    Pulp fiction is dumb. People say they like it so they appear sophisticated and witty.

    I think you had to put such a long preface because people freak out over contrary opinions. Personally I like hearing well thought out contrary opinions as it gives me another perspective and allows me to contemplate why I hold my own opinions.

      Agree, it's definitely overhyped IMO. I'll probably get a lot of hate for this, but I think I am Sam is a much better movie.

    For me its Avatar. Its clichè, dumb and simple plot, bland characters, almost zero character development.
    But for some reason people like it

      Only movie I've ever seen in 3D and it sucked. Only saw it once, but that was enough. I just found it long and tedious.

    Hate Big Lebowski, felt Titanic was a love story that just happened to be on a boat, despise anything Shyamalan has put out...
    Except for Dark Knight, Donnie Darko, Christmas Story, and Pulp Fiction, I do not like the other 6.

    After you know the twist to the 6th sense the movie gets slower in my opinion.
    The same with titanic. It was beautifully filmed and great special effects but the story was slow.
    You said gremlins and die hard for christmas. Where was lethal weapon?

    do you know which movie epythomizes the feeling of this video? drive, with ryan gosling. there was this case that a woman tried to sue the company that made it for false advertizing because the actual movie had almost nothing to do with the trailer which basically just showed the chase scenes.

    I LOVE #1, but I reallllly think smoking the mary is the key.....gosh I hate to sound so cliche, and it's not that the devils lettuce magically makes bad things awesome like it is so popularly portrayed, it's just that certain things....connect better. I guess it's easier to identify with The Dude and what he's all about when you're buzzed, and the dialogue kills me, just like your friends I LOL at every line like it has grown funnier over time, like a fine wine. I love you too though James, I respect your opinions. Also, I agree with Reservoir being better than Pulp Fiction as a film. It seems easier to control the story/realism because it's focused. Pulp Fiction is a better experience though, it's wackier and more quotable. I love Kill Bill the best!!

    Hi James, you said you'd be interested to hear the perspective of someone who doesn't like STAR WARS. Okay, here I am:
    I guess I feel about STAR WARS the same way you feel about some of the movies on your list: I respect it for being a game-changer in Hollywood history and how blockbusters and special FX were made. I think the Original Trilogy are a fun and entertaining set of adventure B-movies. But I wish the franchise had ended in 1983. The SW franchise has since been worshipped and oversaturated to the point of absurdity, with people acting as if these are the most deep and profound movies in history. The movies all suffer from stilted dialog, corny jokes, and campy moments. Even EMPIRE, the best in the series, has its share of all three of these flaws.
    Basically, I don't think any SW movie has been good since the Original Trilogy. And as for the Original Trilogy, I think they're fun adventure movies made for the kid in everyone, but that's all they are. They're not great works of art, and they were never trying to be.

    I recently watched Pulp Fiction and while I liked it, it is most definitely overrated. I thought it was like a 7/10 max. People saying it's the best film of all time seriously need to watch it again and actually analyse the film. The film has a real lack of depth which it masks by splitting the film into 4 parts in random order and having snappy dialogue. I guarantee if the film played in the right order, it wouldn't be so well loved.

    The one movie I truly didn't care for is The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I watched it with an open mind and saw why people love it. I tried to like it and get into it, but I just couldn't. Other people may love this movie, but I just didn't like it.

    The Matrix Is rated so high because it forces you to really reflect on society we live in (corny but its true)
    it was a si-fi concept/world with a underlying message.

    Fuck you for not loving The Big Lebowski. The list was okay as long as I agreed with you, or that I didn't have a strong opinion on it, but disrespecting TBL by not praising it as the best movie ever made? Burn in hell mother fucker.

  • ecabernet
    ecabernet 8 days ago

    Kinda agree on The Big Lebowski. I have never felt the urge to watch it again. Seen it a few times and it is alright. Never had any big laughs. Here is one on my list: Inception. I saw it at the movies, I didnt miss a beat or get confused. I have seen it again, and I have seen 10+ people explain it. I really didnt miss anything. This is not a "I am very smart comment". I am very average. And if I am being 100% honest, Saving Private Ryan is also on my list. The start is amazing. But after they start walking.. Oh jesus fuck me.. While I am digging myself a new grave, anything Tarantino has made since Kill Bill vol 2.

    The reason people love the matrix is because we can relate to the world being so wrong it hurts. Also it was so well done it's really not even fathomable.

  • Aristophanes

    Also, the reason the matrix was so popular had less to do with the special effects as it was French post-structuralist philosophy, condensed into a consumer friendly story, making it appear more "deep" than it really was.

    My friend got me to watch Donnie darko, told me I'd love it because I study philosophy. Ironically, that might be the reason I thought it was utter garbage.

    The Lord of the Rings live-action films from the early 2000's. I don't think it was a bad set of stories written by Tolkien. However, I was at 2 showings(my sister's were obsessed with the movies at that time) in 2001 and I remember walking out and going to another movie. I did once watch the full 3-hours of one of the three movies. To me, it would have been great as an HBO or ShowTime mini-series. The movies were over-produced, over-rated, and on a side-note...Peter Jackson was better off with movies like: Dead Alive and Bad Taste.
