Agreed. Brian Rhodes was clearly characterizing the hype around the Black Panther film in a humorous manner. Working too hard to miss the point as you've done here is supposed to be something this forum tries to curtail.

You took it one way, I another.  That's not "missing the point" Brian. 

Bill, I am obviously someone that sets you off in some way as most of your replies to me are about how I choose to frame my opinion.  Easy enough to skip past me instead of finding every opportunity to correct me or tell me how you think I should respond.

 QUOTE:
Brandon, I wonder if my first reaction strikes any chord with you though it's not exactly the same.

Now that you mention it, I did have a very similar reaction to a different type of 'rock star', Todd McFarlane.

I remember enjoying McFarlene's art quite a bit in his earlier days, particularly Spider-Man. But following the rise of Image, when LCS's and publication rags like Wizard Magazine started presenting him as though he was the greatest artist that ever lived (as well as some kind of messiah for creators right's), my enthusiasm for his work dwindled and eventually petered out altogether. 

I can still appreciate his artistic abilities, but I felt the same type of disenchantment that I described in my first post. It didn't even occur to me until now how similar the reaction was.

Matt, you often come across as rude and pedantic, as you
did in reply to Brian, yes i could skip it, but i chose
to point it out. You don`t know what`s happening in the
personal lives of those you reply to in that manner and
maybe they visit here for a little relief, a little
civility wouldn`t hurt.I`m sorry if that is hard for you
to hear.

I'm not going to argue with you, Bill.  Of course I don't know how anyone feels at the moment they choose to post on the board.  No one does. Do you know what happened with me over the holidays this year? No.  Not at all and I don't expect you to because I haven't made it public. But are you honestly saying that's how I should choose to frame how I reply? Expect something bad to have happened to anyone replying and not question a post I think needs to be addressed? That would curtail any discussion or debate, no?  So how am I any different?  

Continue to point it out if you choose.  Fine.  And I'll continue to ignore it. As long as it makes you feel good, I guess that's all that matters.

I was being facetious with the BEST FILM EVER MADE EVER EVER comment...but also kinda felt it was in line in a thread about hype. 

Thanks to Hague and Bill for recognizing it. Matt, I really like some of what you have to say. Not sure why this got stuck in your craw, but it wasn't meant as a serious evaluation or quote of anything anybody said.
