Re: 5 reasons Into Darkness is a great Trek film
Maybe the reason financially successful movies are getting good reviews is because they are... good?
I am of the opinion that people are more discriminating with how they spend their money on movies, given that a movie's theater run is much shorter and the home theater experience is much better and more cost effective these days. People are more willing to open their wallets for a movie that is deemed "worth it".
Now that I've seen it, and have also had time to mellow, to really think about it, I now find it absolutely, unbearably repulsive in every way except for some of the acting. - about The Wrath of Khan. Interstat, Issue 62: 1982
