Film Reviews That Matter: 7/6/2012

A collection of film reviews carefully selected and screened for the presence of wit, tact, intelligence, intuitiveness, and a general knowledge of film history and form. In other words, no reviews from aintitcool.com (or any of their other juvenile colleagues).

“Savages”

Directed By Oliver Stone

Written By Shane Salerno, Don Winslow and Oliver Stone.

So there you have it. Some good, some bad, hopefully all thought provoking and informative. I’ll be back later on this week (and the next) with more reviews worth your time. Thank You.

P.S. If you know of any other reviews out there that you think would be worth our time, please let us know in the comment section and please don’t forget to subscribe. Thanks.

  1. Is this whole site seriously a link farm for reviews that you have deemed worthy? This site doesn’t actually produce any content. Plus your twitter feed is basically spam.

  2. Hey. If you’re going to devote a site to the notion that most movie sites/blogs get things wrong, you might want to spell Kenneth Turan’s name right. Glass houses and everything.

  3. Thank for replying Elliott,

    I don’t mean the site to come off as a link farm. I just want to showcase something more than just sequel news and superhero movie trailers.
