No, I'm not making that generalization at all-- I'm strictly directing my comments at responses of the "Stop expecting an Oscar-movie/the Bourne trilogy-- Why don't you understand that it's just for fun!" variety are unjust strawman accusations.
Okay, I thought you were trying to imply that all responses were the unjust Bourne response. In the case that someone who was only expecting cheap entertainment doesn't like the Fast movies yet is accused of the Bourne analogy, you're correct. Congratulations. Nobody was ever disputing that. However, it is impossible to make the claim that zero people are expecting a serious movie, especially after the (in my opinion) bad attempt at a more serious movie in #4.
Why is pointing out how someone threw an insult that didn't make sense considered condescension? Claiming that they aren't good movies isn't an ignorant stance in any way.
Again, you're missing my point. I understand you disagree with that particular guy, but why do you feel the need to point out his choice of word? Clearly, you understood what he meant.
But I explained what was reductive and false about them. It only makes sense to tell someone they're trivializing something when they're doing it unfairly.
Yes, you did explain what was reductive, and it was clear to me that you misinterpreted what I wrote. It happens. But this doesn't change the fact that you took my original response directed at nobody in particular and trivialized it.
