There are two types of commenters in this world: Those who agree with you, and those who are idiots. Oh, also spammers. And people who write in Ukrainian and post on your site, but we mark them as spam anyway. Or, another way to look at it: Those who write short comments, and those write long, rambling, incoherent essays.
And then there are those few commenters that write something that’s longer than one sentence but less than five pages, uses correct punctuation, and actually gets his point across succinctly. So congrats to Rob for his thoughtful musings on Joaquin Phoenix in I’m Still Here. You’re our commenter of the Week!
Well said. Truth is I never saw or heard about any of this until I saw a re-run of the Letterman interview, poked around the Internet a bit to figure out whether it was a hoax, and came across this review. Twenty minutes I canâ€™t get back, granted, but thanks to you I was spared from wasting any more time on it. Shitstorm is rightâ€¦ personally, before tonight I thought the guy was talented enough to make me want to see a movie BECAUSE he was in it. Not anymoreâ€¦ harder to get excited about spending money to go see a guy that canâ€™t distinguish parody from simple self-obsession. I would take your point a step further thoughâ€¦ the ONLY story here is whether this guy chooses to climb out of the hole he dug for himself, or whether he opts to keep digging.
