In my opinion part II:

1. Christians do more to get Hospitals and other needed services into assbakwards countries than anyone else. And they still get kicked in the butt for doing good.

2. The movie "Ghostbusters" is way overrated.

3. CLINTON REALLY DIDN'T DO SHYTE FOR BLACKS

Admittedly, you are correct.

That The English Patient is one of the best films ever made is a FACT, not an opinion.

My apologies...

What was uptight about his confident womanizer role in Bridgit Jones's Diary? How about his role as a 19th century Polish composer in Impromptu?

Let me break up this discussion by saying that Halle Berry is not hot.

Wrestling should not be in the sports section, but instead moved to the soap opera for rednecks section

The first half of Super Troopers is some of the best comedy filmed in the last ten years. It was hilarious. Who cares if the movie itself was too long. The first half of that movie contained moments of comic genius.

This is the best thread ever.


How's that for an unpopular opinion?

I highly disagree... I didn't think the movie was too long.

In my opinion, they temper their kindhearted quality with missionaryism (real word?) too much and their Christianity 'shows through' too much. People might feel happy they are getting help but they are also ashamed at having gotten that help from people who seem to think of themselves as much superior. THAT is why they get their butt kicked. I've seen it for myself from both ends;

1) From this day forward the United States should directly target civilian areas in any war it has with another country. In addition, any land which the US conquers, should remain US territory while the former inhabitants should be sent packing for another place to live out the remainder of their miserable lives.

2) All illegal aliens should be rounded up and forced to “walk” or “swim” back to the dump of a country from which they invaded the US.

3) The US should build a wall along the Mexican border and shoot to kill (without warning) any person invading under the name “illegal alien”.

4) Let’s face it……….Canada only looks like an independent country, while it’s really a “protectorate” of the US.

5) Strip US citizenship from any person who can’t or refuses to speak English in this country. There should be no more “press one for English” or various languages put on election ballots.

6) If a person is too dumb to know how to vote (see Dade County Florida, Democrats), they shouldn’t have the right to vote.

7) Hillary Clinton should have the word “Carpetbagger” tattooed on her forehead.

8) A doctor who was removed from the American Medical Association for malpractice should turn Billy Clinton into a “Castrati”.

9) Al Sharpton should be imprisoned for impersonating a human. (Even though it’s a very poor imitation) People should be paid $1.00 out of Sharpton’s graft filled bank accounts every time they are subjected to his belching, more commonly known as his trying to speak. An additional $2.00 fine should be paid by him each time a person is faced with the horror of seeing his image on TV or in the newspapers.

10) Jessie Jackson should pay a tariff for every illegitimate child he has both inside and outside the US. This tariff should not be paid by the corporations from which he routinely extorts money, or from the “common” bank account which he shares with his phony “charity / political shakedown” organization. Rather it should come from his own pocket, which is probably not possible, since the last legitimate job he had was as a waiter, when he spit in the food of white customers.

In my opinion Elaine Benes was right.

As bad as it must be I'd rather see Sack Lunch than suffer through "That English Patient Movie" again.

I know it's not an unpopular opinion but damn, Seinfeld was great.

I was in high school when that episode aired, and from that point on, every time I brown-bagged my lunch (which was every day), I referred to it as a "sack lunch."

I mean, Dabney Coleman was in the damn movie; how could it not be great?

Eric Clapton is NOT a great guitar player... by any measure.

The Eagles “Hell Freezes Over” concert is BORING!

So is Fleetwood Mac’s “The Dance”.
