The reviews section

New music, movies, and books this week:

Music gets a B.  Certain new albums by old fogeys are transparently overrated with an A, but in two years we will forget this and say the new new album is the best one in two decades.  One obvious piece of crap gets a C-.

Movies get 3.5 stars out of 5.  Johnny Depp’s awesome face is worth an extra half a star.  Michael Bay’s explosions are worth -1.5 stars.

Books – who cares, nobody is reading this section.  Just like nobody reads books.  Several made-up-looking titles get raves, why not.

    A friend of mine posits that the best possible review in Rolling Stone is 3 out of 5 stars. Lower than that means the stuff isn’t that good, higher than that means you know Jann Wenner. 5 stars means you’re Mick Jagger or Bob Dylan.
