A devil of an error: Does "The Rite" really feature satin?


Oh, my.  This is quite the giggleworthy movie review. 

First, I take exception to the phrase that starts out "The actor best known as Hannibal Lecter...".  The actor is best known as Sir Anthony Hopkins.  The role he is best known for playing is that of Hannibal Lecter.  As it stands, this sentence seems awkward.

But it gets better (and by better, I mean worse).  Then the writer confuses Satan and...satin.  Yes, seriously.  And there's truly no comparison--Satan and satin are vastly different.  I love the way the sentence is written, though...the dramatic tone of the sentence makes "Satin" being at the end of it sooooo much funnier!

Thanks to YVIE for spotting these errors!

Seriously! Chiffon and tulle are much more angelic. :)

Haaaaa! Anthony Hopkins was just born to play Satin...be it sheets, smoking jackets, or curtains...he has range, damn it!

Dresses and lingerie, too--those can also be made of satin, and he's got *such* a good range that those items should surely be included!
