It's the most mad I had ever gotten at one of these movies.

Personal Quotes (3)

[on Cars 2 (2011)] When you got a movie where Larry the Cable Guy has the most screen time in a movie with voices of Bruce Campbell and Franco Nero...then, you've got some problems.
How is it that studios are so willing to back the "R" rated raunchy comedy, yet become completely neutered when it comes to slasher films? The PG-13 slasher film is the same thing as releasing a porn without sex, or a comedy without the funny parts. It makes no sense and people should not support that.
I think a film critic can be a good film maker, I don't see why not. I think if a critic makes a movie, they should make a movie that they themselves want to see. That's what I did. Whether they were any good is debatable, but they're what I wanted to see at the time.
