Okay, now I don't feel guilty about not wanting to go see The Spirit

I commend to you Peter David's review of The Spirit, which desperately tries to be positive and fails. Indeed, he doesn't even lambaste it for the reason I'm so annoyed by it (the fact that Frank Miller took one of the classics of the comics field and rewrote it to look just like everything else he writes) -- rather, he treats it as simply a Frank Miller movie on its own terms, and it *still* fails.

I mean, really, when the list of positive things you can say about the movie includes, "Everyone's diction was really clear, and no one bumped into any furniture.", you are truly damning with the faintest praise possible...
