    He lost me at that bizarre analogy of Avengers being a dog show or something?

    So Ebert has reviewed this

    He seemed to like it, but his review is... rather empty. It's like the guy wrote it about the trailers, saw the film in order to determine his star-rating, and then couldn't be bothered to go back and edit some actual specific commentary into the thing. And to boot there's a slightly condescending undertone of vague contempt for comicbook fans and their explosiony movies, which just strikes me as cringingly backward from a learned bespectacled film buff

    I was kind of hoping for something more akin to his Iron Man review, but c'est la vie

    Everything I hear about Roger Ebert makes me like him less and less

    Which is a shame since he usually doesn't resort to such cheap shots for the sake of a review.

    Admittedly the only time I hear about him is when he says something stupid

  • AntimatterAntimatter Registered User regular
    Ebert is awesome when ripping apart genuinely bad movies

    ebert is one of the few film critics i will read

    dude likes some cool stuff, and generally writes good reviews

    sometimes though, dude just is off base

  • SolarSolar Registered User regular
    Well he sounds pretty terrible to me

    but then, my opinion on the entire subject is quite negative in the first place

    so yeah, unsurprising I guess

    ebert saddens me because he's obviously such a clever dude but then his arguments are always so specious

    and his reviews are always that devoid of content. he never sees fit to explain what's good and bad about a film, rather he just makes snide remarks about arbitrary details. it's maddening.

    One time, I had a friend over to play a bit of Red Alert on my LAN. During the game he said he needed to go to the bathroom, so we paused it. After about 10 minutes of wondering where the hell he went, I get up and go to check on him.

    Turns out he was trying to screw my dog.
    Once I was taking a poop at a restaurant and a kid crept underneath the door into my stall. I let out a big fart and then he threw up all over the floor in front of me and I just stared at him.

    I have never really liked Ebert.

    I trust @The Lovely Bastard more than Ebert and I know for a fact that he unironically enjoys the later Killer Tomatoes films.

    anti have you read superior

    it's pretty good

  • AntimatterAntimatter Registered User regular
    I haven't

    Nor old man Logan

    Nor 1985

    Basically the good Millar stuff I've read is Morrison's so I have a hard time believing Millar can actually write

    Kick-Ass was an extreme take on mindless action in a nihilstic kind of way.

    Typically I don't care for that kind of thing, but Nic Cage really sold me.

    basically I like MIllar as long as he's working with the premise of "heroism is good" as opposed to "fuck you"

    and that is definitely the premise of Superior it is basically that one all-star-superman page you should read it

    Nah I totally enjoyed the shit out of them, too.

    That is why I trust your opinion more than Ebert's.

    Fun fact Thor's political beliefs are closer to Millars than any other of his characters

    He just writes republican jerks for some reason

    I did like Ultimates and Ultimates 2 but grant did edit the former, ghost write an ish

    I feel as he has gotten older Ebert has just behold a grumpy old man.

    And will prejudge a movie before he watches it.

    I can't remember the last time I read one of his reviews that wasn't linked from here because of "outrage".
