    You don't get The Big Lebowski because you are a FUC... NIHILIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jesús Javier Aguilar Candia

    i love when someone uses the "you just didn't understand it" card when other people says they didn't like the The Dark Knight.

    If you don't like The Big Lebowski then you haven't watched The Big Lebowski enough times. It doesn't matter how many times you seen it, you gotta keep plugging away, some day its gonna hit you, and hit you hard. Then you will thank old Yellow Burger. Good luck.

    Dude, The Matrix??? In this case, parody is the sign of a great cutting edge movie, not a movie that went too far. You messed in the head on dis one, mon.

    There arent muktiple ways to interpret donnie darko. The directors cut explains most of the plot, you cant get it from thebregular movie. Also the website for donnie dark with interviews from the director sums the whole plot up. When you realixe what the plot is after watching the movie thats whenr you understand the movie and it becomes mind boggling. Also now at this time donnie darko has an atmosphere that bringd you back to the early 90s anf is sort of a nostalgia trip.

    Well, I wasn't gonna comment but one of the best movies ever made in my opinion is Matrix. The other 2 were garbage and they should have only made one.(I mean he flew away! That's it! It's over!) It's very interesting to me because everything is coded even our DNA. I think it's very possible we could be part of some super computer programming. There are even theories out there that we are living in a simulation. I believe there is definitely a programmer. That's what I think makes the movie good. Yea, the slow motion was cool, and running off walls, and the trench coats, and as you say "bullet time" but the whole movie was good. Just wanted to state my opinion even though I'm a year late :)

    5:34 "The hype it got was monumental".
    Or should I say... "the hype was Titanic"?

  • DJ Nurse Annabella

    Scrooged with Bill Murray is way better than A Christmas Story even.

    Actually, I have to agree with you on all of these films. I feel the same way. They are definitely good movies for the most part, but I mean, not the greatest of all time

    Spot on! Same here, I liked most of them, but not nearly are they as good as they are popular. The standouts especially are xmas story, donnie darko, and the matrix!

    For me its Blade Runner. I love sci fi and have tried to watch it many times and can barely get through it. Its incredibly slow for me and I don't understand the appeal.

    Hereditary. Coming from someone who is terrified of everything, I laughed through that movie.
    Edit: I agree with pretty much everything you said. My cousins favorite movie is The Big Lebowski. My husband loves A Christmas Story. Ugh.

    • lurch321
      lurch321 6 hours ago

      Bunbun doe He likes A Christmas Story AND westerns? He has DOUBLY good taste, then! Anyway, I'd say A Christmas Story is one of those movies that just isn't for everyone--but for me, it's one of those movies that gets funnier with each viewing. But to each their own.

    • Bunbun doe
      Bunbun doe 23 hours ago

      +lurch321 NO lol. I mean, A Christmas Story isn't horrible but I don't get the hype. Miracle on 34th Street is a lot better. But that's just my opinion. All he ever wants to watch is westerns 😂

      +J Greezy 100% agree! There were some creepy parts. But I hated the whole "witch cult" ending. It was too much like the paranormal activity movies. They could've done so much with the story, but nope! It was witches. Ugh.

    When I was in high school, my philosophy teacher showed us a scene from Matrix 2 (I believe), and we had to answer the morality (moral or immoral) of the statement made in the restaurant with the cake. It was on a test.

    Marvel movies are horrible in my opinion: every single movie ends in the same way,the good guy fights the bad guy, someone important dies, good guy wins, the end. My least favourite is spiderman 3, because its almost the same thing as the other movies. If you watched one of these movies, you watched all of them.

    For me, it is the Star Wars films. I do not love them anymore. Star Wars was made for 12 years olds (Lucas said it himself) and it is not aging well. I don't know who is to blame, but it is dead. Dead in the mud.

    I absolutely hate A Christmas Story, but so many people in my family love it that I usually end up watching it at least once a year. There are some cute jokes, but enough with the mean Santa Claus and the tongue on the flagpole.
    The movie that I never got growing up was ET. I think that with a lot of people they only remember the broad strokes of the movies and how it made them feel. They don't remember that that was already done in another movie or that it's completely predictable.

    The Dark Knight is the fist film that made me realize I was turning in to an old grumpy man. If your older then 12 and cite The Dark Knight rises as one of the best movies ever, I deduct 80 IQ and presume you're still living in your moms basement. Running around with his toolbelt and scuba diving protruding mouth. Ridicules.

    I rented The Big Lebowski with my friends when it came out on home video because we liked Fargo. I immediately LOVED it, re-watched it several times before returning it and then bought it for my VHS collection as soon as I could find a copy for sale! I guess you have to have a weakness for Peter Stormare, Kraftwerk, White Russian, ridiculous artists and glam life to smile through this whole movie the way that I do! However, what makes me laugh at The Big Lebowski is often the same kind of chain of events that makes me laugh at AVGN episodes! 🤔

    You explained it indirectly by mentioning classic movies. Most people my age and younger aren't interested in learning about the more subtle works of arts of days gone by. This isn't the place to speculate why this is. But if younger people saw and sincerely appreciated Hitchcock, for example, movies would be very different today.

    Hoo boy, where to start? Clerks, The Dark Knight, The Exorcist, most modern horror movies from the late 90s and onward, the new Star Wars movies, the new Star Trek movies...the list can go on. For television ver, my list includes Spongebob Squarepants, Fairly Oddparents, Rosanne, The Brady Bunch, Full House, Good Times when the show focused more on JJ and his antics at the expense of other cast members, etc.

    While I don't agree with some of those choices, I very much respect and deeply appreciate unpopular opinions. Personally, I hated "Forrest Gump" and I've never been all that crazy about "The Matrix" either. All art is subjective, and yes, many so-called masterpieces and blockbusters can be very overrated. Hype is a dangerous thing, as well as people who appoint themselves as self-appointed guardians of taste; bashing others who don't agree with their opinions. I salute Cinemassacre for both their honesty and a well-informed defense of their opinions.
