    Flipping through my dvds, I decided to introduce a new category: relatively good movies. What is it ? Movies that should have sucked, but didn't, movies that delivered more than expected, movies that are trashy but still good:

    Barb Wire. No, seriously. Taking into account that this movie had to live with Pamela Anderson as lead actress, it was pretty darn good. Not absolute good, but certainly not as crappy as one would have thought.

    Pieces of April. Ok, I admit, the trailer sounded like comedy and I would have watched a movie about dentists at work eating live snails if it only had Katie Holmes starring. But it turned out to be more than the facade and a really good movie, although everything but comedy.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Has anyone here seen Troll 2?It's a great story about goblins (Not trolls), from Nilbog, When we watched it, my friends and myself, it was rated the 6th worst movie of all time. EDIT :: Olé, it's now second worst!!

    AI I wasn't too fond of.

    I thought AI was pretty boring. I think the most memorable scene was "don't drop me David, I'll break..." ... "ouch.".

    The kids name was David, right?

    I'm a woman. And I can be a man during the commercial breaks.

    Beat that.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    We have three kinds of movie:

    Good movie, but makes you sad.
    Bad movie and makes you sad.
    Good movie and make you feel happy and or satisfied..

    And I only like the last type.

    I saw Kubrik's "eyes wide shot". But I didn't understand the movie's context and purpose very well.

    Indiana Jones was an enjoying movie too.

    "Die Br&#252;cke" ( German for The Bridge ), probably one of the best anti-war movies ever.
    I think I saw that movie.

    No one can really beat that. But why really pretending to be a man when you are not?

    [edit]
    Or vice-versa. (Though it may be useful sometimes if you know how to do it)
