Censorship at the CBC

Speaking of censorship…I responded to Eli Glasner’s choices as the “best” pictures of the year on CBC’s website and my comment was “disabled” because, apparently, the administrators thought I was too mean for pointing out that Eli’s pick for the second best film of 2018 was an ANIMATED SUPERHERO MOVIE.

I took a screen shot of my disallowed, censored comment and you can judge for yourself if I was out of line.

Er, I spot a typo, that line should read “positively Mamet-ian brilliance”.

  1. Well naturally any critical standard is shunned by the media and the industry. Keep up the good fight.

      Film “reviewers” these days have the aesthetic standards of 12-year olds. It’s really embarrassing having a prominent movie critic who grew up on comic books and appears to have skipped all of his film theory courses and played “Dungeons and Dragons” instead…
