What the shit is this? Why is this on the get psyched mix?
Because I gotta throw you a curve-ball every now and again, or you get bored, and the mix doesn't have its intended effect.
No, I want to get rev'd up, and this song's not doing it.
Oh, really? I defy you to crush this chorus and not get psyched.
Not gonna happen.
Don't ya think?

I never know what to think of viewer reviews of a film. It SHOULD be that the viewers, the actual audience, are the REAL people, the average person on the street who's opinion SHOULD coincide much more closely to my own than some faceless Professional Critic. But on IMDb that doesn't seem to be the case. I never believe the hype, whether it's a movie or a CD or some book like 50 shades of gray. I wait until the hoopla dies down and then I go see for myself - or not. In the same way I usually skip to the middle of the pile of user reviews. That's where the truth is. That's where the REAL people are. But who the heck are these other people? Are they paid by the studio to post rave reviews with their FUNNIEST MOVIE OF THE YEAR and all that? Maybe it has something to do with taste. I guess, for example, if you had only tasted mud pies all your life you might develop an acquired taste for mud pies. In that case you'd be the expert - what do I know about mud pies? Also, in all fairness, comedy IS subjective. What's funny to you might strike me as stupid. For example, if you think ANYTHING from Will Ferrell is funny, well...then, I guess we won't have a lot in common, will we? I guess the only thing to do is to keep skipping the hype, to wait out the storm and the crowds, to listen to ALL the reviews and make an informed decision as to whether or not a movie is for me. As for you, if you think Johnny Depp will make a convincing Tonto, if you think Will Ferrell IS actually funny, if you think Nicolas Cage is actually an actor and is not just pretending to be, then go for it. I think I'll skip this one.
