Ok...where to start.
First of all, cbrad...you know damn well the average 16 year old wouldn't have acknowledged the cinematography and direction of Barry Lyndon if they didn't like it, they would have just bashed it for being slow. I didn't do that, I pointed out the parts I liked about it. You know, It's kinda funny how Duck Sauce didn't get ridiculed for not liking the film but I FUCKING DID! That is fucking funny! That is agism, that is prejudice and that should be illegal on these boards. Alright, I'm not going to apolgize for my fucking opinion this time. I didn't go overboard, I didn't lose my temper, and I didn't bash the film. I said what I thought politely with respect to those that love the film.
And Pubrick...as for Strangelove....look, I admitted that I like the film for superficial reasons, sue me. I like it because it's still fun to watch despite not getting any of the jokes. Just to watch it for the direction and that stuff is good enough for me. I also fucking said I was willing to learn, alright. I didn't say, "oh, that happened before I was born so who gives a fuck about it." I said "I don't really get any of the jokes but I'd be willing to learn so that I could."
