I just need him to tell me what his....standards are for movies. Like running time, rating, the combo of the two...whether or not an animated film is actually a movie.

Indubitably. It shall stand this way until the evidence can finally be linked directly, sir.

My clues:

1. His name is crazychris88. Nobody has used "chris" on this thread and become soooo...prominent in our site aside from: chris_sc77. Never forget.

2. He may be back for revenge considering my involvement of calling him out and due to the action of...his exile. Not a clue..but...his motivation perhaps.

3. His remarks on rating for certain films. A chris_sc77 trait. They veer very close to the chris of old.

4. His general manner towards some films and great subjectivity on them.

5. While his name is, I heavily believe, a reference to Kill Bill....it's also worth noting that...it's 88. While our previous chris was w/ 77.

6. Also...that he's crazy.


---------

His tiptoeing of certain aspects has led me to believe that he is in fact the exiled one. BUT....without direct say of rating+ running time....the biggest giveaway...it can not be fully solved...yet. I await anxiously for this information to be revealed.

He HAS asked about ratings but not runtime. I think he's covering his tracks that way.

Remember when we used to ask for IP checks? He's probably covered his tracks that way too.

Crazy? Maybe not so crazy...

I'm sorry that I decided to do a clean play on words this week than past week's rape jokes and racial epithets. Both, ironically, involving George Lucas.

I'll go back to the epithets and slurs next week when Tyler Perry's new movie comes out.

Reese Witherspoon is responsible for this:

"Well look who got beaten with the ugly stick. Bob, is that you? My God, I can't believe such an itty bitty gun could make such a big mess out of someone! You are so ugly Bob! Oh and hey I heard you have one of those poop bags where the shit comes out the side, you're just a big old shitbag aren't you Bob! I hope you think of me every time you shit in that thing motherfucker!"

I can overlook any other short coming of hers due to that film.

Election was one of the many films that made 1999 one of the best years in film history, but I still think she sucks. Hell, I love Pleasantville and Overnight Delivery is a guilty pleasure of mine; I still think she's a talentless hack.

I got dragged to Legally Blonde 2 in theaters by the girl I was dating at the time. Not only did said girl never put out, but that was also two hours of my life that I'm never getting back. Not only that, I discovered a classmate of mine died the moment I got back home from the theater. So may God have mercy on Reese Witherspoon's soul.

Now that I think about it, the only films I can remember watching of hers are Freeway, American Psycho, and the Johnny Cash flick. May have to check out Election.

I should hope so!

Plus, we all know McG's career has sucked since Day One.

The first few minutes of Twilight (not that one) aren't terrible.

I'll second that Election and Pleasantville are two of the best films she's ever done.

My kids eat up anything Ghibli so I'm sure we'll be seeing this soon.
If you have a blu ray or dvd player that can change region codes, you can buy the UK release for ~$26. It's even got a british dub on it.

Glad 'This Means War' tanked, as McG and Michael Bay are everything that is wrong with movies these days. You think these guys would learn from someone like Christopher Nolan that you can make a action/blockbuster, and still have an interesting story and good characters. These guys care about action/CGI, action/CGI.......

I saw Reese Witherspoon on one of the late night shows and she mentioned McG directed the movie, and I knew I wouldn't waste my time with it.

He gets a "forever pass" from me for bringing Nikita (and Maggie Q) to TV.

Re: Weekend Box Office (2/17 - 2/20): This Means War on McG's Career

I just wanna know why for at least 3 weeks Now (!!!) Coriolanus has been doing better or exactly even on a per-screen-average as the Fucking Artist and it hasnt expanded hardly anywhere!!!!And another week where HUgo stays at position 14.
Also I must say I think I may have been the only one who predicted Safe house to be no. 1 this weekend.
Witherspoon has to be the most overpaid actress in the world for her consistently underperforming and massive bomb crappy movies

Ghost Rider 2 made 22 Million. Pretty impressive for 4th place. The budget was also downgraded. I read where Neveldine/Taylor had said that the 70 million was inflated. The final budget came in at 57 million. It's pretty much made half of that, so it may turn a profit at some point.
