Kudos on the McChrystal article, but Jann Wenner’s print celebration of all things plastic is far from hip. Matt Taibbi’s snide dispatches rarely impress, and movie “critic” Peter Travers is a eager whore.
*MIAMI VICE: “If you’re looking for a crime story that sizzles with action, sex and the visceral jolt of life on the edge, Miami Vice is the one.”
*MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 3: “This summer M:i:III is the movie to beat in the race to push your pulse rate past the danger zone.”
*POSEIDON: “It’s a blast. Poseidon hits the action button and never stops!”
*SCHOOL FOR SCOUNDRELS: “Uproarious…fiendishly funny! The laughs come with a sting! Thornton and Heder keep you howling. Jon Heder orbits past his Napoleon Dynamite character at last by getting seriously fierce! A hot and rowdy funfest! Ben Stiller is in top form.”
Ninety percent of the magazine reads like “Entertainment Tonight” with curse words. Don’t believe their hype.
