"On p. 16 of the last FILM CULTURE, Patrick Bauchau says '1962 marks the lowest ebb in U.S. cinema' and on p. 25 Peter Bogdanovich says 'Hatari is among the best pictures of 1962.' Dubious distinction, what? Bogdanovich also says 'Anyone who does not see the beauty and brilliance of this picture (Hatari) is either a fool or a snob, and both are really the same.' Put my name, like Abou Ben Adam's, Peter, on your list, and leave plenty of space underneath for others. I'll regard it as an honor roll when all the names are in."
—Herman G. Weinberg, "Coffee, Brandy, and Cigars," Film Culture, Autumn 1962 (Reprinted in Saint Cinema: Writings on FIlm, 1929-1970)
"Anyone who puts down Hot Tub Time Machine as...whatever, unfunny or not funny enough or insubstantial or that it's only for 35-and-overs is at least somewhat clueless. Or dead inside."
