Or perhaps you're a bit sensitive.
Although I suppose my post was in response to yours, my overriding thought is that most of the threads here on films like this are littered with the "clever clan" that seem anxious to flex their intellectual (and historical) depth by tearing down these kinds of films. Kinda pointless to me.
Now that doesn't mean I give every one of them (films) a blank check to go off the deep end for 2 hours, but I feel a considerable amount of leeway is inherently
required to take these films in/enjoy and if people haven't figured that out by now, I would liken them at least a bit masochistic to continue to bombard their sensibilities with what has become a bona fide way of life for modern film...especially Hollywood blockbusters.
I'm sorry if my retort was a bit over the top- it probably was. I think I just read a few posts similar to yours and my tea got a bit over boiled.
EDIT: whaddya know, ANOTHER post essentially alluding that the millions of people who enjoyed the film are artistically opaque. Go figure. If you actually paid to see (which, barring sneaking into the theater, you did) what has to be the greatest known quantity in the industry after 10 yrs, and (unsurprisingly) walked away disappointed, the egg's on your face, not ours.
