"I'm gonna make a monster movie about film critics some time, and it will be critically panned." David Carr uttered these words and the visual image of that alone has officially made my Friday.

In this surprisingly entertaining but unsurprisingly insightful video on The New York Times website, film critic A.O. Scott (who just recently received a Twitter lashing from Nicky Fury himself following his less-than-positive assessment of THE AVENGERS) and writer David Carr sit down to discuss the relevance of cultural criticism as a whole, and film criticism in particular. Check it out after the jump.

UPDATE: Sorry, this made my Friday.
