From Roger Ebert’s review of Your Highness:

Natalie Portman is the Xena clone, a fierce warrior, laid on for anime fans who seem to regard such characters as masturbatory fantasies.

From Michael Phillips’ review of Sucker Punch:

The film abdicates so many basic responsibilities of coherent storytelling, even coherent stupid-action-movie storytelling, director/co-writer/co-producer Zack Snyder must have known in preproduction that his greasy collection of near-rape fantasies and violent revenge scenarios disguised as a female-empowerment fairy tale wasn’t going to satisfy anyone but himself. Well, himself, plus ardent fans of Japanese-schoolgirl manga comics.

Hopefully this doesn’t reveal their distaste for anime as much as their perception of anime and manga  fans, but you can never be sure. What gives, Roger?
