There is nothing more obnoxious than someone who, when discussing anything artistic (books, movies, paintings, whatever) takes the stance of, "If you don't agree with me, then you're dumb. Because I get it."

Bullshit. Fuck you. Art is subjective. Always has been, always will be. You don't agree with my opinion, fine. That's your right and feel free to discuss it with me and try and change my mind. But don't try and tell me that my opinions are wrong because they don't fall in line with yours. That's pretentious hippie bullshit.

Why do you think awards like the Oscars, SAG Awards, etc. are decided on by the votes of thousands of people? Because if it was just one asshole going, "Good, good, bad, so-so, poor lighting, lame, Great!" then nobody would pay them any mind because they were just the opinion of one dude. You take a vote, the consensus wins. And even then they are debated endlessly afterwards (See: Goodfellas). But everyone respects the fact that, just because you don't agree, doesn't change the fact that a lot of other people did.

You want to state your opinion here? Cool. You don't agree with someone else's opinion? Even better. But don't be a child and say things like, "I didn't like it so neither should anyone else."
did you ever consider that i don't want to waste my time explaining how they're wrong because i see through their pretentious interpretation and based on their non-response to the points i've already made have no reason to expect they'll even try to comprehend my explanation or respond rationally?

i liked the movie. to pretend like it had no problems just because it was good enough for you is ludicrous.
