  1. ‘MANDINGO’ meets ‘BLAZING SADDLES’ and just as decades STALE.

    In this,the 11th hour of POST American takedown, BEWARE the
    offerings of the ‘on board’ Hollywood capstone franchise slum mafia.

    REALLY

  2. I don’t agree, it looks like fun, I in fact LOVEDBlazing Saddles” and it is a comedy classic! This is not a blaxpoitation flick and to dismiss what is a clever melding of genres is petty and totally without insight. Did you watch it? Then “Man With The Iron Fists” was equally patronising – that too was a Quentin Tarantino film via RZA where a black man was in China according to that plot… Please look elsewhere on this website for my initial take on “Django” which I plan to see as soon as it lands in Barbados!

  3. 2012 shows a distinctly average year for films. Nothing really stands out to me as great, from The Academy’s lists of nominees. I thought Skyfall might make the best picture list, but the song was quite boring and makes the top 5. Flight was very good until they didn’t know how to end it. Marigold Hotel was quite brilliant and is the best screenplay I read in 2012.

  4. Not even “Life Of Pi“? “Silver Linings Playbook“??
