I still stand by it. I don't care if you agree with me or not, you need to watch the thing before you judge it. And when I say judge it, I mean the entire movie. You can call the trailer a piece of crap, and you can choose not to watch it because you didn't like the trailer, but if so, just say that. All I got from the first post was a guy laughing about how Brian's film tanked and saying he's not watching it because it's a steaming heap. If you haven't watched it, how do you know it's a heap? There was a Thomas film that a bunch of people - including myself - disliked, but one guy didn't even watch it and called it terrible, the worst thing to ever happen in the fandom, yadda. I called him out for it too. This kind of stuff just drives me nuts. You wouldn't call an entire album good / bad based on one song, would you? Stop doing the same with movies. I don't care about if you wanna watch it or if you did watch it or if you didn't or whatever. People just need to stop this mindless criticism without knowing what they're even talking about. Just say, "Yeah, I just don't like the look of it, so I don't think I'll watch it." Boom! Winner! But not, "Yeah, I don't like this movie. I won't watch it." That cancels everything out and drives me insane. All these mightier-than-thou attitudes - which I suppose you got from my posts too, and that wasn't my intention - are just killing me from the inside out. Eugh.
Blah, blah, blah.

@Sgt Floyd to be fair, he also jumped the gun and said don't watch the movie just because of the box office performance and reviews. That's where we kind of raised an eyebrow.

It also didn't help that, as Snowth pointed out, his post gave off a "my belief is right and yours is wrong" vibe from reading it.
My beliefs are always right. (wink)

where was he even criticizing the movie? he just said he doesn't want to see it because he doesnt like the idea of raunchy puppets. saying the movie was a bad idea isn't saying the movie is bad. something can be an absolutely god awful idea and still be good
Err... Huh?

Seriously dude


I understand you had a bad first impression of Brian. And I would also be crushed
But don't come attacking us because we believe you shouldn't criticise a film you haven't seen.


Oh and take it from me don't try and challenge @Old Thunder. It won't end well for you

There is no reason this thread should be closed; that's rude to the OP, however, I don't see why it can't be merged with the Happytime thread.

This thread is kinda the equivalent of Sesame suing Happytime Murders over the tagline, in that I agree with both sides (lol), but I really don't think OP needed this magnifying glass held to his post, but that's what forums are for: discussion, and I will never discourage anyone from that.

It doesn't help that everyone is misinterpreting what everyone is saying, but I would just merge the entire thread to the actual Happytime thread; it's still a civil discussion (but becoming more disastrous by the post) and has no reason to be closed, but some of the double-posts should be merged, and again, it's kind of redundant to have two separate threads.
