More About Criticism

I don’t like how it seems accepted that there is an objective view in regards to criticism. Take Mystery Science Theater 3000 for example, they mock “bad” movies, but I enjoy a few that they make fun of, and I am sure there are people who like movies that I don’t like. Appreciation is so subjective, I hate the band wagon mentality of the whole thing.

Star Wars Episode I I find is a well made movie, maybe I don’t think that some parts are perfect, but nothing really is. There is so much great craftsmanship in CG, camera work, and music that I can’t dismiss it as a bad movie. But lot’s of people in the fan community just hate it.

Food is like that too, some people like certain dishes and others don’t, I don’t like it when people see their view as absolute. It has an anti-democratic feel to it, this “not being able to have different views”. “You are with us or against us” is garbage.
