You're right. Even at that size, they're not worth reading.

GT, I'm just joking btw. That was a joke just was waiting to be made, I do enjoy your posts, you give good, thorough piece of mind that's actually intelligent, not always agreeable though.

I also think Magnolia may block Boogie Nights and Punch-Drunk Love because a lot of people will support the idea of variety and may only pick one PTA film.


You mean in the final 15, right?


Yea. I'm sure all three are in the top 50.

I have the strangest feeling I may like only 3 to 5 of the 50 films nominated. I kinda find that funny.


forget it.  no point.  *(nods head in agreement)

thats not really funny.  its just kind of sad for you.  you waste a lot of money watching movies you dont like or care about.  if my success ratio for finding something enjoyable was as low as yours i probably wouldve given up watching movies altogether.  like i said before, when did you stop going to enjoy them and start going to critique them?  why do you feel like your tastes are so superior, that without having any idea whats on the list, ANY FUCKING IDEA, you have to go popping your mouth off about how you will PROBABLY not like most all of them?  does that make you better than us?  why are you telling us this?

I will try to be patient but, as Homer Simpson said after being informed that a meal will take 30 seconds to warm in the microwave: "Thirty seconds?!?! But I want it now!"

actually that's when Moe gets a deep fryer from the navy which he boasts can flash-fry a buffalo in 40 seconds. Homer then says, i want it now.

Quote from: SoNowThen
that would be keeping with your current ratio of liking 1 out of every 2000 films you see....  :wink:

that's not even true. ur confusing him with Pete.

"I stand corrected." - Lisa Simpson.
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

OH gawd this is insane. What I said was a joke, but for the sake of replying because I know you and many others believe everything in this paragraph about me, here it goes:

I still enjoy movies, but I critique as well. Can a paragraph of writing convey all the feelings I felt for a film? No. Do you know me? No.

Never, ever have I said my tastes are superior to anyone else's. Considering the attitude of some people here, I'm quite good in being fair in arguments and prolly get the best feeling I can get here when other guys writing will say they disagree with me but still like me because I am fair with everyone.

And to repeat, what I said was a joke. I can take guesses to what will be on the final 50, but a person only into romantic comedies would likely also find maybe 3 to 5 movies on the top 50 list he'd actually like. A lot of people here look down on romantic comedies in comparison to dramas so what would the drama guys represent to that guy?

Last I checked, this is a movie discussion board and I have never got criticized of just slamming films to slam them, I am discussing them. My enjoyment of movies is not for here, but for me actually watching the movies. Oh, and to let you know something personally, I'm beginning filmming next month on my first short film. It won't be anything dramatic at all, but a mock porno. No nudity in the movie, but my friends and i have written a bunch of mock porno scenes and were going to be goofing people we known by having them as characters in the movie. See, if i ever make it big in anything, I'll say my first movie was a fucking mock porn with no interest to be anything else but that. For people who know me here, this may be against what is expected of me. Not to my friends at all. They know me as someone else and have followed me trying to get this project made for almost 2 years now.

So, next time you try to make comments on who i am, realize the limitations of doing that on a movie discussion board when I'm just really discussing the points of a movie and nothing else! Fuck.

PS. Gracias, Slobh. Must give thanks always to the people that back me.
