The Thin Red Line beats Kevin Smith's subjective ego.
Ego is subjective by nature. Pure tautology. Would rather Smith's humorous ego to Malick's self-serious, poseurish ego.
Isn't that a pleonasm?
Only if you value concision over style points. Kevin Smith certainly doesn't, and Malick... well, who gives a fuck what that moron values?
I don't know, "pure pleonasm" sounds more concise *and* cooler than "pure tautology". But that's just me.
Ah, I see. I thought you were referring to my response as pleonastic (because the second statement is an unnecessary reinforcement of the first). But, yeah, in that case you're good; 'pleonasm' would be fine and sexy. I guess I'd probably still go with 'tautology' because pleonasms are more or less semantic redundancies while tautologies can be redundancies in words or concepts/ideas/numbers/stuff-n-things. Otherwise, yeah, the alliterative "pure pleonasm" is probably cooler. Man, I fucking love words about words. Word.
