Submission + - Why do film critics trash video games?

Ben writes: Variety runs an opinion piece that questions why so many film critics who didn't like "300" compared it to a video game... as if that's obviously a bad thing??? "For today's movie critics, videogames are the new MTV musicvideo, a shorthand insult for any movie deemed too heavy on effects and visual panache at the expense of plot and coherence. Anyone who has spent much time playing videogames — a category in which, it seems safe to assume, few established film critics fall — knows the comparison is both artistically demeaning and substantively wrong."

Executive ability is deciding quickly and getting somebody else to do the work. -- John G. Pollard
