regardless of to whom it was directed, you are talking to everyone if you're on an online messageboard.

No one's addressed this "problem" (if you could call it that) seriously until now.

Just a matter of difference of opinion which you seem to take oh so very personally.  Your whole attitude is tiresome.  Accept the fact that some people do have different opinions than yours, and you aren't right all the time.

right back atcha buddy. u were the one who originally freaked out cos i dissed ur precious list. u came at me with sum stupid sarcastic comment cos i called the list less than essential. so who's taking things personally here, i couldn't give two shits if u like the 'horror genre' or not. the problem with the whole argument is ur definition of horror differs from other ppl's, and that's based on what movies u've seen and ur own prejudices, so whatever. there's no way anyone can change that.

in the other threads the argument was over and now u've turned this thread into the same old crap. i don't know how themodernage has the patience to deal with u, i'm sorry if it wasn't dealt with to ur supreme satisfaction until now. ur incessant demands that ppl defend THEIR OWN opinions against urs, which is what this thread is about, is proof that u are much more in love with urself than anyone else here.

i just hope that this is the last time u hav a cry about it. it's truly tiresome, as many members (new and old) hav testified already in this thread.

I deleted it. Totally unnecessary since the argument was already over. And if SHAFTR has a problem with that then SHAFTR can PM me about it.

So no arguing then?
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

i could maybe see your point if you were bashing aliens because [even though its a fun film] its basically gratuitious action and over the top.


Wait a minute. If we're talking humanity and character development, then "Aliens" goes even further than "Alien." Each soldier was his/her own character moreso than those on the Nostromo. And Ripley was developed more; she was given maternal instincts. Sigorney Weaver was Oscar nominated for "Aliens;" unheard of for an action/horror role. She couldn't have done that without a better character to play.

...sorry, i havent been around my computer lately so i couldnt respond to this mac.  but now i got some time.  first off, i honeslty liked aliensmore than alien but i think the latter is a better film IMO.  but i think that camerons film is more action oriented and my reasonings for this begin with the tagline itself 'this time its war". then the whole scenerio of the humans vs. alien  with a rag-tag bunch of generic characters including  the cheesy characters like the mexican/hispanic/latino lesbien-like vasquez and bill paxtons character all feel fake.  this film reminds me of predator 2.  both are [when scaled down] overzealous  action films.  i know i sound like an idiot and i cant really explain it better than the  way i just did it.  i just think that the way ridley scott[who is light years ahead of cameron in terms of a skilled director]  handeled alienwith less is more aproach[compared to aliens] benefited the film.

Horror films are bullshit.
