Sentence(s) of the Day

Graph of the day: “Middlebrow wags complain about how bad comic book adaptations imbue childish stories with grand social-political themes. It seems far worse to reduce the entirety of WWI to picture-book bathos about how everyone loves horses and it’s a small world, after all…To put it another way, in 2070, do you want to see an Oscar contender about a sweet-hearted Baathist and a decent Blackwater contractor who, against the artfully composed tracer fire of Fallujah, bond together, and save a brave, noble camel?”

Also good: “‘New Year’s Eve’ feels like the movie adaptation of a vodka ad.”
