The reviews of Frank Miller’s “The Spirt” keep coming in.
And they keep on piling on the negatives. In just one weekend, it’s achieved a 16% at Rotten Tomatoes (as of this posting – the score may go down even lower once people get back to work today and surf).
But when I read things like this sentence (from The Onion’s A.V. Club review):
“As a babe-delivery system, The Spirit is a rousing success.”
…I realize that that, alone, could be enough to put my butt in a seat, even when the very next sentence is:
“In every other sense, it’s a pronounced failure.”
Maybe this helps to explain why I’ve seen so many damned movies.
