Personally, I liked the university. They gave us money and facilities, we didn't have to produce anything! You've never been out of college! You don't know what it's like out there! I've *worked* in the private sector. They expect *results*.

That line always kills me because it is so true.

As a kid I didn't understand that line but it's pretty funny.

"You can keep the 5 dollars!" also had me laughin.

"Jeanine... sorry 'bout the bug eyes. I'll be in my office..."

The delivery of that line (and the entire exchange before it) slays me. Every single time.

Dr Ray Stantz:  [gets out] Everybody can relax, I found the car. Needs some suspension work and shocks. Brakes, brake pads, lining, steering box, transmission, rear-end.
Dr. Peter Venkman:  How much?
Dr Ray Stantz:  Only $4800.
[Venkman looks shocked]
Dr Ray Stantz:  Also new rings, mufflers, a little wiring...

Janine: You're very handy, I can tell. I bet you like to read a lot, too.
Egon: Print is dead.
Janine: Oh, that's very fascinating to me. I read a lot myself. Some people think I'm too intellectual but I think it's a fabulous way to spend your spare time. I also play raquetball. Do you have any hobbies?
Egon: I collect spores, molds, and fungus.

I love this movie.

Re: Movies you hate that everyone around you loves

Gladiator is always the movie that pops into my mind when confronted with this question. It was awful when I saw it on opening night and it hasn't aged any better. I can't believe anyone that loved a movie like Ben-Hur or Spartacus could think Gladiator was anything but modern dreck papered over with a big FX budget.

While I didn't hate it, I wasn't enthralled with A Beautiful Mind.

Hate is probably too strong a word for all of those movies, but a lot of movies I truly hate don't seem to get a lot of love from too many people.

Hated that pile of garbage!

Re: Movies you hate that everyone around you loves

Another vote for "No Country for Old Men". OVERRATED with a capital "O". It was basically a non-SF version of "The Terminator"








...which poses the question: will Harlan Ellison go after the Coen Bros down the road?

Blade Runner bored me to tears. I also despise Slumdog Millionaire, which I consider trite and pretentious shit.

Re: Movies you hate that everyone around you loves

Saving Ryan's Privates - started out good and devolved into smegma
Avatard - it came across like a film project from a class to utilize every imaginable cliche possible
The Dark Knight - I actually don't hate it as I have never seen it but what the hell

Avatar. Visually stunning but much too cliche.

Re: Movies you hate that everyone around you loves

Yeah, Blade Runner was pretty boring. I heard so much great stuff about it, and I assumed that it would have had a little more action, I guess from "Runner" being in there.

Ridley Scott said that they were trying to portray the future in a casual way, because everything looks worn in, but when you see the cars fly up for the first time, the music seems to be saying, "look, what a miracle of technology this is. How beautiful."

I didn't like Harrison Ford's character forcing himself on the replicant either.

Unforgiven I can't understand how it got an Academy Award. It was like a typical western, except maybe more violent. In the end, the guy's like a superhero who still ends up killing all the bad guys. I've read that it decontructed the genre, but I didn't see that in the film.

Gene Hackman (The Sheriff) is the bad guy. Clint Eatwood (The murderer of women & children) is the good guy.

Re: Movies you hate that everyone around you loves

I guess I have to see it again, because I didn't remember that Eastwood's character did those things.

So Eastwood was a reformed bandit, who took this job for $$$, which was about avenging a disfigured prostitute? It seemed pretty typical of Hollywood films at the time. The action hero who can kill everyone, and walk away into the sunset.

I thought the one thing that was interesting was how in the story, you could kind of see things weren't completely black and white, like how the friends of the woman exaggerated her disfigurement, and how the sheriff obviously didn't want paid murderers in town, but Hackman might as well been Dr. Doom.

I heart you guys

I loathe that grotesque and repulsively insulting representation of Indian culture.

It was PC Hollywood's attempt at patting itself on the back for "making movies about strange brown people". Without any attempt at substantial, meaningful content. Horrible.

I didn't think Slumdog Millionaire was bad. It's by no means a great movie. But we enjoyed it.

It wasn't as insulting as Avatar, where the white man learns an entire (blue standing in for brown) culture in three months, and then shows the ignorant savages how to tame a dragon, woo the princess, and win the big war.

It takes the time to say that most of the exploits by the "heroes of the old west" was bullshit made up by penny novel writers. It explains that most old west shootings were done by angry drunks who shot at their victims from less than 5 feet away and often shot their victims in the back or shot unarmed men. It shows that most "noble sherrifs who clean up the town" were really a bunch of strong-arm ball busters whose idea of "cleaning up" was brutalizing or killing everyone that even looked like they were up to trouble.

Now the truth is that there were many earilier westerns that said these things, but by 1992 no one had said it for a while.

The Hangover
Napolean Dynamite

I do NOT understand the appeal of these two movies. I didn't laugh ONE time in the Hangover.
