The Airing of Grievances

I gotta lot of problems with you people!

I gotta lot of problems with you people!

This year I’m only gonna air one grievance.

I am sick and tired of bad movies loaded up with special effects. SPEND SOME MONEY ON A GOOD SCRIPT!!!

The latest trend seems to be remakes of “B” movies with blockbuster special effects budgets. The movies weren’t that good in the first place! Sometimes they add new scenes in just so they can show off some multi-million dollar effects.

If you look at the really great movies in history, most of them didn’t spend a lot on special effects. Some had none at all.

End of rant.

This is an open thread.

    The movie preview that triggered this was for the Robocop remake.

      They’ve re-made “Godzilla” too… again.

      But remakes have always been lame. Last night Turner Classic Movies aired “The Shop Around the Corner” with Jimmy Stewart. Right after that they showed “In the Good Old Summertime” with Judy Garland and Van Johnson. The same dialogue most of the way through with a few songs thrown in because Judy Garland could sing. Fast forward and we have Meg Ryan in “You’ve Got Mail”. I suspect there are only be three plots that just keep getting recycled in Hollywood.

    Braided pit hair is kinda sexy, but a chick with Duck Dynasty in her drawers is a little too much.

    My biggest grievance is: where are the fucking flying cars? We were promised fucking flying cars. I want my fucking flying car. Bastards. Get your hopes up. Get you to dream big. And for what? A fucking boring Toyota.

    Ok, one grievance: I’m sick and tired of better-than-thou liberals/Obots condemning some Christians for being against homosexuality, while never being willing to verbalize the same loud condemnation for Muslims who would do much worse.

    They’ll also condemn Putin for his “disrespect” for gay rights…..

    but never, never, never condemn Muslim nations for same.

    Oh….and they DO realize that it was fundamentalist BLACK churches that stopped gay marriage in California, right? They’ll never speak out against that, lest they be called racists.

    It’s their selectiveness that speaks to their hypocrisy.
