I don’t think his stuff is cool at all post Pulp Fiction. Reservoir Dogs and PF aside I think Tarantino tries way too hard to be cool and I actually find most of his stuff desperately disappointing.A lot of his stuff is "cool", and he's good at recycling other people's stuff in a way that makes it look original
The only reason you knew what it was about is because you toss off daily into your Murderer of the Day toilet paper. Plus you also lived through it, you insular loud mouth decrepit twat. Dwazza is better than youI didn't like it either...but I knew what it was about.
I looked back at my post in here and I listed it. I remember this being a reason as to why i couldn't get into it myself. I just didn't find the characters interesting/entertaining. Though I think I liked John Goodman in it.or try and write an original movie with interesting characters themselves and see how hard it is.
No matter what harsh words you say the Dude abides.I looked back at my post in here and I listed it. I remember this being a reason as to why i couldn't get into it myself. I just didn't find the characters interesting/entertaining. Though I think I liked John Goodman in it.
Not in my view. Whatever clothes the film may be wearing it is always the usual QT stuff. Forced snappy dialogue, ridiculous OTT blood and groovy overthought soundtrack.Well whatever you think of him, this is just plain wrong
you raised my blood pressure for a few secondsThe Godfather 2: Boooring, and it was really mean of Michael what he did to Fredo
The Shawshank Redemption: Pfff, nice guy locked up and becoming mates with his fellow prisoners, laaame.
Citizen Kane: It's not even in color, who am I supposed to enjoy a movie that's all black and white.
The Dark Knight: It's so fecking obvious Bruce Wayne is Batman. Come on. Also, why did he swallow a speech distortion device.
The Original Star Wars Trilogy: Luke Skywalker is such a whiner and the duel between Anakin in Obi Wan in Revenge of the Sith had way more backflips than the one in A New Hope.
On the other hand, all movies with Dwayne The Rock Johnson are massively underrated. Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw is the greatest movie of all time. It has lots of banter, a hot chick and like, 5 explosions per minute.
I was sure at least 1 person would bite. Guess I laid it on too thick. These threads are always silly though. Mostly because overrated is a very overrated term. My wife hated the Godfather 2, it was too long and boring for her. Doesnt mean it's overrated, just means that Im married to an uncultured barbarian.you raised my blood pressure for a few seconds
I wish I’d not got involved either. Always impossible threads because one persons classic is another’s garbage and vice versa.What did I look in this thread for? Basically every film gets mentioned. I think some people mention them for effect.
And I think we have reached peak contrarian.Fight Club.
I think it's horrific.
All I can say in responses is that its a genuine opinion. I was fecking flabbergasted when I first watched it, which was fairly recently.And I think we have reached peak contrarian.
We've had the box office smashes.
The big budget oscar winners.
The historically pioneering films.
The great director's materpiece.
The best films to not be oscar nominated.
...... Going to chuck in One flew over the cuckoo's nest and call it a day.
Um, that's kinda the point. You're not supposed to be right or wrong. It's more interesting finding out what makes people tick and why they like/dislike something rather than fretting over their opinion.I know but it’s a hopeless subject because ultimately no one is right or wrong.
I'm a big fan of Nolan, but like OleBoiii said, just because I find it overrated doesn't mean I think it's a bad movie. I just don't understand or agree with the many people that rate it as one of the best ever. I don't even think it's Nolan's best. I found the writing to be a bit contrived, and dragged on for too long. I also did not feel much of a connection between Cooper and his kids, which was supposed to be integral to the story.Why not? I mentioned 3 films that I find hard to be in this thread. Dont you rate Christopher Nolan?
Don't worry it wasn't specifically aimed at you, just a bit of fun because we have torpedoed a shed load of excellent (for different reasons) movies. Of course we are each entitled to an opinion and we are all wired slightly different. Saying that I think some of these suggestions are absurd especially when a list is compiled.All I can say in responses is that its a genuine opinion. I was fecking flabbergasted when I first watched it, which was fairly recently.
When the ending came and we see clips of him like beating himself up in the car park, people somehow thinking that's enticing and getting involved and ultimately an entire fight club exists as a result of his schizophrenia.. It's so daft!
Maybe I've interpreted the whole movie wrong. It's possible.
