Yeah, that is what I said.


The essay suck.

That is what we are saying.

They suck.

The author of the essay is writing fiction and inventing storylines and themes.

The essays suck

Get over it.

They are fiction writing.

They suck.

So its okay for people to invent themes and meanings that the film didn't at all communicate, at all?

Its fiction writing.

It sucks.

>Bottom line, you may not agree, but the amount of hate is

No, the fact that this bitch has a job writing and analyzing film is ridiculous.

He needs to write trashy romance novels.

His writing sucks.

Well, I *DO* understand art analysis.

These essays were not art analysis.

They are fiction writing.

They suck.
