I like Dude, Where's My Car?

That's not meant to be a question, as in, me asking if I like Dude, Where's My Car or me saying in disbelief that I like Dude, Where's My Car, it's just that Dude, Where's My Car has that question mark at the end of it that causes problems when composing a statement such as "I like Dude, Where's My Car?" 

Anyway, I like it. 

Ah!  Thank you for helping me answer the question of which work of fiction would be so idiotic that it wouldn't even really count as a book!  I now know that the answer is a novelization of Dude, Where's My Car?.

It's not quite the same thing, but I refuse to watch any of the American Pie movies. Not because I have some holier-than-thou opinion of teen sex comedies, but simply because when someone says "Remember in American Pie..." I enjoy being able to say "I've never seen it." "I've never seen American Pie" has become the new "I don't watch television." (I don't watch TV either, but actually saying it sounds way too pretensious.)

The American Pie films not only lowered the bar for American cinema they actually weakened the very foundations of our society. They were that powerful!

Well, I've also categorically refused to watch Quentin Tarantino movies.  I tried watching Reservoir Dogs.  I really did.  But I found I got more enjoyment out of reading the opinion page in my newspaper.  The whole "It's edited together out of order" thing didn't strike me as being artistic so much as it did unnecessarily confusing and lazy.  I mean, it doesn't take a genius to put a movie together out of order.  Since most movies are filmed out of order, all you have to do is wait until you've shot everything, then just tape all the scenes together in the order that you got them back from the lab, and BOOM!  You've got a movie.  Of course, I blame post-modernism.  Post-modernism has given people license to think that being confusing and impossible to understand is the same thing as being deep and artistic.  To me, that attitude just breeds contempt for your audience.  It's an attitude that says "If you don't like this, it's because you don't understand it because you're obviously too stupid to understand something as complex as this movie."  The point being, I don't watch Quentin Tarantino movies.

You've never watched a Quentin Tarantino film in your life.

Tarantino is one of the best directors working today. Every one of his films is brilliant.

I'm definitely looking forward to Grind House (a double feature by Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, who is another one of the best directors working today) -- it looks so freaking cool. 8)

I like Quentin Tarantino movies, but I need to disagree with your assessment.  He is not so great that everything he touches is gold.  Example, the Kill Bill movies were good but bastardly overrated.  And even with the movies I like, there's still much better stuff out there.  So all I ask is that you don't suck his dick, you can like his movies, but don't be cyber-fellating him.

I thought I read somewhere about how some film school student went back and re-edited one of Tarantino's films so that it's in chronological order and realized that when you watch it in chronological order, it totally sucks.  That may have just been a dream I had, though.

Well - recutting the movie that way would /definitely/ alter his vision lol.

Interesting Tarantino story:

My friend (more of an acquaintance) goes to TJ to go crazy (not my thing) and he enters this shady lookin' strip club. Inside is Tarantino chillin' with some....well...prostitutes. They talk and have a good time, and that's that.

I've really enjoyed Tarantino's work up till now, but I think his perceived "greatness" will have to be judged for future generations.  His films seem to be so much a product of today that it's hard to see if they'll hold up in time.

I loved Kill Bill. I don't think it was overrated in any way.

I'm not trying to "cyber-fellate" Mr. Tarantino. I'm just saying what I feel, as I have always done and always will do. Please don't try to tell me what to think and what not to think. Saying that you're a fan of one's movies isn't dick-sucking.

The $240 dollars worth of pudding is an obscure reference to the MTV show "The State" which featured several of the people from Reno 911, Wet Hot American Summer, etc.  It's from a skit about two guys named Barry and Levon, who are these two 70's swinger types who like to sit on things.  One time they sat on $240 dollars worth of pudding.  And they both do a kind of Barry White-esque "Awww yeah" a lot. 

Youtube "Barry and Levon" and I'm sure you'll find it.  Heh.
