Sometimes I feel that people go into a movie intending to dislike it.

I feel you should go into every movie hoping to enjoy something. Even if it looks stupid (i.e. Transformers 2). If a film can’t make you pause your qualms you might have had before, then hey, you have a bad movie (i.e. I never forgot Transformers 2 was pretty stupid)

This is especially true when it comes to reviewing a movie.

I just read 2 reviews today that were pretty critical of Shame. But rather than feel hateful about their criticisms I felt enlightened by their point of view, because they obviously went in hoping for the best but finding a little qualm here and there. Which they both also were able to express clearly and concisely and I could understand and appreciate what they liked and didn’t like.

Then I read this other review just now that completely went in to bash Shame from the beginning and went on quite a rant about how improbable it was that Michael Fassbender could pick up so many women so easily. I could see someone mentioning this point briefly and moving on, but no… this person made their whole review about this one point. I only felt like this person was attempting to express a different opinion then everybody else and therefore their argument only seemed contrived and insincere. To me, it seemed the writer was only pissed that picking up women was made to look so easy and in effect, no real enlightened statements were made about the film or film making in general.
