Often times you may come across those judgmental people whether it be on the internet or in real life they will judge you and say you are a grown man (or woman) why do you watch those superhero movies?  For instance a few days ago my coworker John complained to me that he is sick and tired of hearing other "grown men" talk so enthusiastically about the Avengers and other superhero movies, how can a self respecting man enjoy those movies? he wondered. I told him that although I agree that those movies are not interesting I have no right to tell others what to watch and what not to watch.

How do you deal with criticism like that?

I for one believe all movies are made for everyone and although I personally do not like superhero movies they do not interest me and not because I believe they are too kid friendly for me they are just not my style. To give you a better understanding of what movies I am about, I love No Country For Old Men, There Will Be Blood, Shawshank Redemption, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Apocalypse Now,The Godfather films (except for the 3rd one).   You may find those movies boring and uninteresting and that is exactly my point, everyone has different tastes in movies.   But how do we deal with criticism ?

I trust no one, not even myself.
