Discussions in The Spoon

I was going through some recent comments when I was struck with a sudden realization: hardly anybody disagrees with me. Now I'm not so conceited that I believe I'm always right, and I know for a fact that I'm not because I totally got called out on my exclusion of some big name child stars in yesterday's post about the trials of childhood stardom.

Andersoncm brought this lack of -- how should I say it? -- "vigorous" debate in The Spoon into focus when he disagreed with my negative review of Balls of Fury and opined that the film was "hilarious" with a "great cast" and a "hot chick." He also called me a douchebag, but that's beside the point.

Balls of Fury is a source of much debate in addition to being a source of much testicle grabbing

In response to his comments I wrote:
I go into every movie hoping to see greatness and my reviews are my honest opinions. I may be critical of some movies (like BoF) but that doesn't mean I'm criticizing your or anyone else's taste in movies.
Immediately after typing this I realized I was telling the truth. I know that people shouldn't be judged by their taste in movies -- hell, I liked Failure to Launch so what does that say about me? -- so I hope nobody is avoiding disagreeing with me for fear of criticism or my incessant tendency to stalk. As long as we're all respectful I welcome any and all discussions at The Spoon.

Come with me if you want to discuss movies

Consider this an open invitation to disagree -- or agree -- with me anytime you darn well feel like it.

Hell, half the time I haven't seen the movie you review yet...

Well I did disagree about brownies being delicious without nuts.

silver - I think somebody needs to watch some more movies. I won't say who, but her name starts with "silver" and ends with "neurotic" and is whimsically threaded with squiggly lines and asterisks. Whoever could it be?

april - You, madam, are the Guy Fawkes of brownie nuts. (Perhaps we should agree to disagree)

Another point to ponder: people probably wouldn't read your site if they disagreed with you all of the time and/or shared totally different tastes. Not an absolute rule, but I'm thinking that has a lot to do with it.

Matt said...

fletch - I hadn't thought of that. Judging from my site statistics that means about 1 out of every 50 people actually agrees with me. Now I know how Howard Stern feels.

Alrighty then.
