Re: “Celebration of Altman's Short Cuts

Following each film showing at the anniversary event, there will be a Q&A with Tess Gallagher, the poet, writer and widow of Raymond Carver, and Mike Kaplan the director of LUCK, TRUST & KETCHUP and associate producer of SHORT CUTS. Gallagher was an important contributor to SHORT CUTS per Altman, and Kaplan, who will also introduce the films, was one of the director's long-time associates, beginning with his acting in BUFFALO BILL AND THE INDIANS. Altman received the fourth of his five directorial Oscar nominations for SHORT CUTS. The entire cast was honored at the Venice FIlm Festival and the Golden Globes with ensemble awards, while Lily Tomlin, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Andie MacDowell either won or were nominated by various critics groups, and Madeleine Stowe won the Best Supporting Actress award from the prestigious National Society of Film Critics.

Re: “TIFF: Movie Heaven

OMG! Get a life! By the way Toronto's latitude is 43 degrees 40' North and Boise is 43 degrees 36' North, making Toronto North of Boise. This article is great.... And you choose to comment on latitude?!?!?

Re: “20 Feet From Stardom: Unsung Heroines

Great review. This is a terrific commemoration of some great and "unsung" performers. I love the "double barrel shotgun of laughter and tears."

(I'm sure I am not the only reader, however, who is just plain tired of the word "iconic." It seems like nowadays everything is iconic. The word has been drained of all meaning. It would be better if everyone just quit using iconic, unless they are only being ironic.)

Re: “What the Hell is a Honey Boo Boo?

Even the commercials for this show make me want to vomit; the Learning Channel should be ashamed for airing this monstrosity. Gotta go puke some more.

Re: “What the Hell is a Honey Boo Boo?

I am English, and allthough we do also have a portion of our society similar to the boo boo family, but as much as I despise this segment of our proud nation, I hole heartedly am beyond belief and don't understand why anyone would broadcast child abuse and total ignorance, in how to bring up a child in today's fast paced and well educated society. For a mother to allow your kids to follow you down the path of morbid obesity, with a blinkered attitude to how unhealthy, materialistic and just wrong, the way she is steering her children through life is disgusting and I feel so sorry for the kids in this program and just realise how lucky my 3 year old really is, not that we spoil or have the means to spoil him just the basic health requirements Funtime and some kind of structure will hopefully ensure he is not expecting a baby at 16, and that he aspires to greater things than a delusional expectation of winning a beauty competition is all I want for him.
Thanks Stu

Re: “Comedy Central's Workaholics Doesn't Work

ive never seen such an out-of-touch review; its so off the mark that i can only assume its a contrived inflammatory review. the author is likely a hermit whose only solace is trolling the countless many who shunned him throughout his life and will undoubtedly enjoy the object of his lambasting. i suppose he has succeeded in this instance. but youre still forever alone, bro...

Re: “Arrested Development, Season Four

Very fair review. I certainly enjoyed the new season, but with all things that are over-hyped, it may have fell a bit short of expectation. Nevertheless, it was great to see the Bluths up to their usual, albeit modern, antics. (Side Note: Kristen Wiig is spot-on as a young Lucile, bravo!)

Who ever posted this crap is hating on the show. Get a life a write about something more interesting than a f*cking suffix.

Re: “What the Hell is a Honey Boo Boo?

Honey Boo Boo is absolutely an abomination! You are more likely to kill more brain cells watching this show than if you were to huff (inhale) all the scotch guard or computer duster in the world! Why would anyone want to be famous for being, fat, obnoxious, and stupid!? What is happening to this country! No more reality television! Lets get back to the classics like Baywatch... I'm only kidding on that last remark.
