Re: Lady Bird

While I disagree and believe that originality is not only necessary but vital (otherwise why not just re-watch the original one over and over), that wasn't my point. Cliché means to overuse something to the point where it looses its impact and even its meaning--sometimes even to go so far as provoki...

Re: Lady Bird

Well yeah, but there are two kinds of cynicism, false and true. If the Truth hurts, it's the latter, and I only deal in that--much to the false cynicism of my detractors who can only mumble and sigh. 8-) Haha, ok. I always wanna give the benefit of the doubt. Besides, I thought the gay thread was t...

Re: Movies with great dialogue

One of my all-time favourites S3yon2GyoiM cISYzA36-ZY Now see....SEE, y'all do know good dialogue. It's got irony (everybody talks nice to everybody to rub in the hate), humor, lunge and parry, something above a 3rd grade vocabulary, and a superb--one might even say...delicate (i.e calm and precise...

Re: Lady Bird

Another middling teen girl coming-of-age repeat with a docile father, misguided bitch of a mother, and a couple of completely obvious, irrelevant, dropped into the plot gay threads for a ratings/awards boost. 6/10.

Re: Monty, you terrible cunt!

I grabbed the first three quotes from IMDb, and the rest didn't look any better i wanted something cinematic; non-didactic. it wasn't really in response to you or the original post, nor an attempt to appear obtuse. B66 is a delicately made film—Euro inspired, but without the philosophising that fee...

Re: Ratings--WTF?

So Denzel Washington got a Golden Globe nomination for Roman J. Israel, Esq. So...did I misread Hollywood's reaction? There was nothing to misread, the reviews were there. Then what, I ask, is going on, a change of heart? Possibly, but it happened awfully fast. And of course Lady Bird was nominated ...

Re: Monty, you terrible cunt!

Those quotes actually make me want to watch the film. Mrs Maaxwell has been trying to get me to watch it for years. Plus, he's right about Withnail OK, y'all tryin' to gaslight me, right, but it ain't gonna work. There's no way that's not stupid, except for Gomer fans, Green Acres, Andy of Mayberry...
