Couldn't stand her voice. Mann was a stupid stupid choice for Xtina.
But I still think Jamar could have won it all if Cee-Lo went with him. Jamar was my absolute fave. He had it all.
It's not even a bad review but it's also that "Well if you enjoyed it on this and this and that makes up most of the movie then you should give it a positive review and not swirl your opinion around"
Ebert did that with X Men First Class and that broke one of his rules of criticism. He said it was a well made movie but gave it two stars or a thumbs down when his main point of criticism is if the movie sets out what it sets out to do, then it did the job. Guy thumbed up Home Alone 3 on these ground.
And A.O. Scott swirls his opinion around a lot just from watching him on At the Movies.
Ugh, it was a good review until he hit that point you just said. He is criticizing it for doing the things that the genre is supposed to do. How stupid. It's a blockbuster movie, what did he expect? Even outside of superhero films, I can't think of a funner, wittier, smarter, and more entertaining summer action flick than the Avengers and he still wanted more? Gimme a break.
