a blast from the past: Linda Holmes on Scott Pilgrim vs the Unfortunate Tendency to Review the Audience

"Scott Pilgrim versus the unfortunate tendency to review the audience", by Linda Holmes, is one of the most enjoyable and interesting bits of meta-critical writing I've read in the last few years.
The single sentence that I think encapsulates where Linda Holmes went with this piece is here:

It's not aiming to be liked by all; it's aiming to be adored by many. 

I'd share more of the piece but instead I'd urge you to follow the link and go read it.
