Tortured Louis Black paragraph of the week

Louis Black didn't write his column this week, so I've been forced to Google-search the archives and present a Louis Black blast from the past. Here's one from July 2003:

"For me, it's usually a bit disconcerting talking to people about (Robert) Rodriguez's films. Most viewers approach each film as an independent entity, while I see all the films as part of an ongoing process. As much as From Dusk Till Dawn, Desperado, or Spy Kids knock me out, as Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over truly dazzles, and as I eagerly await Once Upon a Time in Mexico, these seem like early chapters in what I'm betting is going to be an extraordinary body of work. The quality of what the Rodriguez/Avellán team has already produced just deepens my excitement and anticipation of what will be coming."

I just want to repeat one phrase from that paragraph, for emphasis: "... as Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over truly dazzles ..."

He's being sarcastic, right? You'd have to be french to say that without sarcasm.

i can't decide which is worse: (1) this is how the voice inside his head actually sounds or (2) this is what he thinks other people sound like. the first scenario is sad; the second is bordering on sociopathic. the third option is that he is an exceptionally lazy writer who doesn't give a shit about the words he writes. i think that's about the worst thing you could say about a person in his position. i hope he's just a lonely tasteless crazy-nutso.

Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over certainly did fucking dazzle. What's your problem?
