The Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic of the Wall Street Journal, Joe Morgenstern, resigned the other day after people ignored his scathing review of this film and went to see it anyway:http://hollywoodroaster.wordpress.com/2008/12/15/morgenstern...Joe Morgenstern has seen his share of stinkers over the past 50 years, but the weekend box office numbers for "The Day the Earth Stood Still" left the Wall Street Journal film reviewer so disgusted, he immediately sent an email of resignation to his editor."Clearly my work isn't having any effect whatsoever," said Morgenstern. "Most Americans would rather watch a bologna sandwich rot on screen than be challenged by films like 'Milk' or 'Slumdog Millionaire.'"According to Morgenstern’s review, the Keanu Reeves pic is "a dumb remake that's insufferably full of itself...as cold and blank as the expression on Mr. Reeves' face." Despite Morgenstern's unflattering review, the film opened to more than $30 million over the weekend.____________________________________________________________It's no fun being underappreciated -- I should know. But at least I don't w@nk about it.--fleg
