The most annoying sentence ever written

by Sonny Bunch on December 19, 2012

But I’m not a cinefile (though I tried my hand at screenwriting years ago, and was also the editor of a film magazine for some time).

I just. Wow. I hate everything about that sentence, from the misspelling of cinephile to the casual admission that an editor of a film magazine doesn’t feel the need to enjoy movies to her saying she “tried her hand” at screenwriting. There’s just so much to be annoyed by!

Anyway, this is from a post written by a person who doesn’t like Django Unchained because it uses bad words. Again: I’m fascinated to see if the left’s response to Django Unchained will be as fraught as their response to Zero Dark Thirty. I have a feeling it will be. And I kinda love it.
