You found it boring? Why? I personally love this movie, it's got Pacino and Williams at their career-best.

Re: Is censorship in older movies going to get worse?

I do think retroactive censorship has gotten a lot worse in recent years, and unless something drastic changes it will probably continue getting worse. It's not just with movies, we also have Louis...

There's certainly something unique about 80's comedies. They often contain very edgy humor, yet also have a goodspirited charm to them at the same time.

I also like 90's comedies. While they do...

Re: Evil Dead 2 vs. Army of Darkness

The Evil Dead is more pure horror, but the black humor was there from the start. Just because the series took itself more seriously at first doesn't mean it wasn't fun. Sometimes I got legitimately...

Re: Best TV Series of the 90s

I'm extremely technical, so I only count shows that started in the 90's (with the exception of Seinfeld and The Simpsons since only the pilot episode is from the 80's)
