The love for JJ Abrams - Why..?
The JJ Abrams love.
Please stop this madness.
Philip Seymour Hoffman refers to him as 'an artist' in this months TF. Did he see Mission Impossible 3? That movie was almost unwatchable at times it was so badly made.
I'm reading reviews of Super8 using words like 'genius' and 'visionary'. He's a self promoting TV producer and a pop culture leech whose film-making skills consist of copying what everyone else is doing and regurgitating it without any understanding of why the original was good.
If anyone can give me an example from Abrams 'canon' that might justify the term 'artist' then please feel free. Otherwise please save the hyperbole for someone who deserves it.
