The media, instead of being the check and balance to the system existing in direct opposition to it, have become part of it. Modern film critics, from the pages of popular websites and newspapers down to the trolls trashing movies from their basements, have become a de facto division of the film industry’s marketing departments. They don’t think for themselves, they don’t judge the film before them, and they certainly exist to reinforce the leftist stranglehold on the entertainment industry.Surely there is some critic out there who is not spouting the communist party line. Right? Who do the other critics hate?
I don’t take the media at face value. Decades of being lied to have taught me to research on my own and develop my own, educated opinions. Is [Armond] White simply an Internet troll, purposely dissing what others praise in an attempt to gain attention? Or is he something more, a critic not only of film, but of the entire media? And, in what is truly relevant to Big Hollywood, what do White’s reviews and media criticisms tell us about the ingrained leftist thought in the Hollywood/Media complex?If you are not giggling this may help.
My research revealed that White may be the last, best hope for real, intellectual film criticism left in the age of the Internet.
