Likewise Breesus, I've already learned to disregard anything you post. Obviously your opinion is the only one that matters.

Nah dude, i enjoy good a debate, but these statements:

quote:

But Juno is one of the greatest movies of all time.

quote:

Juno surpasses anything Coen

Are just downright insane. Juno was an ok movie, but pump your breaks on all of that.

re: Juno


Cody's Screenplay Oscar and Best Picture nomination say "Hi." For me the funniest Coen film was "Raising Arizona," wittiest was "O Brother..." For my taste, Juno is far superior.

quote:

Every single Mel Brooks and Christopher Guest and Cohen brothers movie says hello


Coen's are good and their body of work is obviously better, but for a single movie I take Juno over anything they did. Mel Brooks I love, but falls more into "intentionally stupid" comedy rather than intelligent wit. My favorite would be Young Frankenstein, but he beats the jokes to death. Instead of making the joke and assuming the audience gets it, he has to beat you over the head with the delivery just to make sure you got it, which ruins it. Christopher Guest, I look at Spinal Tap as his peak, and it passes more as dry humor.

quote:

Juno is the textbook example of why wit and intelligence trumps a set of 36 DD's.

debatable, but i there are much much much better examples of this than her. Like Natalie Potman or Rashida Jones for example.


Rashida Jones...good but no comparison for me. Natalie Portman...damn close, but I still take Ellen Page.

quote:

"Hard Candy" is one of the most badass movies of all time.

The Godfather, Star Wars, Every Tarantino movie, Scarface, American Gangster, Raging Bull, Casino, Kick-Ass, Independence Day, Watchman,....... say hi


Boxers, gangsters, and hero-types are supposed to be badass. What makes Hard Candy so badass is that it is a teenage girl playing the "victim" who is the badass.
Now Chloe Moretz's Hit Girl might be the most badass character to ever hit the screen. If Ellen Page is my favorite actress in her 20's Chloe Moretz is BY FAR the greatest teen actress working today.

quote:

It alone elevates Diablo Cody to Tarantino or Coen-esque status,

I dont think you understand Tarantino's level


This was obviously said tongue-in-cheek. Diablo Cody, as Jennifer's Body demonstrated, will never have the body of work that Tarantino or the Coens have established.

In the end, if we're comparing movies with a similar comedic intent, I'd have to say The Princess Bride is every bit as worthy of the accolades I personally bestow upon Juno. Doesn't change my opinion of my personal favorite though.

I see that some of the superiority complexes on here are just about equal to the OT.

Juno really is one of my favorite movies... Ellen Page was perfect for that role

My problem with Juno is that it tried to hard. It wound up being a generic, quirky indie comedy that forced pop culture references down your throat ad nauseum. It had an uninteresting plot and dialogue that seemed very contrived. On the flip side, Ellen Page was very sympathetic and likable, and I thought the supporting cast was strong too. It's the only thing that prevents me from claiming it a bad movie.

That is EXACTLY how I feel. The quirkiness and overly contrived dialog made me really dislike it. Performances were ok but not enough to save the movie. I later sat thru the also overly contrived and ridiculous "Hard Candy" and realized I did not like Ellen Page, at all.

People tell me my wife looks like Ellen Page, so I'm going to assume I like her.

I enjoyed Juno but it wasn't some masterpiece.
After a few viewings I did feel it seemed to be trying a little too hard to be quirky and cute.

Here's an article about the backlash that apparently developed towards the movie.
