|Grade: F, fails in every way a film can and traps good actors in an amateurish project. The effects are awful, the Dutch Angle approach is nauseating, the look is not pleasing, the acting goes so far over the line they can't even see the line (the line is a dot to them!), and there's plot holes you could drive a Mack Truck through. |

|^TNA has been awesome since Russo was let go. Slammiversary was a great show and Impact is really good; lots of good wrestling, pushing the right talent, and stories that are based around wrestling and titles, as opposed to who's getting fired every week. I've loathed TNA since Hogan and Bischoff came aboard, but now it's been great to watch again and it's far more entertaining than RAW and esp. SD.|

|I don't get the "I won't watch it because of the hype" thing (11) | Posted on June 18, 2012, 8:55 a.m.|
|Yes that's all very well and good but you're forgetting that Jim Carrey wasn't even nominated for an Oscar, therefore you are wrong. Sorry bub.|
One of the biggest oversights ever. Plus, a lack of Academy love doesn't diminish what someone accomplishes; Scorcese didn't win an Oscar until The Departed, did that mean that Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, and Goodfellas were all for naught?
|I don't get the "I won't watch it because of the hype" thing (5) | Posted on June 18, 2012, 1:22 a.m.|
|^That's the thing; I don't think it's a good mindset to go in thinking "This is one of the best X ever", I think that's an opinion you yourself should or should not come up with after. If you come in with that notion, then, short of God himself appearing, how can it ever live up to that when you don't even know yet WHY people think such high things of a particular movie?|
I'll give an example before I go to bed and forget it: If you were someone who had never seen The Truman Show, and you see me post that Carrey gives one of the best "Everyman" performances ever, what are you going to picture before you see it? If it's a one-of-thebest-ever of this kind of performance, your expectations will be sky-high, but you won't really know why before you see it. One may think of grandiose speeches and grandiose-r acting. And when you don't get that, when you don't get exactly what you were expecting...it's going to feel like a letdown.
It's a great performance because Carrey gives the movie exactly what it needs for it to work. We sense the uneasiness, the doubts, the suck-it-up-but-something-is-wrong lurking underneath in every scene, but it's never overplayed. And when we see the "show" cruelly manipulate him, we sympathize, not because the the script outright asks for it (at least until we see the Natasha McElhone character later), but because Carrey, under Weir's direction, has walked the line throughout the movie of signaling his worries without overwhelming everything else, that we know how powerful that feeling is that's gnawing at Truman, even when that world scrambles to quell his fears. It doesn't sound like much in text, and if you saw that movie for the first time after this post and kept it mind, you could be underwhelmed. But blotting out all the noise and hype, when you immerse yourself in the film and start to understand how this character the way Carrey plays it is the type of person that the entire world would feel affectionate to, then you understand how great the performance is, and that is an understanding that doesn't come until you see the nuances build up for yourself. You will hopefully see the "why", but not until you actually see it.

|I don't mean the people who are not interested in Movie X to begin with, due to not liking the genre, actor, whatever, that's fine.|
But the mindset of "I really want to see it, but I don't ever want to because of the hype". I think that's really...odd.
Look, if you really want to see it, see it. See it with your own mind and form what YOU think about it. Here's the thing about movies people say "I love this movie, one of the greatest x-movies ever"; that's a reaction that comes from multiple viewings (unless, for most of the internet, it's The Dark Knight). I love, love, LOVE "Goodfellas", but it didn't become my favorite movie overnight. It started with, "Wow, what a really great, absorbing, fascinating movie by Scorcese." Then I saw it again another time and was equally captivated again and was like "This movie, I like it; ANOTHER! (viewing)" and smashed the nearest cup, and so forth. A level of adoration builds with time, but the basic foundation starts with "Is it good?" and that's the type of consensus you should start with going in, but tune out the various "hype" from there.
I'll give you a video-game example: Shadow of the Colossus. People love this f***** game. It's Exhibit A when people want to argue that games are art (my viewpoint: I don't care. They're games). It changed the way some look at the medium forever. Some folks think it's one of the greatest games ever, some think it's THE greatest game ever. So of course I wanted to play it to see for myself.
Was it transcendent art to me? No. Was it one of the greatest games ever in my book? No. Did that stop me from thinking it was a damn well-made and ambitious game? No. I really like SOTC. Despite its flaws, it's still a gaming experience I really enjoyed. Why would I hold the fact that it wasn't the greatest game ever against it if I still had a great time? I just don't see the point of holding ridiculously high standards in order to NOT enjoy something.
I mean, there must be movies you really cherish that other people won't hold it in such high regard but can still enjoy nonetheless? I think The Truman Show is a masterpiece of filmmaking, but if I know a friend who won't think the same, will that stop me from recommending it to him anyway? No, because at the end of the day, it's a movie I'd think this hypothetical person would enjoy, even if not to the extent I do. I think you can still like something and tune out whatever "hype" is coming its way.
This is probably rambling and incoherent, but I'm just befuddled when someone says "I want to see The Godfather, but there's no way it could live up to the hype." And that doesn't make it worth seeing? A lot of people like it. You probably will. And maybe you never come back to it again or you come back to it every year like I do. But it all starts with "Did you enjoy it?" Why is "everyone really loves this film" feel like such a huge barrier for some to not see a film? Wouldn't it be the reverse, like "everyone seems to hate this film, maybe I should be cautious?"
I'm just saying, I think you shouldn't deprive yourself of a movie you'll more than likely enjoy just because it may not be as life-altering as it was for other people, that's all.
I dunno. *insert random movie quote*
