"...The mystery that Salinger attempts to solve has nothing to do with how the writer captured on the page musings that speak to every new generation of sentient human beings and how his command of language stripped sentences and paragraphs to their perfect necessities and voice. The mystery that Salerno wants to answer is why Salinger willingly jumped off the fame juggernaut, resigned from being a public figure, and wrote voraciously with no desire to publish..."
"...It's work enough for neophytes to sort out who's who – in Montana land and the mortal plane – and I won't pretend to understand the phenomenon; it surely boils down to some combination of commercial savvy; Cyrus' sweet, uncomplicated charisma; and a tween market hungering for a happy compromise between relatability and wish fulfillment. In any case, for this, the first nonconcert feature outing for the Montana juggernaut, there was never any doubt that the audience would come..."
"...Those looking to catch a glimpse of the 20th century’s most infamous and raggedy madman-cum-tycoon during his obsessive-compulsive final days overlooking the Vegas strip with Kleenex-boxed feet and Guinness-record fingernails will have to sate their curiousity elsewhere. Scorsese's exhilarating rocket of a biopic focuses not on the decline of Howard Hughes (although the twitches and tics that finally brought him fully into the grip of lunacy escalate throughout), but on the man’s rise and eventual plateau, his loves won, lost, and discarded, and the indomitable blue-steel drive that made Hughes Aircraft the flawed juggernaut that it was..."
"...There's nothing you wouldn't expect (with the possible exception of live-action Hasselhoff) and everything you would: pernicious meddling by next-door nemesis Squidward (Bumpass); musical hijinks at Goofy Goober's Ice Cream Party Boat; and little bits of wry wit (and a decent soundtrack, with Wilco, Ween, the Flaming Lips, and much more, thanks to music supervisor Karyn Rachtman) to keep adult viewers from clawing out their eyes. Is it good? Is it bad? Does it matter either way? Parents, prepare to be steamrolled by the SpongeBob merchandising juggernaut..."
"...Watching a clip of the Giants hosting a long-ago episode of something called "Postmodern MTV" – featuring videos by the Replacements and PiL – is enough to make me want to cry for what might have been. In the best sequence, cultural critic Gina Arnold and others argue quite reasonably that unassuming little TMBG launched the juggernaut of "alternative" music..."
"...It lacks the one-two sucker punch of the original, but that's hardly going to be news. Where Scream 3 triumphs is in its wacky, take-no-prisoners, I Am a Juggernaut of Terror, Hee, Hee attitude, which wisely makes room for some downright surreal moments amongst the carnage..."
"...And the Friar's Roast appearance that blew up in Ted Danson's (black)face? Yep, that was Bruce, too. As the comic juggernaut behind innumerable television benefits, tributes, and award shows like the Oscars, Bruce Vilanch “has given more lines to celebrities than a Hollywood coke dealer” -- or so quipped actor Nathan Lane..."
"...His golden-lighted, amber-waves-of-grain patriotism (and there is much of it, usually in slow motion, always accompanied by elegiac music) begins to grate about 10 minutes into the film, but if you look at it as a bizarre comic element it's that much easier to stomach. No one in his or her right mind is going to take this juggernaut explode-o-thon seriously, of course, but as far as popcorn-grubbing eye candy with deafening sound and plenty of cheeseball Aerosmith tuneage (and progeny), it's great fun..."
"...For his part, Soderbergh keeps the camera moving, never allowing it to rest too long on Gray's haggard face. This flurry of motion in what is essentially a one-man, one-character, static stage play -- along with the director's clever use of offbeat lenses and challenging lighting arrays -- keeps Gray's Anatomy from bogging down in itself and becoming the ennui-inducing juggernaut the performer's detractors have so often hinted at..."
"...Starring: Denzel Washington, Gene Hackman, George Dzundza, Viggo Mortensen, James Gandolfini, Matt Craven and Jason Robards. Submarines hold a near-mythic place in the pantheon of Great American Male Film Fantasies, and this juggernaut of a movie plays right into these childlike fantasies of the great submariner ships..."
"...Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Arnold, Tia Carrere, Bill Paxton, Art Malik and Charlton Heston. James Cameron only makes big movies, and, at a rumored $110 million-plus, this is one of the biggest: a gargantuan Hollywood juggernaut so crammed full of bullets, bombs, and bloodshed, your head soon feels like Italy and Brazil used it for a post-World Cup grudge match..."
"...There's still another hour left in the film at this point, but why bother going into it here? Hark's script, like many of Hark's films, is a convoluted mess, rife with weird inconsistencies and contrivances, but nevertheless constantly steamrolling ahead like some unstoppable Dr. Seussian juggernaut..."
"...Trying to be everything to everybody rarely, if ever, works, and Last Action Hero is a textbook case in point. Borrowing heavily from Woody Allen's Purple Rose of Cairo, professional action director McTiernan has crafted a massive juggernaut of a film, overflowing with breathtaking stunts, witty one-liners, and well-chosen cameos..."
"...Matson BelleGoodbye Juggernaut..."
"...The only time this Beauty and the Beast comes close to conveying any real magic, however, comes when Belle agrees to dance with her captor in return for allowing a visit to her family one last time. The majestic sweep of their movement across the castle floor harkens back to the groundbreaking scene in the 1991 animated movie that jumpstarted the Disney Studios juggernaut in the Nineties..."
"...Behold the weepie that has its own actors snotting into their sleeves. I’m casting no stones here: The quality-assurance boast of that monster-hit stage musical Les Misérables (itself based on Victor Hugo’s 1862 juggernaut novel) might as well be “Successfully Wringing Tears Since 1985!” – and I’ll be damned if it hasn’t wrung buckets out of me since I was old enough to buy a cassette tape of the original Broadway cast recording..."
"...LENELLE MOÏSE Check this intense Haitian-American queer writer/juggernaut, yo. Thu., May 10, 7pm..."
"...Another faux found-footage film in the weak tradition of the Paranormal Activity juggernaut, The Devil Inside trades suburban creepiness for exorcisms gone wrong, Roman Catholic pageantry, and some extremely memorable and spine-wracking writhing courtesy of UK contortion artist Pixie Le Knot. Apart from the latter, however, this is a strictly Catholic-high-school-quality horror show...."
"...She is, in other words, "a juggernaut of energy and creativity," as performer and frequent collaborator Paul Soileau puts it – one who throws down with and goes out on a limb for her beloved queer community on a regular basis. Shoemaker is that ultrarare mix of inspired artist and generous, committed activist: "She's very aware of protecting and educating and enhancing her community," says Soileau..."
"...One imagines the British actor broke a sweat trying to break this character, but it doesn’t show: His performance seems effortless, so commanding is it, careening from cocksure boy genius to bellowing, beleaguered director to ice-in-his-veins slayer of baby dragons such as disposable actors and mewling rival suitors (the bigger dragons, Welles' fraught Hollywood career would later prove, would be more difficult). Efron, a young actor best known for his breakout role in the High School Musical juggernaut, brings a lively physicality to the film, but it’s a tricky part: Richard may be trying to find himself, but the audience is simply trying to find a rough psychological sketch of the guy..."
