...was more of a 75% vs. 25% split reaction, but it was tweeted last night in earnest. The gladhanders who love almost everything have their place and function, but their raves about Steven Spielberg's just-premiered, sure-to-be-Oscar-nominated urban musical don't mean much. At the risk of sounding puffed up, Rod Lurie is right -- a single, emotional, very respectful thumbs-up from someone like myself (there are others who share my mixed view of Spielberg's career arc) is worth 15 or 20 jump-up-and-down raves from a community of junket prostitutes. It means something in the same way that an HE pan of a boilerplate Marvel or D.C. film is meaningless.
