Besides PTA, the films I remember getting the most discussion on this board amongst the majority were the Matrix movies. It seemed everyone here had an in depth theory about that trilogy and the discussion went on forever.
hahaha, this made me laugh, it's so true. i'm not so sure if that speaks for the maturity of the board since i may hav gone overboard in my defenses of avatar recently (....nope). but while everyone had long ass theories about the matrix mythology (hahaha), no one could deny even then that the series went to shit very quickly. if the avatar sequel sucks and i keep talking as if it doesn't, we may be reverting.
everyone wants to talk about popular films, it's like the bread and butter of a functioning message board. it also gives us the opportunity to come up with smart things that we can all go back to our real life and repeat as if we made them up ourselves. and everyone wants to talk shit about obvious garbage like Jennifer's Body, it's like the toothpick of a functioning message board. it keeps us abreast (and what a breast!) of what's utter garbage and should only be spoken of with total distain. and everyone wants to talk about good movies in a really smart way once in a while, or at least read about it when others do, that's the succulent meat of a functioning message board.
i don't think our tastes need to be more exclusive. but i like the idea of advertising, we're looking into it.
