Comment from an angry Humpday fan

This was a comment re: my post about Humpday & G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, I've been laughing about it for days:

"Wait. So you "definitely want to see GI Joe" - a big budget Hollywood piece of crap although you admit "it might suck" but you're "not so sure" about Humpday?? Someone with no budget roots and really no real budget and you dont support, no forget that, you are not the least bit interested in something more real and honest and a more organic way of working that has coming out of the no budget digital community that you claim for years to support and you wont support it?

So typical. You subtly hate on any no budget film that achieves ANY level of mainstream success. I guess you only support DIY work that has to rely only on DIY distribution. Tully was right. You are a fucking fraud.

Your blog is done. You have been exposed. Thanks for the heads-up warning, Tully."

So, watchout bloggers, don't say that G.I. Joe might be better than Humpday (really, who would take such a comparison seriously? Besides Anonymous quoted above), 'cause you might get some angry comments.

I still think those two movies may work together well - or, a movie that combines the two worlds - the world of Humpday & G.I. Joe might work better than the two separate movies. Get on it people, a big budget mumblecore action movie! It's what the world needs for next summer.

A movie being indie isn't a reason to see it and can't abide anyone who would lambaste an indie filmmaker just because he doesn't support someone else in a modestly similar filmmaking (style's not the work) idiom.

I think too many movies in the past have been betting on the indie thing and not doing quality work. We want movies that give us something in return because cred for seeing something indie gets old fast.
