Quotes: Let's See You Do Better
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better."
— Attributed to Theodore Roosevelt

"It's easy to attack and destroy an act of creation. It's a lot more difficult to perform one. "
Chuck Palahniuk

"Why Bill Corbett (who wrote this movie)!? Did you want to make your own movie to riff on? ...Many of the scripted jokes are your most predictable set ups for lame punchlines. For example, the gruff security officer somehow sees A Chorus Line which makes him gay. Not just gay, but Village People gay with a limp wrist and stereotype voice. You see, because he was so macho you wouldn’t expect that he…*sigh* Where’s the booze?"
Miles Antwiler on Meet Dave

"I can't imagine why anybody would choose to watch this filth beyond a fascination with revulsion. Is there supposed to be something funny/scary/relevant about a man who orgasms his way into oblivion? I felt nothing for Carys' plight because I got to know her for about 30 seconds before she was taken over and in that time she comes across as a ridiculous drama queen who can't hold her booze. Why should I care about this person? In the middle of an episode about a murderous sex alien the Torchwood team stop for a get to know you Chinese takeaway. What the hell? How random is that? It completely disrupts any flow that the investigation might have had and proves utterly ineffectual at revealing anything about the staff. You would think that [Chris] Chibnall had never written a script before in his life. I bet those criticisms about the JNT era on Points of View when he was a spotty Herbert haunted him after this was broadcast. People in glass houses..."
Doc Oho on Torchwood, "Day One"

"Pier Solar was not only made for an old 16-bit console, it was also made to give the impression of a game that would have been made in the 16-bit days. Thus the premise feels heavily conventional — three children in a generic fantasy world explore a forbidden cave near their village, where they happen upon the remains of an ancient civilisation a warning. Following the trail, they find themselves dragged into events that far exceed their former mundane world view...Even back in the 16-bit era, it probably would have been considered a B-tier RPG, closer to the likes of Lufia & The Fortress of Doom or the first Breath of Fire rather than Final Fantasy VI or Phantasy Star IV, except for its really pretty presentation. On the Genesis it couldn't hope to do the inflated aftermarket cartridge prices any justice, and even at the original pricing it would have been a tough recommendation."
Sam Derboo on Pier Solar and the Great Architects
