Vancouver Winter Olympics – Opening Ceremony

The Vancouver Winter Olympics got off to a great start with a stunning Opening Ceremonies:

Now in contrast, the Toronto Star characterized the show as “an unimaginatively conceived and loosely executed spectacle that promised much and delivered little.” Instead of this dim view I would take the NYTimes “A Tasteful Way to Start the Olympics” as indicative¬† and then see what the entertainment capital of the world thinks. Go to the Los Angeles Times which has a 42 image slideshow [more than any Canadian newspaper]¬†devoted to the Vancouver Olympics Opening Ceremony. I suspect the LA Hollywood people know a good show when they see one.
