📌 Chuck Klosterman reviews Chinese Democracy | The A.V. Club

“Reviewing Chinese Democracy is not like reviewing music. It’s more like reviewing a unicorn. Should I primarily be blown away that it exists at all? Am I supposed to compare it to conventional horses? To a rhinoceros? Does its pre-existing mythology impact its actual value, or must it be examined inside a cultural vacuum, as if this creature is no more (or less) special than the remainder of the animal kingdom? I’ve been thinking about this record for 15 years; during that span, I’ve thought about this record more than I’ve thought about China, and maybe as much as I’ve thought about the principles of democracy.” #

📌 Roger Ebert's Journal: I admit it: I loved "Indy"

This is why I love Ebert. You’d think that after a lifetime of reviewing films he’d be jaded cynical about something as big as “Indy”. It’s easier to grumble and hate; Ebert’s awesome because he *loves movies*. By the way, I can’t wait to see this flick. #

This is amazing -- 20 years of Ebert’s reviews. Simply outstanding. #
