Please Richard, update your website! So many of us use iPads or iPhones etc, and your Flash videos are not viewable. Flash is outdated and I'm sure you would like us mobile users to see your reviews too!

Hi Richard,

I don't really agree with the review because I was a bit disappointed by the film. Well, I do agree with the idea that you have to either go with the film or not. I gave it a 5/10, so I didn't hate it but I didn't love it, either.

I read your review on Chicago Sun-Times (I'm a big fan of yours, I think you're very witty and you're one of my inspirations to be a film critic), and even though you give it 4 stars out of 4, I'm earnestly curious as to why this is an 'A' and not an 'A+'?

Anyway, keep up the good work. It's fun to disagree with your views sometimes :)

This proves Mr. Roeper is paid to do good reviews for complete garbage F- movies like this nonsensical trash.

The film was quite a surprise, especially when I went to see it with no expectations, based on bad reviews it got. Maybe because I didn't expect much. It's a beautiful film.

NO NO NO!!!!!! Transendance is nothing more than a mash up of "Wargames", "Her", and the "Cowboy Bepob" episode "Brain Scratch". The show also makes a clear rip from Bepob when Depp if flying in the internet. Rod Sterling and Bradbury would laugh so hard at this movie.

Great, great movie! You'll love this if you enjoy movies that explore the possible results of combining great minds.....visionaries......with technology.

Here's a circumstance where I place value on Richard's review (and Turan) above the consensus, and will invest to see the film. Will advise.
