I don't know -- I can remember on several occasions he's given movies a  
"dismal D" or even a "dreadful D-Minus" in capsule reviews he did on  

As for the Alexander review, there's a more detailed one -- but with  
the grade improved to C+ -- in the Framingham TAB...

David Brudnoy, along with Gene Burns, were the two "must-listen-to"  
talk hosts for me in the 80s and into the 90s.  They thought about the  
issues.  They discussed them eloquently, passionately, and, most  
importantly, made me think. I've missed Gene ever since he jumped  
coasts; I'll miss David now that he's about to jump existences.
