    Eh we're all into different things. Justin Beiber sells a disgusting amount of CDs and tickets, but I dislike him too. It's all opinions, man.

    My favourite flick is Tallageda Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.

    I'm a simple man and I like to laugh
    Justin Biebers music doesn't get very good critics reviews. I would say the Godfather is subtly brilliant and that is partially because it isn't commercialised, but yeah it isn't quite a comedy. Have you seen any Monty Python stuff? That's my favourite comedy stuff by far

    The Godfather is slightly overrated, but it's still a great film imo

    The hype was from people with taste, obviously.

    That's fine with me. You keep your rated classics, and I'll keep my less-rated teen dystopian fantasy films and Disney :love: .


    As has been said above, people like different things. No-one has an obligation to follow social convention on what's 'good' or 'bad', and neither do you :rolleyes:

    You have clearly no taste I'm films. That is like saying "Only wannabe secret agents watch James Bond", or "Only wannabe superheroes watch the dark knight." What do you consider to be a good movie?

    Those are genuinely trashy types of films.

    I loved Life of Brian, but the sketches were hit or miss for me.
    Haha I'm coming off terribly here ><

    By no standard, apart from the amount of jump scares is the exorcist better than a movie that is rated no. 1 by both main critic websites and 2nd by IMDB, thee most popular public opinion movie resource. It has class, subtlety, acting masterclass, great cinematography and a great script whilst the exorcist as before mentioned has jump scares and an extremely generic storyline. Also, the phrase "any given day" is stupid, as the movies don't change depending on the day.

    Usually when movies are overhyped as much as this, they turn out so underwhelming and I end up disappointed.

    I'd rather not spoil the amazing image of it in my head.

    What would you rank as being better than it?

    Yeah it's pretty mediocre. Shawshank is very good though, and not really an old movie.

    I disagree. I think The Godfather is way superior over Goodfellas. But then again, I do find many Scorsese films to be overrated, with perhaps Raging Bull and The King of Comedy being the exceptions.

    Shawshank redemption is actually a good movie that lived up to the hype so probably that.

    I agree that is very good, and about 20 years newer. Have you seen anything like Butch Cassidy or On The Waterfront?
