I’m fed up with critics almost more than I can bear. I really have no idea what those people want from movies anymore. Look at the critics vs the audience for movies like Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. The difference between what each of those groups of people want in movies is staggering, and – once again – after the audiences told the critics that they’re wrong, the critics started writing apologetic letters trying to backtrack for their hatred. I don’t get it. What the hell are critics looking for in a movie nowadays? Apparently, “entertainment” doesn’t seem to be a part of that.
