    Not surprised about that CHUD article. Feraci’s an idiot. I stopped visiting that site ages ago because of his spitefulness, ignorance, and arrogance. And I’ve never in my life witnessed a writer in any medium who so despised his readership. He’s not a bad writer (which is what attracted me to his site in the first place), but as a “film critic” he’s a complete fake, and my actually have a serious vision impairment. That’s the only explanation I’ve been able to come up with. Or he’s been mixing up his movie titles and gets confused about what he’s watching.

    I have a feeling that Public Enemies will not be well-received by the critics. I don’t mean outright pans but unenthusiastic reviews that might not warrant attention at the end of the year.

    Hmmm, not sure I agree with what Devin is saying, it doesn’t have to be better than TDK (it my not be) but it has to be and I assume would be a high quality film like his previous 2 films. Also I think it is pretty much common knowledge that the reason Godfather 3 was not up to par with 1 or 2 was because Paramount dropped the ball with paying Robert Duvall so the script had to rewritten and it didn’t work out…
