    Wow, I disagreed with nearly every point that reviewer made about Toy Story 3.

  • It’s Armond White. He purposely writes the opposite of public opinion just to piss people off. It’s obvious he’s not stupid. Just wrong.

    So he is like the voter that doesn’t vote for a sure-fire Hall of Fame baseball player on the first ballot just for the hell of it? Just to make sure that the player isn’t a unanimous selection (or in this case, to ensure that Toy Story 3 isn’t 100% on Rotten Tomatoes). What a douche.
