Avengers Comment Trolls -- ASSEMBLE!!!

Mike Sterling at Progressive Ruin clued me in on the the reactions to this review by critic Amy Nicholson of  the "Avengers" movie.

Ms. Nicholson gave the film a decent but not glowing review. While I have not seen the film yet, I could see she made a valid point about the settings of the climactic battles in most of the Marvel movies: Too many of them are centered in New York in particular and Earth in general. That's fine, and even necessary, in the case of an earthbound street-level hero like Spidey or Daredevil. But as for Avengers or the FF, those books have served as travel guides to all the different corners of the Marvel Universe. Look at all the realms explored: Latveria, the Negative Zone, the Great Refuge, the Microverse. The list is endless. Marvel should show us some of those realms onscreen in the future.

So she gave the film 3 out of 5, which essentially translates into "good, but not great". No big deal.

But that wasn't good enough for the comment trolls on the site. You see, in their eyes, she committed two unpardonable sins in addition to not giving the movie a perfect review:

1. Initially calling Nick Fury "Nick Frost" in the review. Once.

2. Speaking Out While Female (SOWF).

And so they unleashed their full, mean-spirited, dickheaded wrath upon her in the comments section.

“She asked her boyfriend what score she should give. Just stick to rom-coms, bitch.”

“Hope your site got the hits it so desperately craves, you sad pathetic excuse for a human being.”

“You actually wanted this movie to suck, didn’t you? I’ve seen your other reviews, and your bias opinions on pretty much everything. You spelled names wrong, you got names wrong, You somehow managed to think that explosions and aliens means Transformers. You have no business being a critic if you are going to act like this.”

“Bitch what the fuck is wrong with you, I knew there would be bad reviews from some people but not from spiteful assholes who bash shit for attention.”

 “She didn’t bash it for attention, it’s starting to become clear she’s a DC fangirl, so she actually had an agenda.”

God, I HATE comments sections!

Guys, she didn't burn down your goddamn house or kill your mother. She just gave a lukewarm review of a movie. Idiots like this give comic fandom a horrible name.

Oh, but here's my personal favorite:

“This pathetic ***** will do anything to get some traffic for her shit little blog. Hope it paid off you stinking ****. Perhaps next time the guy who’s **** you sucked to get the job will send someone who’s actually capable of remembering a character’s name for longer than two minutes.” 


Accusing a female professional of fellating her boss in order to get her job?

You know...there are times when I REALLY hate the internet.

Do these...people act like this at their schools or their jobs or interacting with their friends and families? I certainly hope not. But man, once you get them in front of a keyboard, and hand them some anonymity, it is as though every single hateful, nasty vicious impulse that they have ever had, comes bursting forth.

It's sad, it is pathetic, and it is loathsome.

I admit I myself get snarkier and use more 4-letter words under my blogger name than in my "civilian identity". But even I don't throw every shred of decency, tact, and restraint out the window at the first sign of anonymity like these fools do.
