I think the bottom line with White is honesty.

I just don't believe he is always honest with the readers, or himself. And that is a pretty damning indictment of any critic.

You are in the denial phase. The first step is to admit you have a problem....and then do something about it. It's going to be pretty hard to reprogram your brain though.

Man, I'm out sick a few days and this whole thread blows up. Personally, I'd find it fun to see AW review other items. Hell, that could make an interesting thread for some of you fast-typing, creative guys out there.

AW reviews the new 2014 Corvette:

Go!

Here we go again, you just simply can't seem to accept that people have different opinions then you so you insult them, predictable :roll:

Me not liking those films is not a "problem" in any sense, you're the one that's in "denial" and who needs to be "reprogrammed" in order to accept other people's opinions.

In honor of my best of lists, the Kia Sorento is better than the Chevy Corvette. I find the corvette obtuse and offensive, and it does nothing to let the driver search for his soul or better the human condition. What political statement is the new corvette trying to make, if it's even trying to make one? If it is, I can't see it. Ignore the corvette and try out the new Kia Sorento. It's a true aesthetically pleasing machine, one that bernardo bertolucci could surely see the inner beauty in. Chevrolet only made the new corvette to help out the oil corporations, which I find completely disgusting. I also find the new corvette allows the police to racially profile black people, and it's just pure "torture porn" to be behind the wheel.

Ya, sorry. I simply can't accept someone who does not like It's A Wonderful Life. Do you like to drown little puppies too?...holy fuck! I hear you can eat dolphin too at underground tokyo places sicko!

Is your post supposed to be funny? :? Cause I don't see how anyone in any universe would laugh at that.

I just don't care for Frank Capra, his movies are a little too "sentimental" for my tastes. Do you like to kick cats for fun?
