->''"Itís almost as if, via some complex form of recurved self-awareness, people are so aware of how easy, how bloody easy, it is to put an interesting and novel new spin on [[ZombieApocalypse zombies]], that they then feel disinclined to bother...Of course, the reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally interesting and novel thing to do with zombies would be to JUST LEAVE THEM THE FUCK ALONE. But somehow we, as a culture, seem to have come to the collective conclusion that that would be cheating."''

->''"The show was never afraid ->''"My theory on the backlash to go cartoonishly broad this film has less to do with its {{nerd}}s, with their flailing arms the quality of what's on the screen and nasally voices, colourful too-short pants held up with suspenders, and black-rimmed glasses taped at the bridge what it represents; a pre-postmodern America of the nose, as they scuttled off to chess club...Like a gritty Creator/ChristopherNolan reboot of a whole genus, pulps and the 21st century Poindexters frontier, an America of ''[[Series/TheBigBangTheory Big Bang Theory]]'' ''[[IWantMyJetpack possibility]]'' that's lost to us now. ''John Carter, Warlord of Mars'' is definitely not a postmodern superhero, and ''{{Series/Community}}'' are far closer can't be revised to postmodernity the twitching robo-savant of ''Film/RainMan'' than the spluttering geeks of old, taking their cue from Creator/MichaelCera rather than ''Series/MrBean''.way Guy Ritchie's ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' was."''

->''"It does not look remarkable different from ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Next Generation]]'', in my opinion. I think it is edited in the same way, the way itís staged, the direction that theyíre allowed to do, how they tell a story, the lighting scheme Ė a lot of it is very, very redolent of ''Next Generation''Ö It has not moved on with television. Itís still stuck in a very old groove."''

->''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' was so insanely, teeth-grindingly terrible it nearly killed the entire ''Star Trek'' franchise (and {{space opera}}, arguably, as well) forever. Even Jeri Ryan in a lycra suit couldn't redeem this atrocity, which took every annoying tic and quirk and cringe-inducing faux pas of every ''Star Trek'' episode ever and built a series around it."''

->''"So... one of Bondís big clues is a [[GoingByTheMatchbook matchbook]]? What is this, a Literature/MikeHammer movie? I think that was already a hoary cliché before [[Film/{{Thunderball}} the first time]] Connery made this movie. This also means the main villain actually [[SigilSpam prints up matchbooks with his logo on them]], and hands them out to his evil underlings."''
-->--'''''Website/TheAgonyBooth''''' on ''Film/NeverSayNeverAgain''



->''"Maybe I'm too cynical these days, but I found myself constantly questioning the film. Why does there always have to be a '[[TheChosenOne chosen one]]'? Why is there always some [[DeusExMachina insanely powerful trinket]] that can do pretty much anything the wearer wants? Why are fantasy lands always ruled by [[TheKingdom a single person?]] And why is that person always either [[EvilOverlord a tyrant]]ówith an army of dark-colored creatures that can't talkóor [[TheGoodKing completely benevolent]], causing rainbows and unicorns to appear by his or her mere presence?"''
