    Ever noticed how the worst movie critics in history are the ones to use the biggest words/longest sentences to describe a single statement.

    Wait – why are critics "dumb" because they don't agree with mainstream opinion? Most of those views I disagree with, but they're perfectly valid opinions nonetheless. Also using only contemporaneous reviews is condescending because it suggests that they're quaintly out of touch for not knowing what mainstream reviewers would think years after the event, and by extension that "knowledge" has anything to do with it. The only thing dumb in this thread is the assumption that you can measure dumbness by whether someone liked or disliked Die Hard in 1989. That's not dumb – that's imbecilic.

    But Goodfellas *does* suck. I want my two hours back from that movie.

    Wow, Vincent Canby was really an idiot. Not only did he pan Godfather II and Empire Strikes Back, he also hated Rocky, which went on to win Best Picture. Probably one of the worst film critics of all time.

    But it's a redemption! What mystery would you leave it with?
