  1. I’m not too thrilled about the Cinefix guys assumptions that…

    “Everybody that read the graphic novel pretty much universally hated this movie..”

    “Yes, we can pretty much agree that Zack Snyder butchered “Man of Steel”..”

    I know some people on here are of that opinion too, but personally I find tha wayt too much of a sweeping assumption.

    • In case you are wondering what a “wayt” is, I’m not telling you.

      • Damn you, the wayt is killing me.

  2. I agree. Please stop posting this incestuous Cinefix garbage. If you guys have some sort of monetary reason that you keep posting their crap, then you need to cut bait. These guys are garbage through and through. There’s not a movie review I’ve felt was justified and creative content that was creative and not boorish.

    Please. Stop posting their videos. Also, please stop posting Jimmy Fallon videos. He’s not half as funny as Kimmel.

    • Here’s a list of Cinefix’ crap content that you never ever should post again:

      -8 bit cinema
      -sueded movies
      -drinking games (although the Clueless episode is the only one I watched bc Stacey Dash is SMoking hot)

      Special steaming piles of videos that should never have been made:

      * Never Before Scene – Seriously. This is so unfunny and such a waste of somebody’s film editing time. Worst youtube videos ever…

      * Things You Didnt Know – basically a waste of time because it’s stuff we all know because we actually read SR articles.

      Lastly – a diamond in that steaming pile – the Conspiracy cinema. You watch, this guy who does these is going to go solo before long because he has way too much talent for those Wooly Willys

      • Not sure if Cinefix do them but “How It Should Have Ended” is a waste of talent too, trying to appeal to those who clearly don’t understand the movies they watch, complain about them and then cheer when some annoying hipster decides to make fun of the thing people didn’t understand with a painfully unfunny and pointless alternate ending scene.
