Roger Ebert loved Carrie (3 1/2 stars), expressed boredom with Children Of The Corn and says about Orphan: "You want a good horror film about a child from hell, you got one."
But he's suddenly pissy about the violence in Kick-Ass?
Calling the flick "morally reprehensible," Ebert takes issue with the all-too-real violence carried out in the film by a girl dressed as a super-hero. To fanboys who think the movie did the comic book justice, Ebert snorts: " You know what? You inhabit a world I am so very not interested in."
Somebody must have forgotten to add butter to Ebert's popcorn.
His reaction reminds me of my Dad's inability to understand my affection for Kurt Cobain, and my Big Band-era grandfather who thought Elvis was of the devil.
Ebert's review just made me want to see Kick-Ass even more!
