I am curious how 'Emporium' is, it looks really 50/50 for me. August Rush though looks terrible. Real good suggestions though!

Alex, Dude you are kidding when you say that August Rush deserves a 9/10 right? Right? My friend titled that BS movie in his review 'RUSH out of the theater'. I couldn't walk out during the film because I am too polite but I hated this film so much it put me in a nasty mood. This piece of manipulative crap stole 2 hours of my life!! You must thrive on bad acting, bad cinematography and bad storytelling supported by bad music. I saw this entire story play out in the first five minutes. You actually like Robin Williams playing an evil BONO? C'mon. That kid, oh my god could he be more stiff? How many times do I have to see the Symphony in the Park sign shot? I think the filmmakers cut to that shot about 6 times in 5 minutes. Like we didn't know they were all gonna "meet happy" in the park during the symphony? Unbelievable. Lowest common denominator. This film is handled with the deft touch of bulldozer. I have been writing movie reviews for 11 years now and this thing was one of the all time worst. The entire film played out so false and incidently everyone I ran into after the film seemed to have similar sentiments. Anyway not to be too harsh but I am calling your bluff on a bloated piece of Hollywood crap. WORST FILM OF 2007! But on another note there were some really great films at SDFF '07, by the looks of the bolded films in your blog I would have to guess you missed many of them. Best to see the big films that will be screening at the mall in Colorado Springs like; Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, because that work of art will not be easy to track down in every theater and rental shop in the world. "Although you won't care much about this fest unless you live in Denver" Oh and if you want to dog the Starz Denver Film Festival in it's 30th year by the preceding statement, why don't you also dog on David Ansen head film critic of Newsweek or maybe the critic from Variety, or the RABBI from the Rabbi report or the many Festival Directors, Managers, Directors, Actors, Sales Reps that attended this year from around the world. You my friend are kind of foolish.
