    Hi Casey,
    In your review of Margaret, you spell Lonergan's name correctly at first, then consistently call him "Lonegan." May be worth a quick edit.

    As in most cases, the book is far better than the movie - or in this case, better than the docudrama, KILLING LINCOLN which, frankly, was awful. But, if you had read the book I believe your commits would of reflected the fact that O'Reilly provided a great deal of little known info about Booth; all of which, were omitted in the docudrama. It's too bad because this would of made the feature much more interesting.

    I think you meant Killing Lincoln and not Killing Netflix at the end of your review.

    Good review of "A Good Day to Die Hard." It was accurate, sadly. I think you also could have pointed out how absurd and implausible a couple of the action sequences were, but I won't hold that against you. I certainly never found myself laughing at anything that happened in the original, unlike this movie.

    Hi Casey, Top review of the eagerly awaited Sinful Nuns of Saint Valentine, but thought i'd mention that twice in the review you compare it to 'Ken Loach's The Devils'. As we all know, Ken Russell directed The Devils not Loach, though it might have been fun if he had. Cheers, Neil.

    Just a minor correction: Ken Russell made The Devils, not Ken Loach.

    Hi, just a quick note on That Thing You Do; while you're correct the film was shot using spherical lenses, it not being a scope feature, there would be no reason to use anamorphic lenses. All "flat" (acadamy, 1.85, etc) pictures are lensed spherically.

    Someone may have already pointed this out to you, but the reason the aspect ratio drastically shifts during that one moment in Life of Pi is solely so that Ang Lee could recreate the book's cover. See attached. I thought it was an odd and self-serving decision. For those who knew, it was a "Oh, that was clever, I guess" moment and for those who didn't, it was baffling.

    You also state in your review that 99% of the population in the film should stop begging for handouts from the 1% who work, build, and produce. If one should actually read the book, one would find out that anyone in the world of Atlas Shrugged could become a creator and innovator--this is one of the most optimistic aspects of the entire novel. You also suggest that the philosophy of Objectivism is questionable at best, if not completely flawed without ever explaining why or how. Now, to be as honest as possible, I've personally looked for flaws in Objectivism and have found none. By spending lots of time researching the aspects that some might consider "weak spots", there was always an explanation or a premise to counter any philosophical attack against it, and there was always a flaw in the criticisms on Objectivism's alleged weaknesses. Casey, I highly recommend that you read the book--or, if you've already read it, read it again!

    Having read and studied Atlas Shrugged, I can safely admit that the first two film adaptations pale in comparison to its source material. The films, as you say, do have a made-for-TV appearance, and the CGI trains are very unrealistic. But let's not forget the old saying: "The only thing that matters is the story the film is trying to tell." I can get over the fake CGI and made-for-TV lighting. I care about the context of the film. I can tell that you don't have a clear understanding of what Objectivism stands for. It is certainly not a conservative philosophy, for it promotes the spiritual freedom of man via an atheist rejection of the religious principles that tie him down. Objectivism is not a libertarian philosophy because, in its deepest levels, contains moral premises that run counter the libertarian movement, particularly about the issue of self-defense and war. She didn't support Reagan, either.
