Don't know if this falls under the same banner but I hear Kermode got some unbelievably vitriolic flack for daring to champion the Twilight films. Why do people care enough about this to troll some guy who actually likes these films?

Also: people who drone on endlessly about Daniel "Blonde Bond Bouncer Thug" Craig being wrong for the role and the stupid cunting gun barrel being in the wrong place.

I think critics cop a lot of hate in general, let alone liking bad films. Some of the comments on old Siskel and Ebert vids on Youtube are horrific. I don't care how much you don't like someone or their opinions, making fun of them for having cancer is fucking awful.

The worst case was the critic who gave a negative to TDKR and got death threats for it.

Bryan Singer making Superman Returns.

Peter Jackson making King Kong.

The Star Wars fans who keep complaining about not having the original theatrical versions on blu ray.

Empires nothing but Hobbit coverage issue.

Yes, they should show the restraint they do when they give Star Wars a few pages here and there.

On the bright side it is no where to the level it used to be. I can remember about four issues I purchased and then never bothered reading other than scanning through because it was about 80% Star Wars.

I haven't read the magazine in a dog's age. Was the coverage really that OTT or is it non-fans bitching over nothing?

Oh, it was Hobbit-heavy, but no more so than when they do a Star Wars special.

So yeah, it's the usual hypocritical "it's fanboy rubbish cos I don't like it" whining rubbish spewed out as usual.

Thing is, I bet that the people who gave Kermode a hard time for liking Twilight are Star Wars and Transformers fans. And the Twilight films are a hundred times more mature than Bay's sexist crap and those awful SW prequels.

As for the cancer jibes - well, ninety percent of people who have message board/comment section accounts on film websites are pondscum.

I would rather watch The Transformers films then Twilight any day. Don't always agree with Kermode he does go over the top to much. The Cancer jibes are stupid.

In the article he did direct a jibe towards some films which haven't even begun filming, but even then that's no excuse for insulting anyone let alone Kermode.

As everyone knows, Evil Dead 2 is awesome. However, the Evil Dead 2 Bluray is shit. Stick to the DVD.

An example of a fanboy, not fanatical fanboyism.

I'll still ban you for dissing Evil Dead 2 though...

the sort of person who has to watch Star Wars at least half a dozen times day and actually think they are Jedi Knights by dressing as such and speaking shit whilst at the same time playing with a fluorescent tube.

Christopher Nolan bum-kissing. Can't stand it. The guy makes ok films, but hell some people are just nuts.

Also, writing that reminds me: My second fanboy gripe is not being able to write something like that /\ /\ /\ /\ without someone calling you a troll. Saying something honest that contradicts another persons views is not always trolling. Fanboys have a problem understanding this.

It is more about presenting a valid debate on why he is not good/is good which makes it trolling or not. Often people just say "He is rubbish" and then will not elaborate on why he is or vice versa support someone without having any rationale on why it is "sooooooooo good".

What about when they claim "you know nothing about Bond films" because you're OK with the gun barrel being at the end of the movie.

The Star Wars '' fans'' who constantly moan and whinge about the original trilogy not being released '' properly '' on dvd/blu and who instead buy '' despecialised '' editions ( I.E.- Bootleg ) off the internet.

The James Bond "fans" who constantly moan about Daniel Craig being blonde and not being handsome enough for the role who "claim" they won't watch the films yet seem to still believe they're entitled to an opinion about it.
