Re: Godzilla vs Kong

Well it seems like Kong and Godzilla are unevenly matched, because Kong was killed by machine guns before where as Godzilla has had large missiles launched at him and they bounce off like ping pong...

Re: Enterteinment one vs "cerebral" one - what would you pick?

Well in the OP, it seems that all the movies on the left are more popular, so I guess he/she means more popular, vs less popular, but still cerebral?

Re: Enterteinment one vs "cerebral" one - what would you pick?

Inception/Memento, tough call, and it's a tie so far.
Zodiac
The Terminator
The Godfather
Star Wars

So I guess that makes me half and half on the entertainment vs. cerebral?

Another cliche that I am tired of is the assassin having a crisis of conscience and wanting to turn good, cliche.

Re: Insane number of nazi references in movies

People in real life have been making a lot more nazi references I have noticed though too. To quote Bill Maher, calling someone a nazi is the new, I don't like you.

I agree with that. I think everything in a movie is manipulation. The editing, the sound design, the color scheme, etc. So I don't feel music is any more, than anything else in a movie.

Forrest Gump is a little overrated. Watch Slumdog Millionaire instead.

Goodfellas is also a little overrated and watch City Of God instead.
