Oops

The one with a weird difference in tone

В крайнем номере Time Роджер наш Корлисс накатал правильную не-фэнбойскую* рецензию. Которая на сайте, вы будете смеяться, отличается от того, что напечатано в журнале - в худшую сторону. Вот вам для примера последний абзац:

На сайте:
It certainly contains its share of popcorn breaks: hit the concession stand whenever Dan and Laurie start their mooning. But it bravely pursues its agenda with a monomaniacal grandeur, on the order of Speed Racer and Synecdoche, New York. (Loyal readers will understand that I mean this as a compliment.) Both admirable for and cramped by its fidelity to the Moore vision, this ambitious picture is a thing of bits and pieces. Yes, the bits are glorious, the pieces magnificent. Still, this Watchmen is more like a swatch-man.


В журнале:
Containing its own popcorn breaks - hit the concession stand whenever Dan and Laurie start their mooning - this ambitious picture is a thing of bits and pieces. But oh, those beautiful bits. And wow, those magnificent pieces.


Куда катится этот мир?
