Speed Round!

Posted on

All but one of these questions has been asked more than once. Guess which.

Have you ever panned a movie that’s loved by all the other critics? Does it make you feel like maybe you just don’t get it? — Rob Golden

Yes. Pirates of the Caribbean. I didn’t get it!

Are you ever worried that you’ll give a movie a good review and other critics will hate it? — Emily Tilles

See, I prefer to think of the movies I love that others don’t as great discoveries awaiting a more enlightened world.

Ever get the temptation to leave a screening midway through? — George Schmidt

Sure. You bet. How about Radio? But of course I stay.

Let’s say you’re at a screening and nature calls. Would missing a few minutes necessitate a second viewing? — Greg Douglass

No. Nature never calls a critic on duty.

Are there any good movies with a colon in the title? — Phil Fenster

How about an okay movie with a good colon? Mission: Impossible 2.
