    Nobody really thinks James Fenimore Cooper was good, do they?

    One would assume 'yes' but one would be wrong. Grossly wrong.

    Have you ever read Mark Twain's hilarious diatribes against Cooper? I laughed so hard I cried.

    SO agree with Tyler Perry. Good call, FM. He doesn't even do that schtick as well as Martin Lawrence. What does THAT say about him?

    I also wish to defend the honor of Citizen Kane. I think it's one of those movies that's every bit as good as its reputation proclaims it to be. Admittedly, not everyone likes the same thing. Part of what makes it a great movie is the fact that Welles did some groundbreaking camera angles and directing choices that changed cinema thereafter. I watched a movie called RKO 281, about Welles and how he made that movie, and then immediately afterward attended a showing of CK on the big screen in NYC. (I think it was an HBO-made thing, with Liev Scrieber.) First of all, it's a completely different movie when you see it as it's meant to be seen. It completely envelops you, because of the mood he creates right from the beginning. But having some insight into the things that he did that no one else had done before him, and the things he had to fight to do to even get the movie made? It really tranforms the experience. I'm not saying you have to like it, but it doesn't suck.

    You know, it took me 2 or 3 watches before I really appreciated Citizen Kane. Now I agree that it's genius (although it would not crack my Top 5 Greatest American Films; Top 10, yes). I actually don't think it matters as much to see it on the big screen, though, since it was shot in 1.33:1. It's in its normal aspect ratio on TV. I did see it on the big screen once, and it was a great experience, but mostly for the tremendous sound in a brand-new theater.

    I can totally see why some people hate Sin City, even though I liked it.

    Ooh, The Godfather, ouch. Methinks The Godfather made you think of The Doggfather, hence Snoop Dogg.
