People I Hate #624 (In A Series)

Who: Any movie reviewer who uses the phrase “Cowabunga!” to review the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film.

Why: It’s the equivalent of using “Zap! Pow! Bam!” in a headline for an article on comic books. It’s lazy writing based on a cursory knowledge of the subject which, regardless of the cinematic production, deserves an honest, fresh appraisal.

How I justify it: I have little tolerance for trite, hackneyed phrasing, especially from people who are supposed to critique creative offerings. You get paid to watch movies for a living, the least you can do is be original!
