12/21/2016 update:This post was written long before I had a clue about systematic oppression or ableist language. I've edited the post to remove most of the problematic bits so as to stop any damage they could cause in the future.
What it means is we tend to have varying opinions regarding our entertainment choices. And the reason I bring this up both before and now is the legions of obnoxious people who insist their opinion is the right one. Not only that, but if you dare to think otherwise, then according to them, you're a m*ron who should be ignored. (Half the IMDB threads for The Hunger Games are fans and non-fans arguing over who's less intelligent.)
This is something I can't stand. (That, and when reviewers use crude imagery to express their displeasure.) Reviews should not be you saying "Agree with me or else you're st*pid." Because you aren't me. You don't have all my biases and personal preferences. I want to know why you thought it was great or awful. Just saying whoever loves/hates it is wrong tells me only that you're narrow-minded.
There are bad movies. Some have downright messed-up morals. But as I've said before, this isn't an issue of morality.
I'm not going to allow that sort of crap here. So go check out the reviews I've posted (and there will be a few more this month) and feel free to complain about or gush over whatever you want, regardless of what I had to say. But don't be insulting me or other people because we didn't happen to find it as wonderful or sucky as you did. If you can manage that, you'll be fine.
Anyway, most of you are probably visiting my blog for the first time today. Thanks for reading this, and this month during the challenge, I'll be posting mainly rants and reviews. Hope you like it. I probably won't get to moderating comments and posting updates on social media until the afternoon, especially on Mondays.
If this post interested you and you'd like to hear more, you can follow me on Google+ and Twitter. I post pretty much the same stuff on both.
You can read my other rants about this here and here.
