Re: EpDis: Deathwalker

I have no problem at all with people that do take the creators words into account. It's a valid form of art critique, but it's not one that I follow. I can see where it is helpful and why people do follow it, but it's never appealed to me and personally I don't see as much value in that as I do in individual interpretation.

Pretty much my only problem with including creator commentary comes when you get people that can't form a thought of their own and instead reply to any question with quote after quote from the creator. This is especially prevalent among Star Wars fans, and one of the reasons I rarely if ever discuss Star Wars with actual hardcore Star Wars fans anymore.
