Title: The XIXAX Captions
Post by: Finn on December 20, 2003, 10:24:20 AM
What do yall think of the short captions under the director's names and other topics? I like the one under PTA that says, "He's not very food but we love him anyway". I also like the new one under the Coen Brothers and Idle Chatter just seems to get better each time it's changed.

Big change is ahead for Xixax in general...

Stay tuned for an all new Xixax, version 2004!

(Don't worry - it's not going to be like the Windows XP thing a few days ago)

Forums kind of suck, not very user friendly of an interface...blech.

Xixax is formed in a good way, ezboards and proboards, although free and eay to make, suck the nuts of a coyote.

most of those crazed ain't it cool nerds give me headaches.but a couple of them know what they're talking about. like this guy:

Quote from: some guy over at AICN
I understand why so many people blanch at (and/or flame) these reviews which have been filled with so much hyperbolae. But I think the blanchers and flamers (and some of the reviewers, certainly<g>) are missing an important point. Watching a movie (or reading a book for that matter) is almost *exactly* like being hypnotized. It requires willing participation, or at least a suspension of hostility. If you are absolutely determined to prove that these films are no big deal, and that all the rabid fans are just slobbering idiots, then that's the film experience you are going to have. Similarly, if you already know it's the greatest cinematic achievement of all time, THAT's the experience you are going to have. I would say that both sorts of people are probably cheated a bit (although the second sort is going to have a much better time). If you go in to the experience with an open mind, or at worst a modest bias in either direction, then the film has a chance to work on you. A great movie will pull you in, suspend your disbelief, give you chills and do whatever great movies do for you. A bad one will continually drop you back in your seat. In order for either of these things to happen, you need to make yourself "available" to the movie. That's what I try to do. (With these movies it's damn hard<g>.) There are always objective things you can say about the movie (I saw strings on the spaceships or whatever), but they often miss the point. One last thing I would like to touch on is that people have very different "capacities" for appreciating art in its various forms. That is partly due to upbringing and experience, and partly due to education and training. It's a bit of a mystery. I, for example, seem to be able to get much more enjoyment out of music than most people. I do not mean to imply that I am smarter or deeper or more sensitive or anything like that. Listening to music is just a very vivid experience for me for some reason. Paintings, on the other hand, leave me pretty cold. I could walk right past Van Gogh's (sp) Daisies without a second glance, while the next person could stare at it transfixed for hours or write a book abouot it. That is my loss and their gain. (Hmm, gotta work on that). My capacity to enjoy films is probably about average or a hair larger. Yikes, I am rambling. Time to close it up. My point is that a lot of the people in these forums probably have a very large "capacity" to enjoy films, so their reactions may seem very outlandish to others. I know people look at me sideways when I tell them that listening to The Magic Garden by The 5th Dimension is utterly absorbing, and the album is just as good as Sgt. Pepper, but it is. For me.

Agreed.

Why not just have one of the admins message the guy on that site and say "you post good, please come check out this message board, where you would be most welcome".

Simple, direct, and hopefully effective.

Funnily enough, I always try to get dates this way, but it never seems to work...

And then make sure to add, "...and Godardian thinks you're cute."

A really, really bad teen actor.  An overblown, overhyped up-and-comer.  Be prepared to cringe. (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0479471/)

I love the new Spielberg and Kubrick ones, the PTA caption is ok too, I just loved the 'food' one a lot. If the Wes Anderson one should ever be changed, it should be "How does an asshole like Wes Anderson get such a nice forum?"
