I suppose the person I read was thinking it must've been Kevin specifically because it seems like something Kevin would ask, and because of the expectation that the title of the film must be the entity's name.

I am more likely to enjoy a Mamet film, but a Spielberg film is simultaneously more likely to be adored, or a bore.

The Avengers   5/14/12

I saw The Avengers at the tail end of one of the Marvel Movie Marathons across the country, an exhaustilirating (a word I just made up) event which saw each post-credits tease followed by new opening credits, each film easter-egged on in an inexorable march towards midnight.

Regardless of what happened on the field, the ideas depicted in this film have won out so overwhelmingly that Beane and his ilk have had to move on to new methods of evaluating talent because the ones depicted here have already become the new conventional wisdom.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes   8/18/11

You can't title a film Rise of the Planet of the Apes without giving away the fact that there'll be some bad apes-a-risin' at some point.

Jackass 3D   4/14/11

The public skits, however, are usually the cleverest segments in the film; a staged little person bar fight stands head and shoulders above the rest and brings "The Twilight Zone" to mind.

True Grit   3/09/11

Here they have, for the second time, adapted their film from another film: 1969's John Wayne vehicle of the same name.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1   12/30/10

But there is restraint, also; there are times when the film has to pull back and emphasize things by leaving them alone, and it always knows one from the other.

The Social Network   10/15/10
by Yoda
You know The Social Network is an exceptional film because it's impossible to pin down exactly which part of the production is doing the heavy lifting.

Despicable Me   8/12/10
by Yoda
The gags are incredibly dense in the film's first half, and many of them harken back to classic cartoons.
