I did watch you link prior to posting my own.

I thought they disgraced James Horner's The Mask of Zorro score. The trailer reeks of small budget, poorly executed indie "I'm going against the grain and made a unwatchable film." air. And I don't like Black's affectatious Spanish accent. In short, what I saw in the trailer was bad acting, bad filmmaking, attempts at slapstick and inane comedy--all those things that I hate and you love about film.

Regarding The Weatherman the whole point of the film is that Michael Caine's character knew what it takes to make a family work but also knew that his son had to figure it out on his own. Nicolas Cage's character was too stupid to see why he failed and at the end of the film was left unchanged. I think The Weatherman is an important film warning how not to live your life.

You're pissed over The Fountain because you had no clue what to expect, despite the fact that I urged you to see Requiem for a Dream first. Had you done this, you would have known going in what kind of a filmmaker Aronofsky is and would have been prepared for an introspective film that fit together perfectly and could only be expressed as the conglomeration of the parts as no one idea could be discussed without referencing the others in the film. It is for this reason that I never could properly review the film because for me, it was a rotating triangle built upon the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle.

Sometimes a man wears stretchy-pants.

I do not. I do not think its important at all, for any reason other than I stated. There is no guaranteed recipe for success. Look at your life - you've seen the film. You know what not to do. Yet your life still sucks? What went wrong? Exactly.

I don't have time for such antics.

I'm not married, I don't have children and I'm not neglecting my family to improve my career.

It's not an antic, it's an art form. This is why no one cares what you say about film. You're irrelevant.

Some people smear their own fecal matter on canvas and call it art. I do not. This does not make me irrelevant. Its called an opinion, and truly the only ones who are close-minded are those who do not value another's.

I was the one who was asked to co-blog film reviews, not you. Why do you think that might be?

Likely because you find importance in such an endeavor.

Let me get this straight, you think that I was asked to write not based on previous work or abilities but rather because of how important I ranked such an endeavor? Interesting.

Precisely. For example, a Democrat comes across your writing and is impressed by your deft skill. They offer you a writing job to promote Obama and write just as passionately about his proposed policies in order to garner support behind them. The salary would be triple you annual income. Do you take the job?

You said that the causation of the offer was my priorities, now you introduce an outside broker. You're full of shit.

It was merely an example. I forgot that in the imperfect, literal world in which filters your every thought and action, examples were forbidden. Nonetheless, it remains accurate, and as always, I rarely full of shit.

Jesus used parables. You must think him a babbling idiot. To draw from one of his examples, please remove the 7-masted schooner from your own ass before attempting to pluck the splinter from mine.

I don't know what fuels your unfettered antagonism, but perhaps you should focus your ire there? I would be angry if I were as continuously grumpy as you always seems to be.

Stress less, dude.

This isn't about stressing less. This is about you not being an arrogant prick.

Whatever. Go back and re-read your words. You haven't said anything.
