the half a star missing on cmbb was for lack of womens in the film i recall.

Yeah, that was probably one of the most ridiculous things he's ever put in a review. Along with randomly citing "its relentlessness" as a weakness, with no explanation.

"There Will Be Blood" is the kind of film that is easily called great. I am not sure of its greatness. It was filmed in the same area of Texas used by "No Country for Old Men," and that is a great film, and a perfect one. But "There Will Be Blood" is not perfect, and in its imperfections (its unbending characters, its lack of women or any reflection of ordinary society, its ending, its relentlessness) we may see its reach exceeding its grasp. Which is not a dishonorable thing.

Did anyone see this review: The Master Loses Control of Its Flock

Looks like Rex Reed is trying to do his best Armond White impersonation.

I pulled out the only part of that review you need to read to confirm its invalidation:

It might not even be the worst movie ever made, depending on how you feel about such hollow, juvenile and superficial trash as I  ♥ Huckabees, Brewster McCloud, Punch-Drunk Love, Mulholland Drive, The Royal Tenenbaums, Lost Highway, Being John Malkovich, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Wouldn't we be disappointed if this were not polarizing, though? I know I would be.

Sure but only if it's polarizing among smart critics/ppl. Morons hating it is a given and irrelevant.

I'm seeing this on Sunday with my younger sister to expand her cultural horizons. (And yes, I've waited this long, so I can wait an extra two days.) Going to the newly renovated Uptown Theatre (re-opened a week ago), which is the only place it's playing.

It looks like I will probably never see The Master in 70mm.

Look no pressure on you guys, but if I lived in the States, I would definitely fly to a city playing The Master in 70mm, in fact I would have already flown to NY and seen it 5 times by now, just saying..

Lost ended here at the same time as the US. And it was shit.

You should've said if you were in Australia you wouldn't fly anywhere cos it costs a million dollars.. which thankfully is what we make in an hour, but I'd still rather not spend it out of principle.

Edit: Heywood has enlightened me as to the reference you were making, well done. Could've been less ambiguous.

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Best part:

Are you the type of person who loves to play the contrarian, and who would delight in telling all your obnoxious friends how amazingly overrated you find that pretentious garbage everyone won't shut up about?

There is a pig in shit. And then there is a pig who accidentally wanders into the fecal storage area of a shit-processing plant. You will be the latter.

SEE IT. You are gonna get the chance to be SUCH A DICK about it.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.
