Gratuitous Review Quotes

“Lucas and Moore don’t bother to come up with a single funny joke. Instead they apparently hope that combining racist and sexist insults with unfocused mayhem will be diversion enough.” – Elizabeth Weitzman, N.Y. Daily News

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone ralph in super-slo-mo while riding a mechanical bull before, so kudos for originality there, I guess.” – Kyle Smith, N.Y. Post

Armchair Analysis: I wish the writers at Jezebel would focus on stopping recycled movies like this from being made instead of blaming Justin Halpern for the lack of female writers on TV.

Gratuitous Review Quotes

“Not awful, not wonderful, Jack the Giant Slayer is a midrange fairy tale epic that’s a lot more ho-hum than fee-fi-fo-fum.” – Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor

“Although it often feels there’s more of mechanics than the muse keeping Jack the Giant Slayer going, this sprightly fairy tale reworking is full of beans, smartly written and packs plenty of fun.” – Linda Barnard, Toronto Sun

Armchair Analysis: Okay, so I was all set to give this movie a chance, because it was directed by Bryan Singer and written by Christopher McQuarrie (among others). Plus, it stars Ewan McGregor and Nicholas Hoult, who has a bright future ahead of him. But then I caught that one stupid line in the TV commercial that has just been rattling around in my head like a BB in a tin can – “ARE YOU READY?” Can we please stop this? Stop using silly modern slang and catchphrases in fantasy movies, please. Thanks.

Armchair Analysis: I’m not going to see this yet, because I want to wait for The Last Exorcist III: Seriously, This Is The Last One to come out next year so I can watch them in a row.
