I keep a loose grip on this thing called an opinion, and the ones I have are generally around art because that really is my only true stomping ground.
I rank these on a scale from 1–10, 1 being little more than a hunch and 10 being a deeply held conviction.
I'm working on a list of more peppy opinions. The ones that immediately came to mind are a bit...combative.
Eric Clapton is bland, dull, predictable, and the most overrated musician of his generation.
Dave Grohl is his generation's (non-racist) Eric Clapton.
Though I truly love The Beatles, "Yesterday" by Paul McCartney is still the most overrated song of all time.
Quentin Tarantino's movies were better when they were edited by Sally Menke. I have a hunch that she reined in his bloat.
John Cale is more talented than Lou Reed in everything except lyric-writing and caustic wit.
Wes Anderson needs to direct something that he had no hand in writing, maybe something by the Safdie Brothers.
Ranking something as 7 out of 10 is cowardly.
The Beatles < The Beach Boys
Ranking something as 5 out of 10 is boring.
The Safdie Brothers should direct something written by Wes Anderson.
