Creation reviews

Here are a few more reviews of the new film Creation (which was picked up for distribution in Canada):

Dennis Harvey, Variety
Ann Brodie, Metro Canada
Fionnuala Halligan, Screendaily.com
Cartuna, Aintitcool.com

After reading those, I'm becoming less and less enthusiastic. Sounds like it might be as melodramatic as Inherit the Wind, and the reviews are already spreading disinformation (Darwin was not an atheist but an agnostic). (In case you care, Eugenie Scott liked it. Surprise, surprise.)

Maybe I'm just too pessimistic. I hope so. (If I hope I'm not a pessimist, does that make me an optimist?)
