Ben Shapiro did not hold back his opinion on this year’s Best Picture Oscar winner Everything Everywhere All at Once. It seems like the conservative political commentator was not a fan of the movie. Netizens have since taken to social media to troll him over his movie criticism.
The 39 year old took to his Twitter account and told his 5.5 million followers that the Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert-directed movie was “meh.” Ben Shapiro said in a tweet:
“In five years, nobody will watch “Everything Everywhere All At Once.” The movie is meh. It is overlong (2 hrs 19 min!), confused, and generally bizarre. In fact, nobody has watched a single best picture winner five years later since 2007’s “No Country For Old Men.”
Twitter user @AbeGoldfarb responded to Shapiro’s tweet by pointing out the latter’s failed screenwriting career. They said:
“Everything about Ben Shapiro starts to make sense when you find out he failed as a screenwriter.”
For those unversed, Ben Shapiro could have had a career in screenwriting for television series. After graduating from Harvard Law School, he spoke with several television executives about liberalism in the entertainment industry. That was when he met producer Lenny Goldberg, the head of programming for ABC. Shapiro was asked to write a pilot episode for a show set at Harvard Law School. However, he was quickly “blacklisted” from the industry due to his political views.
Netizens react to Ben Shapiro’s views on Everything Everywhere All at Once
Internet users did not entertain Ben Shapiro’s views on the multi-award winning movie. Netizens trolled the political commentator relentlessly. Others also wrote about how they were watching several long Oscar-winning movies, including Forrest Gump, Titanic and Gladiator amongst others. A few reactions to his comments read:
Ben Shapiro criticizes Glass Onion
This is not the first time the podcast host has critically reviewed a popular movie. While speaking about Glass Onion, he criticized Ed Norton’s portrayal of an Elon Musk-esque character. Shapiro said:
“Rian Johnson’s politics is as lazy as his writing. His take on the universe is that Elon Musk is a bad and stupid man and that anyone who likes him- in media, politics, or tech- is being paid off by him.”
Shapiro also roasted HBO’s The Last of Us for the lack of zombies in the fan-favorite show.
The political commentator has a niche list of television shows that he has applauded. Unsurprisingly, each of them has a conservative message to put across. The series that topped the list included action thriller 24 by Keifer Sutherland. A few other series included Lost, Magnum PI and Walker Texas Ranger.
Comedy series on Shapiro’s list included South Park, King of the Hill, The Cosby Show, The Waltons, Leave it to Beaver and the inoffensive popular series Everybody Loves Raymond.
In other news, Shapiro accused Prince Harry of being arrogant and self-delusional on TalkTV alongside Piers Morgan. Speaking about how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle cost UK citizens £300,000 of their taxpayer money, Shapiro stated that the Sussex couple “are quite terrible.”
