Armond White loves Borzage and Demy. Great man.

And Altman, Renoir, Godard, De Palma and Spielberg. He has taste certainly, but I think it's his writing that gets in the way.

Demond White strikes again.  Are the people that run RT unable to see that he's a FLY, I mean Troll, that just goes against the popular opinion to feed his "hit number" on his website.  To give Up and Wall-E negative reviews is beyound me.  sure, I understand people have different opinions, but to write a review about Jonah Hex, and spend most of it ripping on Toy story 3, show's his true intentions.

Both Up and Wall-E fall flat in their second halves. Jus' saying.
Not to defend White though, who seems to make up his mind on a film before seeing it and then finds ludicrous arguments to defend his choice for a negative review.

I like how he did the special effects in District 9. Not sure about the story. But since Boyen and Walsh wrote it anyway so it seems like it could work.

And GDT has already done a lot of design work. I'd be excited to see how he works with the real/CGI effects.

I'm always amused by films being in production without actually having a director, I saw some pictures of the Hobbit sets being built. <3 Hollywood.

Armond's Toy Story 3 review makes me miss skjerva.

Whatever happened to him?  We disagreed on virtually everything but I still loved reading his takes on various subjects.
Ive lied to men who wear belts. Ive lied to men who wear suspenders. But Id never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.

So, C Dub, somewhere Mr. Hutch is grieving, right? I'm upset too, Amanda is a damn pretty girl, and mighty talented when given the right material.
