i rewatchedpostcards from the edgeover new 97 minutes it is the rarest of rare things: a film that could've been longer.

Bette better win her competitive Tony for this.The fact that they snubbed her for the one woman show a couple years ago was ridic.

"Here's a list of highly praised pop culture works of the past year,some of which you surely loved,and I'm gonna tell you why they're all terrible!"The world needs more of those pieces right now!

Ridley: Um...WOW.You've made some very good to great movies (Alien,Blade Runner,Thelma and Louise,The Martian) and all,but you read the shooting script for Prometheus and didn't back out.Even if we forgive that?You saw the mixed reaction to the original and STILL didn't back out of the sequel.There's a term,Ridley,for people (ESPECIALLY perceived artistic hallmarks of the industry) who aren't part of the solution...

a) It's one of my favorite modern film musicals and b) advocating a REMAKE?;-)

Someone needs to get Cynthia Erivo a leading role in a big-screen musical stat.I can see her handily walking off with a Best Actress Oscar for the right vehicle.

Where is the "films that take place in 2017?"link?

FOREVER -- eeep.I'm so sorry.I somehow didn't include it.have edited the's the first link after the jump at The Independent.

Mr Scott is right- critics over use the word "masterpiece","iconic"and my favorite "visionary director"

January 3,2017 | Unregistered CommenterJaragon

The word "masterpiece"is definitely overused.But not nearly as much as the word "overrated."That article was deeply annoying.

January 4,2017 | Unregistered CommenterJJ

Jaragon -- my all time favorite most ridiculous abuse of "visionary directory"was when people kept applying it to Zach Snyder for WATCHMEN when he was literally recreating exact compositions that a stronger artist had dreamt up in comic books to much acclaim.
