The word is spreading and spreading thick and fast, from the positive to the critically constructive.
From the top billing on the ImDb Pro homepage to the honor of two sentences from the people at New York Magazine's Vulture blog.
I feel as though there is an ethical code that underlies the blogosphere, that one should be a good sport and take the rough with the smooth. I refer exclusively to the comments made by Vulture, the industry blog of New York magazine, whose tag-line rolls: "Devouring Culture". I don't mean to fight fire with fire, but what IS in a name? Quite a lot apparently. As we slave away trying to rescue culture from the trenches, these 'commentators' feast on our bleeding veins. But lets not play at heroics. De Felitta is not hurt, and can see their point, but it is the movie that will stand up and be counted at the end of the day. Let us keep the conversation diverse and freehttp://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif. It is all a matter of opinion, and here is mine: any news is good news.
P.S I think there were some leftovers at lunch if they are feeling peckish...
In the name of being a good sport here is the link:
