[quote]No, just no, who thought this movie needed a reboot?[/quote] Because Hollywood doesn't give two fricks about your moral "no reboot" high ground. They care about all the revenue they can generate from the retread formula. Much less effort than having to come up with an original story. Most ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Spotlight - classictiger on 11/22/15 at 6:47 pm
Great investigative reporting movie. But what you see is what you get. The two hours are spent on uncovering the Catholic Church child sex abuse scandal in Boston, MA and surrounding areas. This leaves little time for any real character development aside from their investment in the story. Given the...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

Saw it Friday afternoon. Really enjoyed it. It dragged a little, but not a lot. If you don't like Amy Schumer then don't go see it. The movie is a vehicle for her brand of comedy and she is in almost every scene (makes sense since she wrote the screenplay). Btw, Tilda Swinton as Amy's boss is gre...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
