I’m no Harlan Ellison, but I do enjoy a good rant. And I enjoy writing them.
No, I take that back. I don’t enjoy writing them. I hate writing them. Because it means that I have a need to write them. But it has to be done.
I am going to share with you a portion of a letter I wrote some time ago. It’s a good start.
I’ll sum up (again) the Burton movie with this; It’s not good. It’s not good Dark Shadows. It’s not a good comedy. It’s not a good demonstration of Burton’s strengths. It fails on every level. Even Collinwood loses its warmth.
Now, from a letter penned by yrs. tly. It was in response to the question of whether or not I ever regretted the project.
