About a week ago, I posted a short piece here about how Roger Ebert walked out on a movie after eight minutes but nonetheless wrote a detailed review of it for the Chicago Sun-Times. I confessed to feeling the same temptation many a time, but never giving into it. It started a round of discussions among other Herald critics, some of whom have walked out on shows they were reviewing, some of whom haven't. Finally we decided the whole thing would make an interesting story, which appears in Sunday's paper. Among other things, it functions as a sort of Miami Herald Worst Popular Art Of All Time list, since everybody cited an example of something they've had to watch or listen to that made them suicidal. In other words, a perfect list of potential Christmas presents for people you hate. Enjoy.
