Paul TataraWith the passing of Paul Clinton from his mortal coil, it's time to remember CNN's other film critic. "Wait," you may ask, "CNN has another film critic?" Yes indeedy - at least up until 2003, that is. Whereas Paul Clinton's editor claimed he constantly had to slice the world "perfect" out of Clinton's reviews, I can only imagine how many synonyms for the word "suck" the editor had to remove from the reviews of Paul Tatara. Tatara practically served as Clinton's id at CNN for several years; the two of them even posted dueling best/worst lists at year's end. While Clinton was known for being diplomatic in the face of schlock, Tatara was unsparing in his distaste for most of what Hollywood had to offer.
