I had a debate with someone on YouTube over Terrence Malick's movies. Just a few comments in, he calls me pretentious for defending his work. Typical.

Well every site has it's share of idiots, best you can do is not take the bait. The IMDB forums are particularly bad about movie discussions.

32. Saving Silverman (2001):
“Saving Silverman is so bad in so many different ways that perhaps you should see it, as an example of the lowest slopes of the bell-shaped curve. This is the kind of movie that gives even its defenders fits of desperation. Consider my friend James Berardinelli, the best of the Web-based critics. No doubt 10 days of oxygen deprivation at the Sundance Film Festival helped inspire his three-star review, in which he reports optimistically, ‘Saving Silverman has its share of pratfalls and slapstick moments, but there’s almost no flatulence.’ Here’s a critical rule of thumb: You know you’re in trouble when you’re reduced to praising a movie for its absence of fart jokes, and have to add ‘almost.’”
