per amica silentia lunae

or, across the ferny brae with the evil voodoo celt

Review the work, don't review the audience

I haven't seen the movie, but this still resonates with me. I see plenty of examples of the "I hated it = it sucks = anyone who liked it sucks" chain of reasoning out there... and I've occasionally been (unintentionally, I hope) lumped into the latter category by friends.

Of course, I'm sure I've been guilty of the same behavior myself, but I try to watch out for it. It's another pitfall on the path of compassion, another way to "other" people who have characteristics you don't like...
