Awesome reviews by awesome people

So yesterday I got given a copy of Ethel the Aardvark, the zine for the Melbourne Science Fiction Club, and I started leafing through it. Pretty soon, I happened across this - a review of Avatar - which I will now quote from:
Avatar is Fantasy - quarriers don't trample civil rights

In my professional life, I'm the editor of Quarry magazine, the official monthly journal of the Institute of Quarrying Australia. Quarry is read by 3,000 subscribers across Australia and overseas. What follows is my editorial from the March issue of Quarry, in which I commented on parallels drawn by activists between the Na'vi of James Cameron's Avatar and other disenfranchised indigenous groups around the world... My headline was - parallels aside, Avatar still a fantasy.
For that opening sentence alone, that is possibly the most awesome review ever written.

Quarries are good, not evil.

At least I didn't have to see the film to find this truth.
