Lou vs. Ebert

Lou vs. Ebert

Lou Lumenick is an asshole.

And because I’m a little over protective when it comes to L’Ebert – who came up to Toronto despite what must be a horribly uncomfortable state and saw a movie that is exactly the type of well-done sentimentality he loves to love – Slumdog Millionaire – I’d like to quote Cinematical’s Erik Davis a few months ago:

The tag line underneath Lou Lumenick’s name should read, “Will provide sh*tty film reviews for fifty cents because that’s about as much as my opinion is worth.” Lumenick, who writes film reviews for the New York Post, is easily the worst critic of 2008 so far – and, unlike his reviews, I’m actually going to back up that statement.
