DVD Talk review of 'Across the Hall'

I read Jamie S. Rich's DVD review of Across the Hall at http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=40488 and...

I think Jamie's review is ridiculous. He's clearly jaded and bitter - probably a want-to-be filmmaker that never was. I almost skipped this movie, but just watched it and it was much stronger than he made it sound to be. Beautifully shot, well acted...felt very classic. There were some truly beautiful moments in it. I was shocked to find it was made in ONLY 17 DAYS!! Pretty remarkable in that regard. Jamie's review sounds more like he's letting out the anger of his failed career than giving a very good film a competent criticism. WAY too angry. Not so surprising that I've never heard of HIS work...

Re: DVD Talk review of 'Across the Hall'

Your comments seem very antagonistic Jorgo. You come across like a failed film critic who is taking his ire at not having a career on anyone who disagrees with your opinion of a movie. The tell tale sign is that you ignored the arguments against the movie that Jamie puts in his reviews. Instead of pointing out where Jamie is incorrect or where you disagree, you just call him "angry". You then create a whole life for Jamie out of nothing. Sure signs of an unsuccessful writer. (Do an Amazon search on Jamie S. Rich and his books will come up.)

Good luck on getting the career jump started Jorgo.

Thanks for the vigorous defense, John. You're a top editor.

But I'll admit, Jorgo's post made me laugh quite heartily this morning.
