So yeah, White is an attention-seeking idiot.
Armond White is just an idiot.
In order to further incense fans, White's reviews are generally filled with incomprehensible, psuedo-intellectual rambling about subjects only tangentially related to the film at hand, and ultimately he will offer no concrete reasoning as to his contrarian opinions. Of course this is all carefully plotted for maximum lulz, and indeed, his reviews are extensively discussed on the internet by rabid fanboys, thus giving him huge amounts of PR and exposure. Brilliant.
White is paid well for the privilege of pissing people off, and I for one think we should salute him as the final evolution of the /b/tard.
Named after the movie critic Armond White, who hates films like "Slumdog Millionare" and thinks "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" is a, quote, "modern classic."
Can be shortened to just Armond for a more obscure reference.
"Fine, Armond White, be that way..."
His modus operandi is reviewing films by going off into incoherent rants, patronizing whoever disagrees with him, and making incredibly vague references to "nihilism" to attack films/filmmakers he doesn't like, or their fans.
"White is, as charged, a troll; a smart and knowing one, but a troll"--Roger Ebert, getting it right
