"No, listen, there's 90 vultures and just one carcass."

-- Just Like Heaven (2005)

Whoever that is hunting a place to rent will appreciate that quote :p

Especially the 'vulgar Hollywood Blockbuster' film, as you put it. And yeah, who gives a damn about trend anyway? Trend fades away in a blink of an eye.
Most of Hollywood yields the aesthetic lowest-common-denominator a la McDonalds. Junk food <> pulp fiction.

If I'm going to pay to sit fixed in a dark room for 90-120 minutes (or increasingly 150-180 minutes these days) it better be something damned good. But most popular output these days is pitched at the highest-profit/widest-market/lowest-common denominator. So sadly, by definition, almost everything rated as popular by the masses will be akin to a lukewarm Mcburger.

And I just think that it isn't fair to make an argument without even the intention of understanding what you are criticizing. Then there is no point because an agreement will never be made.
I'm not one to leap to pre-judgement, but I also have confidence in forming an opinion that it is probably going to be about right. Same way I can confidently presume anything that makes the musical 'top-30' is going to be of no interest to me.

No you're right, you don't have to. Meanwhile re: Inception, maybe I'll see it on a flight, or when it comes out on DVD. The wife is out seeing it this pm, it'll be interesting to see what she makes of it!

You mean Inception? I do not know your wife but I have to warn you, not everyone can stomach this movie. They either think it is super brilliant or super boring. And it is always the 50-50 population kind of division.

My ex slept right after the first scene of guns and water, and never woke up until the end of the movie. That's because the premise of the movie eluded him. Having said that, probably a reason for that ex status.

Honestly with the current rental climate, you have 90 units and just one tenant.

Hmmm intriguing. Haven't spoken to her yet, so we'll see.

There are some films that can very polarising. And films that present themselves differently to different people.

Speaking of movies, I saw "Edge of Tomorrow" and "Looper" in the same flight.

Both movies involve alternate timelines and both star Emily Blunt. I like to think that crossing time zones is "time travel" but I'm still waiting for Emily Blunt.

I also like this not really but I like whole movie, all dialogues and all actors. I love this movie. This is my first choice.

From 'Troy'

Boy: The Thessolonian you're fighting... He's the biggest man I've ever seen. I wouldn't want to fight him.

Achilles: That's why no-one will remember your name.

I love this from Batman Begins:

[as Wayne Manor is burning down]
Bruce Wayne: What have I done, Alfred? Everything my family... my father built...
Alfred Pennyworth: The Wayne legacy is more than bricks and mortar, sir.
Bruce Wayne: I wanted to save Gotham. I failed.
Alfred Pennyworth: Why do we fall sir? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up.
Bruce Wayne: You still haven't given up on me?
Alfred Pennyworth: Never.

Another of my favourites from BB:

Rachel Dawes: Deep down you may still be that same great kid you used to be. But it's not who you are underneath, it's what you do that defines you.

[Fast forward]

Rachel Dawes: Wait! You could die. At least tell me your name.
[pause]
Bruce Wayne: ...It's not who I am underneath... but what I *do*... that defines me.
Rachel Dawes: ...Bruce?
[Batman turns and leaps off the roof]

My favourite,

"Because some men, aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn." -- Alfred Pennyworth on The Dark Knight
Cheers,
