<<With 75 reviews at rottentomatoes, the film is now at an amazing 8% on the meter - 69 negative reviews and 6 positive.>>--ac

I wonder why I'm not surprised at that? One look at "rottentomatoes" and it is obvious that the clamour there is all from assorted eggheads competing to outjingo each other with the kind of baloney that is traditionally served up by the NY theatre press. I'd give them about as much weight toward ascertaining the truth as I would give all those far-left political posts over on the PA Board that garner dozens and dozens of recs. They have their constituency, and they can bring it out on cue, usually. But they rarely, rarely represent the majority view.

I'd be surprised, frankly, if 75 people posting on "rottentomatoes" could tell you what decade of what century the Civil War took place in and on what portion of what continent it happened. They should acquire a better respect for history. And when they see history replayed in dramatic form, they should appreciate it like good opera--you know what is coming, yet you pay attention to make sure the performers get it right, one more time.

/s/ S.T.
