    “All over the Internet — I’ve encountered it, quite often, on the comment boards of this site — moviegoers are standing up, with an ‘I’m Spartacus!’ solidarity, to declare their doubts, their latent shrug, their dutiful respect but definitive lack of love for what was, up until a few weeks ago, the most robustly acclaimed movie of the year (and also, not so incidentally, the most popular acclaimed movie of the year).”

    Gleiberman means TSN, but with those last phrases he’s describing TS3.
