Boyhood! It took 12 years to make!

Yes, RLM’s most vocal fans are among the most annoying people on the internet (something they acknowledge quite often), but I’ve never gotten the notion that they feel any kind of contempt for people who don’t share their opinions or people who like crowd-pleasing blockbusters. They look pretty favorably on the Marvel movies and only occasionally will review slightly more artsy films. And they really only dump on universally derided movies like Adam Sandler’s recent output.

Their videos are also consistently pretty funny, so I don’t see what the problem is. I’ve never once heard them claim that one is simple-minded by mere virtue of disagreeing with their assessment of a movie. But I guess there are just some people who consider it their life’s work to try and paint everyone they find slightly annoying as pretentious, hypocritical pricks.
