To cheer Matt up: an update on Leonard Snerdley's reviews at Amazon
Leonard's posting has been a mite slow lately, but he's back with a vengence, notching three on Valentine's Day (an ironic nod to his Comic-Book-Guy cult status?) and a masterpiece yesterday on the household utility of the wireless microphone.
Lines that made me laugh out loud:

for the vast majority of you reading this, you'll never see a screenplay published, so perhaps you should consider another hobby or long-term project. This type of thing is mainly for those of us who truly have a future in the business, not the pretenders.
I stumbled on a new IMDB reviewer that entertains as well as informs: jefferson-3. Usually the IMDB features the drecks of critical thought, but this gent fills nearly every one of his 10-star reviews with run-on sentences, tit-fixation, and abysmal grammar. I'm not sure if he suffered a head injury or is just jesting with us. Some of the more cogent entries:Scarface
Fresh off directing his epic 'Hell's Angels' Howard Hughes brings out with Howard Hawks the original Scarface in 1932. ... If one is to compare this movie with the remake in 1983's Scarface there are a lot of differences of course, since these are different times. But throughout the movie you do see similarities and how the movie carries itself, thus you know it is a remake. But hey that's what made the 1983 movie so good. ... It was a great cast assembled and a great director followed every step of arguably one of the smartest men 'Howard Hughes'. This movie doesn't look like your typical 1932 movie, its way ahead of its time and it was put together by the ingenious Howard Hughes.Design for Living
...Its great seeing classic actors in early '30's movies. Gary Cooper was the most handsome of the decade, he was apart of the best movies and was the classic 1930's actor and the biggest. ... There wasn't many movies before its time that dealt with gestures like this movie does, and the ones that do ahead of its time, one can only imagine if they got the idea from the original 'Design for Living' two men and a woman. A woman who falls in love with two men. This is a highly original movie, its very appealing to watch and one of the great movies out of the films of Gary Cooper and one of the great movies one can expect to watch out of the 1930's.Doc Hollywood
Classic comedy for its time even though it was released in 1991 it was like an eighties comedy. Its got the language and the nudity. Julie Warner shows her boobs two different times and wow what a set. One of the best shaped breasts I have ever seen in movies. But other then that this is just a feel-good movie, a movie that resembles love stories of the past. ... After watching that movie it makes you want to fall in love with someone and live in a small town. If I was in that situation I would insistently. ... This is just a great story, a great comedy piece and a great piece of erotica by Julie Warner.A Different Loyalty
The 45 yr. old Sharon Stone's BoobsAction Jackson

It's almost second nature for when Sharon Stone stars in a movie to reveal some nudity. She is 45 years old in this movie and she still is doing it, and my what a rack! She actually reveals her boobs off and on throughout the movie. Which really adds to the Sharon Stone mystique, she's still one of the most beautiful, sexy and talented actress' going.
... I enjoyed the movie, it was a masterpiece of its kind. But really its just great to see Sharon Stone in such a role and yes I am happy she showed us the film goers her boobs once more. Look for Sharon Stone to reveal it all again, this time she is 47 and in far more nude scenes in the upcoming 2006 release of Basic Instinct 2.
Sharon Stone & Vanity's Boobs
First let me say this is one of my favorite action movies from the 1980's. Its got comedy, its got a lot of action and like '80's movies its got a lot of cursing with the word F*** and a lot of sexual driven scenes and nudity by the women. Vanity who was a pretty big name for herself when this movie came out curses the word F*** a lot, as well sings pretty sexy with a see-thru top and even in one scene get fully unclothed and shows her boobs for a while. Sharon Stone who is no stranger to nudity for the cameras, has a couple of nude scenes as well. She just like Vanity in this picture are amazingly sexy and beautiful. ... This movie is just fun, fun, fun. ... Its in my opinion Sharon Stone has the most beautiful naked body in Hollywood!
