District 9 represents the sloppiest and dopiest pop cinema -- the kind that comes from a second-rate film culture.

This movie might very well come from a second rate film culture, but it's being reviewed here by a fourth-rate film critic.

I saw Almond White renting out porn at Blockbuster while wearing his favourite Micheal Bay collector's edition Transformer pyjamas.

Wow just wow Never fails
Aug 13 - 07:29 AM
Armond, you are such a moron.
Aug 13 - 07:36 AM
Ahhhh Yes!!! Mr A.W. never fails me. I love it! Keep up the good job.

Just to further damage his credibility...In his review of Transformers 2, he stated this about Torque. Yes, that's right, Torque:"...Joseph Kahn%u2019s near-miraculous Torque (none of Bay%u2019s mechanical anthropomorphism matches the wit of how Torque%u2019s human characters live through their vehicles)"Ah yes, the genius character study that is Torque.

I literally burst out laughing as soon as I saw this review. Check out the comment section of the first review of this movie. I called this **** 2 weeks back. I must be a f'ing prophet.

Rhodric, anybody could have predicted this. He always has to be the critic to make sure that no movie since Toy Story 2 will ever get 100%.

I'm absolutely convinced he's a self actualized, advertising/comedic genius. How many thousands of hits does NY press get because of his reviews? Seriously, this cat can't review ANYTHING without getting peoples attention AND driving them into a frenzied state of rage. It's quite a funny site if you step back and look at it from a performance art standpoint.My hats off to you, sir.

Did he just call Peter Jackson "Intellectually Juvenile"??? Can somebody please pull the plug on this guy in RT? Understand that this is one of the ardent followers of RT's first post!
after reading your reviews it seems if there isn't a black lead the movie is crap. good job there brother.

You represent the sloppiest and dopiest pop cinema criticism imaginable -- the kind that comes from a huge ego to get himself noticed on Rotten tomatoes. You snotty sheet bald head knows nothing about second-rate film culture or 1st rate. It's wrong to hate & you're not worthy of it anyway.
You smell bad mister!

Should be obious by now to the RT management, that the rage generated by this review is not because people are angry that a movie they liked recieved a rotten review, but because a movie website they like has a rotten critic.
Usualy, out in the real world, if someone is bad at their job they get fired prety quick - freedom of speech/opinion or not.
Obiously Armond White has done something right to be granted his position and status, but it is most definetly not movie reviewing, which is what this website is all about in the end.
I guess due to the politics involved Mr.White will be part of the RT community for a long time which is a shame for he oviously does not share the site fans passion for movies.
Also, people seem to forget that racism is not a one-way issue; while posters bringing offensive racist remarks here shuold be suspended/banned, defending a critic that bring racist remarks in his reviews by the RT management seems a bit contradictory to me.

Someone needs to come up with an alter ego for Armond because he is the villan of the rottentomatoes universe. He is a thorn in the side of any good movie much as the Joker is thorn in the side to Batman. I shall call him Dr. Unfavorable. He gives favorable reviews to the bad and unfavorbale to the good people in society. He cant be bought, bullied, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn...
Aug 13 - 08:43 AM
and he's got a facebook page dedicated to him too!

I don't think you'll ever read this, but, Mr. White, YOU ARE MADE OF PURE, UNFILTERED HATRED.

"Ledger%u2019s already-overrated performance consists of a Ratso Rizzo voice and lots of lip-licking. But how great of an actor was Ledger to accept this trite material in the first place?"
Armond on Heath Ledger, who if you forgot won an Oscar for that performance.
You are like that kid everyone delt with in high school that refused to like things because everyone else liked it. You just have to be different.

I've decided that if Armond White doesn't like a film, it MUST be worth seeing. :)
Aug 13 - 09:21 AM
Why does this, biased and clueless(at best), or plain racist and tasteless(at worst), guy still have a job? I will just have to flip his reviews inside out and then go from there. Armond, you sir are a lost cause. I mean you must have a small shred of intelligence,I guess, since you seem to enjoy Luc Besson's work...but then you bash Jackson and defend Bay in the same article. WTF? Message for RT:Drop this guy, he is bringing down the whole site.
Aug 13 - 09:28 AM
Armond White I HATE YOU!!!!! if I saw you in person I would say it to your face youmother%#%^
Aug 13 - 09:34 AM
I'm going to guess Armond isn't a huge science fiction fan...But seriously, he must be rollin' in teh dough from the site traffic he gets. Keep it up Armond, you is be teh bezt insperdation to interwebz trol1z everyware!
