Perhaps movie reviewer Cranky Hanke selected the headline blended into a photo of George Clooney leading off the review of the movie “Hail, Caesar!” [“Cranky Hanke Reviews & Listings,” Feb. 10, Xpress].
It stated, “Pick of the Week” when it should have said, “Pick of the Weak.”
Along with the other local movie critics, Ken raved about the worst movie I have ever seen in my entire life, and that covers about seven decades.
I have trusted Ken’s judgment totally since retiring to Asheville in December of 2000.
Over that entire period, he misled me only once — until this debacle.
This movie had no plot, a pathetic script, no viable dialogue, insane costumes and came across as a very bad satire.
Please tell Mr. Hanke to approach future reviews with more discretion before he loses all of his faithful readers. In the future, I will use extreme caution in considering his selections.
