Actually, when I still had my three-drawer DVD player (pre-Blu-Ray) I enjoyed many a solo, silent, sci-fi film days, it's just that, being female, no one believes me, da bastids...

That would be my preferable choice of movies to watch if I spent an entire day watching movies, Sci-fi films. My next choice would be comedy movies.

I spent the day watching films off Ebert's "Great Movies" list, as I recall. I had a goal of seeing all of them.

I never was able to watch "The Leopard" . . . bored me to tears within minutes.

Mine would be GOOD horror/supernatural thrillers...unfortunately a very narrow genre.

Most genres -- in literature, movies, and music -- are full of mostly garbage. It's the best that we all remember.

>Sigh< Unfortunately, you are correct. Dammit, I'd trade 50 of my 'mmneh' DVDs for one good one in that genre...

Is mmneh long-form for meh?

"Great [ ]" lists (fill in the blank) are notoriously tricky. I cringe when I see someone on IMDB with a list of the 1250 greatest dramas of all time--far too many. Top tens, on the other hand, are awfully restrictive.

The only top list I can think of that I thoroughly admire is Anthony Burgess, 99 Novels--his take on the best fiction in English from 1939 to 1984, when he published his list as a little book of essays. I've read something over half of the list, and find myself in about 85-90% agreement--which is pretty extraordinary. (The last time I went over the AFI 100 list, my agreement percentage was in the low 40s.) I commend it to the attention of anyone interested in modern fiction. Here is a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ninety-nine_Novels. In including a relatively high percentage of novels written outside the US and the UK, he shows comprehensiveness. In including several writers overlooked on such lists--notably Robertson Davies (the greatest novelist in English in the second half of the 20th century) and Kingley Amis, he shows outstanding taste.

MMNEH = Mighty Morphing Ninja Extraterrestrial Hillbillies, perhaps?

In reply to an earlier post on May 25, 2012 3:37:23 PM PDT
Yes, meh is simply the contracted spelling of mmneh. Try vocalizing it and you'll see it does sound like the long version.

In reply to an earlier post on May 26, 2012 9:25:21 AM PDT
So apparently my guess wasn't even close? Meh.

This word "meh" has puzzled me ever since I first saw it written in several threads on this forum. I have never seen or heard the word spoken in my life until I saw it here. Is it a Britishism or some new word teens and young adults have invented?

Cav: see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meh. It originates in The Simpsons.

Rock: What. A. Hoot.

I note that the only film that merited more than one line was Showgirls. And they missed the best line of all in that--remarkable script.

Hi Lucy...

I meant to go see it but could not make it. I definitely plan on seeing it this weekend. It looks like it will be pretty good.

I finally saw MIB III yesterday and really enjoyed it. It was great seeing Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones back together again on the big screen. Josh Brolin also did a great job as a young Agent K. The movie was a lot of zany fun.

Lucy, did you get your free promotional copy of the Weekly World News MIB III edition? They were giving them away at my local movie theater. I grabbed two copies. They're pretty funny and a great promotional tie-in. Here's a link to a site explaining more about it...

Anyway, great movie that I recommend to everybody. I give it two neuralyzers up.

I'm afraid that's not gonna happen (as you can see). We're Americans and historically, rebels. Tell us not to do something and we will most certainly do it anyway, it's just our nature. Damn I love this country! ;~)

I saw this on a You Tube video and thought it was pretty funny. It's the Heavy Metal Band Name Generator. You take the initials from your first and last names to come up with your bands title. My band name is "Iron Thorn". What's your band name?
