If it's crap ... We'll tell you
So I've seen the Avengers twice now online (there's streaming copies around). It's good, but it's not that good.
When they get to bickering at each other they get way out of character, and suddenly it's like watching Buffy and her friends in one of their snappier episodes, where they all sit around and get catty. Joss Whedon has a unique and continuous style of dialogue and humor that permeates all of his work, much like Quentin Tarantino's scripts. It seems like each character is the same person, in their choice of words and smarmy but not-quite-rotten banter.
I liked the movie, but I swear Joss is one guy who could use a writing partner.
His boyfriend's name is Oscar.
Judging from your work on Zero Degrees you'll have to be doing a lot of "polishing" before you ever get your hands on an Oscar...
Are you familiar with a phrase about polishing a turd, Chig?
So why does your stupid ass have an All Time Worst Movies list on your page?
In fact, why do you have an All Time Favorites list either?
If someone isn't qualified to criticize something until they've proven themselves to be proficient at whatever it is they're criticizing, how can you yourself like or dislike anything that you aren't good at?
What qualifies you to ascertain whether or not you or someone else is good at whatever it is that you or they are taking part in?
You could look at all kinds of different criteria and claim that if someone doesn't meet them they're not allowed to criticize something that does.
Transformers is one of the worst movies of all time? You can't say that until you've made a movie with a hundred-fifty-million dollar budget yourself.
Don't like the Twilight books? Fuck you, let's see you write a series of novels that are turned in to a series of movies.
Don't like McDonald's food? Your opinion is invalid because you haven't created a multi-million dollar restaurant chain.
Or are you implying that winning an award somehow denotes the quality of one's work?
Oh, I'm sorry, I mean being nominated for one... or three...
Oh, my bad. Sorry, let me amend myself:
Transformers Revenge of the Fallen is one of the worst movies of all time? You can't say that until you've made a movie with a two-hundred-million dollar budget yourself.
Good thing the second film wasn't nominated for an Oscar itself, or I'd look like a real ass at the end of my last post.
Also, how could you like Transformers? You can't say that until you've made a movie with a hundred-fifty-million dollar budget yourself...
I like how your response doesn't even attempt to address or justify your shitty logic.
You're doing an excellent job trying to drive the subject away from the fact that you're an absolute fucking moron.
I thought that you didn't know what Zero Degrees was, now you're busy talking it up.
Make up your mind, dufus.
One nomination for sound doesn't mean jack shit? Harsh.
There's also a difference between being nominated for writing a screenplay, and being one of four people nominated for writing a screenplay.
How can you say that Transformers 2 is shit?
Michael Bay has won awards for his abilities as a movie maker!
Two of the three men who wrote its screenplay won Saturn Awards for writing the screenplay for Star Trek!
The third writer won a Saturn Award for writing Arlington Road!
Have you made a movie with a two-hundred-million dollar budget?
Have you won a Saturn Award?
Have you done anything that falls within the arbitrary guidelines I deem necessary in order for you to be able to like or dislike something?
No? Then shut the fuck up, cunt!!
And congratulations again on not rebutting any of the points that show how asinine your logic is.
I suppose after not addressing them at all during the course of two responses it's safe to assume that you've conceded to the notion that you're a dipshit who doesn't know what he's talking about.
Good work, jackass.
He's got you there Chig. You can't argue with such brilliant repartee.
No wonder he wants to be a writer.
Yes. I can't play piano. Therefore if someone is slamming on a piano I can't say suck at it.
Just to remind the people of M-Gizzle's expertise writing:
This man knows his shit, so I wouldn't question his flawless logic.
I really don't think it works that way...
Is that some sort of code for being a rape baby.
(This incredibly hypocritical cause I rarely pay for music)
