  1. Yeah, that’s a good article–on target.

    How unenjoyable? Here’s Joshua Goldberg in USA Today:

    So far, these movies are tanking. Rendition opened on 2,250 screens, with three Oscar winners in the cast, and it was beaten its opening weekend by a re-release of the 14-year-old A Nightmare Before Christmas. Elah was a bigger bomb than those used in the “shock and awe” campaign. The Kingdom earned less than $50 million, and surely only did that well because it was marketed as an action movie rather than an anti-war one.

    The last movie I paid to see, no kidding, was “Over the Hedge” ‘cuz it has the little CGI critters in it.

    You can trust CGI critters!

    I know that no Computer Generated Raccoon, or even rat, is going to go on Larry King and slander his country, his president and his military.

    By default, the CGI critters are the most patriotic actors in Hollywood.
