re: Trial of the Chicago 7 (Netflix) - 93% RT Score - Jay Are
I love when there's a guy who shows up who thinks he's the only one around who knows the [i]real[/i] version of an historical event. It's never the version that you can read about in old papers or read or watch in thoroughly researched texts and documentaties. I imagine it's a version made up by an ...

re: Can we discuss the original Mad Max (1979) - Jay Are
[quote]For a low budget film ( $ 400,000 ) that earned over 100 million world wide and launched a franchise, how's about showing a bit of respect ?[/quote] Movies that led to superior sequels are then retroactively barred from even benign/light criticism? How many other Ozploitation flicks fro...

re: Can we discuss the original Mad Max (1979) - Jay Are
[quote] I always interpreted it as Australia got lucky- In 1979, who would want to nuke Australia? They didnt have any nuclear weapons. The US wouldnt nuke them. Russia shouldn't need to nuke them. But they would be one of the only ones left with little outside resources. Just them on the island[/q...

re: Can we discuss the original Mad Max (1979) - Jay Are
[quote]Your complaint is there's grass in a world that is collapsing into dystopia? What is "our idea" of post-apocalyptic? We're talking about George Miller's idea of post-apocalyptic. You know, the guy who invented the genre with this movie.[/quote] I didn't make a complaint. I'm saying that it...

re: Can we discuss the original Mad Max (1979) - Jay Are
[quote]Lol, really? Look up descriptions for Mad Max. Almost all of them are similar to what I wrote. Dystopic, post-apocalyptic, wasteland, bleak, etc. What I wrote was accurate.[/quote] It looks like Australia grassland, and looks nothing like road warrior or thunder dome. The family takes a va...

re: Trial of the Chicago 7 (Netflix) - 93% RT Score - Jay Are
I definitely had some issues, including the eye-roll ending. Loved the first 15 minutes unabashedly. Thought Sorkin's use of archival footage was... silly, at best. Continues Sorkin's aversion to moral ambiguity and subtlety, when I think those two things would make this story much more compelling. ...

re: Jordan Peele horror - Jay Are
[quote]The movie was meant to make you laugh imo[/quote] Us was.

re: Gal Gadot cast as Cleopatra, and people aren't happy about it - Jay Are
[quote]There’s probably as much Gaulic and Celtic DNA in Italy now as there is in France and Germany despite the fact that neither are from there.

[quote]I thought we were discussing an issue rationally on a message board[/quote] Do you have a link to such a message board? That sounds nice. Considering only one person on this thread has seen the movie, and that his opinion was basically dismissed out-of-hand, no one here is saying anyth...

re: Netflix indicted on kiddy porn charges in Texas for airing "Cuties" - Jay Are
[quote]The ole "we'll show you how bad sexual exploitation of children is by sexually exploiting children" routine, huh?[/quote] Follow that logic. War movies often convey their anti-war message by showing the viewer how awful war is. It's possible that this movie is not what you think, consideri...
