Armond White is the personification of YouTube comments.

Mugato: adamgreeney: Other than Ebert and Roeper (through proximity to Ebert), White is the only movie critic I know by name. Thats disturbing yet totally unsurprising.

Well it's a sort of pathetic profession. Unless you're doing it in a podcast or for comedy. But actually getting paid to criticize others' work is pretty lame.

/been a movie critic since age 5
//never sought money for it


That's really cool, Mugato. Because you never sought money for it, I bet your reviews are all shades of awesome. You don't have to pander to anyone.

The one you're thinking of is mostly gray with blotches of green and brown, depending on the flesh consumption by various microbes and worms.

I'm convinced at this point that Armond White's entire persona is some elaborate performance art, created as a commentary on modern criticism.   No one can be this big of a dick, for no apparent reason at all.

LesserEvil: Magorn: That this man is an idiot troll is a given, but when you are a White guy (literally) calling a black man who is accepting and award for a widely praised film about extremely racially charged issues, and you call him "a doorman and a garbage man"  that crosses the line from "obnoxiously trolling" to "Michael Richards-style career killing racist comment"


I wouldn't be surprised if this has career implications for Mr. White

Literally. Yup.


Cue "that's the joke" pic... Notice the capital "W" in "White man". He IS literally a "White man". A man named "White".

Having read TFA, I realized I'd never heard of this guy, so I went to Rotten Tomatoes to check out his reviews.  (thanks by the way for whoever up-thread explained why there were no reviews of his from recent movies).  I found this gem in his review summaries:

Jackass 3D Steve O's Super Cocktail Bungee routine in a feces-filled port-a-john utilizes distance and trajectory in a way that recalls the great waterslide joke in Norbit (and should help rehabilitate that wonderful film's unfair reputation)."

This guy has always intrigued me.  I don't think he is a "troll", as many people have said.  I want to believe he's just a misunderstood guy with interestingly unpopular opinions (something I love to read).  I've read and agree with many of his reviews, in fact.

Honestly I think the truth is far more banal:  he is a really, really outspoken guy who has poor taste in movies.
