    I meant from your posts on the thread, as a whole. The themes I was noticing.
    But implying that a movie can't be objectively good or bad is a separate argument. My original question relies on the assumption that Avatar is objectively bad, not subjectively bad. Even if you can't grant me that assumption, that doesn't mean my question falls apart. You can see above that my question can survive without any reference to a bad movie such as Avatar.
    Okay, that works better then. I think more people would have posted on this thread if you hadn't used a movie example -- probably because they, like me, would have gotten stuck on the "he thinks movies are objectively bad!" thing.

    I still maintain that you answered your thread's own question, here:
