Roger Ebert is out of touch, again - he’s a guy that’s too analytical of things. He gave Bruno two thumbs up and gave it a great review. Now with Harry Potter he gave it a mixed review and only one thumb up - what ever that means. I despise critics, those people just can’t program their brains to have fun, they just have to think like robots and analyze every scene, trying to find some kind of meaning to everything! It’s just a story. All you have to do is sit back and try to enjoy the film.
But that’s what a critic does, they get paid vast sums of green to complain about any minor inconsistency and persuade the general audience to avoid this and that, because it does not meet their standards. I have standards of my own, but if I were to compare Bruno to Harry Potter: The Half Blood Prince, there would be no contest. Harry Potter has a lot more to offer, and it’s a charming picture that everyonce can enjoy. You see they underestimate the difficulty of adapting a great book and making a good picture out of it. They overlook everything, it’s appalling. Filmmakers spend years making their work, and then here come the bloodhounds - spewing their nonsense on the papers and feeding it to the general public in a matter of minutes. Critics are jealous bores who wish they could make any kind of film in general. It doesn’t occur to them that some people are only searching for entertainment and nothing more. Me, I like all kinds of films. Smart, entertaining, as long as it’s good and bearable. Bruno was a piece of shit, it’s not even a fucking movie. You wanna really laugh? Watch a Jerry Lewis film.
I know man, it’s terrible, someone has an educated opinion about something and wer’re forced to read it at gun point.
