Re: “An English coming of age tale in Fish Tank

Way to tell your audience the ending to a movie, David. Again. And spoil one of the surprises. Again.

Jesus, man -- learn how to write a movie review. You don't spoil major plot points, you don't touch the ending. Period. How old are you, seriously?

Re: “Tim Tyson's celebrated memoir comes to the big screen

Am I the only person who's noticed that Neil Morris consistently dislikes any African-American-focused films? I've noticed his name perched atop reviews of this sort in the past. Precious, The Blind Side, and now this. Even movies like Invictus and District 9 that deal less head-on with race get some thinly veiled race-related digs from Morris. I was actually surprised that any such film I looked up in his list of reviews at the Indy seemed to express at least some distaste with race-related movies. I wouldn't go as far as to call his reviews racist, but I am at least convinced that he'd generally prefer not to have to watch any racially challenging movies if he could help it.
