I'm not sure how much I can say in response to why particular movie cause George to lose his mind without risking banishment. I don't actually need to specify the reason I have come to see for each particular one, since i think it is the same in most cases, which is that when someone has such an incredibly, well, um, "established", opinion of how things should be, it is threatening when something challenges that opinion. Nothing states his opinion better than the quote in his sig..."Movies should be like amusement parks. People should go to them to have fun." He also seems to bear remarkable, permanent grudges against anyone who ever performed in a role, made a movie, said something or wore a tie he dislikes. I will say this, I am pleasantly (and extremely) surprised that George has agreed to participate in this tourney. Les Enfants du Paradis - Sure, it's long-winded, but it's also enjoyable to explore and just look at. I'm not as big a fan of it as most, but I've only seen it once. Why does George hate it? Probably because it's 3 hours and French. Mulholland Drive - Lynch's most accessible? If you say so. Also only seen it once, and it didn't do all that much for me. Well, except for the scene. Still, I have it and will give it another try some day. Why does George hate it? It's unconventional and nonlinear and doesn't provide a nice, simple "answer". Thelma and Louise - As road movies go, it's above average. Plus, how many people have never wanted to just drive off a fucking cliff? Why does George hate it? I have no idea. Maybe he wants to drive off a cliff and isn't willing to admit it. Don't read anything into that. A Room with a View - A wonderful literary adaptation, even if Helena and particularly Julian Sands are rather flat. Denholm Elliott gives one of the greatest comedic performances of all time and Daniel Day Lewis does his best ever. Why does George hate this? Apparently the rest of us missed the memo that Merchant/Ivory were the worst filmmakers in history. My guess is, they did something at some point in one of their movies that rendered anything they ever did as unbearable. Please realize, this entire post is made with tongue planted firmly in cheek. I am not trying to annoy anyone.
