There's a not too many in that sentence.

That'll teach me to proof before pressing OK.

I thought I mentioned this one before, but the reaction to the dance game levels from some Star Wars game last year was just ludicrous.

People who bully and belittle others who disagree with them, and then use cop out excuses when challenged like "Oh I didn't mean you, I just meant in general!"

And then cry "personal attack" or "oh it's only my opinion, I'm allowed my opinion! Am I not allowed an opinion???" etc.

Or even more hilariously when they resort to hyperbole, "Look, I'm just saying people should stop whining, I'm not turning up at their houses covered in blood carrying photo's of their recently deceased relatives that I've drawn on with Joker makeup!!"

It's usually the same people who say that who really lose it when someone else has an opinion they disagree with.

While maybe not the worst, the sheer level of disdain and resentment that's coming from some Marvel fans towards Iron Man 3 for its second act twist is quite shocking.

Granted, I can understand why it may not satisfy everyone, but reading some of the comments, one would think that they were being persecuted by the entire planet or something.

Yeah, I hate fans of franchises who claim the new ones are too different and aren't the 'real ones.'

Also the fanboys who cannot get around the fact that Man Of Steel is a complete reinvention of Superman and complain about John Williams themes not being used in the new film.

These people are seemingly unaware that every incarnation of Superman on screen has its own musical identity.The Reeve films had the themes composed by John Williams, the 90s animated series had themes composed by Shirley Walker, the Lois And Clark series had themes composed by Jay Gruska (etc).

Man Of Steel is yet another incarnation of a character who has existed in different media for 75 years now.From what iv heard of the MOS soundtrack by Hans Zimmer, it sounds great.

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.


Christ yeah. The gun barrel. "It's the wrong shape! It moves 1.5 degrees more to the left that it did in Dr No!" OH NO! Well now the orphans won't get new shoes!!!!

People who like the Chris Nolan Batmans can get decidedly arsey if you dare suggest they're a bit pretentious. To the point of saying you "just don't get films" (what someone said about Charlie Brooker for making the same observation).

I'd give the prize to my sister, though, for having the Star Trek symbol tattooed on the nape of her neck (long before the 'reboot'). I swear I was adopted.

It doesn't seem to be a remake of Superman 1 and 2 anymore than Batman Begins was a remake of Batman '89

And there are going to be similarities of course with the origin pretty much the same for Superman in all incarnations.

I once had a months-sprawling argument on youtube with someone who thought James Cameron was by far the greatest director of all time. We also argued about his love for Avatar and hate for Fincher's Dragon Tattoo, but it was mainly his Cameron fanboy-ism that astonished me. It wasn't just that he thought he was the best director - because, come on, we all have our favourite - , it was how he thought that everything that Cameron squeezes out of his arse is high art and all "A-movies", and he was repeatedly stating this view as if it was a solid, concrete fact of life; that Cameron is THE greatest filmmaker and that he "makes the likes of Spielberg, PTA, Fincher and Altman look inept".

Jaw-dropping, isn't it? And, I shit you not, when I told him that I couldn't disagree with him more he actually said "Well, you're entitled to your opinion, however misguided it may be". I just couldn't believe that this guy was for real. But at the same time, who puts that amount of time and effort into trolling someone? That was about a year ago now, and about a month ago I had a look at that youtube video and saw that he was still there in the comments, comparing himself to Einstein because everybody thinks he's full of shit for loving Avatar and that in time it will be appreciated for the "true masterpiece it really is".

I can't believe how much time I wasted trying to convince this delusional twerp that film is a subjective medium and movie quality is a matter of opinion. So, whenever I hear/read the word "fanboy", or "hitting head against a brick wall" for that matter, I immediately think of that colossal prick.

Excuse my language, but trust me it's justified.

The thread is about the most ridiculous display of fanboy-ism you've ever seen. Personally I find getting the logo from a television programme permanently etched onto your skin a bit more drastic than some keyboard warrior whinging about the new Bond. Call me old-fashioned.

I might add, she did in her 20s, now deeply regrets it and wears her hair down all the time.

Of course being totally the other way and being an "Anti-Fan Boy" and deciding you're going to hate everything a certain film maker has anything to do with even before it's released and then go around web forums making stupid "anti" statements just to see if you can get a rise out of people is just the height of cool and not at all like being a troll in the slightest.
