Another January has come to an end, and so has another month of Avatar being out in theaters. The big Hollywood hit has beaten Titanic as the highest grossing movie of all time.
Obviously, the creators have produced something of true value. On the other hand, there are those “movie buffs” who always feel the need to nitpick every last detail…
You know what really boils my egg?
People who refuse to like a popular movie. Everyone has that one friend who sees a new movie and feels the need to say, “I saw it. But it was lame.” It’s the same person who watches a really obscure movie and claims it as the “movie of the year.”
I will not deny that the scripting for the Transformers movies is not top notch. Nor will I deny that Avatar shows resemblance to Dances with Wolves, a movie from 1990.
But this does not take away from the value of the entertainment it gives. I get so annoyed when these people use the excuse of the movie being “too hyped up.”
Of course a popular movie is going to be hyped up. That is usually the case because most fans truly enjoyed something out of the film’s cinematic value.
Whether it’s an exploding bus, a steamy sex scene, or a huge plot twist, films have a lot to offer in the entertainment department.
Those who are gung-ho on antagonizing a film completely refuse to listen to the positives, instead of analyzing the good and the bad. It is their loss of ten dollars, I suppose.
Consider this egg: boiled.
