Another in a series of interminable “suck-up” covers to the world’s ever-growing geek community.
Certainly nothing wrong with that (we do it all the time– even though we do try to go beyond the average hype-filled press releases)… But as a long-time Entertainment Weekly reader, I remember when the magazine was a place of serious film and television discussion… As opposed to a mag that simply pimps whatever geeky project Hollywood has dreamed up this week.
Again, don’t blame them (the weekly magazine business is practically non-existent these days) but I can’t imagine someone who loves film– but finds superheroes, fantasy, science fiction or horror boring– ever picking up a copy of this publication anymore.
All that noted, I think my current subscription runs through 2017. 😉
