OSCARS DEATH RACE: W.E.

When a movie bombs, I like to go to Rotten Tomatoes, sort the reviews by "Rotten," and enjoy the show. Flops can bring out the best a critic (or her thesaurus) has to offer, the acidic synonyms and dismissive gut-punches she saves for when a movie is genuinely and thoroughly crap and not just misguided or inconsistent, and I like scorched-earth movie reviews for the wordsmithing -- but also because I know that glorious tingle, that "I'm-a stomp this flat and make the deadline with two hours to spare" feeling.
