No one is even aware of that.
I was on Team Hug. Dwarves totally hug.
See his review of Pacific Rim, which was a kind-of stupid movie for 13 year-olds:
Vs his review of Prometheus, an uneven movie with great parts and some bad writing:
One of these movies was twice as good as the other one. But because Erik Henrickson can't distinguish weight of expectations vs objective quality of a movie, his opinion is stuuuuuupid.
Prometheus had big problems as a film, but parts of it were excellent and overall I would argue it was pretty good. I like to compare it to Stargate in that regard. Pulpy, but ultimately pretty good.
Pacific Rim was cartoonish and silly, but okay if you like giant cartoon monsters fighting giant cartoon robots. Incidentally, both movies had Idris Elba, so that's cool. But even if you don't buy my argument that Prometheus was twice as good as Pacific Rim, you have to agree they are at least comparable quality wise. No way is Pacific Rim waaaay better than Prometheus, or the first Hobbit movie for that matter.
What Eric Henrickson means when he says Prometheus was terrible is that is wasn't nearly as good as Blade Runner or Aliens. And what he means when he says the Hobbit sucks is that it wasn't as good as LOTR. Okay, great! I think we can all agree on that. But that doesn't mean those movies somehow becomes objectively way worse than an objective piece of crud like Pacific Rim.
Erik Henrickson's reviews of genre movies = not credible. And I'm sick of his crappy opinions polluting an otherwise quality Mercury film review section. I don't want to read film reviews written by cynical dorks who think their opinions are important when they really are just cynical crap.
I don't look forward to reading Erik's review, though. No offense, Erik! I think the "ragging on Radagast" and the "it's too long" angles are a bit bland.
What if Alfonso Cuarón had resurrected Lily Potter, and then made her a teacher at Hogwarts? Please tell me if you need me to explain that analogy like you're five.
