Default 'The Rum Diary' - High-Def Digest Review

Steve Cohen has reviewed 'The Rum Diary,' Johnny Depp's return to the chaotic world of Hunter S. Thompson. He says the film offers an entertaining but decidedly mixed experience. He says the video is solid, but a little underwhelming, audio is quite nice.There are a few enlightening extras. Worth a look.,

Wait, what? That review is the exact opposite of every review I heard back when the movie came to theaters. I was going to see it (as I do with every Depp movie), but even Depp did not seem enthused about it.

I've seen this movie and believe me: All the other reviews were right on. The whole movie is just pointless and boring.

It's almost evenly split:

Just saying.

I'm compelled to comment, since my screen name is an homage to Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, who gloried in a bad review by a critic who attacked him as a "vicious misanthrope."

HST/Johnny Depp fan that I am, this is one fun, funny film. Imperfect? Yeah, I guess. A lot of oddly angled comic fun? Hell, yes, especially if the voice of the warped [email protected]#[email protected]%d Thompson still rattles around anywhere in the cobwebs of your fractured, wasted head.
