    This guy’s funny. Why did he rent a George Cloony movie if he obviously hates him?

  • Justin Garrett Blum says:

    Yeah, I often wonder about people who rent movies they know they’re going to hate. What’s the point? Is it really worth it just to have some material for a scathing user review on the IMDb?

    I mean, I’ve never seen that movie because it didn’t interest me. I didn’t avoid it because of politics or any animosity toward Clooney, who I generally like and whose political beliefs I probably share. I just didn’t think it looked like an entertaining movie. So I can’t understand why somebody who already hates Clooney and who disagrees with him politically would actively see this movie and then complain about it afterward. Oh wait, I guess that’s why he saw it.

Political films and propaganda

Okay, another completely absurd review from the Internet Movie Database with regards to The Ides of March. I’m sharing this one not only because it’s barely literate and nonsensical, but also because I think that in a weird way, it kind of explains why Ides was a pretty good film.

    hahahahhahhaaa.

    I can’t even finish it, but you’re right; it’s hilarious.

    Now I’ll have to see this just to see what everyones bitching about! The one person I spoke to about this film said it was a good film but took a long time to get anywhere.

      I don’t think I’d agree with the person who said it took a long time to get anywhere. The various intrigues begin developing fairly early on, and it isn’t an exceptionally long movie (101 minutes), so it shouldn’t strain your attention span.

Somebody please kick this guy in the balls

I watched The Ides of March tonight, and so I’m doing my customary activity of reading user reviews on the Internet Movie Database just to see how my appraisal holds up against other common men and women. I found it to be a fairly well-layered story, by the way, that I’m still working to fully peel apart in my mind. I liked it.

Anyway, what follows is amongst the most obnoxious reviews I’ve read in my entire life. There isn’t a single line within that is actually coherent, but the hilarious thing about it is how goddamn awesome this guy thinks he is because of his facility with a thesaurus. It’s so god-awful, it must be shared. And no, I’m not going to cut him any slack just because he’s from Prague. This shit reeks with the arrogance of stupidity in any language.
