Also agree with Rocky 4, but Deviation will object even though he hasn't seen it and refuses too, the swine.


One day you will realise how wrong you are, and you will forgive yourself. No good action, no matter how big it is, will be able to redeem you.


You are wrong my friend. Maybe you don't know what I'm talking about now, but believe me you will when it's over. You will when it's over




Deviation -> RE: Can't we all agree on... (11/10/2009 4:58:25 PM)

I think Die Hard is a great suggestion...........

Even jamesbondguy likes it.

We can all agree that John Williams is a very good film composer.


Not so fast. I think you may find a few fans of a certain Howard Shore theme to disagree. Afterall, he did the music for two of they're biggest enemies.[:D]

I would argue with you on how incredibly wrong you are. But this a thread about agreement, and our discussions wopuld be irrelevant.

Scott_ -> RE: Can't we all agree on... (11/10/2009 5:07:44 PM)

Does everybody like Blade Runner? The Good, The Bad and The Ugly? Alien? Oldboy?

I haven't heard really bad things about Oldboy actually. All say it's a fine film. I have read TGTBATU detractors though (and most of Leone's work) and from what I know, Blade Runner is as divisive as 2001 and The Fountain.

You haven't seen Rocky IV? You sicken me.




Deviation -> RE: Can't we all agree on... (11/10/2009 5:16:50 PM)

You saw Rocky 4? You sicken me.




Tech_Noir -> RE: Can't we all agree on... (11/10/2009 5:17:55 PM)

Battlefield Earth is a terrible film.

I've suffered enough with the first two and Balboa.




Olaf -> RE: Can't we all agree on... (11/10/2009 5:20:13 PM)

You of all people Dev, judging a film before you've seen it. You make me sad, Dev. You're better than this.




Deviation -> RE: Can't we all agree on... (11/10/2009 5:22:17 PM)

I don't think I ever said I hate it, I have no desire to watch it and potentially end up hating it. What's the point? PLus I only asked if it was as bad as the first.[:D]




Olaf -> RE: Can't we all agree on... (11/10/2009 5:23:37 PM)

But - but Dolph Lundgren!




Deviation -> RE: Can't we all agree on... (11/10/2009 5:29:27 PM)

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.


And wait, why can't we agree on an agreement thread? Are we that different these days. Screw relativism and modernity. We need a return to the Great Schemes!




krudler -> RE: Can't we all agree on... (11/10/2009 5:30:38 PM)

Toy Story, surely nobody can dislike it




Tech_Noir -> RE: Can't we all agree on... (11/10/2009 5:31:00 PM)

Darth Vader is a great villain.

AngryDude92 -> RE: Can't we all agree on... (11/10/2009 5:32:39 PM)

The Searchers comes to mind for this question.[:)]
Also Breathless, Se7en and There will be blood (as far as this forum goes)

I thought The Searchers all comes down to how much you can tolerate John Wayne. TWBB and Breathless no matter how awesome they are are hated by Micheal Bay loving philistines([:D]).

Seven is great though. And hopefully everybody thinks the same. On this forum cause I know someone who didn't like it.

And how is Toy Story bland?[:D] How?

I think most everyone on this forum all "like" a number of films. Its when we use the word "great" that there is a problem. Plus, lets face it, there are some people who are such fanboys that anything that others like as much or more then they're favorite is automatically shit.

And yes boys, we also have to take into account that many girls and woman just don't like the Die Hard's and Aliens of the world.

The two mentioned that I think meet all criteria so far are Raiders of the Lost Ark and Back to the Future. They really do have something for everyone. And yes Kazuya I've seen people call it a bit boring. But, I think thats probably more to do when its praised to the heavens. I'm guessing they probably still do at least like it.

And TESJ, I'm suprised you didn't put forth Empire. Yeah, yeah I know there are people who just don't like Star Wars. But..how many times do you hear the "except for Empire claim" made. Yes, I'm sure there are some fanboys of things that "say" they don't like it. But do they really even count?

*Edit* Well there goes Back to the Future.

But seriously, how can you hate Back to the Future?

I guess this maybe harder then I thought.


I was just kinda afraid that the anti-Star Wars hounds would be released [sm=scared04.gif] .
...A bit risky, I thought, but then again, how could anybody really hate it!?

I propose Taxi Driver as a likely candidate, or how about Psycho??

I find all Pixar films a little bland. [:D]

It's a really good film, but in terms alongside Cars it might be one of Pixar's less inventive and creative works. That said I am judging by the admiration I have for thier other films like The Incredibles, Monsters Inc., Wall-E, Ratatioulle and Finding Nemo.




swordsandsandals -> RE: Can't we all agree on... (11/10/2009 6:02:20 PM)

Whisper of the Heart. Even Gimli likes it.

Everyone should watch Up! It's incredible.




TheEmpireStrikesJack -> RE: Can't we all agree on... (11/10/2009 6:02:35 PM)

Obviously it appears that pretty much every Spielberg film has a few haters here, but what about Jurassic Park - who's got a problem with that??




Tech_Noir -> RE: Can't we all agree on... (11/10/2009 6:03:34 PM)

Titanic was successful.

Unfortunately, yes, I've encountered a few dissapointed viewers over time here.

EDIT: But only for Schindler, not Empire.
