>Antediluvian Priestess says:
"Your youngest sister is desperately in love with you?"<

A) I don't have a younger sister.

B) What's your problemo, Priestess?

C) Go watch this, part of the movie (and brother-sister relationship) you are castigating me for liking, and then tell me if you detect anything insestuous... or better yet, go WATCH THE WHOLE MOVE before considering voting it up or down:

D) read California Couple's comment about the movie. It is beautiful in every way. A modern day Chekhovian drama, with the most succulent photography of any movie in the last 40 years.

What you do not seem to understand thru all your hate, is that I am not voting against Ghost World because it is the worst movie here, I am voting against it because you seem to think Serendipity is the worst movie here. So I am voting against your bad taste.

I am voting for Serendipity because it is the movie I like most here.

At some point I would start voting against Ghost World anyway, as a movie about a self-centered, self-absorbed teen age girl who never seems to be able to her connect actions with their consequences is not what I would call the best movie here.

In reply to an earlier post on May 10, 2012 4:28:15 PM PDT
You mean connect her actions. Why all the bile over a romance movie?

I know, and it's about a man and a woman. This must go back to baseball outfits being a gay thing for a gang to wear.
That gang probably got confused by watching West Side Story.

Spank me for my mispelling.

Through my hate? Ok. Not sure where you get "hate" from, but whatever.

I thought 'Serendipity' was a gooey mess. Yes, I am voting it down because I think it is the worst movie on the list. I am not spite voting....well, at least I WASN'T spite voting. It's good to know that you ARE spite voting however, as evidenced by your comment "I am not voting against Ghost World because it is the worst movie here, I am voting against it because you seem to think Serendipity is the worst movie here. So I am voting against your bad taste."

It's funny. You even say yourself that I am voting it down because I don't like the film, yet then say you are voting down my favorite to spite me but STILL think you hold some moral high ground. Vote for whatever reason you want, it bothers me not and certainly doesn't raise my ire enough to get even close to "hate", but to claim some "rightness" about your methods is a joke.

I am voting for 'Ghost World' because it is the movie I like most here.
I am voting against 'Serendipity' because it is the movie I like the least.

You are voting for 'Serendipity' because it is the movie you like the most here.
You are voting against 'Ghost World' Not because you like it the least, but because *I* deem 'Serendipity' the worst film on the list.

Who's the one acting like a child?

>Re: "Gosford Park(Maybe The Only Altman I Like)"<

I hear ya Zeph. But have you seen '3 Sisters'? C. McGhee recently reviewed that as possibly the worst movie he's ever seen. And I countered saying it was the only Altman movie I wanted to re-see. It's a true like-it-or-loathe-it movie.

Minus2 Bridget
Plus Ghost World - because even if the main character is a self absorbed brat, the depiction of said self absorbed brat (who secretly has a kind heart) is spot on. The film, on all bases, is very good. Many films are about characters that are not saints, yet it is about the EXECUTION of the film that counts...to me at least...most of the time....if she was completely without any redeeming features then the film would be much flatter...but she's nice, deep down....

+ Ghost World -- best american movie here, by far.... it's not about identifying with the heroine, although she is an admirable person at the bottom of it all, and one of the finest characters of alienated youth caught on film or book.... this isn't moral instruction on how teen's should behave in an ideal environment, it's a realistic depiction of how they cope in a soul-crushing environment. As such, it's one of the best movies of it's sort; viva obscure 78RPM rebellion, old blues to new, leading a life of authenticity!

- Blow(s) -- by far the worst on this list, and my saying so ain't got nothing to do with anyone here voting it up.
