It’s natural to worry that the colossal success of a tightly formatted movie such as the new ‘Transformers’ will only stiffen the resolve of studios to repeat it, or will only solidify the shapes of existing pigeonholes and sideline unusual and distinctive movies even further. Yet such concern reduces to a mere snobbery of taste, a straw-person diversion akin to an opera house blaming low attendance at a production of ‘Salomé’ on a Miley Cyrus concert.
Given how long it’s taken me to reconcile my nature, I can’t figure I’d forego it on your account.


Buffy Summers, Our Lady of Protection.
Deliver us from that which goes bump in the night, and give us the strength to protect what we love.

Saint of maximum slayage. Respect.
