@mumbo jumbo what is there to worry? What fans call or not call their favorite is their thing.
learning the history of cinema is an entirely different thing. Who cares for fans there? That is where people are taught what to believe and what not to. In that sense, I am never the one in need of looking back. I can re-study it all again, this time not as a course, coz it's fun to study.
Next time, try forming an opinion of your own and get strong enough to sell it. Then, come & ask me to re-look.
