Things that make you go, "No, I don't think so"...

I realize tastes very, and you might grade different sorts of films differently, but I was aghast that in the April 1st issue of Entertainment Weekly, the DVD review section gives a B+ to the new Criterion Kagemusha DVD, and an A- to a special edition of Orgazmo. You might argue this is based on the extras, rather than the film itself, but the Kagamusha review mentions an "outstanding commentary".

I'll don't think I'll regret having bought the lower rated disc.

Kagemusha is a wonderful, beautiful film, and I haven't seen Orgazmo so I can't comment on that, but Entertainment Weakly has never seen trash it didn't value above substance.

Having said that, Trey Parker has made some of the funniest movies I've ever seen. No, he's nowhere near Kurosawa and never will be, but sometimes you don't want a magnificent meal, you're just hungry for a pizza.
