Criticwatch Reader Mark did - in response to what Hammond said about Dark Water.


Peter,
C'mon..."Even Hitchcock could not have done better"?
Go watch Dark Water again (assuming you watched it the
first time). Now, find a mirror and TRY to look
yourself in the eye. Peter Hammond: Now there's a guy
who shaves with the lights off.

Dude, you've got some HUGE grapes...I'm sure Hitch is
turning in his grave.

Now, maybe you have a friend named Hitchcock and
that's who you're referring to. But if you're talking
about THE Alfred Hitchcock, you've either not seen any
of his movies, you know nothing about the craft of
movie making or you're smoking a hell of a lot of
crack.

Anyway, Alfred Hitchcock probably made better turds
than Dark Water. While I've never seen a Hitchcock
turd, I'm sure they had more in the way of plot,
character development and suspense than Dark Water.

By the way, when I googled your name, "quote whore"
came up. Hmmm...I wonder why?

Good Evening...
~mark

PETER TRAVERS
(Rolling Stone)
Movie Reviews
(2002 Whore Ranking - #1)
(2003 Whore Ranking – The Peter Travers Whore of the Year Award Created!)
(2004 – 61 Quotes)
(2005 – 65 Quotes)
(2006 – 69 Quotes)
(2007 – 74 Quotes)
(2008 – 67 Quotes)

Travers has long been the Rolling Stone film critic, but wasn't always a shill. For a long time he was a respected writer, but over he last few years it's become more and more clear that he's just out to get Rolling Stone some free publicity. Just like sports bonuses for achievement. Think about it.

Hollywood Elsewhere 2/4/03 (Movie Poop Shoot)
"Does Peter Travers win the flat-footed medal for all eternity? Has he ever written a negative review, or even a mildly critic one? Have you ever seen an ad for the worst movie ever? It'll have a rave from ROLLING STONE, dollars to donuts. I just assume if he likes it and the rest of the quotes are from some AM radio guy in Tulsa, that the movie sucks."Post-Production Polly

"Peter Travers is a wash as a critic now, and probably for all time. Any time his name is within 4 font-size points of the film title, blink and move on."Los Angeles-based indie filmmaker

More bile about Travers
The Daily Ping - 2/3/02
The Simon - Peter Travers Gets Stoned

In Bruges - Get ready to have the rug pulled out from under you!
Charlie Bartlett - Charlie Bartlett is…a winner!
George A. Romero’s Diary of the Dead - I’m giving top props to George A. Romero’s Diary of the Dead! It’s hardly an accident that Stephen King, Quentin Tarantino, Guillermo del Toro, Simon Pegg and Wes Craven recognize Romero as a master. He is.
Stop-Loss - ***1/2 Stop-Loss is the first major movie of the year that touches greatness. Directed with ferocity and feeling by Kimberly Pierce, the emotional battlefield strikes a universal chord that transcends politics and preaching; it's raw and riveting. The film takes us inside the minds and hearts of soldiers and is a powder keg with no agenda except the human one. It’s the real deal.
21 - Odds are you’re going to like this lively spin on the true story of six MIT mathletes who broke the Vegas Bank. It’s a kick to watch Kevin Spacey and a gifted young cast use smarts to deal audiences a winning hand.
Shine a Light - ***1/2 Explosive! Full-out, in-your-face rock & roll. A master director shining his light on the best rock band on the planet. It’s a you-are-there spellbinder.

Redbelt - David Mamet is on his game, and that is a sight to see. At the center of this quiet storm of a movie, Chiwetel Ejiofor confirms his status as one of the best actors anywhere.
Iron Man - Spectacular…Iron Man kicks off summer on a blazing high note and practically dares the competition to measure up. It’s been years since a movie superhero was this fierce and this funny. You can feel the exhilaration.
Speed Racer - Visually the movie is a powerhouse.
Savage Grace - Savagely moving. Just watch and hold your jaw up with both hands. Julianne Moore's tour de force performance is unforgettable.

Get Smart - Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway spark off of each other. There is something delicious about Anne Hathaway.
Wanted - I love it. Sexy, built to thrill.
Hancock - Hugely entertaining! Jason Bateman never makes a false move and a stellar Charlize Theron springs her own bolts from the blue…As for Will Smith, he’s on fire. There’s nothing like a star shining on his highest beams. You follow him anywhere.
The Wackness - Hilarious and heartfelt! A potently witty look at Giuliani Manhattan circa 1994. Josh Peck and Olivia Thirlby are terrific!
Tell No One - Hot-blooded, haunting and packed with the pleasures of the unexpected.
Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson - A mesmerizing film. Johnny Depp narrates with just the right blend of awe and impertinence.
Hellboy II: The Golden Army - Hellboy II is a surprise package of fun and untamed imagination.
The Dark Knight - A thunderbolt is about to rip into the blanket of bland we call summer movies. Feverish action? Check. Dazzling spectacle? Check. Devilish fun? Check.

American Teen - You’ll be totally riveted.
Frozen River - Wonderfully observed.
Pineapple Express - This is like if Superbad met Midnight Run and they had a baby, and then Pulp Fiction and True Romance met Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared and they had a ababy, and by some miracle those babies met – this would be the funny movie they birthed. It slaps a big, fat, goofy smile on your face that lasts for days. Hardcore hilarious and the movie also has a heart. You’ll go limp from laughing!
Bottle Shock - Hugely entertaining! There’s magic in it. Rickman is droll, dazzling perfection. Be on the lookout for Bottle Shock, it’s a winner.
Tropic Thunder - Think of all the ways you can hurt yourself laughing, as in fall down, split your sides, bust a gut, blow your mind. You get it all in Tropic Thunder, a knockout of a comedy that keeps you laughing constantly. It’s also killer smart, lacing combustible action with explosive gags. Major props to Ben Stiller.
Hamlet 2 - Comedy heaven! It’s Steve Coogan’s breakthrough star performance. He’s sensational. Catherine Keener is dazzling. Elisabeth Shue is hilarious playing herself. Amy Poehler has you laughing at hello.
Momma’s Man - An extraordinary movie in every way.

Burn After Reading - A crazy-quilt comic thriller! Brad Pitt is dynamite. George Clooney is hilarious. John Malkovich has never been funnier. His slow burn is priceless. Props to the freshly Oscar-ed Tilda Swinton. It would be no country for movie lover without the Coens.

The Duchess - Keira Knightley scores a knockout…Impurely delicious…There’s a fire in her eyes that won’t be extinguished. Ralph Fiennes is superb.
Ghost Town - The fall movie season achieves comic liftoff with Ghost Town! Ricky Gervais is a master of deadpan hilarity. A comic hero. Tea Leoni is irresistible.
Rachel Getting Married - Rachel Getting Married holds you spellbound! Brimming with stinging laughs and tears, and swirling healing music. Jonathan Demme directs his best film in years. A funny, touching, vital script by Jenny Lumet. Anne Hathaway delivers an acting tour de force. Debra Winger, magnificent, is a volcano of repressed anger. Rosemarie DeWitt is superb…and a heartfelt Bill Irwin. Demme calls Rachel Getting Married a “home movie”. A home run is more like it. Hang on for an emotional powerhouse.
Ballast - Poetic & profound…The one indisputably great film at Sundance ’08
Religulous - Hellishly hilarious!
Flash of Genius - Greg Kinnear takes the star spot in Flash of Genius and rides it to glory. It’s a David-and-Goliath tale that recalls Frank Capra’s Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. Kinnear’s performance is worth cheering.
Body of Lies - A combustible spy thriller. Gritty action laced with simmering drama. DiCaprio’s in top form. Crowe is a live wire.

Changeling - A mesmerizing film that burns in the memory. Angelina Jolie plays the role like a gathering storm, moving from terror to a fierce resolve. And Eastwood, at the peak of his artful powers, tightens the screws of suspense without ever forgetting where the heart of his film lies.
Zack and Miri Make a Porno - Zack and Miri is hysterical! Let the laughs begin! Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks are both terrific and bring out the sweet and spicy best in each other. They rock it!

A Christmas Tale - ***1/2! Magic! A French knockout!
Milk - A total triumph! Brimming with humor and heart. If there’s a better movie around this year with more bristling purpose, I haven’t seen it. An American classic! Explosive. It will pin you to byour seat. Josh Brolin is simply astounding. Gus Van Sant’s best film.
Nobel Son - Pitch-perfect...Goes for the jugular!
Frost/Nixon - One of the year’s best. Frank Langella gives the performance of a lifetime as Nixon in a bone-deep tour de force. Director Ron Howard pulls it off in style.

**********SHAWN EGO ALERT**********
FROM THE COLUMN OF KANSAS CITY STAR’S HEARNE CHRISTOPHER (aka Shawn's Buttboy)
Shawn Edwards' Movie Awards
“The people who actually spend their money at the multiplexes get to vote. It’s not the critics groups that meet in a cave like Bin Laden and come up with all these choices that don’t match mainstream movie taste. We decided to let the people have their vote, because without them, Hollywood wouldn’t exist. Critics don’t drive Hollywood; people drive Hollywood.”

The Kansas City Star[/b]
“The quotes you read of mine, alongside Roger Ebert and all the top-notch critics, has totally helped my career as a film critic and my credibility,” Edwards says. It’s time someone took Edwards down a peg.

Help! Shawn Edwards Wants American Idol
Edwards Responds To Variety’s Timothy Gray
“Here's my deal. My job as a critic is to appreciate the whole spectrum of cinema. As a critic I'm allowed my opinion. I don't understand these guys. I think as a younger guy I have a wider appreciation for all types of film. I mean, everything is not going to be a ‘Citizen Kane.' But I've been quoted on two of the five movies nominated for best picture, too. So my taste can't be all that bad. I liked ‘White Chicks,' and that film did $75 million. I'm not ashamed. I also like ‘Million Dollar Baby' and ‘Ray.' But I don't like everything. I did not like ‘Sideways.'”

Edwards Quits KC Film Circle. Cites Jealousy On Members!
“They're not trying to support the totality of cinema and a diverse viewpoint,” Edwards says. “To me it's nothing but a big clique of film geeks — that's why I resigned. I'm not going to be a part of that. I don't need to be a part of a group that supports negativity.” “If they want to fire arrows at me, that's fine, but I think they're firing arrows out of jealousy and envy,” Edwards counters. “If I like a movie or don't like a movie, fine, who cares? Why are they so concerned over what my views are? I don't understand what's been done that's wrong. I mean movies and quotes go together like 7-Elevens and Slurpees.” The Film Snobs Respond To Edwards

And Edwards Responds Back
I give them credit, at least they're watching,” Edwards quips. “But obviously they didn't pay that close attention because we did a 10 worst (movies) last year and I didn't not like ‘Sideways,' I gave it a three (out of five).” (Editor’s Note: Upon review of the actual tape where Shawn reviews Sideways, he gives it a TWO out of five, NOT THREE!)
