Next you'll be saying Invention of Lying is better than Battlefield Earth...
Don't be annoyed when Ricky annoys you. It will only make him stronger.

People aren't wrong in saying it was terrible. You're not wrong for thinking it was passable. It's opinions. Yours is not more valid because you take film studies.

Didn't say anyones opinion was more valid, I was just pointing out that, looking at it from a directorial position, it's not the worst film ever made and that people seem to over-react to it.

I brought up the film studies thing because Wetknee said he'd done film studies too. I was just adding to the discussion. Which is what this is, a discussion. No-one's trying to win here, we're exchanging thoughts on a subject, with no obvious goal at the end. Nothing I say is going to change anyones mind, I know that, so does everyone else. Same goes for the other users on this forum, but there's nothing wrong with havin' a chat.

Yeesh!

Huh?

That's like me diagnosing my cat with AIDS when the vet says it's just a cold. By your token my opinion would be just as valid as someone who has studied the subject in depth.

I hate when people say shit like that. Some people's opinions are bollocks, simple as that.

Well, be fair Anti, it's not quite the same. Just because I study films, it doesn't mean my opinion of a film is more valid than someone elses. Opinions are opinions, in terms of the vet analogy (nice one by the way, a cat with AIDs, I cracked up :D), it's not down to a matter of opinion, that's an in depth study with tests.

Why should I believe you? I have 15 years of experience in being a cunt on the internet. My message-board opinion therefore trumps yours.

Guys seriously.

Some people like some films, other people don't. It's all based on personal opinion. It's not a fact that TIOL was shit, it's also not a fact that it wasn't shit. It's an opinion.

I'll keep it short incase you're all aware of this already, or incase it turns out its bullshit, but Karl is supposed to be in it too as Dereks carer. They did a scene in the car pretty much unscripted where Karl is driving him somewhere and Ricky was sat in the back just pissing him off, sounds about right.

Oh and Karl has a silly wig, I think it was one of those U shaped hair styles like when you're just bald on the top.

This is all being discussed here:
