I see you have District 9 as your #1 (good taste!)...but Avatar is at the BOTTOM of your list? Ouch! ;-)

The only two things that were good about Avatar was its looks and its power. It had some terrible acting, writing, and storytelling and is not deserving of its present status. And the fact of how the whole world fell all over it while only a few people even talked about District 9 didn't help me like the film either.

Indeed, that film soared above my expectations for it! A lot of people are saying it's flawed though, and I for one just don't see it.

Yes, I LOVE Kick-Ass (unfortunately...? :P). The only problem I have is the scene where Kick-Ass and Big Daddy gets tortured, it was too dark. But besides that, I adore that movie to death. It's probably the movie I rewatch the most. The villain is great, the side characters are great, and unlike most people I think Kick-Ass himself is great. His motivations to become a superhero are the most realistic and believable I've ever seen in a superhero movie.

But I can ask a similar question to you: you like 'DISTRICT 9' THAT much? Not that I have a problem with that, but I personally think it's one of the most unoriginal movies I've ever seen, with an unlikable lead and a nonsense ending. If you don't know what I mean, here's a video of Doug Walker (The Nostalgia Critic) explaining why he dislikes the movie, and I pretty much agree with him:

First off: Doug Walker aka the Nostalgia Critic is the anti-christ for people who like to watch movies? What? It's just a dude on the internet with an opinion. Just because he has an opinion different than mine, yours or somebody elses doesn't make him an anti-christ. He even says it in the video: 'if you like these movies, don't feel ashamed about it, I just have a different opinion than yours'. That's a respectful message. If he said 'you're all f'ing dumb for liking these movies', only THEN I would've agreed with your anti-christ statement. And I'm also not a Nostalgia Critic fanboy or anything; he gave a negative review to Independence Day, a movie I like! His main issue was that it was so dumb; I agree with that, but it didn't bother me. And the review didn't bother me either; I disagreed with him, sure, but to call him an idiot for that is stupid and unrespectful; it's HIS opinion, why should that bother me, right? He dislikes the movie, I like the movie, whatever. And he also made a list with movies he likes but everybody else seem to hate, and he had some controversial picks like Spider-man 3 and X-men 3, both movies that are despised by many and liked by few. So it doesn't mean he finds something to hate about in EVERY movie he sees, whether they are generally considered to be good or bad.

Second: I DID see District 9 before I saw his review, and
even THEN I personally thought it was a bad movie. You're jumping to conclusions way too quickly here. My main issues then were the people in the slums eating the aliens to 'absorb their power', and the ending, which I mentioned in my previous comment. It was AFTER his review that I started to discover that District 9 is not original at all. If you don't know what I mean, check my comments on the District 9 vs Independence Day or District 9 vs Avatar discussions.

Third: I can't really talk about Moulin Rouge here, because I haven't seen the movie, but I did see parts of both his Nostalgia Critic review AND I did see his personal review in 'Movies I hate but everybody else seems to love'. He made some valid points that were visible in the Nostalgia Critic review, for example the fast editing. But, again, he did say that if you like the movie, that's fine.

Please know that I'm NOT trying to attack you here; you love District 9, I don't. I'm just giving my opinion on a movie with arguments and counter-arguments. I'm not trying to change your opinion :)

Dude, why do you care if I agree with you or not? I'm giving my own view on a movie and on a internet celebrity with arguments and counter-arguments. Do you want me to say 'yes, I am wrong, you are right, forgive my stupidity' to stay your friend? Just because I have my own opinion on something that's different than yours doesn't mean I can't be your friend. Some people that have commented on my profile page said they hated Kick-Ass. Do I agree with that? No. Are these people still my friend? Yes. I can STILL have fun conversations with them even when I don't agree with them. We're sharing our opinion on a movie. Because that's the thing: I respect their opinion. I especially respect their opinion if for example they give reasons WHY they like a movie I hate, something I do as well. If I hate Avatar and somebody else loves it, I won't say 'wow you're an idiot', but 'I disagree with you, here are my reasons why' ;)

So far, I haven't heard a single response from you to my arguments. You obviously don't agree with me, but WHY do you not agree with me? If you think we can't be friends JUST because we disagree with each other, so be it. But you can at least react to the points I made. And no personal attacks please, arguments.

I guess you didn't conclude anything from my previous comment:

"Just because I have my own opinion on something that's different than yours doesn't mean I can't be your friend. [...] I can STILL have fun conversations with them (= friends) even when I don't agree with them. We're sharing our opinion on a movie. Because that's the thing: I respect their opinion."

So I don't necesarily base my friends on movie lists. Believe me, sometimes I do, but other times I want to become a friend with somebody if they wrote something interesting, thought out or just funny, even when I don't agree with it or when they have a movie list radically different than mine. Now I can't exactly remember why I became friends with you, but it wasn't because I have a different opinion on your no. 1. Maybe because I DO agree with some other movies on your list, like Amadeus and the Shawshank Redemption. I LOVE those movies, so if you rather talk about those than District 9, be my guest. Just because we don't agree 100% on one thing doesn't mean we don't agree 100% on other things. We can still be friends, even if we have our differences, right?

And sorry for making your original profile page 5 times as long. But I wanted to explain things and you wanted me to explain things. Admittedly, I went a little too 'in depth'. But that wasn't so much about why I dislike District 9. It was mostly about me, you, friends and the Nostalgia Critic. If you want to see me extensively point out why I dislike District 9, again, check my comments on the Avatar vs District 9 and Independence Day vs District 9 pages ;)

And, again: if you love District 9, that's perfectly fine. It was never my intention to insult you for liking District 9. I was just giving my opinion on the movie. So I respect you for liking the movie, I hope you respect me (and others as well) for disliking it.

So, I have answered your question, now can you please answer mine?

Thanks for agreeing, Fiction_Fox. Zero Dark Thirty is a very good flick. And you are right on the money about the beginning and ending of Lincoln - they were both rather flawed.

Eh, I liked Jonah Hill in 21 Jump Street and This is the End, although I did think his character in Superbad was like Max Fischer without the charm and passion and good script.
As for Michael Cera, I like him when he's in good stuff. Ever seen Scott Pilgrim and Arrested Development. Well-made shit.

TWO SEQUELS? Jesus, I haven't seen a horse take a beating that hard since the Jack & Jill trailer.

Yeah, I get the hate for the Tangled characters.

I'm totally with you when it comes to Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole. I think it was terrible how that movie was treated. People who didn't even see the film were just calling it "that owl movie" (like David Chen from the /Film podcast).

I'll be honest, I'm not the biggest musical fan, but I can appreciate one every now and then. So for animations, I tend to lean more towards comedies or action (I like action as you probably can tell).

I like Bluth movies like Land Before Time and American Tail, but it's been a very long time since I watched them.

I'll keep an eye out for Prince of Egypt, mate.

As a friend, I appreciate the warning. However, it doesn't mean it's a no deal for me. But once again, I thank you for the heads-up. :)

I will assume you meant both, or maybe you thought it was one title. That's possible.

Don't expect anything like a Disney movie. These stories deal with serious issues (Mary and Max more than Triplets), but still remain funny

Well, Mary and Max is an Aussie claymation directed by Adam Elliott, who won an Academy Award for his short Harvie Krumpet (which you can find on YouTube). Mary, a lonely Aussie girl, decides to write a letter to someone from New York. That person turns out to be Max (voiced by Phillip Seymour Hoffman), a obese, lonely man. The story then follows the two as they create a friendship through letters.

The Triplets of Belleville is about an elderly woman who is trying to find her cyclist grandson after he is kidnapped from the Tour de France. She is also joined by the Triplets of Belleville, which are a stage act from decades prior, and her Dog Bruno. What I liked was the style of animation. I can't even describe it. You may of seen something like it before. But anyway, I found it to be truly hilarious, and even had some surprising action scenes at times. I wasn't sure if I'd like it before I watched it, but I had a blast. Oh, one more thing, the film has little to no dialogue for the entirety of the film.

If you want to know anything else, just ask.

I highly doubt they will do a sequel. It really was a bomb. But, you never know. They're doing a sequel to MaGruber, which is one of the biggest bombs of all time.

You know, I met an actor from Moulin Rouge. She didn't have a very large part, though. She's a little person (I don't know what they preferred to be called now, I've heard multiple answers). She was bloody cool! She's friends with my cousin, so that's how I met her. I was very lucky. I'm very tall (6 foot 6), and when everybody started mingling, I accidently nearly hit her with my knee! :O

The Land Before Time is on tv next week. I juststumbled onto it. :) I think I will have a nostalgic rewatch.

While we're on the subject. My cousin is an actress and playwright. The most accessible movie to see her in is The Great Gatsby. She plays Mrs Mckee. Very small part. But she had to fly to Sydney, film her scenes with Tobey MaGuire, fly back to Brisbane that night, then do two shows of Hamlet the next day. Phew! :)

Ok. I will stick to what you show me. It's a whole different world to me if I'm honest. I don't really want to stumble onto something somewhere on the site that I'm uncomfortable with.

I've heard a bit about furries, but not enough to be an expert on the subject. I just heard an opinion, and a story, on a podcast that I will keep to myself unless you want to hear it.

I never played either of those versions of Star Fox. I had a copy on the really old Nintendo that I think I finished ten times. :D

Yep, I get your point entirely. An why that worked for you. I just built it up in my head, ya know? So I was a bit disappointed by what was shown.

Thanks for allowing me call you by your first name. :)

Yep, I think I will enjoy myself. You know, I still haven't finished some from 2007! :D :O No worries about the mistake either. ;)

Yeah, I won't mention what I heard, mate.

I'm back at work, so I won't be able to respond as fast I I did.

I will get to your review of Rent, I promise.

Are you like me that you don't even attempt to play some? I have so many that I haven't even looked at. :)

I recall you had a different fox for a pic before, what was it from?

Were you worried about telling me about...you know? I hope you weren't. I accept you for who you are. You've been great to talk to. As long as you're nice to me, I've got your back. :)

District 9 is a 10/10 movie for me. Some people don't like the ending, but I'm an action guy! :D I get such a big smile on my face. The pig part made me laugh and laugh.

I've been debating the spot Avatar has on my list if I'm to be honest. I haven't seen it since the cinemas, so I wonder how it holds up.

Ah, Cabin in the Woods. :) Man, I loved that movie. Us Aussies get ripped off with horror movies. I was in Cairns on holiday, and planned to see The Cabin in the Woods. Naturally, I thought it would be everywhere. But no, it was in two cinemas in the whole godamn country. One was in Fremantle (which pissed me off more because it's only a few hours from where I live), and Melbourne! You know what I had to see instead? That's My Boy. :/ We didn't get Drag Me to Hell, You're Next and many, many others.

Anyway, Cabin in the Woods blew me away. When those elevator doors opened.........I lost it. I will let you in on my potential embarrassing moment. I verbally said 'YEAH!!!' :D On top of that, I punched the air.

I do love Batman Begins, but not as much. My top two makes me worried what people think because it makes me look like one of those one-sided fanboys- which I avoid doing. I like hearing people's opinions to get another perspective. Sometimes they hate a movie I like, but that really doesn't bother me. But anyway, that was a tangent I wasn't expecting. :D Yes, I do love Batman Begins, but what holds it back for me is the villain. What makes me love the next two more is for the fantastic performances of Ledger and Hardy. Plus both villains make push Batman to the breaking point like we've never seen in a superhero movie. If I'm correct, BB is somewhere in the mid 100's on my list.

Don't worry, I won't miss any comments buddy. I 'like' every comment, so it's ver easy to see the last comment I replied to.

I've probably got 20 games I haven't played. :D

Fursona? Is that the proper name? :) Oh, I get why you changed it. That reason makes complete sense.

Yeah, I meant that by "you know". I just didn't what to say it too much in case you didn't want comments about it in your comments section. You get me? I was thinking of what you'd want. Please tell me how I should handle it. :)

I'll be honest with you, because I think you deserve that. It took a bit for me to get my head around. Especially when I had the guys talking about the pile in my head as the initial source of info. It was only this year that I knew it was a thing. This country guy from W.A usually deals with the same type of people. Bloody ferals, and plenty of bogans (Aussie slang, I'll explain it if required). I'm very glad you're comfortable with me buddy- as I am with you. I did get the sense you were worried when you sent the link to me. It was just the normal getting to know someone really. :)

I didn't mind Drag Me to Hell. It had some humour that I appreciated. But it really worked out missing out watching it. You know what we saw instead? District bloody 9! :D I hadn't heard much about it, but saw the rottentomatoes score, and decided to see it. Man, that feeling of disappointment on missing out was soon gone when District 9 started!

You make me want to watch Wolf of Wall Street more now. :D I'll admit something to you now. I don't swear. I keep that to myself most of the time because I would get mocked. I don't even care if other people swear. It's just not in my nature to talk like that. It's just how I was built. :) The only time swearing annoys me is when someone says fuck for every second word. That does get on my nerves. :)

Yeah, Avatar may need a rewatch, but I'm not currently doing that. I've probably rewatched 6 movies over the last 2 and a 1/2 years. I'm currently working on the Flickchart top 1000. I've got 74 (?) to go. :)

I enjoyed You're Next greatly. But it's a movie that is better if nothing is said about it. :)

I'm the opposite. I rarely get scared. I'm not trying to sound like a toughie, It's just a fact. :) But it doesn't detract from a good horror movie for me. I can appreciate so much of the genre.

Oh, I then rewound and punched the air three more times. :D I then slowed it right down so I could see what each thing was doing to the guards. :)

No, no, I didn't think you were hating on me, buddy. You'd have to do more than that to get me annoyed. I'm very laid back, but I do over think how people may take something I say to them. You're most welcome to at any time to ask a question about my list or a specific movie. I won't bite ya head off. :)

Got anything lined up to watch?

To get my head around your thing. It was the voice in my heads from the podcast. They talked about it for a long time, and that's the only thing I had heard before about it. They're comedians, so you can guess what was said.

Bogan is similar to a redneck. The men have tight little AFL (Australian Football League) shorts on, a bluey (our type of singlet), thongs (what we call flip flops), and a VB in his hand (Victoria Bitter). These people tend to have mullets, a lack of teeth, and are missing a bunch of teeth. However, bogans have a deep love for Australia, which leads to many violent encounters with people from other countries. They're dicks. You can get a decent bog an every now and then that's just a good laugh, and isn't racist. But that's few and far between.

It was a joke, the Wolf of Wall Street comment. :) But swearing doesn't bother me in movies, either. It's just when people say something like 'I fuckin' went to fuckin' Melbourne on the fuckin' weekend to watch the fuckin' footy. Fuck, it was a fuckin' blowout! Fuckin' waste of fuckin' money!' :) Happens a lot down here.

I enjoyed reading your thoughts on Paranormal Activity. :)

Did I upset you with my first comment on the last post? ^ I hope not.

It's Australia Day next week, so all the bogans will be out in full force. It's sad when someone with a Aussie flag on their car is probably an idiot.

I guess feral is Aussie slang. I thought it was common.......guess not. It's a name for wild, untidy, filthy people. Man, I could tell you some awful stories about some people where I live. But I think I will save you from the mental pictures. :D

No, I hadn't heard about the Battlefield 4 character. That probably wouldn't bother me either. It's just annoying in conversations when people talk like that. Well, for me anyway. :)

Would you watch The Conjuring?

Did you watch The Animals of Farthing Wood when you were younger?

I loved Animals of Farthing Wood. The fox leading all the animals to a new forrest was one of my favourite characters. A funny, yet very sad show. It was a great show for kids. Too many kids now are protected from too much, so when they go out into the world, they can't handle things.

So, were you drawn to foxes because they're cunning, devious, perhaps evil creatures?

I'm not familiar with Bleach, but I'm liking the passion calling him a fox! :D

Yeah, I had to add about 15 movies over the time on the site. Most of them have been Aussie movies.

I love Up, but I see your point. To keep giving it to them is sending the wrong message. I also loved Coraline, but haven't seen Princess and the Frog. You probably like that Monsters University missed out, yes? It would be good to see them step up their game a bit.

In case someone else reads it you call yourself a weirdo? I hope you know that I won't. :)

I actually don't know what rule 34 is, but I assume the

Fattening him up? How old are these people?!

You ask an interesting question for the alternate dimension version of me: would I add you if you had all animations? The answer is......that I don't know. I would hope that I wouldn't be so narrow minded. I have a bunch of friends on here with completely different lists.

I personally don't put "better" films over favourites. My list is my list, people can accept it, or bugger off. :D

How are you with avant garde films? I personally can't handle them. :)

If you don't mind, I'm interested in what your top ten favourite movie list is. Exclude what is better, we're talking just the movies you get the most from. :)

Would you liked the Wanted film more if they were dressed up like they are in the comics? Then you'd get a Jolie dressed up as a fox. :)

I getcha, you still like all the movies in your top ten. :)

I didn't see either Cars movies, and Brave is a big letdown. I loved Rango and Kung Fu Panda 2 as well. :) Monsters University is alright, but it's Pixar lite.

I think I could handle them, but I thank you for not telling me. :) I'm not eager to know. :D

Avant Garde is so pretentious. I watched 8 1/2 and Last Year at Marienbad. Man, they're so bloody boring to me.

Don't put in too much work if it's a hassle, buddy. I just thought you may of had a top ten favourites in your head. :)

I think I'm open to seeing Cars, but I personally think Planes is just Disney putting out an inferior film for a cash grab.

By lite, I meant that it's good, but has less substance.

I enjoy Benjamin Button as well. :)

I haven't seen any Secret of NIMH movies. :O I liked hearing your thoughts. Nostalgia is such an influence, eh? But you like what you like, it doesn't bother me. I have movies that I love (Vampire's Kiss), that can be considered bad as well.

Country music is quite big in Australia. But most seem to listen to Aussie country singers. They have a different style to American country singers. Troy Casser-Daly, Adam Brand, Kasey Chambers, Adam Harvey, and legends Slim Dusty, John Williamson, and Lee Kernaghan come to mind. Oh, Keith Urban, but he's more like an American country singer. I haven't heard of any of the country singers you listed. :)

How much do you know about Australia? Not having a go, or anything like that. Just being a curious cat. :)

I tell you what, for you buddy, I will check Tom Sawyer out sometime. :)

Great thoughts on Benjamin Button. I liked reading them. You're very clever with expressing what movies mean to you. :)

Nostalgia is big for me, but I think you beat me in that department. :)

Yeah. Although I think some of the Aussie country music is becoming more Americanised. The biggest country song that comes to mind that really has an Aussis flavour is Slim Dusty Pub with no Beer.

I listened to Womack's I Hope You Dance. It rings a bell, but I'm not sure if it's from the original, or someone singing it on American Idol.

There is some big cities down here, but nothing like you guys have. Pretty much all of it is desert. We all just live near the water.

I don't quite get what you meant by athleticism there with all the wilderness. :)

Nah, you don't offend me. Didgeridoos and boomerangs are the things that are very memorable from Australia for other countries.

I think we're one of the only countries that eat our coat of arms. :D That would be the kangaroo and emu. :)

Okay, thanks for making it more clear about your list. :)

I want to tell you something else about myself seeing you've told me about yourself. I'm a very shy, quiet person. I'm fine just sitting and listening to people talk, but people sometimes get the wrong impression of me. That's when I shut them out completely. The thing is, I can be very loud, and talk a lot. But I have to be comfortable with the people around me. If a new person enters I'm unsure of, I shut up very quickly. I guess it means it's very hard to get to know me. But I'm a great listener. I take in what people have to say.

It's fine George. I just hope your internet gets fixed soon.

Yes, many of us are like know you described. But many of us are just like people you'd find anywhere else. :)

I'm a bit of a thinker too. I don't think of any mind blowing things, I'm always thinking about something. Some people can't handle being quiet, or silence, but I can with ease. The people I know, who I like, get to hear what I have to say. Other people, I don't worry about. I feel some people are intimidated by me as well. I'm six foot six, and am quite strong. I don't say that in any way to make myself sound good, I just deal with facts. Some people think i'm stupid, or am scary just by my size. A bright side is that my size has allowed me to not have to get in fights. People tend to leave me alone, and I'm no bully, so I never had to throw a fist. That's fine by me. I'm not for all this macho bullshit.

I don't want to sound too sad. I have my friends, and have a good laugh. But my shyness is definitely a restriction.

You can rank how you want, it's your list. But personally, I don't add a movie until I've seen it all. I can't rank it accurately unless i see everything. If I was to watch 40 minutes of The Raid, I feel it would be much lower on my list.

Now George, I have read two of your reviews, will you read the link soon?

Don't leave me in the dark. :D what was the nostalgia piece? Mulan 2? Lady and the Tramp 2? :)

Not a hot chip, but a cold chip.' :D

I've thought of movies years later on here that I could've sworn were on my list. Some that seem so obvious were overlooked by me.

I think you will like Her. So many ideas in that movie! I also dug how they handled people's reactions to finding out about the relationship. Not the cliche way that I see in many other films.

The Wages of Fear is a very intense film, but if I had to guess, it might not be for you. But hey, I could be wrong. These four men travel over uneven road with unstable nitro glycerine. That's the very basic plot for it.

I bloody missed All the Kings Men the other day by a few hours.

Set in the 50's I think. That's is when the novel was written, and the film was made. Nothing in the film told me otherwise.....that I remember. It's a foreign language film. Don't know if that's a problem or not.

Yep, but it only was shown a few times. I know there's two veriosns, and it most definitely was the remake.

I know nothing of this honey badger meme. I just found out about them, and the more I learnt, the more I was excited. They're such tough little bastards! I love that they won't back down from any animal.

The Wages of Fear is French. I know how you feel, that's how I used to think about foreign language films. It's quite possible you have a different opinion (you have every right to) but I think once you've seen a few, one gets used to reading the subtitles. It sometimes actually makes me focus more on the film, instead of thinking about something else for a while.

I checked it out. I think I want a shirt. ;)

I watched a doc on a honey badger last week. A porcupine had stolen the young badger's burrow, and she had to get it out. Quite an effort, those things are bloody intense! She drove it out, though. Pretty awesome creature.

Well, I haven't seen Rock of Ages, so I cannot comment on that. The trailer looked pretty bad in my opinion.

Pitch Black was pretty awesome for it's time. But the special effects are starting to really show their age. Diesel is pretty good, much better than he is in other films.

Really enjoy Zombieland. Love the rules to survive, the cameo, and Woody Harrelson. :)

Chronicles of Riddick got so much backlash, that Riddick is pretty much a reboot of the series. I really enjoyed the start of Riddick, but was let down as the film progressed. It's a light 3.5/5 for me.

I wouldn't pick it over Shaun of the Dead personally, but it's close. :)

Yep, that's why I brought up True Detective. Plus I find it amazing. Like an eight hour movie. McConaughey just keeps amazing me with the turnaround in his career.

She missed the pillar by centremetres, so at least she didn't hit that. However, she put a huge dent into the back door. It'll cost $1993 to fix it. But we all saw it, and it'll go through insurance. I don't have to pay a thing. It'll just be an inconvenience to not have a car. Lucky I live in a very small town, and can get around easily without it.

Yeah, not on at all. The kid is a nice guy, too. I'm keeping him away from the bastard.

It's not a risk for movie fans. But I'm just thinking of narrow minded people that just see a raccoon on the poster, then that's enough for them to be put off from the film. Hopefully it makes enough that it doesn't matter what those people think.

I kinda understood Diesel as Groot. Seems like they watched The Iron Giant (which Diesel voiced). :)
