I could give shit about Harry Knowles or any other critic for that matter but AICN's talkbacks can be pretty funny.

Harry Knowles isn't any more a "shill" than anyone else in the business. He's simply reached a point of recognition where if he gives a positive review people assume he's accused of shilling, while his negative reviews get completely ignored. Same as any other "internet reviewer."

I don't listen to critics to begin with anyway. I go to a movie that looks interesting to me and then I decide if I like it or not. I'm always amazed at the number of people who don't go to a movie- just because a critic panned it. Of course, I never understood how art teachers could grade art! Everyone's interpretation is different. So he could have said that it sucked ass- I still would go to the movie.

I don't trust Harry Knowles. I'd rather get my reviews from the Jomfru bros. at diefordethklok.com

I don't listen to any reviewers. They aren't me, they don't know my tastes, they don't share the same tastes/likes/dislikes as I do, so how can they give an accurate read on if I'd like a movie or not?
So I tend to ignore 'em all.
Ang Lee's Hulk was horrible. There's no way around how bad it was. Hulk-Dogs?? The side by side "comic book" like panel shots really drove me over the edge. Haven't seen the Ed Norton Hulk yet, have no desire to see it.
I've seen Tom Jane's Punisher a couple of times. It's not a bad movie at all. Fun and entertaining, mindless, nice way to kill a couple of hours, lol.
My problem with the Star Wars prequels is that they tried to do too much in the 3 movies. They knew the end point and tried to put way too much into the movies. It was like the path to get to the start of ANH wasn't thought out fully ahead of time, so by the time they got to the end of TPM, there was just too much ground to cover and had to infill as best they could with things that only half-made sense.
For example, in Clones, Obi-Wan tracks the bounty hunter that is working for the Separtists to Kamino and discovers that the same bounty hunter is the template for a Clone Army that some Jedi (who's never heard from, seen or investigated) contracted the Kamino's to create for the Republic. No one in the Republic has heard of these or knows about it but they just take it at face value that it's okay to use this army and no one stops to think about why the same bounty hunter is working for the Separtists (and shows up on their side at the battle of Geneosis) and being used as the clone template?

I think both Hulk movies were flawed in their own ways. Strangely enough, they both made about the same money and then returned to obscurity. Had Bruce's dad and his dogs not been included, I'd certainly give the nod to the first Hulk. It had more depth. The second came off as a knockoff copy to me.
Hey, I'm all for good reviews, especially if this guy was smart enough to see what a disappointment TF2 was. Every clip and review of ROC I've seen so far makes me more pumped to go see it.
From all I've seen, ROC is an over-the-top comic book adaptation that doesn't take itself too seriously. That's just what I'm hoping for. I'm glad this guy came out and said he likes it, even when it isn't fashionable to do so on the net these days.

Not a bad review. I take most critics with a grain of salt, and its not different, here.
But, I did like the fact he mentioned that the low-brow humor from ROTF is not in this film.
