I love the direction this thread took: People using the internet to post their opinion about how people shouldn't post their opinions on the internet.

No worse than that time I hired a rental car in America and discovered the pumps at the fuel stations are black for diesel and green for petrol. i.e. The exact opposite of the UK. Same colours, other way around. Because confusing those wouldn't be bad for the car.

The fact that they drive on the wrong side of the road should already have given you pause.

I'm not sure anyone is challenging the right to voice an opinion. However, having an opinion, and publishing it on-line, doesn't automatically make it immune to critique when others disagree. It obviously works both ways.

The thing you have to ask yourself is what kind of human sputum would upload their diatribes to youtube in the first place? Regardless of wether opinions align at some point, pretty much all the bloggers I've ever seen are so self absorbed in trying to justify their existence, that any intellectual/logical critique is secondary to the urge to show their face and talk to camera. They like believing they are the stars of their own show.

Why people even post these in replies is beyond me. I NEVER clicked on one EVER.

So just because it's something you don't like, they are of no value whatsoever...

Sure.

Again, why people even post these in replies is beyond me.<--

Mainland EU also Black for diesel and green for petrol. :-)

UK is the land of weirdo's...that's all... ;-)

I know, I've driven in Europe several times and it's exactly the same as in the UK.

It's America where it's the opposite way around.

EDIT: Lol, just realised I mis-typed in my first post. It's green for diesel in the US and black for petrol. It's f*cking confusing even without being there!

Getting a bit tired of youtube reviewers who bash anything that isn't 'Aliens'.

First thing, chill out with the derogatory comments. Second, it's not different to forums or Facebook or etc. There are people whose thoughts maybe valued and people whose are not. It's just a different avenue.

For those interested, Covenant now holds the prestige of being one of only a few films to have lost its Rotten Tomatoes seal of approval. It's plummeted to the 60's. I hope Fox takes note; I know it's not rocket science but the film did below average at the box office because the response was average.

-So tell us Ridley, what is this new Alien film about?
>It's going to be great. It will have David quoting poetry, David playing the flute, David creating the xenomorphs, David impersonating another android, and of course David wins at the end.
-But it's an Alien movie, shouldn't it have aliens in it?
>Shit, you're right. i guess we will have to put in a scene or two in the last half hour of the film
