    I mfing love Eminence Front. I've gotten loads of heat for that being my favorite Who song. (I do like them in general though.)

    Some of these, for instance the beatles, would probably seem more groundbreaking if we were listening to them when they were new. I love the beatles but since there is so much that followed them that is derivative, they sometimes sound played-out to me. It's that very played-outness that underscores their influence.

    Joining in with Night over Thomas Jefferson and with Chicago.

    Totally disagreeing re: Grave of the Fireflies. Too long, too dull. There's gotta be better movies about the after-effects of the nuclear bombing of Japan.

    More sucky things:
    Classical music (not all of it, just a lot)
    The Dark Knight (technically proficient/awesome... except that I'm given no reason to care about any of the characters, not even the biggest character, Gotham.)
    "Chick Lit"
    Star Wars III- Revenge of the Sith- even worse than I and II combined
    Romanticism (the whole movement and especially Jane Eyre and Frankenstein)
    .. and while we're on it, Magical Realism (sometimes good, usually sucky)
    To Kill a Mockingbird (poor plot development, characters are all cariactures, etc)
    and 1984

    Defending:
    Suhjan Stevens (granted I've only heard Illinoise and I don't know how how OVERrated he is)
    Moulin Rouge (the story is generically sucky, but it's shiny and I like the music)

    See, I see making fun of teenage infutuation as something like... Midsummer's Night Dream- Romeo and Juliet doesn't have that. In fact, doesn't the Prince (or a magistrate or something) give a whole speech at the end about how nobly they died and the families should be brought together?

    I haven't seen Gladiator, but surely it can't be a worse Best Picture winner than Forrest Gump (a movie made from a mixtape and operating on false nostalgia).

    Exactly--the Beatles' influence has so completely saturated everything that came after it that it's nearly impossible for those of us that didn't live through that era to realize just how new and groundbreaking they were when they came out. I love early Beatles stuff especially because they had that raw, live, frenzied sound, instead of the careful-sounding stuff that usually came out of studio recordings. I love John/Paul's harmonies, and I love the deceptively simple lyrics over complex chord structures.

    I freaking love To Kill a Mockingbird. I think it's one of the best books ever written--I marvel at the craft of that book, and it's one of the few books that have ever moved me to tears. I also love 1984.

    Colors sucks for having more than double my score in Mah Jong. How do you DO that? I can't freaking get past level 2!

    Grey's Anatomy sucks, as does Desperate Housewives. Ugh.

    Edited to add:

    *standing ovation*

    I can't for the life of me understand why people love Forrest Gump.

    Also? Sally Field sucks. I hate her little scrunchy face as much as Pink hates Redford.
