That's funny because when @A_Ron_Hubbard was saying (essentially), "If you don't like it, you don't get it", my immediate thought was, "Jesus, mate - now you just sound like a Lost stan."and 1 other.
And now we go into round 567 of The Lost Argument...
I had a long angry feminist rant written out, but you know what, fuck it. The kind of men who seriously complain about these dumb, harmless, ladies night kind of things don't listen to anything women say anyway. Go cry in a corner, dudes. No one cares that for one fucking night of your lives in one fucking cinema the world won't be revolving around you.
We don't all have time to sit around watching every show that comes out immediately. People read and contribute to these forums for various reasons, and if they come here to talk about X show but haven't caught up with Y show yet, then it's grossly unfair to tell them to just stay away from here. This is supposed to be an inclusive community of people. It is not a big ask to show a bit of consideration in how you title your threads.
Who cares about snacks, just pass the wine. ;-)
I would like to hear @A_Ron_Hubbard speak for a few minutes on his specific objections to The Usual Suspects, as I've heard him briefly rant about it many times. It's one of my favourite movies and I'd like to know why he hates it so much.
@tom_g I wouldn't include them, no. I mean people who have hated it for years and keep watching so they can complain about how shit it is and how much they hate it and how wrong everything is. I mean, yes the show has some issues but people go out of their way to nitpick every pissy thing and let's be real - it's a popcorn show. It presents as a straight drama but it's pure fluff and people seem to get so outraged about that.
I get why some might hate it, I don't begrudge some honest critiques of it, I am not a die hard fan girl and I've criticised plenty myself, but to be blunt the full on haters are a bloody downer. Who wants to read over and over and over again how shit something they enjoy is? I hate The Leftovers - like really really hate it. I think it's boring, pretentious garbage. But I don't continue to watch so I can go online every week and write 5 paragraphs about why I hated the episode this week. I just bailed.
