    Methinks the critic doth protest too much.

    Eh. This film is "nice" at best, Ty. In my humble opinion of course. It's extremely clever, handsomely shot, and genuinely romantic when it wants to be -- but in the end the film is just a homage to c more »

    Well, I guess if critics liked films like 'Melancholia,' they wouldn't be able to relate to most readers? Is that the logic here? But that doesn't make sense to me, especially since you liked the mess more »

    I think Ty Burr doth protest a little too much over the ending. There actually was a climax, it was one of the last flashbacks, which revealed what really sent Martha running from the farm (I won't sa more »

    So the liberal guy needed to be less wimpy and fight back? That's not much of a deeper message, bro. If anything you seem to be highlighting a central hypocrisy inherent in this version's message, tho more »

    Eh, I'm definitely seeing it anyway. Critics are absolute nincompoops when it comes to reviewing horror films, and I'm afraid The Boston Globe's track record is no exception. more »

    ...so why did you only give it 3 stars?

    Patronizing review for a masterpiece by one of the 5 best directors of all time. more »

    Oh my god, god BLESS you for referencing that wonderful show. I thought I was the only person on the planet who watched it. :) more »

    I thought it was wonderful, actually. Helps to be a LOST fan. more »

    Emmy Voters earned more respect this year by booting True Blood, which is some of the worst trash I've ever seen imho (I'm not a big Alan Ball fan...). Now what about Dexter. Dexter has gotten worse e more »

    Holy cow, it's BUNK at the end of the trailer!!

    Sadly, this doesn't look like the kind of movie where we'll get to see him burn holes in his pants.

    Yeah, I've been hearing the same thing (that this sucks) from everyone. I'm really disappointed and depressed. Carpenter's first film in 10 years, I had such high hopes. What happened? :( more »

    Interesting that instead of coming up with coherent counter-arguments, Bay fans resort to personal attacks on Morris. That puts a big capital L on their foreheads. And I get that some people only hang more »

    This will not get you buckets of love from Malick fans, but it's an honest and well-thought-out review. Nevertheless, I'll go see this with an open mind. more »

    Thank you for giving 4 stars to this wonderful, incredible film. I saw it at the NYFF and thought - and still think - that it is one of the best films I'd ever seen. more »

    This is one of those rare instances in which I feel 3 and 1/2 stars simply isn't enough...still, fantastic review, much better than I'm used to reading. Personally, I preferred "Uncle Boonmee," which more »

    With all due respect, this is one of the worst reviews I've read in some time, and EXTREMELY unhelpful. You have the film a scathing one and a half stars and barely explain why. Audiences are absolute more »

    This is a thoughtful and good review. That said, I'm not sure what you mean by calling A Tale of Two Sisters "junk." Used in either a good or bad context I don't see how it can be applied at all; it's more »

    Sorry, Ty, but even as a massive Jane Eyre fan I don't think you could pay me to see this one. For one thing, any movie that casts Judi Dench in yet ANOTHER 19th century period piece is already desper more »
