  1. Ugh! I hate this movie. Every "joke"(?) is so completely, embarrassingly unfunny and out of place. It's awkward in the worst possible way. A nasty and mean-spirited film to boot, Fargo has entirely one-dimensional characters whose one "humorous"(?) personality trait is beaten to death when it wasn't even funny the first time. After the 10-millionth time, it is simply numbing. Fargo is just awful on every level, and I have no idea how it managed to earn an Oscar nomination for Best Picture.
  2. I can't think of too many ones to consider "underrated", but, in terms of "overrated": Martin Scorsese Steven Spielberg Woody Allen Stanley Kubrick Francis Ford Coppola Stan Brakhage John Waters Ingmar Bergman and several others How do critics determine who to hail as a "brilliant" director? Do they draw names from a hat? I can just see it now: "Today, the card says 'Uwe Boll', so I want all of you to go out and praise Uwe for the cinematic genius that he is."

  3. 1. TCM shows too many modern movies. Reply: They need the damn money, m'kay? 2. I was offended by something on TCM. Reply: Go cry me a river. 3. Why does Ben Mankowitz have to host? Why can't Robert Osborne work 24/7? Reply: Because Robert Osborne is a (76-year-old) human being, and he gets tired after a while. 4. Why does TCM show their logo in the corner of the screen? Reply: Because most channels do. 5. HAY TCM SHOW DIS MOVEE!1!11! Reply: [suggest-a-Movie|http://www.tcm.com/suggestamovie/index/]. It exists for a reason. 6. I don't like this movie that TCM is airing. Reply: See #2. 7. TCM shows too many classic movies. Reply: Go figure.
  4. It's been done before. Several, several times. (On an amusing note, TCMWebAdmin removed the Ingagi poster from one of my posts on the grounds that it "contained nudity".)

  6. Actually, Cimarron *HAS* been released on DVD. Cavalcade and Wings are the only ones that haven't.
  7. It's been discussed before, but I think most would wholeheartedly agree on Cavalcade. What do you think?
  8. Wait a second... My Life as a Dog disturbed you? How? I'm guessing you haven't seen L?olo ?
  9. After spending time on the Internet, I've become impossible to shock. Some of my impressions... Cannibal Holocaust - A poorly-made exploitation film that is far too inept and contrived to be disturbing. In a Glass Cage - I was fully expecting the disturbing, harrowing experience that many people talked about, but was somewhat confused. Sure, the entire theme was horrific, but... now that I think about it... Night Train Murders - The atmosphere and heavy impact got to me. The two teenage girls are utterly sympathetic and believable... and the fact that those two scumbags do their **** and killing with a "high-class" wealthy lady makes it all the more shocking. Most memorable line: "We're only gonna cut her a little", before deflowering one of the girls with a large knife. There is also a man who watches the two girls being degraded, before being "invited" in, having sex with one of the girls, and, later, calling the police anonymously to describe the killers. Pink Flamingos - Absolutely awful amateur trash; a desperate, pathetic cry for attention. Aftermath - A rather poetic and mournful look at the inhumanity of ****; thoughtful and artful. Eraserhead - A dark and subtle experimental film; David Lynch portrays a wonderfully eerie, nightmarish atmosphere where anything can happen. Tetsuo: The Iron Man - An ugly, depressing arthouse film that really wallows in self-indulgence and offers little for the viewer. Wife to Be Sacrificed - Yet another Japanese bondage flick, made with skill, but obviously aimed at the lowest common denominator. Inside - Another example of extreme French horror, this doesn't really offer anything worthwhile, although it was made with skill, and the final cesarean scene is effective.

  10. Oh... maybe that's why I wasn't able to log into my old account? Anyways, it's interesting how, when you ask people on IMDb what the most disturbing movie is, they tell you "Salo, Nekromantik, and Men Behind the Sun". When you ask people here, they name a bunch of Hollywood hits from the 1920s - 1960s.

  13. No, they are not two different beasts. They are the same beast; human evil. Whether it's religion or political ideology, it promotes violence and hatred. It is evil. I don't care if I'm un-PC, because Islam is every bit as evil as National Socialist ideology. "Radical Islam" is simply a consequence of taking the Koran seriously. They both promote "ethnic cleansing" and building a "master race".
