Perhaps the issue is how what you say reflects who you are or at least who you seem to be.
I've already admitted some of my flaws. Now could you please address the question? It's said that saying things different than what many people think is "raining on their parade." I just don't see how anyone's parade can be affected by an unknown person on the internet.
For better or worse the internet is just another form of social interaction. People with whom we engage here are not known. In some respects we know them better than if we knew them face to face. So what people say here is mo different than what people say face to face. And any interaction affects those interacting.
So, again, please answer the question. If a person on the internet, or in person (even a friend), strongly disagrees with your love of a particular movie, does it affect your opinion of the movie. Is you parade rained on?
Much like wine critics, I tend to listen to those who are aligned with my viewing palate. I would watch Stepbrothers 10/10 times over Citizen Kane, so clearly our viewing palates are not aligned. Knowing we have different tastes (which is ok), it doesn't bother me if you don't like the same films I like.
I think what some people may be referring t, however, is Why go out of your way to sh*t on a movie that someone else clearly likes?
Also, I can't wait for the new Star Wars movie to come out, and will make every effort to be there opening day with my kids .
