New York Observer has unceremoniously kicked Rex Reed to the curb.

Darn.

A.O. Scott is on a roll lately with his brutal reviews of recent blockbusters, including The Mummy and Pirates of the Caribbean.

For no particular reason, the New York Times presents its top 25 films of the century so far, with some input from Richard Linklater, Ava Duvernay, Guillermo del Toro, and others.

They also present some top 10s of the same period from a disparate group of directors, including Denis Villeneuve, Sofia Coppola, and... Brett Ratner!

He picks two Jonathan Glazer movies :shock:

(Paul Feig's list is actually the real runt of the litter here.)

Poor choice of a Pixar film - I already posted my disappointment elsewhere, but it felt gooey and fatally simplistic given its ambitions. I didn't think it was a patch on Wall•E or Up.

Munich was also a bit underwhelming. Too bad one of them refused to put A.I. down.

I like Judd Apatow, but I feel like he's more suited for TV work (The Larry Sanders Show, Freaks and Geeks).

They want me to pay $25-$50 for a chance to POSSIBLY win a Blu-Ray or Blu Rays? You can freaking buy some for less than that on Amazon. And with free shipping you're obviously guaranteed it below the price you'd be paying on this useless Patreon.

I understand Patreon and why it exists but seriously?

Oof, just let yourself perish Slant. This isn't a good look.

Well, I think it's for people with lots of disposable income who want to contribute a larger sum to Slant each month to keep it running, not as a 1:1 exchange for the chance to win a blu-ray.

But that having been said, I never read Slant and won't miss it when it's gone.

It's more the paltry $158 a month from 26 readers that makes me cringe. It's like in high school, what happens if you throw a party and no one comes?

On the upside, it makes winning the blu-ray drawing easy if you're the only one contributing \:D/
