The job of a critic is to criticize. I am more of a movie compliment-er. My column finds good things to say about all your favorite and non-favorite movies.
"Inglorious Basterds" - except for the obvious typo in the title, is my favorite movie of the year, maybe for the last 10 years. Chock full of Tarantino goodies, this movie will be analyzed forever.
"Public Enemy" maybe my second favorite of the year. Johnny Depp rules as Dillinger to my surprise. He's done some cool shit but this is the best Depp. Great use of sound in the gunfights - very convincing.
"Extract" another gem from Mike Judge, maybe the best comedy director working.
That's all from the movie compliment-er, join me the next time I can afford to go to the movies.
