So taking part in something automatically devalues your opinion of that thing? A "fan" of gigposters can say as they please, but a person who has made a handful of posters has to defend their opinions in a completely different way?
This is some fertile philosophical ground here. Very engaging. Like The Lake House, my fave movie of 2006.
I don't buy the pot/kettle/black line of thinking myself. I don't need to raise millions of dollars, write a script, hire a movie crew and direct & edit a film to be able to say that "Reindeer Games" was a terrible goddamned movie.
