if the Ewoks were to speak English, I would have to go with them.

But they didnt and the Gungans did, so it is the Gungans who must be eradicated....

(great geek thread btw)

Sure, but I don't rent those types of movies.

I fact the only reasons I even saw those movies were

1. Brother rented it and isisted it was good
2. On TV, so bad it was funny, so I couldn't turn it off
3. Loved it as a kid, grew to hate it appropriately
4. Given as a gift
5. Friend rented it for a party
6. Figured it would be awesome due to the original trilogy
7. See #3
8. Figured it couldn't possibly be as bad aas Ep I (sort of right)
9. Got suckered in by the werewolves and vampire angle
10. Brother rented it, many friends said it was good

Was much happier for it as well.

Also surprised to see Chasing Amy on your list as its considerred one of Smith;s best but then again, I haven't seen it yet.
I still say that Clerks is Smith's masterpiece. Chasing Amy is probably my least favorite of his films. The first two scenes are absolutely hysterical, but the rest of it just wasn't that great. I think that I was maybe expecting something more like Clerks or Mallrats though.

By the way MoP, the new avatar rules!

I've only seen Clerks (my favourite) and Dogma (still fairly good). Still need to see Mallrats, Chasing Amy and the Jay & Silent Bob Movies (my interest in them is in that order). Clerks has by far the greatest retio of quality film vs. crappy acting I've ever seen. Some of the scenes made me almost want to cringe with how bad the actors were, but I was too busy laughing to bother.

And yeah, I do like my new avy. Have to thank LeeIs for animating it though. Poor teenagers such as myself can't afford good .gif programs unfortunately.

If I didn't love TPM as a kid, it'd probably be on my top 10 worst. When watching it a couple weeks ago, I didn't like it that much, but the whole going from slavery to a Jedi thing really intrigued me, and it helps me stand it more. My top 10 worst:

1.Master of Disguise
2.Lost in Space
3.Jimmy Neutron: Whatever the hell follows it(I wouldn't have gone near this movie if it wasn't for the girlfriend)
4.Superstar
5.Club Dread
6.Chasing Amy
7.Elf
8.XXX(I don't know why, but I can't stand the movie)
9.Van Helsing
10.The Ladies Man



Archie is NOT ****ING MR WEATHERBEE!!!!

HM: 3 Ninjas: High Noon at Mega Mountain

Sad fact: I own 3,4,6,7 and the HM.

Edit: Jaws: The Revenge seriously needed a boost up the list.
There is no way Battlefield Earth could be better than Anchorman. At least Anchorman had Steve Carrell.

Once again never saw Battlefield Earth (thankfully).

And yeah, if not for Carrell Anchorman would've slipped to a much lower position.

I would like to extend to you an invitation to the pants party.

Man, Steve Carrell is awesome. I can't wait to see the 40 Year Old Virgin. That looks to be awesome.

I believe its getting an 8.0 rating on IMDB so far (at around 150 votes) which is amazing for a comedy. I'll probably end up seeing it on DVD but it looks promising.

Edit: 8.0 at 188 while Red-Eye also looks to be half decent sitting at 7.6 after 178 votes.

Has it even come out yet? I thought it comes out tomorrow(that's when it does in Regina, anyway).

I'd go see it tomorrow, as I'm in Regina, but considering I'll have many more opportunities to see it, and haven't seen Episode III yet, there's no comparison. Can't wait to see that, though.

I does, I'm guessing the votes are from foreign releases (which can be earlier) or advance screenings.

Episode III was nothing special, the plot was more well developped so it was at least decent, but Lucas still tried to have too much fun with CGI.

Well, hopefully it's as good as the people on the other side of the pond say it is.

I've got nothing but high expectations for Episode III. I liked Episode II, and I've heard this one's much better. We'll see, though.

Also, about that last line, I hope Lucas has become less CGI-happy, or otherwise, I fear he'll go back and remake the original trilogy, which would suck. Even with the original trilogy, he really went to work in the digitally remastered versions. I recently bought the box set of those movies, and I didn't really notice how CGI-happy he got till the end of RotJ. Many backgrounds were very modern, and at the end, where Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Yoda are standing around, he has Hayden Christiansen in there as Anakin.
