    I actually agree with 3 and 13. BORK might as well not have been named after the event, it had so little to do with actual historical events. As for the Godfather, I found it uninspired and uninterested in the characters' respective evolutions. I'm not a fan of the mobster genre, so that weighs heavily against it.
    Other than that, I got a kick out of the rest of them.

    Thanks, Joel...that was a riot.
    I especially love the criticisms of films solely because they are in black & white. What imbeciles.

    Star Wars is my favorite movie of all time, but it's little kids like that that give people, who love the movie for what it really is, a bad name. Bridge on the River Kwai had a rather intelligent insight (I love the movie, but it was too much like Hogan's Heroes, which I'm not saying Hogan's Heroes was bad, but BOTR just seemed sugar coated). The LOA critique was pretty funny albeit untrue by my standards (how can blowing up trains not be action packed? It's a David Lean trademark [​IMG] ).

    I agree about the "black and white" comment...I like how they say it makes the film look "dated" ...hmmm, wonder way?

    I suppose if someone were to cull our review threads, they could find a quote or two out of context that would make us sound pretty stupid too. Probably even a few with my name on them.... [​IMG]
