Re: “Babe in the City

I made the movie and it's fun to comment on comments, especially when its your movie. To put this in the same sentence as Drugstore and Idaho, 2 films that arguably could/should be on most top lists of all time, is kind of laughable. But I think it holds its own against the 3rd season of Cops pretty well.

Re: “Babe in the City

Showstopper, "I am sure Allison has seen them" is literally the nicest thing you've ever said to me. I'll be curious to hear what you think of the movie.

Re: “Babe in the City

The films mentioned by the previous comments are excellent (I am sure Allison has seen them) this on the other hand, well...Portland, a Baldwin (who lives here I think) and hipster "stereotypes"....(are they stereotypes if they are often true? )? Sounds lame, but I will see it if only to confirm it is exactly what it sounds like it is. An easy portrayal of a culture of parody without intent?

Re: “Babe in the City

Drugstore Cowboy also has some great shots of mid 80 s Portland. Or, you can watch the first 3 seasons of COPS, which were all shot in Portland/SW Washington

Re: “Babe in the City

"...the cityscapes and landmarks the prettiest onscreen representation of our city outside of Portlandia's opening credits."

wow, the author of this review really needs to see some more movies. maybe start with one called "My Own Private Idaho."

Re: “Going, Not Quite Boldly

Why would you want to publish anything to be read by the denizens of the shithole you imagine Portland to be? Their addled hipster brains can't comprehend your urban cool. London again? Aren't you missing some kind of excruciatingly authentic urban festival with actual black people in NOLA?

Re: “Good Grief, Gatsby

Sounds like dis review was about how the author was poor in high school and never got invited to sweet-as-balls rich people parties and was stuck home reading nerdy books and writin stupid papers about them.

Re: “Good Grief, Gatsby

Good review. I found the film lacking and feel Gatsby was butchered somewhat

Re: “Good Grief, Gatsby

If you go into a film looking for things to bitch about you're not a film lover or a film critic, you're a cynical asshole. Jar Jar Binks are you fucking kidding me?

"we're treated to 3D lines of text from the novel that drift across the screen like the effluvia of the world's most pretentious skywriter."

Hallett, you're the best.
