  3. Why does everyone make a big deal of Jean Cocteau's 1946 version of Beauty and the Beast ? It's bad. Really bad. Choppy, inept, unbelievable, unsatisfying, uninteresting, poorly acted... and all-around bad. I guess people just like to see a "non-Disney" French version of the classic tale.
  4. It's amazing how people with absolutely no (and I truly mean *NO* ) talent can become huge moneymakers in Hollywood. No, I'm not just talking about "Internet celebrities" who become famous by making fools of themselves, and I'm not just talking about MTV/reality show "stars" who become famous by eating their own vomit. Take a look at Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer - the duo who make millions with their "spoof" movie excretions, which consist entirely of amateurish renditions of popular films/events, with **** and poop thrown in. One of the saddest things about America is that, if you kee
  5. @finance - Some Like It Hot was really dated, predictable, and unfunny. It's basically just an excuse for Marilyn Monroe to parade around in skimpy clothing. @patful - Nice try, but I'm not really named after that. To be honest, I've never even seen it - I'm waiting for the 210-minute version to be released.

Annie Hall, Manhattan, The Godfather, Fargo, Chinatown, The Philadelphia Story, Spirited Away, 4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days, Wings of Desire, Woman in the Dunes, Yojimbo, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Mean Streets, Schindler's List, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jaws, Gandhi, Atlantic City, Persona, Cries and Whispers, The Last Picture Show, Cabaret, All That Jazz, American Graffiti, Barry Lyndon, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, Apocalypse Now, Some Like It Hot, The Silence of the Lambs, Unforgiven, The Shawshank Redemption, Easy Rider, M

  8. There is no such thing as "containing" a virus in the 21st century. With people moving across the world at a rapid rate, encountering millions of people every day, 1 infected person can infect the entire world in a matter of days... or less.
  9. But Schindler's List pretends like it knows Schindler's motives. It doesn't, but it refuses to admit so. The psuedo-sentimentality has the opposite effect of seeming icy and cold. It's absolutely artificial from start to finish.
  10. While E.T. works as poignant family entertainment, Schindler's List comes off as a particularly contrived Hollywood attempt to reel in the Oscar and make as much money as possible. They didn't want to offer any insight into the Holocaust or Oskar Schindler, they just wanted to make a blockbuster hit. And that is unforgivable. It was originally going to be directed by Martin Scorsese (I'm certainly no fan of him either), but he felt it needed to be directed by someone Jewish, so he turned it over to Spielberg. Spielberg is pretty much responsible for making Hollywood the shallow, cy
  11. Cashing in on a scam - sounds like Hollywood to me. P.S. Madoff was brilliant, to be honest. I mean, he was scamming people for HOW long before his sons found out?
  12. I know. You aren't allowed to criticize this movie. Anyone who does is either an anti-Semite, a stupid teenybopper, or someone who's just trying to be oppositional. Well, guess what? I don't love this movie. Here's why: 1. It's choppy, kitschy, and calculated Hollywood product. 2. It's shallow and one-dimensional. 3. For the entire movie, we get nothing but cynicism and pessimism, and then - right out of nowhere - positivity and joy. Really uncomfortable. 4. No attempt to show the human sides of *ANY* Nazis. They are all paper-cutout maniacs. 5. No insight into the Holocaust or
