i don't like the over-praise (different to overrating?) either, but what i was originally replying to was ur agreement with brockly's nonsensical anti-gondry remark.
it seems that there's a fanboy favorite every year, where ppl just vote automatically on what a "smart" person would vote on, and not on what is actually the best. now to repeat myself: this year it's different cos eternal is the actually the best, (next to the dreamers which everyone slept on), whereas with those other examples they were not that good at all.
it's probably a confusion between overrated and overpraised. i don't think a good reviewer can overrate a good movie, but a bunch of dumbasses can easily overpraise sumthing with countless reviews of "this movie is trippy!". that's what sucks.
