When did "but its a fun movie" get introduced as a way to completely dismiss all shortcomings of a movie?
And why is it so fucking infuriating?
Not every movie has to be a fucking life-changing experience you autistic asshole.
Some people actually live there own live instead of vicariously through the Hollywood money-machine. You should try getting out of your basement and engaging in the struggle of life once in a while, then you might appreciate the occasional light diversion.
Because liking a movie, and calling it a "good" movie are two different things entirely.
Some of my favorite movies are absolute trash artistically speaking, but remain enjoyable. I would never argue their merits, but if someone tries to critique the "core" on its merits as a film, then they're the asshole in the situation.
There's nothing more autistic and retarded than supposed "cinephiles" that watch flicks or movies and then complain about them being stupid. It's like calling yourself a food critic and then complaining that the EXTRA HOT EXTRA SPICY CHICKEN (or whatever) is spicy
I do actually understand how you feel. It's honestly rarely worth while to attempt to discuss film and music in any significant depth outside of an appropriate forum. It's like being a car enthusiast and trying to talk to someone about it with some who has a 'any car will do' mentality, not to say there's anything at all wrong with that.
I'd rather have a normie who would admit that they watched a movie with flaws than some pleb who only says its fun because they can't form any opinion of it
Most people don't put any thought into movies, I can tell you that much. If you expect to have any kind of meaningful conversation outside of dedicated forums you'll be disappointed.
and no, /tv/ is not a dedicated forum
What makes a film "trash, artistically"?
Can a comedy have artistic merit? It seems to be the genre that people trash the most and look down upon, implying there's no art in humor.
