[quote]keep that plan for whenever something isn't available on the main streamers.[/quote] Same. I maintain a list of about 100 movies, new and old, that aren't available on the streaming services I have. ...

re: Is there a more unattractive and overrated actress than Elisabeth Moss... - Jay Are
[quote]Is there a more unattractive and overrated actress than Elisabeth Moss...[/quote] I think it's clear that the first qualifier is the only one you're talking about here, and that you think the second because you can't get over the first. Good job finding a picture of her playing 20 years ol...

re: John Carpenter's top 3 films IYO - Jay Are
Let's assume (or I'll assume) that Halloween and The Thing belong at the top without question. To make it more fun, I'll go next three for me: 1. Assault on Precinct 13 2. Starman 3. Prince of Darkness. They Live is incredible. Both Escape from New York and Big Trouble in Little China droppe...

re: Shonda Rhimes left ABC for Netflix over Disneyland passes - Jay Are
Not the point. Why is Disney so cheap that they'd refuse a second pass to someone who has made them hundreds of millions of dollars? ...

[quote] We always here this "he created" or "created by" when all it can be is...hey lets do a Doctor show because they've been done a million times before and I have no ideas.[/quote] This is a great point. We all forgot that every single doctor drama has lasted as long as, stayed as popular as...

re: Trial of the Chicago 7 (Netflix) - 93% RT Score - Jay Are
[quote]just figured Sorkin wanted to read names to remind what the entire story of the protest was all about - the deaths in Vietnam.[/quote] Right. In theory, this is a good thing. And it should go without saying that my opinion is just that. If the scene worked for you, then it worked. ...

re: Trial of the Chicago 7 (Netflix) - 93% RT Score - Jay Are
[quote]Why does everyone hate the ending so much? What part exactly? Did I miss something?[/quote] It's one of the worst uses of the swelling, cheesy, triumphant scores that I can remember. Hayden reading the names isn't awful by itself, but Sorkin indulges his worst instincts during that scene. ...

[quote]Why the hell does someone who has 2 billion dollar give a damn about f'ing free park passes anyway?

re: 'Borat 2' Tomatometer - 89% and Spoilers Thread - Jay Are
[quote]Relevant at the box office is not the same as culturally relevant. I would say Borat had no effect on the culture of our nation whatsoever.[/quote] Dude, it's okay that you don't like Borat, but you're arguing something dumb. You're also arguing inconsistently. If you didn't think the box ...

[quote]Because as I previously stated, it's based entirely on revisionist history. Let me guess...you thought Steven Avery was innocent? The Memphis 3 didn't kill Steve Branch, Michael Moore and Christopher Byers?[/quote] Every character in the film is significantly toned down from real life. ...

re: Trial of the Chicago 7 (Netflix) - 93% RT Score - Jay Are
I love when there's a guy who shows up who thinks he's the only one around who knows the [i]real[/i] version of an historical event. It's never the version that you can read about in old papers or read or watch in thoroughly researched texts and documentaties. I imagine it's a version made up by an ...

[quote]For a low budget film ( $ 400,000 ) that earned over 100 million world wide and launched a franchise, how's about showing a bit of respect ?[/quote] Movies that led to superior sequels are then retroactively barred from even benign/light criticism? How many other Ozploitation flicks fro...

[quote] I always interpreted it as Australia got lucky- In 1979, who would want to nuke Australia? They didnt have any nuclear weapons. The US wouldnt nuke them. Russia shouldn't need to nuke them. But they would be one of the only ones left with little outside resources. Just them on the island[/q...

re: Can we discuss the original Mad Max (1979) - Jay Are
[quote]Your complaint is there's grass in a world that is collapsing into dystopia? What is "our idea" of post-apocalyptic? We're talking about George Miller's idea of post-apocalyptic. You know, the guy who invented the genre with this movie.[/quote] I didn't make a complaint. I'm saying that it...
