Re: STID: 10 years later
Into Darkness is a disposable blockbuster film that will be forgotten in 10 years.
Whether or not it's remembered fondly at ten years' distance is one question.
But forgotten - in a fandom which is still energetically hashing over continuity issues in "The Alternative Factor" or bemoaning the indignity of 'horsie' scene in "Plato's Stepchildren"? I wonder.
As for literary criticism in general: I have long felt that any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel or a play or a poem is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae or a banana split. ~ Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
