You may have a point in the comparison to "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner". But I remain convinced that a large portion of the movie's acclaim was politically rather than artistically motivated. You only need look at the last ten years' worth of Best Documentary winners to know that this happens.
I was surprised I liked it as much as I did, considering I don't find homosexual stories very appealing at all.
^ P.S I love you xD
aaaargh gerard butlers stereotypical irish accent *shakes fist* >:[
I would just like to clarify that IRISH PEOPLE DO NOT SOUND LIKE THAT!!!
You must feel nauseated watching a lot of American cinema and TV, then. It's funny, but no one in my (American) family can seem to tell when someone's accent is or is supposed to be Scottish or Irish (or even English sometimes) /reinforcing stereotypes. Unless, of course, they are carrying bagpipes, wearing copious amounts of green, etc. And they don't care most of the time. I'm guessing that many American audiences have similar attitudes. :rolli:
Anywho, i'd rather gauge my own eyes out than watch The Cube or Mona Lisa Smile again.
Oh and the matrix and lord of the rings *Coma* xD
I fell asleep in the cinema during LTR
I completely agree about LOTR - at least for the last installment. It was excuciating to sit through the poorly edited last 20 minutes of the film. I wanted out of the theater, too.
I never saw it, but the previews looked atrocious. I was thinking, "Surely no one is going to want to SEE that, right?" And then when I saw that it was the feel-good-Mom-movie-of-the-year, it merely doubled my resolve not to see it.
Haha.. I'm a guy, but I enjoyed it. I suppose it's a chick flick? But I thought the parts with old guy were great.
A guy who can appreciate a chick flick seems to be in high demand.
I'm a chick who enjoys romantic stories, but it didn't speak to me at all. I liked Shakespeare in Love and a lot of people thought that was overrated. Also it bugged, because I know someone who cared for a partner who died of Alzheimer's and its the most profound act of love I have seen but it didn't look like that movie.
