On "The Twilight Saga: New Moon"

From The Dispatch:
I seriously do not understand how something so drab and lifeless can be so hugely successful. It's two hours and 10 minutes of rambling, pointless drivel, where nothing of any real interest happens. The sad thing is that people are eating this stuff up in droves. I'm not sure what that says about a culture where this is considered great entertainment. Regardless, I don't want any part of it.

The dispatch forced you to review this, right? It was work. That's probably the only way I would ever be force to see it: 'cause of work and even then, I would probably call in sick or quit, 'cause I can't stand the feverish devotion behind this utter piece of horseshit.

No I wasn't forced. I generally review more mainstream stuff for them so I try to do the highest profile film each week. In this case, it's such a pop culture phenomenon I couldn't ignore it even if I wanted to. I have to keep up with what's going on. It's my job. And this is one of the hazards.

At least I have a legitimate reason to hate it now.
