That's just the POINT. No one knows who you are. So how can we trust your opinion?

Now, since we are all open minded individuals on this board we WOULD give you the benefit of the doubt, IF YOU HAD SEEN THE MOVIE.

Maybe, maybe not. You admit not knowing the answer to the question, so it's just SPECULATION. Specualtion can get you burned. Ask an oil man.

You have to NAME SOURCES for their opinions to be considered valid. For all I know your source is Jeffrey Lyons or Micheal Medved, who dislike the films due to it not being "Christian" enough. I have no idea who your sources are, and I have no idea who you are, so why would I trust what your friends say?

Again, you have to PROVE CREDIBILITY before your opions about A FILM YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN are given CREDENCE. For all I know you are a cock fluffer and attend movie festivals to provide blowjobs for the patrons. I have no idea, you have provided no frame of refrence. You could be a Tom Cruise Stalker and attend the festivals in hopes of seeing his ass. I have no idea. Back it up with examples.

Your predictions have as much sway as a National Enquirer psychic.

And ANY CREDIBLE critic or pundit would reserve judgement on the film until he has seen it, or AT LEAST until sources that he can CITE have made public their opinions.

And NO CREDIBLE person would call a film THEY HAVEN'T SEEN GARBAGE. The magic Eight Ball would say that "The Outllok doesn't look Good" at least.

Why not call me garbage? It's your favorite word.

Again, you have NO CREDIBILITY. My name is Tom Hayes and I'll stand behind my shit. A lot of people know me here, and I CAN provide refrencees if needed.

A review of your posts: Because I have READ and SEEN your post my review is : Red is full of garbage.
