Why is scaruffi so adored among the music community but so insignificant in the film community? are we so starved for decent critics?
>>
>>98918577
He has good music recs but pretty average movie recs. also yes
>>
>>98918577
any critic in any medium is completely undeserving of any respect
>>
>>98918577
His taste is midwit tier in both cinema and literature. He should stick to music.
>>
because the king of /tv/ is armond white, scaruffi cant beat him there
>>
>>98918577
I just like him cause he's not fantano … plus he has some good recs even if there /mu/ core. At least scaruffi fans know they are pretentious and can joke about themselves. Fantanos fans are legit children who post the care giver on there chart
>>
>>98920147
For me, it's Armored Skeptic's movie YT channel
>>
>>98918577
The only popular critics/influencers in the film community are fucking plebeians. It's a much more accessible medium of art than music, especially nowadays with its flashing colours and capeshit. This is immediately evident by the absolute state of Letterboxd compared to rym, which at least has a proper patrician scene, also the popularity and quality of /tv/ compared to /mu/. Even though /mu/ is one of the most self-loathing boards on the site, it's still actually one of the best and most elite.
>>
>>98918577
music community? his entire fanbase consists of 50 drone incels/trannies on here, reddit and rym. droning in general is pathetic, but to do it to a pseudo who plays rolling stone critic in his spare time....well

it's a matter of taste retard, if you're putting the mars volta record in the top 100 albums ever made you're free to do so because taste is completely subjective but I'm also free to laugh at you for it, especially when you're 90 years old and consider yourself some type of autistic connoisseur of the arts. it's absolutely embarrassing and trying to defend it warrants nothing other than turbo keks from anyone who isn't a complete earlet.

yeah, Francesco Ganci made it, based on Scaruffi's 9, 8.5's and some random 8's. There are literally hundreds of other 8's that could have been on there instead. Stay low IQ. No wonder the Cramps is beyond you.
>>

His taste in film is pretty based.

https://rateyourmusic.com/list/rainnyday/scaruffi-in-the-movies-9s/

>>98921789
Go email Scaruffi asking if he picked those 8's or if the person who made the chart did. Then kill yourself when you find out I was right.
>>
>>98921798
i'm not emailing some faggot with ass tier taste about what his top 100 is you dumb fuck, if he didn't want it to be a public representation of his top 100 then he shouldn't have refereed as "my top 100".

Totally missing the point. He's not saying G.I. Joe is better than Breathless, but that those movies are underrated by worse critics who allege to know better.

so he's a critic of critics or movies?

>>98932049
glad i'm not the only one who thinks like this
>>
>>98931997
it's fine if you just want to listen to it as dumb fun but why put this stuff on a list of the best music ever made? i don't get what makes scruffy worth paying attention to, if he was just some guy on rym nobody would care about what he listens to, but because he has his own website suddenly people think that means his opinion has inherently higher value. same deal with fantano, i don't get why you guys take these fags seriously.

In the world of rock criticism he's among the very few worth a shit critic if not the only
But many film critics are worth their salt and many have the same opinions as him even,so he doesn't stand out at all
He'd never stand out among jazz, or classical critics,nor literature critics,because for them taking their medium seriously and not being blinded by commercial or mediatic success is common
Scruffy-Doo himself acknowledges this in the infamous Beatles pasta,even
>>
>>98936648
>I think the true tastelet is the one who needs other people to decide what he likes
that's not how it works. a critic is just someone who serves as a smart recommendation engine for finding new music to give a shot. if a site or person largely shares your taste and if you mostly respect their opinions, then if they rate something very highly you might listen to something you like that you otherwise might not have known about or considered listening to
>>
>>98932049
Because it's more exciting and efficient than simply imagining retards being retards
>>98932298
Because he takes his ratings far more seriously and is far more consistent and reliable than any other critic. He has no particular genre biases and has an impressive working knowledge of rock music history. If he posted attached the corresponding passages for every album in rym that he reviewed, he absolutely would still get a shitload of attention for all of those reasons.
