Critic Review - Decent Films Guide

Deeply troubling and potentially gravely harmful artifact of the culture of death.

How is this a serious review or critic?

The website bases its main film ratings on how well the films conform to right-wing Christian beliefs (seriously).

Here he whines because he views the film as "pro-euthanasia" which he only barely determined wasn't "propaganda". So what does he give it as his recommendation? An F. He also rates it with a -4/4 "morality/spiritual" rating and determines the appropriate age range for the film is "no one." Really, he wrote that, "no one."

But what's that mixed in with those stupid ass ratings? Is that a 3/4 for entertainment and/or artistic value?

Oh, I see. So the movie was entertaining and/or artistic but DON'T SEE IT because this guy believes people should be kept alive against their will.

And what's that linked at the bottom of the page? A Brokeback Mountain review? Do I even need to look to know what he whines about? Might as well...

Same stuff only he labels this one "post-human" and claims it's an indictment of heterosexuality and masculinity. So that 3.5/4 film (his rating) gets the big old "F" recommendation with a -4 morality rating.

Seriously, if this guy isn't going to actually rate the films on their merits but rather how well they align with his dogma then he shouldn't have his reviews counted on this site.
