Feeder 3.3 - You Don't Like Video Games ..

In the article "Scott Pilgrim Reviews Reveal What Film Critics Really Think of Gamers", critics act harshly against movies they down right dislike. These people will destroy a movie or maybe even hurt someone's feelings. With the reviews they post, it is obvious they don't think about anyone except themselves because they don't hold anything back. They believe that you are a 12 year old dork with ADD, who doesn't have a life. Not only did it go for the movie, but the same effect apparently also went for video games. Most people who play games find it artistic and entertaining, while others like Roger Ebert think its not artistic enough. This leaves me thinking that the critics will always do what they do and act harshly, unless it's something they like.
Why do critics write the way they write? This is a great question i asked myself because even though I haven't seen the movie "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World", I honestly don't believe that it was bad movie. Although critics write reviews that are completely negative, we will never know why they write the things they do with such harsh words. I know their job is to watch films and give their honest opinions, but is it too much to ask to actually appreciate AND like a film, rather than dislike.

  1. Your summary is missing about 75% of the article, Jamaal, and it's a little biased.

    Also, you don't really state a position; you just disagree.
