    I like the romance subplot of The Thin Red Line. Or that story the guy tells in Saving Private Ryan where a lady with huge boobs lets him look at them, so he could think about 'em when he was nervous in Europe How romantic.


    Some surface level of me wants to say reality TV is the epitome of what the old folks warned us to stay away from, regarding television. But I watch cartoons. How much better are cartoons? The same surface level of me says much, much better. But I wonder.

    I'll go a little further and say that a lot of people simply use the term "romantic comedy" as a pejorative. They don't think of quality films when they think of romantic comedies.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Yes. Just a heads up though, if you don't think a movie about two people walking through various European cities and having interesting conversation can sustain your interest, I'd say it's probably not for you. From what I know about you so far, I think you'd be fine with it.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Here are some romcoms I like, that might not be the lowest common denominator:

    The Importance of Being Earnest

    Much Ado About Nothing

    The Princess Bride

    Arsenic and Old Lace

    Bridget Jones's Diary

    Grosse Pointe Blank

    I love all of those.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I learned recently that John Hughes actually wrote maid in manhattan but used a pseudonym. I haven't seen that movie in a while but I can think of a lot of romcoms way cornier. starring j.lo too.

    You can't beat sweet, murderous, little old ladies.

    I don't know if you've seen Grosse Pointe Blank, but it is full of violence and killing. If you don't hate 80s movies, you might like it.
