I almost posted this exact sentiment the other day.

It's fine to not take movies that seriously. We all have art forms we don't take seriously or think about much. I assume almost no one here has...

Re: Introducing non-cinephiles to film

It's all relative. Compared to the population at large I've seen an insane number of movies and think about them 20x as seriously. Compared to people here I'm below the median in terms of breadth of...

Re: Denis Villenueve seems to be trying to be Christopher Nolan so har

The distinction between trolling (or, if we want to be charitable, indirect attention-seeking) and actual discussion is whether the person engages with counterarguments. And I'm seeing virtually none...

Re: SHOGUN (Hulu)

Re: A scary thing happened on the way to the Movie Forums - Horrorcram

Re: What Do You Daydream About?

Yeah, sometimes I'd like to turn it off. But I also realize that, to turn that off, I'd have to be an entirely different person, and I'd miss a lot of the consequences (direct and indirect) of all...
