No problem...I really liked LOTR but I wasn't creaming my pants like all my friends were. I will definately be seeing the trilogy in the theatres though.

wtf was that shit about? I've watched it like 3 times and still haven't figured it out. I guess it might help if I watched it in whole and didn't fall asleep.

I agree. I saw some movie in the theatre like last year. I'm pretty sure it had George Clooney in it but I can't find the name of it anywhere. But the beginning was George Clooney robbing a bank and then he got outside and his car wouldn't start, so he got busted. That one put me to sleep. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

in my opinion, traffic was a documentary. bleh. it had potential to be really good, but they just didn't grasp it. though it's been a while since i've seen it, so who knows.

That is 'Out of Sight'. And I love that movie. It was directed by Steven Soderbergh, as was Traffic, so maybe it's Soderbergh movies you don't like.

And really, all of the good views were mostly there because the Terrence Malick hade made a couple really good movies in the past. Critics are like that. They're afraid to admit when someone with a good record fucks up.

No, no.. I've gotten two movies confused. I liked out of sight.. but I guess maybe the movie I saw last year didn't have George Clooney in it.. *shrugs* I'll shut up now.

<font color=#007AAA>Natural Born Killers and Scarface are completely unwatchable. Graveflower is right on the money: Oliver Stone movies are utter shit.

American Beauty is ok but completely over-rated and totally simplistic.

American Pie is terrible. It's sequel manages to be even worse.

Mallrats is terrible. The acting in it is just fucking inexcusable. Jason Lee is plain rancid. The directing is pretty slap-dash as well.

while I personally totally disagree with "Natural Born Killers", I think you couldn't be more on the ball about "Mallrats"

I think Oliver Stone started to lose it with Natural Born Killers, which started a devolving trend that led to the forgettable U-Turn. However, films like JFK, the Doors, and even Wall Street are prefect showcases of his talent.

Further proof that he's completely lost it: he's now doing a documentary on Arafat. I guess he can't do coherent feature films anymore.

<font color=#007AAA>YES! YES! YES! FINALLY! Thanks for reminding me about that one. I couldn't even finish it. All of Kubrik's movies are like that. His arrogance gets in the way of his ability to edit movies. All of his shit (and I do mean shit) is dreadfully long. The Shining is pretty sorry, as far as I'm concerned. That woman who plays the doting wife/mother is just horrible and Jack Nicholson was acting far below his ability.

Speaking of Jack, A Few Good Men is really bad. I wanted to strangle Tom Cruise throughout the movie and I didn't like the fact that Demi Moore was as dumb as Cruise kept telling her. The only thing that made it memorable is Jack. And he was using about two thirds of his talent in that movie. Aaron Sorkin's script was amateurish, although his later work in television (Sports Night and The West Wing) is quite good.
