I thought "A Boy and his Dog" was a great movie, but maybe it wasn't. Maybe it was only great if you had read the book, or were into Harlan Ellison. But I wouldn't argue that it was better than anything with a 70+ rating. Pinback wins.

76 on Rotten Tomatoes. (64 on MRQE, but close enough.)

Because this board is full of contrarians and sociopaths who would rather suffer through the aftermaths of ten meals at Jack in the Box than admit they like something popular or agreed with any "professional" anybody.

This is a TV critic and is an example of what I was talking about. Just an insipid cretin quoting the exact punchlines from an episode of SNL.

Already mentioned Event Horizon, but They Live is another great movie and proves movie critics are idiots.

I don't belong here. There's no way Event Horizon and "awesome" should ever be in the same book, let alone the same sentence.

I'm out.
