“I don’t listen to critics, I decide for myself”.
This one, of course, implies that anyone who researches what film critics say, is some type of automaton, and doesn’t think for oneself. Bullshit. There are roughly one thousand films released each calendar year. Does anyone see ALL of them? Of course not. Critics are a guide. At this point, I know which ones I can usually trust. Are they 100% on-the-money? Umm–who is? But the better ones keep you away from the crap. In other words…I think for myself too, bozo. But I’m not all-knowing and all-seeing!
