Needless cynicism

I refer not to Clemmensen's review, but rather to his summary of the film. I have no time for Divergent myself - it's clumsy, derivative, and relies on the main character being a Special Snowflake, JUST LIKE YOU, READER!

With that in mind, don't take me as a fanboy when I say that Clemmensen is aiming for irreverent snark and hitting misguided sexism. I couldn't count on ten pairs of hands the number of times I've seen movies for teens dismissed as "teen angst". More importantly:

"Logical fallacies abound once again, but if you're a teenage girl, who cares?"

If you don't see the misogyny there then idek what to say to you.
