Yes! very well done!

As for Avatar, it is visually fun but otherwise just Ferngully retreaded and pumped up on CG steroids!
It's Pocahontas. In space.

Ooooh! Looks like we got a small but growing minority of folks not fond of Avatar!! Sounds like a revolt within a revolt!!

Well, I enjoyed Avatar, it was clearly a rip off any number of things, including many current environmental situations. but still, it was good mindless entertainment.

The difference being , in the real world, the local population who wish to preserve their environment never wins.

Okay, I can't stand any more of this "........" was the greatest movie ever stuff.
EVERYTHING pales in comparison to Blazing Sadles.
(With the exception of Young Frankenstein which, of course, is a close second.)

I don't know, 'The Rocky Horror Picture' show is pretty "out there".

It's amazing how many of those old pictures haven't aged well. Partly because I was a photography student when it came out I really liked "Blow up." Now i can't watch it of even 5 seconds. 2001 was awesome, at the time, now it just seems cheesey. (so it should fit right into this thread.) Woodstock was mind blowing, now it's mind numbing. I liked Full Metal Jacket, I'd heard from so many Viet Nam vets what the war was like, that movie brought it to life for me. The stuff they told me , I only partly understood became real, but the Vietnam war is old news. Besides, I've become incredibly less intellectually demanding in my old age. I think as you get older your brain turns to mush.

My favourite movies of the moment..
The 100 year old Man...
Boyhood
Bears
Guardians of the Galaxy
La Femme Nikita ( French Version)
The Imitation Game
Wild
Spy
The Hunger Games series.
The Best Offer
Mud
The Station Agent




On the older list
Serenity, the series followed by the movie
Tank Girl (I'm the only one I know who likes this movie.)
The gods must be crazy.



But I try and watch Blazing Saddles, Airplane and Dodge Ball and Oh Brother Where Art Thou?? once every 5 years or so.

Oh yes, and Monty Python's "The meaning of life" featuring the "Universe Song" and "Every Sperm is Sacred"

And the great dissertation on the World's Great Religions, concluded with the statement "People aren't buying enough hats."

Can't really put that in with the rest. It's in a whole different world. The first interactive multimedia musical extravaganza!!

Avatar had great visuals, but the plot was pretty predictable and standard off-the-shelf Hollywood stuff. I rate it 6.5/10.

Avatar was beautiful on the big screen. It wasn't any new, groundbreaking plot though. It was safe, predictable. Just a prettier telling of a story told a hundred times.

Fifth Element. Big bada boom! I win!!

Oh ya, I borrowed Fifth Element from my ex brother in law and never gave it back. It's not my fault, he broke up with my sister. I watch that once every 5 years or so too.

Omg! We watch it about once a month. My husband loved it. He would stop channel surfing & watch the rest of it, no matter where it was in the movie when he happened upon it. I can pretty much quote the whole damn thing!

Yeah, I've got a lot of brain cells wasted on Fifth Element quotes. "...a perfect replica of the old opera house - but who cares?"
