    Me too. The pseudo-history is maddening.

    The South Park parody is actually much better.

    I liked it.

    Shit was so cash.
    I got that feeling from watching A l'interieur . I was like YES! KILL THAT FUCKING BITCH!

    Never bothered to see 300, in any case Im sure the 1962 version is much better.

    But you know what is great pseudo-history? Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. I can't get enough of that movie.

    We're supposed to be puking though...anything involving infestations of massive insects or spiders freaks me out. I can watch horror flicks full of gore with people dismembering each other all day long, but throw a giant cockroach at me and I will become very upset.

    Speaking of pseudo-history I got the feeling that 300 is also part of that attempt to trace a democratic "western" civilization stretching back to Athens and counterpose it to oriental stagnation and "despotism". has no historical basis but that doesn't stop them.
    "Of course we spent our money in the good times. That's what you're supposed to do in good times! You can't save money in the good times. Then they wouldn't be good times, they'd be 'preparation for the bad times' times."

    "Every country in the world owes money. Everyone. So heere's what I dont get: who do they all owe it to, and why don't we just kill the bastard and relax?"

    Sparta, not Athens. Besides pointing to Sparta as a model for Republican inspiration goes back to the when this country was founded, and was a theme of the Enlightenment in general - especially with Rousseau.

    "Pineapple Express." There wasn't a single thing in that movie that made me laugh, at all. I suppose this is one of those films that gives people an excuse to get high and then watch it. However, one would be much better off renting an actual high-calibre film and then getting high and watching it than renting this POS. (If one is into such things that is.)

    "Strange Wilderness." There was a single lol moment in the film for me. It was when they got high off the fumes in the RV and were partying. It was just silly really though. The rest of the film was decidedly unfunny and had no plot or characters. A waste of film, unfortunately.

    Whatchoo talking bout Willis!
    I loved Pineapple Express.
    Maybe if you have some friends who are like the guys in the movie its easier "to get". Or maybe its INTP humor (I wasn't even stoned when I watched it and loved it). Oh well, different strokes different folks.

    Oh geez.. lots of them. I'm a tough movie critic. My "terrible movie" list is way longer than good ones.

    To name a few...

    Freedomland
    The Grudge
    28 days later
    Saw II
    (All four of these movies had major plot flaws where if you took out one tiny factor there wouldn't have even beena plot!! There are lots of popular movies with this problem.)
    There was also one movie a while back about running from the darkness, like "don't go in the dark" or something that was supposed to be a thriller. There was no plot except that people had to stay out of the dark or else some gorey creature would jump out at them and the darkness kept following them everywhere they went.)

    Tommyboy
    Talladega Nights
    That other one with Will Ferrell where he goes streakng through the quads that everyone likes. The name escapes me.
    Pretty much anything else with Will Ferrell
    The Ring
    Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
    Most chick flicks.. (You might as well just watch the trailor online rather than wasting 9 bucks to see the trailor dragged out for an hour and a half.. I don't see any difference between the trailors and the chick flicks themselves...)
    Unbreakable. wtf?
    Shrek.

    This thread is going to get me all worked up !
