I think this shows how much SLC needs its own local critic and movie voice. The
D news obviously caters to a very LDS Demographic -- and I am part of that, and
I appreciated Vice giving his view of the film from that perspective.
Syndicated reviewers won't write with that in mind and so the editors had to
scramble to find something . . .anything! to help LDS viewers gauge a movie
based on a religious value system. Unfortunately . .this ain't it. Bring back
Jeff Vice--and Scott Pierce while you're at it.
Wow. Alpha and Omega gets a positive review (19 percent rating on
Rottentomatoes) and Easy A (85 percent rating on Rottentomatoes) gets a 0.
Awesome. None of these reviews are based on whether a movie is entertaining or
not, just on how it morally stacks up. If Casablanca came out, it'd
get a 0 to. I mean there was an affair, tense scenes, lots of drinking and
smoking, violence, morally reprehensible characters and nothing that supported
Christian values. Classic film Casablanca - 0. Terrible, cheesy generic
mind-numbingly stupid Alpha and Omega - positive review. Great move
Des News. Great.
Let's just bring back Vice and pretend this whole Catholic whatever, whatever
doesn't exist, okay? I didn't always agree with Vice, but he gave honest reviews
based on how entertaining the movie was. I don't want to read reviews based on
how the Catholic Church feels about the Christian value of it. You've lost a regular review reader.
thank you for the article and information
