"So let me get this straight... you presume to judge me for not wanting to see a movie that I'm reasonably certain I wouldn't like (by it sharing characteristics with other films I didn't like)"When did I judge you? I said that it is not fair of your to do so. I also said that it was close-minded.
" then importune me to watch it- which I acquiesce to, even going so far as to critique it on my channel if you'll do the same on yours with another movie"I really do not see why you are so offended. I have approached this cordially. I never asked that you critique the movie. I never requested you watch the film. I simply stated that it is unfair of you to cast definitive judgement before you watch said film.
"if you'll do the same on yours with another movie-"Why must I agree to do something you typically do on your channel just to prove my point? Why can you not simply take a step back...as I did...and think about what I am saying.
" and you have the gall to quote me (misquote and misspell in the rebuttals as well)"
*So now you are an English major grading my comments on a post? Seriously?! I do not know how many times you have mispoke on posts, comments, and podcasts, yet I never called you out or condescend you. *
"obliquely side stepping the issue by claiming you don't review movies?! "Please explain how this is sidestepping. You made a comment based on no facts. I challenged said comment. Your solution is to have me review something if you are to review said movie when I never asked you to review anything. I simply asked you to be open...especially since you have not seen said movie...which you admitted to. You can have an opinion or idea about a movie. That does not make it fact if you have not seen it. Feelings are not facts.
"That is an absolute and total cop out and utter and complete bullshit."It is not a cop out. When did I decline? Did I? I think not. I was simply asking why should I review a movie just for the sake of you reviewing one. It seems superfluous.
"You do not have the right to lecture me on what movies I should watch or shouldn't watch and damn sure not on what opinions I should or should not have concerning those films. Especially when you don't review movies."So basically what you are saying is that you are immune to other opinions? Maybe that you see yourself as having a more valid opinion...which is based solely on NOT seeing said film. When did I lecture you? I challenged your way of thinking. Simple. You sound like a professor debating a student. I never said you should not have your opinions. I said it is not fair for you to make that assumption as fact when you have not seen the movie. Calm down. You reviewing movies does not make you a better critic. Just saying. No high horse needed.
