when – the scenario is based on real life events; and, nothing has changed). But, objectively, it is extremely well-done. Would I care to see it again? No. Oh, I did see a few beefy bros that look nice to me. - My favourite of the 4 movies of the week is The Monuments Men.

The Dark Knight is on. My daughter said 'Hey, I think I've eaten in that restaurant'. Looked up the details on filming. Forgot that it was filmed in Chicago. Now I have to go watch it again! :) See the following notes from Wikipedia... "Warner Bros. chose to film in Chicago for 13 weeks, because Nolan had a "truly remarkable experience" filming part of Batman Begins there. Instead of using the Chicago Board of Trade Building as the location for the headquarters of Wayne Enterprises, as Batman Begins did, The Dark Knight shows Wayne Enterprises as being headquartered in the Richard J. Daley Center. While filming in Chicago, the film was given the false title Rory's First Kiss to lower the visibility of production, but the local media eventually uncovered the ruse. Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times commented on the absurdity of the technique, "Is there a Bat-fan in the world that doesn't know Rory's First Kiss is actually The Dark Knight, which has been filming in Chicago for weeks?"

You have a better chance of winning the Powerball than the McDonald's Monopoly prize. "You have a better chance of getting struck by lightning while on your way home from purchasing a winning Lotto ticket with your wife, Jessica Alba, the first lady of the United States," Richard Roeper wrote in The Chicago Sun-Times about the 2006 McDonalds Monopoly game. In the 2013 Monopoly game, the odds of finding a winning game piece were 1 in 37,955,000. The odds of finding the exact two matching pieces worth $1 million were approximately 1 in 3,050,412,898! That means you are about 17 times more likely to win the Powerball—with usually a much higher payout than $1 million. Also, the McDonalds Monopoly prize of $1 Million is not paid out in a once-off lump sum payment. It is paid in chunks of $50,000 per year over a period of 20 years, without interest. To find game pieces, you could order any or, if you are desperate to find the rare two, all of the following items on the menu: Premium McWrap, Big Mac, 10 and 20 ...

I think Richard Roeper sums up the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman best.

RIP PSH
God, I hate that movie. Richard Roeper said it best. "It is the Citizen Kane of awful."
If you can swallow the implausibilities of "Labor Day", perhaps you will like it a lot. Noted critic Rex Reed gave it a 4 of 4; and Richard Roeper chimed in with an A minus. But many, many more than they apparently cannot (it's at 38% on the rottentomatoes meter at the moment). And because I'm such a huge, huge fan of Kate Winslet I was able to digest this enormous pile of preposterousness involving a serious crime and a virtually impossible to believe perpetrator played by James Brolin. And it's my new of the year! But--surprise--gotcha! (I think) it's for 2014, out of two! (It was supposed to have been a Christmas release which bamboozled the Golden Globe folks into nominating it for 2013, but today is the day it actually hit theaters). My rating, 3.25, which would've put it at of 142 if it had been a 2013 release. If.

I need to get this off of my chest. Out of an estimated 400 films I've seen this decade, I'm still befuddled of how so many people claim this to be one of the best films in existence. Richard Roeper, Peter Travers, Chris Stuckmann, Jordan Rowe and many others declare this as the best film of 2011. It holds a whopping 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. Before, I was very eager to see it. Afterwards, I left thinking "what the *** is so great about that. it was decent to mediocre at best. That movie is "Drive". This is the most overrated film I have seen this decade. Seriously, I don't get the praise. According to most critics and film enthusiast, this is better than 50/50 or Rise of the Planet of the Apes for 2011... not by a long shot! They should've called this movie "Stare" because that's all they do. Don't get me wrong, there's some good sequences (LOVE the first 10 minutes or so and the soundtrack is freaking awesome!). Also a couple of performances, especially Albert Brooks were incredible but as a whole, it's . ...

Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) will stop at nothing to preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium - but that doesn't stop the people of Earth from trying to get in by any means they can.

Your grinchily cheapskate cinema goer spent just $10 on Tuesday for four flicks. If you wish to know what I think of them, gather 'round. I don't pretend to be a film critic like Leonard Maltin or Richard Roeper (I don't want their jobs, frankly, as I am not interested in all films). These are just my takes. - Free Birds is another one of those flicks that all tree-huggers and vegans would wholeheartedly endorse, as the story is set around a renegade farm turkey named Reggie, and a muscle-bound-grunt named Jake, who is also a turkey. Together, in this buddy adventure *** comedy, the two set out to alter the American Thanksgiving. They used a time machine (a top secret contraption that they hijacked) to go back to the first American Thanksgiving. It's great fun. First-class animation work. Oh, I wasn't surprised that Owen Wilson is the voice behind Reggie, as his je ne sais quoi quality betrays him. ;) - About Time is at least as good as Hope Springs and Enough Said. If you are interested in positive life ...

My number is 5: 1. I prefer talk radio to music. Bob and Tom, WLS - Roe Conn and Richard Roeper, Kim Kommando, etc. My husband doesn't understand this. 2. I have no first cousins on my mom's side of the family. 3. I can juggle. 4. I have a lot of talents that I learned from my dad. I can change the oil in cars. I can change out light fixtures (so far 4 at our house). And I have his sense of humor, sometimes it can be a little on the naughty side. 5. I love electronic gadgets - iPod and iPhone, but still old school enough to record my TV shows on a VCR. Like this post and I will give you a number.

Hearing Richard Roeper, Roe Conn, and Ron Magers bash Garry Meier on WLS today was a new dispicable low level of disgust for Chicago radio. Garry didn't thank Steve, and Steve didn't show up to thank Garry. So they're even. WLS's bashing of Garry was tasteless. Extremely tasteless.
I'm listening to WLS 890 am radio with Roe Kahn and Richard Roeper and they mentioned that Sarah Palin was on the Today show launching her new book.

Movie Binge with Mom: "Twixt" by Francis Ford Coppola sucked, "Mama" was decent, and " Dead Man Down" was amazing. Now on to "Spring Breakers" to see if Richard Roeper was right about it being a good movie.
Oblivion is a decent sci-fi movie with a nice balance of action and plot. You've likely seen most of what this movie does already in other movies. Movie critic Richard Roeper made a great analogy by saying, "This is the sci-fi movie equivalent of a pretty *** good cover band." That pretty accurately summarizes my view; it is pretty good, but others have done the same thing a bit better.
Richard Roeper has announced his best movies of the year, so far, at through three quarters of 2013. Blue Jasmine, Lee Daniels' The Butler, Prisoners, The Spectacular Now, Mud, Black Rock, The Place Beyond The Pines, Short Term 12, and Disconnect. That and more, here:

Richard Roeper breaks down the highs and lows of the third quarter of this year in movies. —
Michael Smith shared this list from New City. There are a lot of vital people on the list, but the rankings are bizarrely random. How is Redbox a "gem" in any sense but cold dollars and crappy movie selections? And putting anyone from that company above all the great artists and programmers on the list seems obscene. And Richard Roeper...seriously? In a town overflowing with fine critics, how does he make the list? Not sure how Mayor Emanuel making it easier for "Transformers" to be filmed here gets him ranked so highly either. Well, there are others to nitpick about, but I am happy to see the invaluable programmers at the Northwest Chicago Film Society, Film Center at the Art Institute, Music Box, Block Cinema and others recognized, along with Olive Films (for still catering to DVD lovers properly), and fine filmmakers like Melika Bass and William Friedkin (anyone who thinks he's past his prime needs to see "Bug" and "Killler Joe" immediately).

Grae Drake, editor of Rotten Tomatoes on the critics general indifference of Man of Steel: “As much as I love and respect our critics at Rotten Tomatoes, I’ve got to say I am shocked. Listen, the movie’s not perfect but…I just cannot fathom it. It was a good movie, you guys.” Gee Grae, do you have stock in Time Warner or something? I thought you were supposed to be objective. Are they all wrong? First, it's good idea to go on Fox Business Channel and convince the most gullible television viewers that an average film is a great film. It might work. But if it doesn't involve a movement to make Sarah Palin Empress of the Universe or designate her the new God, they probably won't rally to your side. And nice job calling out your critics and putting them down for telling the truth. They'll love you for that. As much as I don't particularly care for someone like Richard Roeper, he's probably been doing this longer than you have. And also note Richard Corliss of Time Magazine (published by Time ...

Richard Roeper's 'White House Down' review is highly entertaining! Emmerich back with more trash. I hate him.
Well today I saw the movie Monsters University and many people are just immediately jumping to conclusions that this is going to be a terrible movie because it's a prequel, but turns out this movie was OK, yes it had predictable with most of the items in the story was going to, but at the same time the movie was unpredictable especially the ending of the movie. Pixar did a great job with this movie take place in a college setting and a prequel. Do you so called movie reviewers especially Richard Roeper have any idea how hard it is to make a decent prequel, but at the same time make a college movie child friendly and to make a college movie without making it raunchy? It's a difficult task. This movie isn't better than Monsters Inc., but at least it's funny and heartfelt. I give this movie 4 stars out of five the plot is decent, the characters are great and the jokes are funny because I understand as a college student myself, like on Finals week you see a student holding up three books and studying the page ...
but a commenter did call Richard Roeper a shallow pool of urine for his positive review
I went to see "White House Down" today. Very good film, I recommend it. Jamie was really good in this film, as were Channing Tatum, James Woods and Joey King. Go see it.
Fun listening for Midwestern radio fans this afternoon-- newsman Jim Johnson retiring today after 45 years with WLS--I've been listening to this guy since I was in junior high! Gonna miss his bloopers/ "Jimisms"--happy trails to him!
Last movie I'll watch for the first time in AZ. Haven't heard much about it, but hey, if Richard Roeper likes it...
RICHARD ROEPER: “White House Down,” the second POTUS-in-danger film in three months, is just a big, loud, popcorn movie from Roland Emmerich, director of “Independence Day.” But “Transformers 3” was subtle compared to this nonsense. Emmerich doesn’t flinch as he shamelessly borrows from better movie...
Richard Roeper gave The Heat the highest score of any critic and White House Down the lowest of any critic. No...zero agenda there. None.
So I tried to give Spring Breakers a chance, I did... FOR SHAME any reviewer that gave this horrible waist of two hours I will never get back movie a good review... FOR SHAME! you know who you are, Dave Calhoun of Time Out, Bruce Demara of the Toronto Star, you can go to *** Rick Groen of the Globe and Mail, and what were you thinking Anthony Lane of the New Yorker, I don't even think you watched the movie Tom Charity of CNN.com you whole review sounds like you just read someone else review and made yours up, I will never again trust your opinion Rene Rodriguez of the Miami Herald, Boston has been through a lot so you are forgiven Ty Burr of the Boston Globe, But you're not Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune apparently swimming is the only thing you can do right!, and whats the deal Robert Abele of the Los Angeles Times don't they make movies in LA shouldn't you know something about entertaining people if you work for the newspaper in the entertainment capitol of the world?!

MAN OF STEEL has lots of "supercharged fight scenes that drag on and offer nothing new in the way of special-effects creativity" but "what’s missing from this Superman saga is a sense of lightness, of pop joy" leaving viewers with " an exceptionally unpleasant viewing experience." Although, "the movie finds its true, lofty footing not when it displays Kal-El’s extraordinary powers but when it dramatizes Clark Kent’s roiling humanity. The super part of Man of Steel is just O.K.; but the man part is super." (Richard Roeper, Ty Burr, Ann Hornaday and Richard Corliss.) Never before have I had to use so many other people's words to sum up how I feel about a movie. Man of Steel just left me so confused I guess. Dark is for Batman. Let Superman be fun.

Wow. If that wasn’t the most thrilling championship clincher in Chicago sports history, what was? Michael Jordan’s game-winner against the Utah Jazz in Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals was a moment for the ages — but if the Bulls didn’t win that game,
Well superman falls to No.3 my thoughts is this the reason why it's failed to break box office records is because of the sucky 2006 version of superman returns. So it faces an up hill battle people are hesitant to go and go and watch this one. But it will do good for DVD sales and I think the next one will be a good box office hit because now we know what kind of superman we are getting. I also see this happening to wolverine because of the last wolverine movie wasn't good despite the fact that it leaked online without the special effects on it. Plus they had all these characters in the movie that they didn't do anything with. So I don't see the second one breaking box office records. (John Boy)

On my flight to DC, the jumbo gentleman sitting next to me was sweating profusely onto my arm and leg. On my flight back to Chicago, the svelte (and far more arid) guy sitting next to me took out sanitizing wipes and cleaned everything--seat, headrest, tray, armrests, EVERYTHING. I don't know which situation was crazier, but I'd like to know where the second guy was on the first flight when my arm and leg needed disinfecting.

Man of Steel... (I will try not to include spoilers...) I was a bit disappointed in the film, because it started of as a story of a person, albeit a super person, trying to find himself, and then transitioned to a flat superhero Rocky... By the power of will superman prevails... Maybe it's there is a problem with creating an allegorical film, focused on immensely powerful beings. Personally, I would have liked to see a smaller sampling of the characters super powers and seen more Macbeth-like "tragic hero" in the antagonist... The antagonist was convinced of the righteousness of his actions, but we didn't get to know him well enough to identify with his admirable traits (which obviously the film wanted to do). Instead, he just became a stereotypical evil "bad guy"... Christopher Nolan should have decided... Did he want to created a misguided villain, or more of a simple "good guy/bad guy," Captain America- type film... Making something halfway in between left me with the idea of a flatten (at the end) inc ...
Ok...I saw The Man Of Steel last night and was disappointed. To be fair, this version did go into more detail about Krypton’s history. However, there was very little original here. Modeling Krypton’s technology off of the 1920s American culture and space ships that looked like beetles lacked creativity. Oh, I should mention that Superman did not seem too concerned about all the casualties in downtown when he was punching General Zod through buildings. At the end we get the impression that very few buildings were destroyed since Clark starts working right away for the Daily Planet just like that. Larry Fishburne's character Perry White was very flat and at times the script did not seem to know what to do with his character. The film spent about 3 minutes showing Perry White attempting to rescue a reporter from rubble. Why? What was the point? The fight scenes were terrible with all the CGI. Just let people fight. Bad movie. Wait for the DVD.
RICHARD ROEPER: It’s impossible to imagine any list of the 10 most memorable TV characters of all time that wouldn’t include Tony Soprano.

How true this is. "No good movie is too long and no bad movie is short enough." ---Roger Joseph Ebert (June 18, 1942 – April 4, 2013) was an American film critic, journalist and screenwriter. He was a film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times from 1967 until his death in 2013. In 1975, he was the first film critic to win the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism. As of 2010, his reviews were syndicated to more than 200 newspapers in the United States and abroad. Ebert also published more than 20 books and dozens of collections of reviews. Ebert and Chicago Tribune critic Gene Siskel helped popularize nationally televised film reviewing when they co-hosted the PBS show Sneak Previews, followed by several variously named At the Movies programs. The two verbally sparred and traded humorous barbs while discussing films. They created and trademarked the phrase "Two Thumbs Up," used when both hosts gave the same film a positive review. After Siskel died in 1999, Ebert continued hosting the show with Richard Roeper. In 200 ...
I saw the movie" After Earth", and thought it was GREAT. Why did the critics give it bad reviews?
Richard Roeper just said on WLS that people gave him grief for not liking Man of Steel, then apologized after seeing it because they thought it sucked too. I was excited to see it, but after the trailers, previews & reviews, I've decided not to even waste my time with a bootleg.

FROM THE FOUNDER: We all love movies. We all have different taste in genres of films. Some we like more than others & some absolutely say "no way". Some that are "so bad their good" & others we say *** was Hollywood thinking?" Although the vast majority of Americans go to the movies to be entertained, there are politics in movies & moviemaking too. Sometime we have trouble choosing a film we might want to see (at $10 plus a movie, the last thing we want to do is waste it on a really bad movie) & sometimes we want to know more about it before we pay to see it. Many times we turn to movie critics for just that & get their opinions on the movies we'd like to see. Since the vast majority of movie critics that work for the newspapers/news media are predominantly liberal & liberal leaning in their reviews (such as Roger Ebert, Gene Siskel, Joel Siegel, Peter Travers, Gene Shalit, Andrew Sarris, Leonard Maltin, Rex Reed, Richard Roeper, David Ansen & Kenneth Turan).

"To see a film once and write a review is an absurdity. Yet very few critics ever see a film twice or write about films from a leisurely, thoughtful perspective. The reviews that distinguish most critics, unfortunately, are those slam-bang pans which are easy to write and fun to write and absolutely useless. There's not much in a critic showing off how clever he is at writing silly, supercilious gags about something he hates." —Stanley Kubrick

by Richard Roeper It's really tough to have it both ways.Let's say you want to do a broad, shtick-filled comedy filled with "Three Stooges" humor, e.g., a character is hit head-on by a speeding car, tumbles over the roof, lands with a cringe-inducing thud on the highway — and suffers nary a scratch ...
Many Thanks to Richard Roeper for exposing the wingnut fool known as Ted Nugent (contact info) for being the coward during the Vietnam war that he was:

It was nice of Richard Roeper to take a bullet for Roger Ebert by watching The Last Stand, then reviewing it.
If you’ve got violent-movie fatigue, and you’re too exhausted from real-life carnage on the news to enjoy an R-rated blood-fest in which a number of kills are executed as deliberately funny visual punchlines, you do not want to go anywhere near this film. But if you’re a fan of stylish, relentlessly loud shootouts, questionable plot developments be damned, this is your ticket to weekend escapism. This is what Arnold does best: big-gun violence and one-liner laughs. He’s still got it. - Richard Roeper. 3 stars.
