Catholic priests if you under 12 years of age and male.

Also stay away from suicide bombers, they'll blow any argument you present to pieces.

2. People who tell you to watch any movie made before 1977 "because it's a part of history". Movies are meant for entertainment. If you watch an old piece of shit, you won't be entertained. Don't waste your time and watch newer movies with actual plots, acting and special effects. And most of all AVOID ALL OLD COMEDIES. Stay away from anything created before ghostbusters, and even then, BE CAREFUL.

The first bit of logic is kinda dumb, but your statement is just as dumb, in my opinion.

#. Don't listen to 13 year old children on Newgrounds.

All they want you to do is show them your tits, or dick, because 4chan corrupted them, and then lead them here, they are trying to cleanse their souls, but it is only making Newgrounds worse. Be your own person, do not fall victim to these evil fucking kids.


Yeah, whatever.

But a lot of people enjoy watching films that are culturally and historically significant.

I'm really sorry but "Dr. Strangelove" is not funny or good. "2001: A Space Odyssey" is borderline retarded. Anyone who watches this movie and thinks is genius was either born 70 years ago or is a pretentious douche.
THAT MOVIE HAS A 15 MINUTE INTRO OF PEOPLE IN MONKEY SUITS SCREAMING! HOLY SHIT.

It's not always easy to differenciate nostalgia from the actual worth of a movie, but luckily there's people like me, who haven't seen shit like King Kong when it came out... in 1933... and can tell you wether is sucks or not based on objective standards by which people actually judge movies when they go see them in theaters or at home with friends.

For instance, here's a con against King Kong: the stop motion sucked. I win.

Depends what you find entertaining.

When I suggest things to people, I don't bank on the fact that they have weird unique interests. Like, if someone asks me "hey what's fun to do in Montreal?", I don't assume they love stamp-collecting and direct them to the nearest stamp museum.

In the same way, people who are asked "hey what's a good movie" and reply "Oh Citizen Kane" are liars. LIARS I SAY.


I fail to see how spending ninety minutes watching something as shallow as Ghostbusters can be any less of a waste of time than watching something that actually has some depth like, for example, Jean-Luc Godard's "Weekend" made in 1967.

If you watch a movie solely for the story, I suggest you start reading novels instead.

I tend to avoid listening to the advice of extremely religious people, not out of bias or prejudice but rationality.
When somebody says "God gives us diseases because of our lifestyle and to punish us" I doubt they'll have anything worthwhile or useful to say...

You know pox, the more I read your posts about not being ignorant or not being a douchebag or whatever you happen to be preaching about at the time, the more I realize that you're a fucking tool, man.

You sit there and type out these posts and responses and all I see from you is "I'M RIGHT AND MY OPINION IS THE ONLY ONE THAT MATTERS! WHAT'S THIS? YOU DISAGREE? FUCK YOU, I WIN, FOREVER."

I mean, I see you here right now talking about these old movies and all you're saying is that the old movies suck because they aren't the movies of today. Oh, I'm sorry that someone didn't think to invent time travel so that we could go back in time and give CGI to those guys who made the original Dracula, jeez.

I sometimes wonder if the glass on your little bubble of ignorance and assholery has fogged over and you can't see the rest of the world around you.

Films that 'suck' don't tend to have any significance because they didn't make any kind of impact when they were originally released, so the vast majority of older films that are readily available today are ones that have survived the wrath of the common movie-goer. There are exceptions however, for example the film "I Am Cuba".

I'm really sorry but "Dr. Strangelove" is not funny or good. "2001: A Space Odyssey" is borderline retarded.

I never said otherwise, it's all a matter of opjnion.

In the same way, people who are asked "hey what's a good movie" and reply "Oh Citizen Kane" are liars. LIARS I SAY.

If they genuinely liked it for whatever reason, how are they lying?

If you watch a movie solely for the story, I suggest you start reading novels instead.

I don't watch films solely for the stories. I never said I did. I watch many kinds of films for various reasons, and as such I understand that other people watch films for all kinds of reasons.

You shouldn't listen to anyone that begins sentences with "Like Ronald Reagan said...", "What annoys me the most about black people...", "So I read this Isaac Asimov book...", "I like The Smiths" or "Like my grandma used to say...".

Yeah.

Also you shouldn't listen to people who base their whole life on the Bible. And you shouldn't listen to people younger than you. Or older by only 2 years. Also you shouldn't listen to people of the opposite sex. Unless they are gay.

That's about it for now.

1. Actually, some of those books are pretty interesting. But, I guess NG'ers wouldn't understand 'cause most of them can barely read.
2. Old movies are usually funner, because they have plots. That's something that happens rarely nowadays.
3. Stay away from the IDIOTS who have that attitude. Anyone who's smart and has that attitude is completely safe.
4. This is the only one that I agree with. RUN AWAY.

That's not my point. My point is that people take old shitburgers that maybe impressed kids 50 years ago and pretend like it's still relevant today.

Or in Newgrounds term: it's like making a "the 50 best flashes ever" and putting Scrotum the Puppy and Street Life near the top because they were awesome in 2000. Anyone who does that clearly fails to understand the purpose of making "best ever" lists and are instead making "what movies would I put in a museum: the list".

And I accuse movie critics of the exact same sin. Look at any top whatever lists and it is LITTERED with old movies that, quite plainly, SUCK. I've given up on watching them because I am tired of getting burned again and again by how bad these movies are by modern standards.

Move on people.
