Discussing Spiderman 3 I described myself as "usually a relatively harsh judge of films" to which Scott Lemieux replied, "dude, you like Michael Bay movies."

That seems to the point, and actually explains my Spiderman-related perplexity. Introspecting a bit, I think I'm harsher than most movie fans on highbrow indie stuff and also on Hollywood comedies, but also much, much, much more forgiving of summer popcorn movies.
