And bad writers, to boot. The chick who did the Bakshi LOTR
was ready to tear it to shreds from the start. She claims she is an avowed hater of the books, which is fine, but it has no bearing on the review, which makes cracks about the 70's haircuts and the fact that Aragorn isn't an Olympian god like Viggo Mortesen.
Granted, even their best recappers are guilty of that; Like Ed Harris, who went on for yards about Vanessa Ferlito's alleged Butter Face
. I get it. You have a thing about noses. Can we get back to Death Proof
I usually give recappers the benefit of the doubt, since they're comedians and thus get annoyed by little everyday things. For instance, TWoP
had two or three Lit majors covering the Buffyverse, and they couldn't shut up about Eliza Dusku's "tiny calves." Well, okay. It's a given that these guys are paid to be petty. But if a critic doesn't even pretend to be objective and comes out with both barrels blazing, then we've entered the realm of trolling for money.
edit: I do enjoy Sophie Liv. She used to lurk around Spoony's forum before getting her own review show. Just a good natured, gushing fangirl with a Zsa Zsa Gabor accent.
