Last I checked it had a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Sam Raimi has been my fave director since Evil Dead 2. To think that people laughed at me when I said that ED 2 was a great movie...me and my friend were the only two people in the theater.

it's here I sit and rust amid this ruin and rancor like tire irons
toothy grills and car parts before me...

There are now three negative reviews, but they're from outlets which doesn't surprise me, like The Village Voice. They seem to be complaining about all the things that everyone is raving about. Oh well, NOTHING gets globally positive reviews....

Saw it last night. It has some amazing action sequences, but I wasn't expecting it to be such a tear-jerker! Or maybe I'm just getting soft in my old age.

I saw it last night, too -- it's wonderful.

The next time I see it, I'll be wearing my favorite cap...

I noticed something unusual in the film. Look at the vast number of facial close-ups in the film. You can practically count the pores on Tobey McGuire's face and the little wrinkles around his eyes. Almost the same for Kirsten Dunst, but she has a better plastic surgeon.

Theatrical movies almost never get that close...but TELEVISION SHOWS do. TV is an intimate medium, a visitor in your home. Could this film have been shot with the understanding that most people will be buying it on DVD?

In addition, I noticed another bit of product placement that most people will have skipped. Just as in the first film where Norman Osborne gets drunk and starts seeing his villainous self in the mirror, Harry Osborne gets drunk and sees his dad's ghost. And what are they both drinking? In shots that make the bottle very visible?

MAKER'S MARK, the whiskey of villains! It's so important to villainous deeds that, instead of knocking the glass out of Harry Osborne's hand, Doc Ock grabs the glass without spilling more than a drop. Even evil robotic arms know the value of this particular brand of booze.

We need an ad campaign. Show the three villains in the film - Norman, Harry and Octavius with his tentacles - all holding celebratory glasses of Maker's Mark. "Before you kill and destroy, treat yourself to the best! Drink responsibly, but maraude irresponsibly!" They could even do stand-ups for liquor stores - better than those siliconed bimbos they usually use.

Coincidentally, MAKER'S MARK is Sam Raimi's favorite whiskey. [Big Grin]
