Voices from "Zombieland"


A couple of postings back I lamented the decline in civility in internet discourse. Well, that sure had an impact. Here's what some of those who disagreed with my review of "Zombieland" (which topped the box office this week, taking in $25 million) had to say about it on the "Rotten Tomatoes" website:

I didnt even know this crappy paper was still around. I dont know about the review but its a piss poor publication in general"

Wait, did he actually get paid to write that review? I'm pretty sure 90% of the people here could write a better one."

"Who knew that writing a review like this won't be a great opportunity for you to be liked by anyone. I hope that when you **** tonight all the ****hole excuses for reviews you've written in the past clog your ****hole and your very own vaginal lips choke the dumbass out of you. You cocknibbling thunder-twat."

Thanks for the asterisks to spare those of us who might be offended by the rough language.

In the last posting I mentioned the great critic James Agee who in his first film review described his role as someone who "conduct[s] one end of a conversation, as an amateur critic among amateur critics." A worthy ideal, no doubt. But Agee never had a conversation with aaron b.
