Pontificate is a verb that means to express one's opinion in a pompous way. 

Our word of the day comes to us from the Catholic Church through the Latin word pontifex (PONE tee fecks) meaning ‘high priest or bishop.’ In time it came to be used outside of the church to refer to someone smugly offering their opinion as if came from God above. 

Andy loves to pontificate on every film he sees. It wouldn’t occur to him to consider that his opinion could be wrong.
