So I was just thinking about how much my parents obstruct my interest in film and how many of my friends are into movies at all as much as myself (which is none) and that got me thinking: how many young moviegoers here have the same kind of problem? I am 15 and consider myself a bit more advanced than most teenagers as regards to cinema, etc. I often find myself flabbergasted by other teenagers and their tastes (for instance, one of my friends prefers Chicago over Moulin Rouge, which is fine...but she likes Chicago more because it has more aspects of theater, so seeing as shes interested in theater, I think her opinion is a little biased and unfair) and whenever friends go out to the movies they always insist on seeing some romantic-comedy or horror/slasher flick instead of something great like, say, Lost in Translation. And as far as my parents go, they can't stand it when I pay mucho dinero (spelling?) on DVDs to the point of almost not allowing me to buy them if they cost more than $25. And they try to restrict my viewing material, like my Mom wouldn't allow me to see Boogie Nights, though I ended up buying it anyways. And I didn't even mention the trouble of going to R- movies. So, in any case, I'm just wondering if anyone here goes through the same shit as I do because of my 'immature' age.

...the fact that your friend would like any of those movies flabbergassed me to the max.....and then some .....



but to answer your question..........cheer up.....have a 7 up or something....and you'll grow out of it.....

and you wiil eventually get it......sorta like riding an elevator..
1.  you first look at the elevator and decide which "floor" you would like to acess

2.  you push the button on the wall next to the elevator door....to upon the door...

3.  when the door opens you walk in-haphazardly-then say.."hi" to the guy with the hat..and tell.ask him to push the disired floor.....

4.  while in the elevator....on your ride up...stand their and close your eyes...that moment of riding....alongside w/the elevator music..is what scienntist say."equilibrium in B flat"......thats something to  correlate self-discovery..

5.  once you have reached your disired floor.....the door..will open...


6.  THe eND

is .it disire or desire?

I'd choose Moulin Rouge over Chicago any time what-so-ever!

well you're on the right track it seems, but theres no hurry.  just remember that horror flicks and romantic comedies can be good too.  dont discriminate genres; try to be open to all kinds of movies.  you dont want to become snobby or look down on your friends because you are interested in other things.  just like what you are interested in, and dont feel the need to grow up to be more knowledgable on things.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I'm 15 too....i dont know.  being in the film program im in allows me to meet tons of people my age with similar taste, plus, ive gotten my dad into serious cinema too.  i guess im just lucky like that.  I don't really mind seeing shitty teen movies though.  Just ways to bond with my non-cinema class friends.  they're also good for blowing off and making out through.

You youngsters have it pretty easy with dvd's being mainstream and all.  Imagine telling your friends in the cafeteria that you're really excited to pick up that $100 criterion laserdisc of Raging Bull special ordered from Borders.  Now that's awkward.

EDIT: haggard grammar

I think it's a pretty fucking valid reason to prefer between two movies the one who deals the most with stuff you're interested in. Every honest person prefer the movie they feel most connected to. Others prefer the one with the best editing or the most original camera use and shit on other people who like more movies they enjoy watching more.

I'm totally with you on this one, Chest.

My parents still won't let me see rated R movies.  That's if they know they're R.  Since they know nothing about movies and don't have time to sift through my 70-some odd movies, I'm in the clear.

If they only knew...

And as for my friends.  I've been gettign them into film so they can appreciate it, too.  A lot of people I know are film idiots, however.  And that makes me a saaaaaad panda.

Well I can't really tell if you understand what I'm saying....she looks at these movies from a theatrical point of view....which I don't think makes sense because they are in fact movies, not theatre productions. Do you know what I'm saying?

Well, first off, your friends' tastes will probably differ from yours no matter how old you are. You could try saying something like "You know, you guys decided which movie to watch last time, perhaps I could do it today?". They'll probably say the majority decides, but it's worth a shot. Perhaps if they see enough quality movies, they'll end up going to more, though knowing some of my own friends are like yours, they probably won't. Again, it's worth a shot.

And about the restrictions from your parents; I know exactly how you feel. Luckily I just turned eighteen, and can finally order R1 (I'm norwegian) DVDs without the packages having my mothers name on them  :-D Anyways, you just kinda weather through it, I guess. Step by step. You could tell your parents why you wanted to buy Boogie Nights: for its cinematic brilliance, not for a few half-pornographic sequences (I hope). And if it's any comfort, I always thought you were older.
