Neil: Damn mothafucka! Jimmy Bennett really is one of the most talented actors I know of...

Neil: Go watch the Disney Channel and pick on your pet clam, gilwad.
A pretty decent actor, has been in films such as Fight Club, Oceans Thirteen, Se7en etc. Not overrated in any sense of the word, he's naturally good looking; people tend to bash him out of jealousy because of his good looks. To put it into prospective, he's been in some highly, some moderate, and some poorly rated films like a lot of actors have. The ''skeptical type'' tend to focus on the poorly rated films and mock him for his apparent ''bad performances'' in them as some of the examples on here show.
Dude 1: Hey did you watch Fight Club last night?
Dude 2: Yeah, it was awesome, great movie!
Idiot 1: Brad Pitt is WAY too overrated because of his looks.
Idiot 2: I agree, there would be no hype over him if he was moderate looking, his films SUCK!!!.
Neutral Guy: Have you seen Fight Club, Se7en, Oceans Thirteen?
One of the most well known directors of horror films. His films all have bizarre, creepy, and strange/dreamlike characteristics. He is known as an auteur, that is, one of a kind.
You will literally gasp when watching Naked Lunch, a film about some homosexuals which both glorifies and hates them at the same time; will make sure your girlfriend isn't watching you while you guiltily watch Crash, an NC-17 film with explicit sex; will vomit as you watch Videodrome, a film which twists reality and has several references to extreme BSDM; will scream when the guy's head explodes in Scanners; or will simply enjoy your time (if you're like me!)
Cronenberg is the guy for horror films. You get hooked on his films... got to see each and every one of them... well, what'tcha looking at me for... start up pi##tebay and get going... :P
"Long live the new flesh!!!!!!!!" - Videodrome
"Hey wait, be truthful, is this still the game?" - eXistenZ
Cronenberg is one of the weirdest and most strange people to direct horror films and they are about 10 times creepier and weirder than he is.
|5.||George Lucas's first rule of cinematography|
A rule first postulated by known film director George Lucas, stating that, "In any given movie franchise, at least one third of the films will suck." In addition to his own Star Wars prequels, some examples of movie sagas that follow this rule are: the Matrix saga, The Godfather trilogy, The Planet of the Apes, Shrek.
An exception to the rule is Toy Story, while the ultimate application of the rule is the Twilight Saga, wherein all the movies suck, the novels sucked, and yet there's another movie in the making.
Son: Dad, do you want to watch the Phantom Menace?
John: There were no prequels, and I have no son.
Paul: Should we watch Godfather Part II?
Sam: Does George Lucas's first rule of cinematography apply to it?
Paul: On the contrary, it's the best in the series!
Unless you want the ending of a GREAT movie spoiled for you, DO NOT read any of the definitions below. The Usual Suspects is probably one of the best mysteries ever. If I were to make a list of the best crme films of the 90's it would rank number 2 (just under Pulp Fiction). The character Keyser Soze is a rarely seen, nearly mythical crime kingpin who is involved in drugs, murder, and possibly international terrorism (as hinted in one scene). Most believe he is not real, but rather boogeyman story or name-drop to intimidate people. In the end of the movie, the shocking identity of Keyser Soze is finally revealed. Go watch The Usual Suspects and see it for yourself. Do not let this great ending get ruined for you!
The background story of Keyser Soze as told by the character Verbal Kint:more...
"He's supposed to be Turkish. Some say his father was German. Nobody ever believed he was real. Nobody ever knew him or saw anybody that ever worked directly for him. But to hear Kobayashi tell it, anybody could have worked for Soze. You never knew; that was his power. The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.
One story the guys told me, the story I believe, was from his days in Turkey. There was a gang of Hungarians that wanted their own mob. They realized that to be in power, you didn't need guns or money or even numbers. You just needed the will to do what the other guy wouldn't. After a while, they come into power and then they come after Soze. He was small-time then, just running dope, they say. (We see all of this in flashback) They come to his home in the afternoon, looking for his business. They find his wife and kids in the house and decide to wait for Soze. He comes home to find his wife raped and children screaming. The Hungarians knew Soze was tough, not to be trifled with, so they let him know they meant business.
(Flashback: Hungarian cuts one of the children's throats)
They tell him they want his territory, all his business. Soze looks over the faces of his family. Then he showed these men of will what will really was.
(Soze shoots two Hungarians, then shoots his children and his wife as the last Hungarian watches in surprised horror)
Well, after being buzzed on my extra-large Tim Horton's coffee and not being able to sleep, I read the entry for "Canada" on UD. From what I can see here, it looks like the Canadians on here got bored around post 175... Because from there on, its just Canada-bashers repeating the exact same thing that the people before posted. Wow - the intelligence never ceases to amaze. Just as well, there are a few issues I'd like to clear up:more...
1) Canadians are not under-educated. Thankfully, our colleges and universities (which, by the way, are completely different things) are publicly-funded, with generally fixed tuition fees (in Ontario, around $4500 a year). This allows post-secondary education to be much more accessible here than in America. Compare this with getting a comparable education at an American university (lets say... Cornell, where my dad went.). Tuition at Cornell is $18,000/year at a public-college and $32,000/year at a private-college. In addition, our secondary school system is built on a common ground - so that it doesn't matter what high school you go to, you will be just as well prepared for university (hence us not needing to take an admission test, such as the SATs, in order to gain entrance into university).
2) Yes, it is true. Our health-care system is not perfect. Nor are we claiming that it is perfectly "free". Believe me, we are well aware that we are taxed for our health-care. However, it is universal. By this, I mean that every citizen h...
