A Pointless Entertainment Conundrum

I am (vaguely) interested in this movie.

And then I discovered that this “film critic” gave it a “rave review” and his “soundbite” is even featured in the trailer I saw.

I hate this man (see evidence of this). What to do, what to do?

Quite the totally pointless conundrum…

Also, it’s good to know I’m not the only one that hates him. The internet is filled with apparent non-sheep with actual functioning brains that dislike him at least as much as I do. Especially this guy (who I couldn’t agree with more). Also these people don’t like him (check out the comments there for extra and warranted hate), or these, or these (again, the comments tell the real story)…I’ll stop linking now, I think you get the picture…

    hahaha. i like ben lyons because he’s hot. i like his eyes. i don’t like his taste, though. i think is opinion is just a waste of time.

    i’m new here so i might have to delve deeper into your blog. but i’m curious: what were you a semi-finalist of back in 1979?

    i think the material in your blog fits my preference. hope it’s OK if i added you into my blogroll.

    c ya!

    Lead Character: I’ll try not to hold your like of Ben Lyons for his looks against you. 😉 It kind of makes me hate him even more. The idea of replacing old/unattractive but intelligent/well-read/and qualified with “young and attractive” just makes my skin crawl.

    Thanks for stopping by, and for the add to your blogroll. Good luck on your new site!

    Oh, and in 1979 I was three, so I was probably not a semi-finalist of much. The blog title is inspired by one of my favorite songs – 1979 Semi-Finalist by The Bad Plus. Not only do I love the song (and the band) and like the way the title sounds, but it seems fairly representative of my life…I feel destined to forever be a semi-finalist – if I’m lucky. 😉

    Here is another “I hate Ben Lyons” link for you (mine, that is): http://stopbenlyons.blogspot.com/

    By the way, regarding conflict of interest, I hear that he not only gushes over stars but he is actually in some of the movies he raves about, including Superbad and The House Bunny: http://www.sliceofscifi.com/2008/08/30/ben-lyons-top-10-summer-08-films/
