Re: “Dense crowds and dubious security practices at the first day of Lollapalooza

Why does Lorde get a free pass on the facts that she cannot really sing live, relies heavily on instrumental and vocal backing tracks, and is completely phony with her "aw shucks" Taylor Swift fake modesty?

Re: “The Boys in the Band

The writer and producer is MART Crowley, not MATT.

Re: “Broken Embraces

What's interesting is that in Spain, Almodovar has lost his luster. He is basically considered an egomaniac who keeps making the same movie over and over. Even more interesting is that in Spain, Broken Embraces ended up on most of the top 10 'worst of' lists as did Cruz's performance.

Re: “List-o-Mania

How do you compile an all-time 100 list and not include "All About Eve"?

Re: “J.R. Jones Declares War on the Popcorn Movie

40 movies on a best-of list is 30 too many.
You dilute the list by including such a high number.
Stick to 10.

Re: “The List: January 7-13, 2009

Wow! Really buying into the whole Lady Gaga hype here, aren't you? She is a pop singer and not a very original one. Her pronouncements are as pre-fabricated and transparent as she is. I was embarrassed to read the assessment of her "Bad Romance" video and 'woman empowerment' spiel. She is in it for the money, period.

Re: “Nine

Contrary to what the review states, "Be italian" is Fergie's song in the film. The song that Kate Hudson performs is called "Cinema Italiano" - completely different songs in every sense.
