DVD Reviews: Kubrick Collection, I Am Number Four, The Illusionist, American Graffiti

“Simply put, there’s more humanity and wit to be found here in a bit of dialogue shouted between two hot rods than in nearly nine hours of portentous exposition muttered between two Jedi walking down some computer-created Piranesian colonnade. Hell, one short conversation between Richard Dreyfus and Wolfman Jack in American Graffiti’s pivotal scene has more truth and joy than the whole of the Star Wars saga, and for that George Lucas should be moved to Lear-like penitence.”
