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
Fano: coeyagi: kryptoknightmare: 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.Occam's Razor - as we sit here talking about his sorry ass, he is getting more known, which is the goal in the post-talent horroscape of entertainment in the 21st century, and that is a lot more likely than him actually having diametrically opposed viewpoints to the entire industry as a whole.But to be that far wrong EVERY TIME? Occam's Razor says that he gets the buzz from other criticsand writes the opposite. He's just writing a contrarian review every time. You yourself could easily walk into an Oscar bait movie and trash it, and walk into a B movie and praise it. It really is that simple.
TheSelphie: Wow, I thought he was just an Internet troll. Turns out he's a giant douchebag in real life. Shouldn't be surprised.
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

So they guy's an intentional troll to get people to talk about him which we apparently are.
Mega Steve: Must be nice to get paid to troll
bikerbob59: I thought Steve McQueen was white.
