This was a terrible movie, making fun of punks if you ask me if you want to watch an actually real life punk movie watch the movie the Decline of Western Civilization part 1 and 3 skip number 2 its only the metal years.

if you think it has no worthwhile message, then you either are too ****ing stupid to see the message (which is likely), or you have no real identity to link to this message. maybe if you weren't too stupid to see the message, you'd understand why it was so bitter and then it would be less boring to you.
lets just chop it up to your extreme stupidity.

That's all you have to say about it? That it was bitter boring and messy? With no points to back it up? Well I disagree with you as much as is possible, I thought SLC Punk was one of the best indie films I've seen. Being from the Salt Lake area and being into punk I found it reassuring and related to many of the situations. And the message is what you take out of it, just because it doesn't paint itself red and blue and dance nude in front of you doesn't mean it isn't there, it means you weren't looking.
Try to be more constructive with your feedback as well, one sentence isn't acceptable for a "professional" critic,have your points in order.

I always wondered why people would bad mouth the critics...well when a movie moves you in many different ways and teaches you a lot about yourself, you get pissed off when someone bad mouths it and calls it worthless

lol look at where this newspaper is from. Utah. The state this took place. A bunch of old people(most likely the type they badmouthed in the movie) judging the movie. Of course they are going to give it a bad review.
