I tend to have a very high toleration level, for instance I don't mind too much, shirking children or barking dogs, fussy women or effeminate men, anonymous lurkers or internet trolls, nor even real ego's such as Donald Trump or Piers Morgan but there is one thing who I just have to switch off from whenever I see or hear him in voice or print and that is the self absorbed film critic Mark Kermode.

He seems to have a massive following of hero worshipers and is part of one of BBC's radio flag shows along with Simon Mayo on their weekly film review but I just don't get him at all.

Fair enough if you are interested in if he likes a film or not but he goes much further than that into banging on for hours and going into extremes about them.

Ok I guess it was sort of his way to stand out from the rest and get noticed but really who ultimately gives a fuck - its only a film he's seen after all - in fact something that we all could go and do if we wanted to.

It's seemed to have morphed into a semi-intellectual and trendy twenty/thirty somethings love in following he (and to a lesser extent Mayo) have attracted to themselves and which he revels in and plays more and more to.

No doubt he's laughing all the way to the bank and his job - to see a number of private viewings down at some film company or others exclusive gatherings - is not that demanding of him in effort nor really in time either.

Anyway enough of my intolerance.

Apart from the usual suspects such as Donald and Piers, who are your intolerables?

Can't agree with you about Mark Kermode, Sluffy. We completely trust his judgement on films. He is amazingly articulate and not a single word of each review is superfluous. Never disappointed with his recommendations

He is the exact opposite of the Guardian's Peter Bradshaw. Now he IS irritating!

Agree about Diane Abbot, Lard.  Also, can't stand Jeremy Vine and Simon Cowell. Some of the current BBC footy pundits are unbelievably under-qualified to be serious critics. What the hell is Garth Crooks talking about every time he is let loose?! What are the Beeb's criteria for choosing Savage, Sutton and Gullit?

BBC Arts editor Will Gompertz. Mainly because he looks like one of those fish men from Stingray.

Kermode does have reasonable opinions which I respect but he does take a fairly academic approach and comes across as a it smug at times. Same can be said of Danny Leigh the resident critic on Film 2017.

I can't stick the Kermode / Mayo double act, they are so up themselves and up each other.

I find Kermode's appearance very creepy.

 I think he may be from another planet.

I cant stand the sight, or sound of, Lorraine Kelly, especially her false smile. Mutton dressed as lamb, and she's even appearing in those Very adverts along with young models. Obviously on some sort of ego trip. Apparently, and I haven't bothered checking this out, she's a real primadonna, and not a very nice person to work with.

Totally agree i cant stand her either, dont like her head it seems out of wack with the rest of her, dont like her accent, dont like her ranting on talking over people,i'd like to see her get her face slapped in a bitch fight. Lulu is supposed to be a right bitch as was Black.

I like the Friday film show with Kermode and Mayho they seem pretty switched on to me. 
The ones i struggle with are the judges on things like Landscape/Portrait artist of the year, now they speak some utter rubbish.

You watch that shit and then have the audacity to be surprised they're talking bollocks?

Saying "I like that" or "I don't like that" isn't difficult, yet it seems to  be beyond them. 

And after all, there is nothing more to art than whether or not you like it.

Anyone seen the latest series, 'Dr Fonseca's Good  Karma hospital' ? 
The idea is good, but there's been two shows, and it follows the usual stories, but with a very slight twist, but very predictable. Its good to see bits of India, but otherwise its bollocks.

That's not strictly true, is it, Lusty? 

It's surely possible to admire and appreciate the artistry involved in a piece of work, but not necessarily feel it is to your taste.

Indeed. Garth is a classic example of someone who becomes intoxicated with the malodorous exuberance of his own verbosity whenever the cameras start rolling.
