I find reviewers who just hate fantasy more puzzling than annoying (though of course I'm not an author/producer.) What service do they think they are providing? It's not like fantasy is difficult to recognize, so they have to warn off other fantasy-haters. And it leads readers who don't agree on that point to write off any other observations they have.

It just seems like a pointless exercise -- why would you review something you're automatically not going to like, regardless of its actual content?

(My pet peeve is actors who declare proudly "I didn't know anything about science fiction/fantasy before I took this role..." It's the genre condescension all over again. They don't have to be a fan, but it's impossible any more to grow up in this culture and know nothing about it.)
