    Liberals calling him all sorts of names because he said he doesnt want to review the movie. How tolerant of them. Heres his video btw. Its very eloquent and well said but I dont think people bashing it watched it all. He wins in the end because hes getting the publicity.

    So he saw the movie and decided not to review it?

    Are they already showing the movie to critics?

    No, he got a lot of questions about the movie so he made a video for his fans explaining he won't go see it. The trailer didn't appeal to him, so he thinks it's just piggybacking on the name of a franchise he loves.

    He said he won't go see it in theaters and give them his money, which is fair enough. I can understand that. I'm sure he'll, like most people, myself included, will watch it in some form eventually (download, DVD, etc.......) the curiosity will be too much.

    The media seems to have a big problem with adults who enjoy things that they see are for "children." Doesnt matter if the person is successful, married, has kids, etc, they will still be seen as 'whiny man babies." I guess maybe instead they should be reading great literature, eating organic food, going to the theatere, and organizing protests like the liberal elite who criticize them.

    Doesnt need it. Hes got an attractive wife but the media didnt even bother to research that. It wouldnt fit their narrative.

    I don't like how he pronounces "review" as RE-view.

    He's right, it would've been better if they copied Star Wars and had the old guys pass the torch.
