Factory fresh and self important, the two Bens were scripted from birth to luck into some plum gig like the latest incarnation of the classic “Siskel & Ebert” show. I say, “Skip it!”
I reached my boiling point when they proclaimed, “Skip ‘Synecdoche, New York’ because WE didn’t understand it.”
Look, a number of respected critics didn’t like the film, but they came to it with knowldege and depth. That’s all we ask.
If I want to see nonprofessionals review films, I’ll watch “Movie Mob,” on ReelzChannel where authentic viewers (known by their screen names) send webcam commentary on the latest major releases. Just a few of my favorite personalities are: cool duo Robin+boywonder, Smurf loving blacknerd, accented Brit_twins, and perpetual winner makemebad.
Their review of “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” was so hilarious, I fell off the couch.
No sound bites here.
