seriously, I believe our judgement is obviously affected by a predisposition of like or dislike of who produces creative material, music/movies/etc., and we are unable to truly judge material objectively if we have that predisposition going in.

Ben Affleck is a perfect example, anything he does has to first overcome the knee-jerk anti-Affleck reflex of the cinema crowd. Mel Gibson could direct the best movie ever made and there would be people who wouldn't want to admit it was even good. right, Bax?

have there been reports of Gibson pushing for lower wages and rights for people who work on movies? has he donated millions of $$ for political efforts to curb g@y rights? see, these are REAL issues, not someone saying some things that are offensive. by buying Papa John's, no matter how good it is, i would be literally supporting anti-worker and anti-g@y activism. sorry if you are unable to tell the difference between things tangible and otherwise
