Dune (1984) was cool.

Actually, I agree. David Lynch has a style of filming that is uniquely his own. And I thought the knifefights between Kyle MacLachlan and Patrick Stewart and between Kyle MacLachlan and Sting were pretty cool, too. And after this one and the 2000 TV miniseries, there's a 3rd attempt upcoming to convert Herbert's book into film.

I enjoyed Halloween, the remake by Rob Zombie. People disliked it for various reasons.

It's far from perfect, but as far as remakes go, it's enjoyable in a weird way. And I dug some of the casting choices: Malcolm MacDowell, Danny Trejo, Brad Dourif.

There's also a documentary out now about Alejandro Jodorowsky's aborted attempt to film the book in the 1970s.

I read somewhere that George Lucas ripped off a lot of ideas from that pre-production of the aborted Dune (197?) movie and included them in his Star Wars (1977) film, which included the Tatooine desert dune setting, lightsabers instead of force shields during the knife fights, the Empire instead of House Harkonnen, Luke Skywalker and the Force instead of Muad'Dib and the Weirding Way, etc.

The Dark Knight Rises was abysmal. It completely negates the message of the previous film and has the most asinine romantic plot element in the history of cinema.

"What if I told you Rachael chose Dent?"
"I would HATE YOOOOOU! ~sob~, get out of my life forever adoptive father and loyal ally!"
"Okay, but stop being Batman"

the rest of the crapfest happens, yadda yadda etc.

"Hello mysterious thief woman I've known for a few weeks tops, I love you and want to stop being Batman for you. In fact, you make me forget the last two women in my life, one just died, it looked stupid, and the other wasn't even into me and I threw out my most loyal friend because of it, but I love you so much, my back hurts"

The whole Nolan Batman trilogy was horrible.  

Let's look at the development of our hero.  

1st movie:  "I have no clue how to be Batman!  Somebody please tell me what to do!"

2nd Movie:  "Okay.  I'm kinda tired of being Batman now."

3rd movie:  "I quit being Batman...okay fine.  I'll be Batman one more time... then I'll quit being Batman AND quit being Bruce Wayne in order to run off with a felon who I barely know that tried to rob me blind earlier."

or if you prefer, "When I was a child, I dedicated my life to fighting crime to avenge my parents death, but it turns out that fighting crime is hard and I got hurt a bit so I quit."

Joss Whedon is a mediocre writer at best.

ARCHER is not funny.

Im with the previous posters about Nolan's Crapman. He fights crime for a year, disappears then returns to "die".   Idiocy...plain and simple.

I hate MMO video games with a passion.  I want to gouge my eyes out every time I hear about a new one. 

I enjoy cigars and pipes and feel more people should enjoy them in moderation.

I don't like many movies that receive a lot of critical acclaim.  I would like to but I find myself gravitating towards things that receive much less praise.  I watch a movie to have fun mostly and am not always interested in a deep message or symbolism. 

I hate people that don't have refined tastes.  I can't enjoy speaking to people that don't want to expand their tastes or to try something that is hearty and filling.  Case in point discussing bread with someone.  Hate white prefer dark richer grainy breads not the basic white bread. 

Maybe I should have put that into the Grind my Gears topic.

I hate Disneyworld and liken it to hell on earth.   I may have mentioned that before.

Always worth mentioning again: I don't watch TV. I haven't sat down to watch TV in over ten years. I don't care about TV shows, talk shows, reality shows, the latest series and what not. And I absolutely despise TV commercials.

I was watching TV the other day and I just turned the damned thing off.  Between the derogatory "public service" commercials and the fact that I'm watching some show I've seen before, which is being over-dramatized by the narrator to the point where all of civilization will presumably fall into ruin if these dolts don't get this bearing on this motor replaced by the end of the day, but I'm not even watching it because I'm being told to sue for mesothelioma for the eight trillionth time...enough.
