ghouck,

Like, a long time ago, like, I knew some shallow people who were, like, really into Woody Allen and stuff.  This was, like, way before he like lost his mind and married his adoptive daughter and stuff. They couldn't fathom how anyone (IE: me) didn't care about the man, his movies, or talking about the man and his movies.  Then again they also used the words "like" and "stuff" a lot when they talked, which was almost as irritating and annoying as watching a Woody Allen movie.   Wink

So, like, don't sweat it man.  Just, you know, go with like the flow, and stuff, and don't worry about, like, you know, stuff that people say.

Um, did you just say that anyone who ever liked a Woody Allen movie is shallow and stupid?

He was funny back in the early days. Not saying everybody has to have the same taste in humor, but if I'm one of those people who happened to like "Bananas", "Take the Money and Run", "Play it Again, Sam", "Sleeper" or "Annie Hall" I think I object to being told that makes me shallow.

Of course Allen himself made much the same accusation. We went to see one of his artsy, un-funny films, "Stardust Memories" when that first came out. A repeating line in that movie was "I liked your earlier, funny stuff", and he was obviously making fun of anybody who ever said that to him. So sue me. I liked his earlier, funny stuff.

I've never seen the movie Blade Runner.

My mother never saw A Christmas Story, the one that gets rerun for 24 straight hours every Christmas.  I promptly yelled at her for it.

well, happy, now's a good time. the 2 disc edition of blade runner that came out last year was excellent.

similar to your mom not having seen a christmas story, a co-worker of mine recently admitted that she'd never seen the goonies. we were all shocked.

Must be a generational thing. My kid made me watch it last Christmas, when I admitted that I'd not only never seen it, I'd never heard of it.

i'm sorry, did i just hear something? it sounded like a nit being picked.

seriously, dude. methinks you doth protest too much.

No, there's a huge difference between the two. You complain that I protest? Who twisted your arm and made you respond?

Sorry you got all offended by someone that doesn't share your love for a movie, but you implied dishonesty on the part of people that don't agree with you. What more did you expect?

While I like the movie, I think it being aired for 24 straight hours is a bit excessive.

Thing is, I'm not really a Harrison Ford fan.  At all.  I hear good things about the movie though.  Don't know if I'd buy the dvd, but if I could rent it, maybe.

Not especially, to tell the truth. I felt like I was watching a sitcom past its prime, mugging and lame attempts at humor replacing actual jokes or originality.

But one thing I've learned in online newsgroups, people get really defensive about their sense of humor (see my above bristling about Woody Allen), so I'm not going to argue with you about whether it is or isn't an entertaining movie.

Dang!!

Taste be a funny old thing, wot? 

I love love LOVE "Stardust Memories", it being the one time Allen left ol' Bergman alone, and went after Fellini -- maybe if you're a fan of "La Strada" or "La Dolce Vita" or "8 1/2" you can enjoy "Stardust Memories" more -- I dunno --

I enjoy Woody Allen, and find his attempts to become a Serious Film-maker to be laudable, even when they fail.  I certainly enjoy all the early ones schmedrick mentions, but I also like things like "Cassandra's Dream" and "Zelig" and even "Shadows and Fog" --

Seriously, I wish people who've given up on Woody Allen would at least look at "Cassandra's Dream"  -- his most recent film -- when it comes to the dollar-rental store.  Very tragic small Irish film that I believe would've done better had Allen's name not been on it.

I also find I like "A Christmas Story" the more times I see it, so I think this is a film to see more than once, like "It's a Wonderful Life" -- yes, it has that cheap sit-com veneer over it, but there are actually nuances that reveal themselves over repeated viewings.  In many ways it evokes David Sedaris, and I don't just mean the nasty elves --

Back to confessions:  I have never seen a Godzilla vs. Gamera movie, and I own 2 of them!  2 VHS presents from a year ago, and there they still sit . . . I can see the fanged turtle on the cover . . . when will the shoe fall? . ..

I've never seen THE GOONIES.  Frankly, I'm shocked that anyone would be shocked someone hadn't seen it.  It came out when I was 17, so it wasn't exactly a "cool" movie among my peer group.  Maybe it's only surprising if someone in a specific age range has never seen it?

Reverent, I think the implication is that at one time everyone would rush out and see ANY Speilberg movie simply because he was in vogue -- Even I ended up seeing The Goonies as a young adult in my 20's or 30's -- whenever it came out -- because I was hypnotized by the Speilberg ouvre, as were so many around me.  And at least as many who professed to rabidly hate him, but went to all his films anyway to feed that hatred.  These days I'm more about Michael Donough.

good point, exactly. to me, it's a bit unusual for someone between 25 and 35 to have not seen the goonies, but as we're learning here, everyone has different spheres of interest, so some things are bound to slip past people.

I can see why people may not like it.  Funny thing is, I hate sitcoms, but loved the movie.

I liked it, but am not one of those who'd sit there and bark about why a person should like something or not, just cause I like it.  Different strokes to move the world, so to speak. Wink
