Every year, you have one very obscure indie feature scoring very big at the box-office and this movie was one of those. Since then, it has developed some extreme reactions. Indeed, apparently, most of the people either thought it was hilarious while the rest really despised it. With this in mind, I was rather curious to check the damned thing. Eventually, I enjoyed it, even though it was really no... read more

I didn’t Quite dislike this movie, but I could only watch twenty minutes at a time, not thirty. (I watched slightly larger chunks near the end so it’d be more like, round numbers, you know. Plus, it’s always more exciting to finish something up.) Well, I guess for a lot of people this is like the correct masculine version of being a teenager, right. “Hollywood is such shite; if only there... read more

Well, I guess for a lot of people this is like the correct masculine version of being a teenager, right. “Hollywood is such shite; if only there were fewer girls and more disgusting boys lol.” Which is kinda almost cool; the only thing is, while I like girls (I must NOT be a straight guy lol—loopy face smilie), boys are…. Different. It’s amazing to me that a gender that so dominates society can be so, different, from what’s normal, you know….
