  • I have not yet seen TWBB. I can get it at a library, but it's a 20-25 minute walk.

    worth it?

      Why would you waste time by walking there. Start running there right now.

        As for your comment about me, I actually hadn't neg repped him at all. But guess what you are getting?

        Furthermore, child? Really? Now you really sound like an idiot.
        If I took the rep bar as seriously as you do, I might care. Only two neg reps? May I have another? Once you're done, you can give me another. Then another if you'd like. Go crazy. Go apeshit. I don't give a ****.

        Salvation was better than the first. Not the second. Just to clarify, but that's simply a matter of opinion. There's something else to neg rep me for (once again... just for the **** of it. It's been a while.). Have fun with this post because I'm not done.

        As far as the subtitles detracting from the actors/acting... well, I take it you have a problem with foreign film comprehension since you can't comprehend something in black & white right there on your computer screen, and this is without that mumbo jumbo language in the background when you're watching a movie in a language you can't begin to comprehend, but maybe you have something in the background distracting you? Such as some x-rated material? I've taken a ganders through the hot chick thread and I seen that you're very active you bad boy. I don't know. Anyway, you should read it again. I pretty much explain the issue right in that post.

        I think you're the worst, but I don't cry about it every time you attempt to force feed stupid opinions about worthless subjects. "Ryans Reynolds FTW!!!!"

        No, he's no FTW, whatever that means, but his next movie... I heard he's in a ******* casket for the entire thing, which is fitting since that's where his career has been.

        "APS: Star Trek rules!!!
        BB: No it doesn't.
        APS: You're full of EPIC FAIL. Neg rep!!!!! Now, I'm going to spank it to some girl on youtube that isn't even that hot. Matter of fact, she's like 15."

        That's what I read every time you try to talk to me.

        • I'm sorry, but if you are watching a movie with foreign cultures or are set in other countries, and you expect them all to speak English in order to appease you, then you're an idiot.

          You honestly cannot read subtitles and pay attention to acting at the same time?

          And if you are going to watch a movie set in France, or Germany, or wherever, and apparently have the attention span of a gnat that you can't read and watch at the same time, then learn another ******* language besides English. Not everything has to be in English to be good.

          Honest to ******* god how are some people allowed to exist.

            I would say yes, without question, but it's very slow paced. If that's not you're kind of movie, avoid it.

            The Hurt Locker was incredible. Some jaw-dropping set pieces and some classic-in-the-making action scenes. Passes Apocalypse Now as the second best war movie ever made (still a distant second to the untouchable Saving Private Ryan). Renner was worthy of a Globe nomination (I'm guessing Morgan Freeman was the undeserving one to snub him, but I haven't seen it yet so I can't say he was snubbed).

            • I'm sure foreign movies aren't for everyone, and I won't hate on people for staying away from them because they don't want to read.. but you are missing some really, really good movies.

                I have no problems with subtitles. What I do have a problem with is so much idiocy in one post. Lets have a look, shall we?

                I get what Dreadlocks is saying... to an extent. I think he's just going overboard with it. The trailer was misleading. By the time the movie ended, who didn't think, "There wasn't much of the basterds?" The trailer makes you believe it's all about them, and maybe the title as well... I don't know, I'm just sayin,' but I know I was disappointed with how little screen time Pitt had. I can see how that would ruin a movie for someone. You go in expecting one thing and getting something completely different? Who would want to go into a movie expecting The Hurt Locker and then getting Lions for Lambs? You think you're gonna be disappointed? You think you might come on a forum such as this and vent that disappointment?

                I hate subtitles in movies and can't stand them, especially movies which are overwritten with dialogue (the whole 25 minute conversation outside the theater served no purpose to the movie... QT was basically boasting about his film knowledge... that no one cared to hear about during the middle of one of his movies). Does anyone watch foreign movies here on a regular basis? Since no one hardly ever brings them up, I'm go to answer with a no (that is, if the forum doesn't mind me speaking for them, but if someone does... too ******* bad). I'm big on acting and I like to watch the nuances of a performance (the whole point of great acting). I don't like reading the lines at the bottom of the screen while missing the delivery of the lines. It makes the acting worthless and greatly detracts from the impact of the characters and the overall importance of the story.

                With that said, I thought, as I stated in this thread when the movie hit theaters, Inglorious Basterds was phenomenal. One of the best of the year and one of Tarantino's best.

                I don't even understand the backlash to his post. People don't like subtitles. It's a matter of taste and has nothing to do with Michael Bay movies or the intellectual capacity of the viewer. He stated more than enough reasons why the movie turned him off. Really no need to bash him (I'm sure APS negative rep'd you since you have difference of opinion, but that child is a tool and he probably used that reassuring internet lingo in doing so, i.e. "EPIC FAIL").
                What does the bold say? Come on, you can do it...Thats right! You got it! IT SAYS YOU ARE A ******* MORON! You contradict yourself in your last 2 posts you ******* tool. Unlike you, whose mind is clearly incapable of reading a single line of dialogue while simultaneously watching the person saying, I can actually watch the film and not feel that reading detracts from the performance of the actor onscreen. And while I am certainly not the most liked person on this board, I think its well known that your posts are not only universally despised, but in fact dreaded. You do usually manage to one-up your own douchebaggery in each subsequent post though, so congratulations on accomplishing something with your meaningless existence.

                Also, are you trying to flirt with me or something? What does ANYTHING Ive posted in the Hot Chick Thread have to do with whats posted in this thread? Fact of the matter is, you have terrible taste, and attempting vainly to attack my taste in women won't change that.

                Finally, while Im sure the image of me spanking it to a 15 year old turns you on, I think its best you refrain from mentioning it to me, as it is rather disconcerting.


                Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand **** you. I feel better.

                  I'm not reading the rest of your post. You have no idea what you're talking about.

                  Quote me where I said I expect Spanish people to be talking in English to appease me. Read what I wrote.

                  Funny that you guys are talking about subtitles and you can't even comprehend these posts.

                  Quote a post and respond to that. Don't go off on some tangent that has not been discussed. You're getting confused and very upset over nothing.

                    I contradicted myself by telling you to go back and read what I said? You asked how it detracts and told you how it detracts in the first post. Did you want me to copy and paste the same thing from the previous post I just made? If you keep bolding that sentence, you can see where I said it greatly detracts from the characters and impact of the story...

                    I never made a comment to contradict anything lol, or is it, LULZ?

                    It's my opinion, and I know you have issues with opinions that don't reflect your own. You can read something at the bottom of the screen and watch the acting at the same time... that's impressive, which is probably why it doesn't bother you.

                    Look at me, I have no problem with that.

                      You honestly can't read and watch what's on screen like 6 inches above it?

                      And again, if you think the subtitles ruins the delivery, LEARN THE LANGUAGE IT'S IN. Just because it's in a different language doesn't mean the delivery is ruined. It just means that you can't be bothered to appreciate anything in a language other than English.

                      Before you come back with "I never said that," you clearly said that subtitles make the acting worthless and takes away from the character. For someone self proclaiming himself as a giant fan and aficionado of acting, you really help yourself out there when you say that because lines are in a different language and I can't understand it then the acting is ruined.

                      Also, please don't tell me the scene "outside the theater" isn't the scene where they are waiting in the entrance and the actress has to pass off the 3 guys as Italian. Because if it is, you completely missed the point if you thought it was pointless.

                      • It doesnt detract from the acting, it just means you arent intelligent enough to read a single line of dialogue and the acting on screen at the same time.

                        Stop posting immediately, you are a terror to us all.

                          I still don't understand how any scene in a language other than English ruins the scene/acting?

                          Please, BB or anyone else, explain to me how a scene in a different language ruins the language. Unless you are saying that the little words physically written across the bottom ruin a scene, I'd really like to know the reasoning behind this.

                          • After a little while of reading subtitles, you hardly notice that you're reading them.

                              He never makes any sense, and his awful taste is an insult to the movie industry. Just try to ignore him.

                              A scene in another language doesn't detract from the acting at all. Expressions, emotions, and talent are universal. A badly delivered line is still badly delivered whether it is in English, French, Italian, German, or any other language. Good acting is good acting, regardless of language. Hes literally too stupid to focus on two things at once.
