    Pros: This movie delivers on every conceivable level.
    Cons: Fans are a fickle bunch and you can't please all of them.

    Summary: I am convinced that all people — critics and movie fans alike — suffer from a neurological condition called "Jar Jar Myopia" -- which is basically defined as "a small, hard-to-detect bias bound within all moviegoers that prevents them ... read more
