Not funny, Woody

Finally, someone recognizes that Woody Allen makes mediocre, miserable films: Woody Allen. He left out "pretentious." He actually displayed some hints of comic genius in early movies such as "Bananas" and "Take the Money and Run" before he got so serious. He has occasionally blended humor and astute observation, as in "Annie Hall" (although I liked "Hannah and Her Sisters" better), but it's hard to think of a major moviemaker who is respsonsible for so much out-and-out crap. What's wrong with just trying to be funny? Humor is the one thing the world never has enough of.
