I was just kidding.
I’m getting married tomorrow! I’m so excited!
Holy fuck, Cowboys and Aliens comes out the day before my birthday. MUST SEE. ._.
I often check yahoo movies to see ratings. I prefer it to other sites because they use letter grades rather than a numeric score. They have two letter grades for each movie: one from the critics, and one from users.
I find it curious that while most user reviews are written by people who do not know how to articulate their thoughts coherently (let alone use the english language correctly), the combined average user grade is often more sensible than the combined average critic’s grade. I guess it goes to show that the collective consciousness wins again, even if the majority of the collective has the writing aptitude of a slow 12 year-old with a concussion.
Please excuse my … pointlessness. If you disagree, you probably have a good reason. I’m very tired. Good fuckin’ night.
PS. I must say that both critics and users got it wrong with Tron: Legacy. That was honestly one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen in theaters. I’d give it a D+, and the + is just because it looked pretty, and had a sexy girl. ;)
Also, on a completely less important note: The difference between movie sequels and video game sequels is that for videogame sequels, unlike movie sequels, people want to see more of the same, just in a prettier, more up-to-date package. That’s why they are actually successful.
I can’t help but notice though that indy games are usually 10x more original and thought-provoking than mainstream shtuff, yet they often don’t get (or need) sequels. Portal 2 is an exception ;)
