That's your answer to me after correctly pointing out that you're the type of guy to put BV in front of SoTL? That's not a generalization. It's called truth.
So one single element of truth makes an entire generalization true?
Now I know you're doing this crap on purpose. Here's what you said:
Can you read your own post, look a few posts up:
And yeah BV is ahead of SotL for me, no question.
BTW, you want me to take you seriously when you throw out extremes like this:
That is a direct
quote from you. Here, I'll link it for you: LINK
Now if you misquoted yourself, that's one thing, just responding as posting.
Way better to just stick with what's written.
But I never said you did. See the difference with you trying to make it seem like I said SoTL is the greatest of all-time?
Yeah, that was my point. Your entire reaction is based on an emotional response to me saying SotL is a very good movie, but not great. I don't see your point here.
It's cool, I was just hoping a professional critic like you would be able to give some reasons why SoTL isn't a "great" film or now, especially, how a film like BV would be in front of it.
So a few things with this statement:
1. Then why the hell are you engaging me in this sort of conversation when this is what you really want? Why haven't you actually tried to talk about the movie, when I already did. Granted, when I answer this questions is has more to do with "What is great?" Rather than, "Is SotL great?" and that is a small distinction up for discussion.
2. And why is the onus on me to prove that it's not great. So are all films assumed great and it's up to the viewer to critique and prove that it isn't? That's a terrible way to think about it, and makes for a negative view of this discussion in the first place.
3. If your assumption is "The film is automatically great and you have to prove me wrong," which is YOUR approach, then I'm automatically generating the negative response and being combative with you, there's no way around it. And when someone takes a stand like that, they are going to defend it regardless of truth or the discussion, because we're human. So there's really no point.
4. And if you really wanted to talk about the film why did you do so like this:
What kind of great?
An overall amazing, historically important and influential film? No, not at all.
A great mix of writing, acting, editing, etc.? Eh, probably so, but maybe not. It's certainly a character piece and it is great at that. Not sure the rest is really up to snuff. But it's debatable.
<image>Watch out guys, we're dealing with a badass here.
People make me laugh. Yeah, the movie is just ok
Where is the film critique here? The serious concern for the discussion? Please show me in the internet meme and the laugh where your opinion is so well displayed for the world?
