Well, I'm happy you're amused.

I wasn't offended. Where did I say that? And why would I be offended? I implied it was something about the film I found to be not necessary/annoying.

I love how whenever folks here have an opinion regarding something, the person that disagrees can't simply "disagree". There has to be some subtext taking issue with the person almost on a personal level.

If something about a movie for instance, big or small I don't find necessary, why is such a big deal that my personal tastes don't coincide with yours? I don't like a scene. That should be the end of it. If you want to talk about whether it serves the narrative, fine. But whether I personally find it good or bad aesthetically is a matter of taste, and that is irrelevant. There are scenes within a lot movies that I don't like, but I understand why it's there and I understand that it pushes the story. This particular one I didn't like, and found that it didn't serve the narrative.

Because, like you stated, you have the freedom to state your opinion, but that doesn't mean you have the freedom to avoid me responding to your opinion. Especially since you're posting it in a public forum.

Right, we were already discussing that. And like I said, that's fine. I'm not avoiding how my opinion fits into the context of the story. Just when you keep telling me "it's not a big deal" via metaphors, I'm trying to tell you there is a difference between how I feel about a certain scene or piece of dialogue if I like it or not (personal taste) and whether or not it should be in the context of a story because of classic storytelling tropes. Like I mentioned earlier there are scenes in other films which I don't like, but still believe is necessary to be where those scenes are placed because it serves the narrative. The ladder approach of the two outlines I pointed out we can debate forever, and that's not the issue. Fine, whatever The first though, like when you say something about a mountain/moehill or something...I mean it's like you're essentially telling how I should feel about something within the context of the film. My taste. So I'm just not sure why you keep coming at that angle. It's like essentially saying "I like" or "I don't like" something subjective having to do with personal taste isn't good enough.

But "let it go" Drew. Don't want to ruin the SWDC circlejerk clique.
