Because in the grand scheme of things, who gives a shit?

In the grand scheme of things, people create art to a leave a legacy/memory through their works. When you condemn something to not be art you are saying it isn't worthy of being preserved as an form of human expression to be valued through time. If I was a game developer I think I'd be insulted by that line of thought.

I wouldn't take what Yoda says too seriously. Though, that comment did sound very ignorant.

While I agree that in an actual conversation that wouldn't be a good comment to make.  However, if (and I'm assuming) he meant that if we're here to talk and respect (than to piss on) the memory of Roger Ebert, then I guess in the grand sceme of things, it doesn't matter.

Of course....Maybe it's the art-bias in me; I consider just about everything art, and I don't like when people discount anything from potentially being art (even shitty fucking dumb installation art that tries to transcend what art and our boundaries for reality art or whatever the shit.... I hate it, but fine, I'll call it art...to some people >=( ... )

Did he share an opinion about installation art?
relevant
I guess in a way, calling mediums themselves art is too broad and everything should be considered art case by case.

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

Hahaha that's one of my favorite movies
I'm pretty sure I've taken on the phrase "emotionally erect" into my personal vocab and I've said it a few times here.

The reveal of the actual painting at the end is what really sells it to me.  So awesome.

I was genuinely sad to hear this news... they used to print his reviews in The Post-Standard (central new york newspaper) and I would read them every week... I didn't always agree with him but his opinion was always worth hearing out...

Anyway do you guys have any particular film critics you read?
I dig theflickfilosopher.com but she can go a bit overboard with her feminist overreactions at times (i.e. she slammed I Love You, Man for promoting negative stereotypes of how men should behave.. which I didn't take away from that movie at all..) but I generally enjoy her reviews..

I only read and trust GrimReality's reviews.

So, I don't see many movies.
