A game is a thing that, in playing with it, magnifies your presence. It is not a picture, it is not a story, it is not a flat thing, it is a place created out of the imagination of another person. It’s a little house you step inside, a conversation you have with an unseen builder.
—Film Crit Hulk in “Intro #4” of his extensive article on Man of Steel. Said intro is worth reading at least, even if Hulk really has to stop using the “all-caps” style which ultimately infantilizes and mutes the strength and quality of opinion that he’s arguing for, here. Ironically, however, I can’t ever forgive him for calling Looper one of the best films of 2012. What a maroon!
