    I agree on Unbreakable too, You didnt think it was retarded plot twist? aliens that melted when touched with water would invade a water planet? to each his own.


    Though I thought his last movie Devil(not sure thats the name lol) was pretty good.

    Anything by Michael Moore.
    I have tried to watch all of his mockumentaries and have never gotten more than about 20 minutes before the WTF factor takes over and I can't watch any more.

    I love that movie.

    I am still mad at Christopher Nolan for Memento. I haven't even STARTED to get mad at him for Inception. I'll get to it, but damn, his non-Batman movies force a sister to think and I didn't come to the movies for that.
    ;)

    Kidding. :p

    Why would man colonize Australia? So much of that continent is extremely deadly to man, but yet we did.

    Planets with abundant life probably aren't that easy to find out there. I'd imagine if you need the resources off of it badly enough, you'll take the risks.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    "The Thin Red Line", one of the few movies I actually walked out of the theater on. It swear half that movie was about some chick's window curtains blowing in the wind. I was so very disappointed.

    Really, the only movies I have trouble following are movies where the writer or director tries to be artsy or abstract that they forget that a story is supposed to take place. Movies that just do dumb nonsensical, like make explosion noises in space, or have a guy completely explode into a million pieces when shot by a .223 or 9mm I can deal with.

    Then there are movies that strike a good balance, like the later Resident Evil movies, especially Apocalypse and Afterlife. There are a lot of parts of those movies that don't make much sense, and aren't spelled out for you, but you get the feeling that there are things in motion behind the scenes. (Besides, Milla Jovovich can do no wrong.)
    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."

    Gods and Generals was one of the few it turned off and will refuse to watch. The purely pathetic acting and story telling was worse than a C movie, IMHO
