Another reason to hate the media

Does anyone here pay attention to movie reviews? Movie reviews are supposed to be about movies, right? That's what we thought. We check out movie reviews for information about movies, we check out the front pages for news and we check out the opinion pages for commentary. The Boston Globe has moved beyond this simple formula though. Read this paragraph for a review of the move "Stealth."

  • "Stealth" is a pretty fair military-hardware action movie until you start thinking about it -- at which point it turns incredibly sour in your mouth. I can therefore recommend it to any and all audiences lacking higher brain functions. Sea cucumbers, perhaps. Ones waving American flags. (emphasis added)
So if we like our country and choose to fly a flag in front of the house to support our country, we lack higher brain functions and are the equivalent of sea cucumbers? Wow. That east coast media elite sure are a bitter bunch if a freaking movie reviewer feels the need to insult millions of citizens who choose to fly a flag. Bring on the alternative media and send the dead tree media packing already.

Why don't we make the comments about 022 a separate thread? Seems alot of folks have stuff to say.
