    Default The Matrix vs Ghostbusters

    May vs Corbyn is a foregone conclusion, let's have a really substantive argument.

    Or let's just watch Luka and Craner have one.

    Two different kinds of nerds here... Improv Nerds and Comic Book Nerds.

    You should've made this a poll, innit. Matrix is a fine film but it's got to be Ghostbusters for me.

    difference between me and craner can be placed inside a nutshell
    its the opposition between pleasure principle and reality principle

    Didn't Craner ditch the reality principle at Cardiff Zizi's?

    Trying to think what my favourite film is now without sounding/being pretentious

    So I don't want to say Wild Strawberries even tho it is probably - it's pretentious and sentimental and cynical and bleak and occasionally funny - LIKE ME!

    The movie/s I've watched most in my life are probably the lord of the rings movies which I have a deep and 80% ironic affection for. There's about 20% of genuinely thrilling and scary bits in the trilogy and the rest is all horribly pompous and/or twee guff and that's the stuff I enjoy because of years of pisstaking and injokes between me and various friends I've forced to watch them again and again and again. I saw it in a cinema not long ago (literally all three back to back) and it was really weird cos all the nerds there were GENUINELY laughing at the terrible jokes and slapstick.
