I can't tell what you're rolling your eyes about anymore, Borys. Are you trying to do it ironically now?

About your last post but somehow there got 3 posts in between that.

GS-baiting in the Avatar thread was one thing, but now that it's spilling over into almost every thread in the Real Talk forum, it's getting...obnoxious.

Anybody who claims the last hour of Aliens is their favorite hour of cinema is just not that bright.  I'm pretty sure the last hour of Aliens isn't even James Cameron's favorite hour of a James Cameron movie.

I don't see why you feel the need to do this. You're letting a ton of personal attacks fly for no reason other than that I made a comment about some movie I happen to love.

I mean, why? You mention The Seven Samurai. Would it make you feel better if I told you that I watched and absolutely loved just about every Kurosawa movie when I was growing up, as well as some of Toshiro Mifune's other stuff, like the Mushashi Miyamoto trilogy? Should I point you to posts I've made on this very forum where I've said that The Godfather is my favorite film of all time? While the last half of Aliens might be my favorite single hour of cinema, I'd be the first to tell you that the first half of that film is a flawed mess.

Do you get some kind of personal satisfaction out of attacking me? Do you feel more intelligent belittling someone for liking a very well-reviewed, very popular and very influential movie?

I just don't see the point to all this.

The Musashi Miyamoto trilogy sucks, dude.  It's the Japanese equivalent of a lower-tier Cecil B. DeMille epic.

I think the only honorable thing to do at this point is for Green Shinobi to commit seppuku. Not only would it be the right thing to do, but it would go a long way towards erasing Ichirou's discontent over his extreme fondness for pop-cinema.

Because slitting open your belly and having your guts spill out is incredibly fucking painful but it doesn't kill you at once.  It's a mercy to have someone to cut your head off after you slit open your own stomach.

Green Shinobi, as a friend, I am going to let in you in on a little secret why it "feels" like everyone is picking on you:

Because you take everything too damned seriously.

Seriously, folks getting butthurt for being chastised about personal tastes and/or having their e-cred (answer: none of us really has any, save for Mandark) ruined is like catnip for the Internet. I mean, the chances of finding someone like you are slim. You are the chosen one.

So I'm annihilated because the final hour of Aliens is my personal favorite single hour of any movie?

Why on earth does anyone care about that anyway? What does it matter to you? Ichirou is acting like I just donkey-punched his mom, and for what? My personal taste? I love horror and action when they're done right. Aliens just does so many things right in my book, particularly in the second half. Who cares what I like? It's a fucking movie for Christ's sake.

You donkey-punched my mom too?! Fuck, dude, it's not like she killed your rabbit or something. :(
