Munich-Negative

I'm still feeling really anti-Munich. I read somewhere they're calling it "Munich-negative" on the boards. I was thinking this morning about Tony Kushner, one of my idols. He allegedly co-wrote the screenplay with Eric Roth. I'd like to think he wrote the interesting talky parts: Ciáran Hinds and Eric Bana's scene after the CIA thwarts them in Athens or Lynn Cohen's speech at the beginning, but I hated this picture so much and I really find it difficult to include Mr. Kushner in the crafting of this film at all. Obviously, I think it's great that Mr. Kushner might actually win an Oscar one day, but hopefully he's not nominated for this half-baked pile of junk.
