It is.

Doesn't necessarily make it a great or horrible movie in anyone/everyone's eyes.

If people liked it then they will think it is good as opposed to bad, and vice versa.

Some real heavy & deep evaluation & logic there.

Movies snobs, they're the worst.

Besides uneducated pizza snobs.

Howard the Duck and Ishtar will never be The Shawshank Redeption no matter how much one person loves them, FUDU. Whuile tastes and personal meaning have a plce to be sure, the argument of pure subjectivity doesn't hold up.

Thus a comic book character running around in a ruber suit can never a serious classic make.

DJ Gallo with an all-too-infrequent bit of brilliance regarding TDKR

He's far more consistent with Sportspickle than on ESPN.com though:

DKR did set the box office record though, for...


....most nerd angst of all time prior to a release. "My expectations were so much....gah derp derp derp"

Settle down and enjoy the movie, dorks.

That quote doesnt apply because I am open minded to superhero movies NOT being able to be taken seriously as a film. This just isnt the case with this one.
