Okay, here’s your chance to be the critic — and get some feedback from our own man about the movies, Owen Gleiberman, in the next issue of Entertainment Weekly. In his review of the Josh Hartnett horror vehicle 30 Days of Night, Owen claims “the undead look like they’re pining for a good long nap,” and “the extended time period is vividly conveyed, since the movie itself feels about a month long.” He then deals the film a final blow with a near-failing grade of D. But the movie was No. 1 at the box office this weekend with an estimated $16 million haul. So, what do you think? Was Owen on the money when he chopped the head off this “one-note” splatterfest?
“The Big Chill by way of Jerry Springer” is how Owen describes Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married? in his B- review. But he adds that writer-director-actor Tyler Perry has a “sensitivity to women” that’s a tonic, and lauds the performance of costar Jill Scott. What did you think of the ensemble dramedy — which is still raking in the box-office booty?
Weigh in on Owen’s reviews right now — and be sure to include your email address before you post your comments, which we may pick up in upcoming issues of EW.
