I'm not crazy about Citizen Kane, either...
We're done here.
I learned a long time ago to think outside of a textbook DESPITE what my college professors tried to do to me.
There are maybe 2-3 teachers that I've had in my entire life that I thought were actually good! Do you know why?!?!? Because they didn't just encourage me to spit out facts from a book! They wanted people to think and reason for themselves.
How many people NEVER see these films and actually just accept what a textbook or film studies professor tells them?!??!
You know what, I saw Citizen Kane for the first time in a college course over 15 years ago! The prof of that course (who was a filmmaker) didn't care for the film, either, for the same reasons that I don't... It's a well-shot film, no doubt, but it is cold and VERY sterile. I don't know about you but I HATE hospitals and I DO NOT like sitting through clinical-feeling films, either!
It's perfectly okay NOT to like things despite what a stuffed shirt tells you!
You like the film, fine, BUT DON'T IMPLY that other people don't have taste because they don't like it, either.
I'm perfectly okay with people NOT liking The Beatles, Star Wars, Star Trek, or superheroes despite my own preferences.
I get annoyed with that stuff, too, at times, which is why I LIKE parodies...
I even get WHY people don't like Disney films, either. I certainly DO NOT like all the Disney films and that was before things changed at that company.
What I do not care for is hearing that my opinion (or ANYBODY ELSE'S) is dismissed because it does not meet approval with a commission's or ISN'T politically correct.
I am certainly NOT EricJ or some other guy that just spews out stuff without having a clue about what he's talking about. I also DO NOT like to step on other people's toes for the hell of it!
And this is precisely why I have you on IGNORE, too... I just happened to 'un-Ignore' and Display the Post and you showed me something -- NOT good!
Thank you very much for pissing on me with your cute comment!
Gentlemen, I am done here... CANCEL MY ACCOUNT... I am NOT coming back.
Nobody should put up with that attitude!
