Zmirak Loves Cabrini Movie!

Edit: if Zmirak liked it, it probably stinks. He’s an Americanist Libtardarian, so that might explain it?

[Chronicles] What if I told you there was an exquisitely filmed and brilliantly acted new movie about the construction of one of history’s great landmarks, a building that enriched one of the world’s most vibrant cities and carried to the modern age the best of ancient traditions, uplifting all who passed through it?

Now what if I told you the film was about New York’s Pennsylvania Station? This was the grand Beaux Arts masterpiece wantonly torn down in the ’60s, and replaced with a dismal warren—an act which prompted architect and scholar  Vincent Scully to say, “One entered the city like a god; one scuttles in now like a rat.”

Could you even stand to watch it? Especially if you are a New Yorker, who must now crawl through those dismal tunnels under the bleak, suffocating low ceilings of that travesty now standing in the old station’s place, where the only traces of vanished beauty appear in the handrails of staircases, and haunting photographs of the former beauty hung about, as if to taunt us.

At least he saw the film that he reviewed.
Thug Gordon and his crew of testosterone boys blathered for over an hour on how bad the film was, when none of the 4 watched the whole movie.
2 of them had not even heard of it. One saw a trailer for it and big bad Thug said he saw 25 minutes of it.
They were so offended that their collective, manly erections shrunk.

I don’t think Thug’s review would be any more intelligent if he saw the film.

C’mon man. This is the guy who put Our Lady’s face on the bottom of his skateboard

In honor of "Our Lady of the Way" no doubt.

Zmirak self-loathing and shallowness of character lead him off in an angry ideological tangent.
Room for improvement!

The four of them sound like a bunch of queers sitting around in their kimonos and dishing on all of the women that they hate. Which, apparently, is all of them.

A group of weirdos.

Opus Deli productions are really flashy but boring.

Best summary of Cabrini the movie is by Tancred: "if Zmirak liked it, it probably stinks."
