There are some things about the Internet that really piss me off. Here is a list of them.
1. Videos being blocked/deleted/having their audio muted or replaced just because it contains copyrighted material. It especially gets grating with videos of television shows and movies that never got released on DVD, iTunes, or Hulu. And apparently, video game soundtracks also count as copyright, since I was for a while unable to listen to the renditions of Vampire Killer used in the original NES Castlevania and Rondo of Blood.
At least those nosy copyright meddlers leave uploaders alone if they give credit to the owners of the copyright material they are using. I am also happy that they invented ProxTube to get around videos that are blocked to other countries. Unfortunately, I don't think there is anything we can do about videos that were deleted or muted/had the audio replaced.
2. People who type sarcasm and say I am the R-word just because I didn't know they were using sarcasm. I know there are times where sarcasm is obvious, but the tone of voice when a person speaks is the usual clue. There are some people, even sane, intelligent, and rational ones, that actually like Justin Bieber and Twilight as well as anything or anyone else nigh-universally agreed to be terrible. Also, typed words do not have a tone of voice, so it should be obvious to you that typed sarcasm is not always obvious.
I myself loathe Twilight and Bieber like everyone else, but I do have my share of guilty pleasures.
3. People who refuse to address their opinions in a nice manner. We all have a right to our opinions. What matters is how we say them. There is a difference between saying that you don't like a bad work of fiction and saying that the bad work of fiction sucks ass.
Just because a work of fiction is bad doesn't mean nobody likes it, and just because a work of fiction is good doesn't mean everyone likes it. Good movies or such can have controversial subject matter or even a few flaws that some people see as undermining the good qualities. The movie may even be about something they don't really care for.
Bad flicks can have a good number of reasons why people like it. It could be that the film has a few redeeming qualities. Maybe the acting and special effects were crap, but it had a wonderful soundtrack, for example. There are also some people who like watching bad movies because the suckiness is hilarious and it is worth watching just to see how badly they screwed everything up. There are even the few people who like the bad movie because in their own opinion, the film is not bad at all.
I have good taste, but there are a few bad things about the franchises that I like as well as the good stuff. I am an Inspector Gadget fan. Like most Gadget fans, I agree that the original 80's cartoon was the best incarnation of the Inspector. I also happen to be very fond of Gadget Boy, Gadget and the Gadgetinis, the animated direct-to-video movies, and the live-action Disney films. I was even more forgiving of the second season of the original cartoon that gave us that dweeb of an idiot Corporal Capeman.
In addition, I happen to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan who liked the third movie, the Next Mutation show, and even the musicals with the shoddy costumes at some extent.
The only incarnation of Ninja Turtles that I don't like is the Operation Blue Line video. The 1987 cartoon theme tune and the same actors from that show reprising their roles as the Turtles did not excuse the lame villain Gridlock and the cheesy costumes. They were even more unrealistic than the costumes used in the third movie, The Next Mutation, the Getting Out of Their Shells and Going Down in Your Town musicals, and the Turtle Tunes and We Wish You a Turtle Christmas videos. At least those costumes were able to speak and express emotion. The Blue Line Turtles looked like amusement park mascots!
4. People who whine and complain about every controversial change. Just because a franchise makes one little mistake, or even a tremendous mistake, doesn't mean that the franchise is "ruined forever".
Even the most well-respected and ever-popular franchises will have a few incarnations that all or most of the fandom prefer to forget. Lots of fans despise Michael Bay's Transformers movies. I have seen the first two, and while I admit they could have used some improvement, I do not regret seeing them.
So what if Megan Fox is going to play April O'Neil? So what if Ben Affleck is going to play Batman in the upcoming Superman and Batman crossover film? Those actors aren't really my top choices for those roles, either, but nobody is perfect, and sometimes bad choices can turn out to be good ones in hindsight.
Even if their performances do ruin the movies, it is not like they will be playing those roles forever! Batman had to have actors changed TWICE in the Burton/Schumacher series, and Christian Bale's portrayal in the Nolan series has had mixed reception at best. April O'Niel also had an inconsistency in actresses, so it is possible that if the Superman and Batman crossover and Ninja Turtles movie reboot manage to get sequels, they will have new actors play April and Batman. Anything is possible, within reason, in the film industry.
That is all I have to say for now.
