Negative Opinions Not Allowed?

This is a thing I really hate with people. As soon as you "DARE" to have a negative opinion about a movie you've only seen a trailer to and not seen the whole thing, they DEMAND you to watch it before judging it.
Meanwhile, they're completely fine with being hypocritical right away when it comes to judging it in POSITIVE ways before watching it. And since it never seems to get to them how stupid it sounds, I decided now to make this comic.

It actually triggered me now because of all the hype with the Batman v Superman movie, but I intentionally made it ambigious in this strip so that anyone can relate to it. Not to mention, it helps this comic strip to feel less dated.

their facial expressions kinda remind me of the Peanuts gang

:XD: I probably unintentionally took influence from it, since I was always amused by the facial expressions in Peanuts.

In the words of Metallica: sad but true.

Yeah it just sucks how some people completely treat someone like a weirdo as soon as that person says that he thinks that a movie is shit based on the trailer and yet they never seem to criticize a person who says that the movie is going to be good just because that person liked the trailer -.-.Also wanna know what I find even funnier?When people tell you that you can't hate a celebrity because you don't know him or her and yet they find nothing wrong with someone loving and obsessing over a celebrity even though that person doesn't know him/her either-.-

Yeah, indeed. I mean, I get that people react stronger to negative opinions than positive opinions. But it's so annoying how they keep giving bullshit reasons for why you're not allowed to criticise anything or anyone.

Though, what it reminds me of now speaking of celebrities is when people are being whiny over you feeling sad when a celebrity you're a fan of dies. "Millions of starving kids die, no one cares. One rich celebrity dies, everyone cares." - That is such horrible guilt-tripping. Of course we feel more sad over people dying we know anything about. "You don't know the celebrity!" - Well, we do, just not personally. Starving kids dying is really sad, but it will solve jack shit to be crying over that 24/7.

Yeah thats terrible as well.I mean,these people don't even try to think that this person is probably crying because that celebrity was a big inspiration to him,who knows maybe this celebrity's quotes/songs/book/movies/art etc actually helped him to get over hard times that he/she had to face in life,so of course that this person will be crying that his favorite celebrity died.Also yeah,it sucks of course how they basically want to make people feel guilty for something that isn't even they own damn fault.Also if these people are so damn concerned about kids starving that why the hell don't they get they own lazy asses up to try to help them instead of trying to make other people feel guilty?

Indeed. Couldn't agree more.

Felt the same way about Ghostbusters. The talent behind it had me excited. Three trailers later, I was like "Nope!". I spent the money a movie ticket would have cost me, and got the first season of "The Real Ghostbusters" off of Google Play instead. 
The last time I ignored my gut and saw a movie anyway, despite trailers not selling me on it was Tristar's Godzilla, and we all know how that turned out.
KurvosVicky's avatar
Yeah. I myself avoid the new Ghostbusters movie for the reason of it simply not being in canon with the previous two movies. Not only was the game in canon with the two movies, but the animated show technically was as well. But, this new movie couldn't be bothered... because, "girls must develop everything by themselves, they need no men". XP

For me it was that the trailers didn't sell me, but also Sony's attitude. They went on the all out assault, against anyone who publicly decried to movie. Then they started spending money to pay affiliates to write puff pieces about it.
The most tasteless thing they did was use what happened to Leslie Jones on Twitter, as publicity for the movie. What the actual fuck? You don't turn someone's personal problems into dollar signs like that!
 
KurvosVicky's avatar
Yeah, indeed. I made a journal explaining all my own reasons for avoiding the new Ghostbusters movie, so I'll link to that in case you're curious: fav.me/daa2nz8
Easier that way than for me to repeat stuff I've said there. :XD:

Very good points. Especially about J.J. Abrams handling criticism the right way.
Also a good point about the CG. When you dial the effects back, they look more believable. A good example of this are the Remastered editions of the original Star Trek. They used CG, but did so in a way, that if you didn't know before hand, you'd completely miss that you were watching a scene with it added.
KurvosVicky's avatar
Thanks. ^^ And yeah, CGI should only be used if necessary - and when used, try to make it look as real as possible. Or else, it will just be distracting.

Well I grew up watching ToS, and I was very apprehensive, when I first heard they were "remastering" it. Instantly my mind went to how George Lucas "fixed" the original Star Wars trilogy with CG footage. But no, CBS and Paramount went in a completely different direction. They didn't beat you in the head with it. Its all subtle fixes. Some space scenes that were redone completely were aged to look like they're from the same footage as the show. 

But back to how Abrams handled controversy. He even handled "How to do a reboot' properly. As in the film its established that the original timeline was not overwritten, that everything the characters are experiencing is an alternate timeline.
This leaves the original timeline, and universe completely intact. Nothing was overwritten.

To be fair though, SOME of the CGI additions Lucas did to the original trilogy were great. It's just a pity he went overboard with it. XP

Indeed. Sure, the EU outside of the main 6 movies and the Clone Wars show were written out of continuity - but not only was that Disney's fault and not Abrams', but it's understandable. To keep track of all that EU stuff would be a pure nightmare. But it's definitely nice they just try to keep going with this universe and not act like Force Awakens is the start of a new continuity.

How dare you?! XD LOL
Yeah, but seriously. It's just so silly how people feel like lecturing your opinions prior to watching a movie ONLY if it goes against what they think themselves.

There's a difference between being curious to see a movie and being already 100% cock sure it's good without having seen it.

Vicky, I want to quote your comment in my book review, can I do it? Of course I will credit you and post the link to the original post.
KurvosVicky's avatar
I'd be honored if you wanted to quote me and show people this comic along with it. ^^ I made this comic to make a point, after all.
vampirekiki's avatar
Thanks~I will share this entry and the comic.

That happens a lot on discussion of books too! Whenever I said I prediced a soon-to-be-released book to be sucky because the other books by the same author suck so much, those raid fans would jump up and lecture me about YOU SHOULDN'T JUDGE A BOOK BEFORE YOU READ IT. But they never said anything about judging  it positively or even rating them 5 stars before they read them. *annoyed*
