Well, that's the tricky part, isn't it? Being grammatically correct, and still entertaining. When I see reviews or even posts with dumb spelling errors ("The Shinning", and they're not referring to The Simpsons' parody), it makes the writer seem less intelligent to me, and I start to tune out.
Of course, you're absolutely correct in saying that if someone is technically perfect, they're usually dry as dust.

Finding that balance is tough, but that's why I say it's good to get the education in anyway. Learn the rules, but know when to break them for comedic or dramatic effect. Really, that applies to any artistic endeavor.
