And while I do admit that I can mostly be classified under “the mindless masses” these days, as far as my movie-going preferences go, I do sometimes wonder if they’re not having more fun than the people who are reading so much hype over the course of the year, whilst anticipating a movie, that they’re bound to wind themselves up to breaking point. The _Snakes on a Plane_ syndrome, if you will. Sure, I was there at Comic-Con last year when they showed the new footage, and I cheered along with the rest of that crowd of uber-fen. But then I didn’t read or see a single shred of additional film information up until last night. And was probably all the happier for it.
