These Kids Today!

A jackass dinosaur of a critic laments the rise of blogger-critics, as yet another extension of this debate.

His entire article has the tone of an crotchety old man indignant about becoming old and useless. Why do old people always do this? I really hope I have better sense when I’m an old crone.

I’ll let Chuck and his commenters do the more eloquent dismantling.

    Well said. Jackass dinosaur, indeed! And while film bloggers are paying attention to worthy films with thoughtful analysis, Roger Ebert goes and publishes a volume of bad movie reviews titled Your Movie Sucks. Necessary? Do we really need to be spend our time reading Ebert’s analysis of bad Rob Schneider movies? I don’t think so.

    Actually, Ebert’s bad movie reviews are, more often than not and on their own literary merit, pretty damn funny. I think he’d agree that the volume isn’t so much in the way of criticism as it is entertainment.
