    Hey, who’s the blonde taking Robert’s place?!

    With Cate Blanchett in it, I’ll see it. She’s a real chameleon, looking different in nearly every movie I’ve seen her in. Thanks, Robert.

  2. Insightful, smart and observant, as always, Robert. (And I like the new look. It suits you well.)

    I think it helps to have a bit of a contrary nature when viewing movies; lots of folks let expectations dampen their enjoyment of a film. What do the movies “The Shining,” “Psycho,” “Bonnie and Clyde,” and “Blade Runner” have in common? They all initially got harsh treatment from critics.

    Thanks, Robert.

    Very good review Robert of this crazy, hard to follow movie. It wasn’t a great movie, but the acting was good, and it did keep my attention and keep me entertained. (I very much like your new professional hair style)

    Thank you so much Robert. I saw this movie because of your review and it is one of the best and most unstereotypical movies I have seen in ages. I loved it. “You are a creative person Bernadette. If you aren’t creating, you’re a menace to society.”
