ah yes i see it now...my bad...but you'd think maybe 2...esp with her last summation:
''But mostly "Dark Shadows" is silly when we're trained to expect slightly richer fun from Burton and Depp. As it's said of the Collins family again and again, one turn of the emotional screw might have made this film "endure."

I found it rich with family loyalty and betrayal issues, I expected silliness and was impressed with Burton and Depp sticking to their gothic guns.

Most critics from the Online Film Critics Society (OFCS) enter their own quotes and ratings. For critics who don't enter in their own quotes and ratings, it's basically up to the judgment of the editors. They take into account word choice, rating (if any), tone, and who the critic is in their determination of whether a review is positive or not.

"Mostly Dark Shadows is silly when we're trained to expect slightly richer fun from Burton and Depp." This sentence sums it up better thatn any paragraph.
