Stephanie Zacharek's negative review was predictable because she hates good genre films. I've read her reviews since her days at and she hasn't changed a bit in 15 years. Her former Salon colleague Andrew O'Hehir's review of The Avengers wasn't so much criticism of the film itself -- he didn't even address it -- as it was a diatribe against the entire genre. Critics in the US tend to indulge themselves in this manner, which is why I and others anticipated that Iron Man 3 would do well among the literate and intelligent foreign press and come a cropper when the domestic reviews came pouring in.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
