I've heard of him and know that he is an idiot but never read any of his reviews before this one.

I'm a little bummed the metacritic score is down to a 71 currently thanks to the recent crop of mixed to negative reviews from top critics. They haven't added the AV Club or Michael Phillips reviews yet though, so that should help it go up a bit.

Armond guaranteed to think Battleship is a testament of film making with Peter Berg in comparison to Steven Spielberg making Raiders of the Lost Ark.


It's funny...but still annoying and ridiculously dumb.

I don't think that he believes what he writes.

And he's still wrong. Natasha had a small role in the movie...much more than a simple cameo. Trololololollin'.

He probably doesn't even know the difference between cameo and small role.

Hes definitely a Top Critic, so add another Fresh review to the tally.

Warning: there be SPOILERS.

Some critics are getting exceedingly arrogant.

Very nice -- Morris just won the Pulitzer for his film criticism. He's one of the best out there. Take that, Armond .

I hope he uses that "superhero movies don't get much better than this" line in his print review. Would look great on a poster or ad. Not that they need much help in that regard.

The only heavy hitters yet to weigh in at this point of the NY Times and Ebert, right? I'm gonna say one of them goes negative, I'm just not sure which yet.

I will be utterly shocked if AO Scott gives a positive review. Expect something along the lines of the Salon review, only with slightly less obvious contempt.

Didn't someone in this forum reported that Ebert likes this movie and is giving it a B+? Since LA Times loves TA, I hope their East Coast brethren would like it as well.

There's probably a good 18-20 of the 'top critics' left to weigh in. Not counting Ebert and A.O. Scott....
Washington Post
Wall Street Journal
USA Today
Christian Science Monitor
Detroit News
Roger Moore
Amy Biancolli
David Denby of the New Yorker
and the Philadelphia Inquirer among others.

AO Scott liked Captain America. He didn't like Thor. Which of course seems to be the trend for critics. He could go either way on Avengers. I expect a barely positive review.

I expect the guy from the Wall Street Journal to hate this movie. Other than that, I don't think there are any obvious Top Critics that are guaranteed to hate Avengers.
