First Negative "Up" Review

Posted: May 28th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
First Negative "Up" ReviewSubmit Comment
Pixar films have not only been incredibly successful, but also some of the best reviewed. "Ratatouille" and "Wall-E" both received only 9 negative reviews out of 200, which is a 96% approval rating.

Pixar's new "Up" movie was 100% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with over 40 reviews, but as with all movies, eventually some critic will feel the need to be different or someone who simply find most mainstream flicks terrible.

The man that's about to ruin the perfect score is New York critic Armond White, who just finished writing his negative review for "Up." And this guy is no stranger to negative reviews, he previously trashed "The Wrestler," "Star Trek," "Milk," "Slumdog Millionaire," "The Dark Knight," "Iron Man," "There Will be Blood" and "Zodiac." But "Bedtime Stories" got a thumbs up from him. [via /Film]

Excerpt from review: "Up drops its emotional elements for chase mechanics and precious comedy. This way, Pixar disgraces and delimits the animated film as a mushy, silly pop form.

Armond White is f*ckin douchebag...he always rips David Fincher films (incl. Fight Club and Seven) calling them food for teenies who don't know anything about life or immature adults. And then he praises crap like Max Payne and Transporter 3 for their visual effects! f*ckin punk!

How in the f*cking world is this moron allowed to review or be taken seriously enough to ruin anything or give a f*cking opinion on anything? What a waste of space. His parents should be neutered then murdered.

I wouldn't trust a guy who loved Bedtime Stories over Milk, Star Trek, The Wrestler and Slumdog Millionaire.
JKline writes:

there's two sides to every story. He is entitled his opinion, and I am sure there are people out there who agree with him. For every 49 reviews that praise a film, there should be a review that points out the downfalls of a film. You can choose to agree or disagree or even to ignore!
seraphemz writes:

Jkline - you are a f*cking idiot. He should not give a negative review JUST because everyone else liked it. Obviously his review/opinion has no merit.
ghosttomost writes:
on May 28th, 2009 at 12:11:28 PM

I was almost willing to let this guy have his own opinion until i went to the page that dub031 and saw that this douchebag said that "twilight" was better than "let the right one in". Isn't there a way to take away reviewer licences?

lol you should see his I am legend movie review, not saying movie was great but his review was a will smith bashing, and nothing about the movie.

Wow Armond White IS A freaking idiot gives a good review to Transporter 3? what the? God Thats freaking annoying he bashes all kinds of awesome movies for no freaking reason he needs to shut up

and nobody blows hobos just because they wanna post an agreement or disagreement on this f*ckhead critic...he's entitled to his opinion yes....but bashing it for a REVIEW?...not ok in my book...these kinds of reviews should be for movies like the karate kid remake

Armond White is an attention seeking f*ckhead who always gives negative reviews to good movies.

TOY STORY 3!!!....oh and that guy can go to hell, no one cares about critics anyway!!
Blank x2 writes:

He ripped all of those movies listed, and actually liked Bedtime Stories. I'll bet that guy LOVES Epic Movie, Date Movie, Dance Flick, and all the other garbage that gets released. Wow.

This guy is a douche and not very credible
Kid_A writes:

I don't want to be prejudiced, but a man who criticizes "The Dark Knight", "Slumdog Millionaire" negatively doesn't sound to me as he criticizes correctly.
Strider23 writes:
on May 28th, 2009 at 6:20:50 PM

Yea, He likes all this stupid crap that comes out like dance filk which is unbeleivably retarded and hates stuff that is actually really good he can go to hell for all i care
JKline writes:
on May 28th, 2009 at 8:39:32 PM

@seraphemz I am not giving his review credibility. Merely stating that when a lot of critics lump together in their reviews, it can be insightful to see why someone doesn't like it. I hardly agree with critics anyways, opting to create my own opinion.
seraphemz writes:
on May 29th, 2009 at 12:50:32 AM

@jkline - My bad on lashing out. But really, he doesnt make any sense. Look at his track record. Seeing why someone doesnt like something would make sense if there IS something not to like. Giving UP a bad review and TRANSPORTER 3 a good one makes no sense.
PirateDave128 writes:
on May 29th, 2009 at 6:12:51 AM

Well clearly this guy is an awful critic, to trash such masterpeices as The Wrestler and Dark Knight, to then turn round and say Bedtime Stories is good shows his oppinon and taste in films is garbage.
