  1. Agree, but in this case, especially when the whole film is about the nature of reality, I think it works well.
  2. The fact that there is discussion years later is the exact reason why the ending is ambiguous. If the top fell, there is nothing to think about or no alternatives to explore, no reddit threads, no dueling theories.
  3. That is one of my all time favorites. Your post almost motivates me to try this show, but I'm almost sure I will be disappointed.
  4. No, it just seems weird because its been out for a decade and the ending has been widely discussed and debated all over the media and the Internet.
  5. Do we really need spoiler tags on a movie that is 10 years old?
  6. Isn't Jaws acknowledged as a great film? It isn't obviously as artsy or as deep as something like The Godfather, but I would say it is a great thriller and a master class in building suspense.
  7. Did you miss the 'yes' in the previous post?
  8. Yeah, probably, top 20ish. But I would argue that while there is some subjectivity in football, great players, Larry Fitzgerald as another receiver example, stuck on mediocre teams for the most party, freakish bizarre plays that change the course of history, etc. it is generally more objective than something like art.
  9. Okay, I'll bite. Football, yes. How is that relevant?
  10. Yes and no. Art is subjective, yes,and people like what they like. If you're going to try to tell me that Predator is on the same level as The Godfather as art, then just no. I like a lot of B movies, I love Roger Corman, but I would never compare him to Hitchcock or even Nolan. I would never say that Halloween, the greatest slasher film of all time belongs in the same conversation as Dunkirk or Casino. At the end of the road of something is great if some people think it is lies the world where dogs playing poker and clown paintings are as good as Botticelli.
  11. Are these the same people who fall asleep during The Godfather? Perhaps these people should pick a different hobby than movies.
  12. Predator is not 'one of the best films ever' come on. It isn't even one of Peak Arnold's best films, which are popcorn campy action flicks with dodgy acting to begin with, how could such a film possibly be in the same conversation as Jaws or Godfather or Dunkirk or The Shining or Vertigo. Hereditary is a good horror film, but I doubt its going to crack AFIs top 100 any time soon.
  13. I honestly don't think I know anyone who doesn't love Godfather 1 & 2 and have never heard that it put anyone to sleep.
  14. Barbaraian!!! Joan Fontaine at her simpering 'best', Olivier, George Sanders, lesbian undertones, British aristos, murder. Based on DuMarier's novel. Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.
