Because PEOPLE ARE SCARED OF OPINIONS THAT AREN'T THEIR OWN. I mean it when I say this fanbases attitude towards critics is one of the most toxic and cancerous things about it - it pisses me off to no end and honestly makes me ashamed to be a Transformers fan. No one is saying you have to agree with critics but the fact is they make their money doing what they do and harm nobody. Just because you don't like someone disagreeing with you doesn't mean they're evil or bad. I disagree with them most of the time (Again, I loved Ang Lee's Hulk), so I don't read their reviews. You know what I DON'T do? Bitch and moan that they're out of touch or biased because I disagree. This is something the fanbase (not all of you guys, but the ones who need to hear it, you know who you are) need to grow the fuck up about. If you get so mad that someone hates a movie you like that you look down on the profession as a whole and think they're all evil you need to look at yourself.
