A question for the readers / bloggers / film critics: When negatively critiquing a film, is saying the film is "boring" a valid way to support your opinion? Movies are, among other things, a form of entertainment, and if a movie fails to be entertaining, isn't that falling short of one of the main standards of cinema? Then again, I would think that at least some people out there would have a problem with reducing the power of movies to simply a form of entertainment.
This question is designed to provoke conversation and debate more than anything else, so please speak up with your opinions in the comments section below. I am very interested to see what you all have to say regarding this topic.
