: I just thought it was humorous. I get a kick out of reading different people's takes on virtually anything, particularly if they differ considerably with my opinions. I don't have to agree with them to find what they write interesting or even funny. Like the Cooper Occasional Paper theorizing that Natty Bumppo was actually a half-breed - I still don't agree with the conclusions, but I thought the author did a really excellent job of presenting her theory and supporting evidence. And it gave me an opportunity to hear what somebody else thinks. Somehow I still adhere to the old fashioned idea that it is a good idea to allow people to differ in their opinions.
: End of attempts to generate discussions.
What?? Why?? I enjoyed reading the review, even if I thought he was way off base! I also enjoyed calling him on some of his thoughts. I'm eagerly awaiting to see how many others agree or disagree with his points of view. Don't you DARE end your attempts to generate discussions. Just cuz *I* thought he was loony, doesn't mean he isn't entitled to voice his viewpoints on the movie. I suspect there are folks out there who HATE the movie, and possibly for many of the reasons he listed.
I was in NO way trying to argue with YOU...just rebutting his particular opinions. And the review IS humorous...just not my idea of accurate. So what? Nobody died and made me Queen here or anywhere else!
Come on and post some more stuff like that. It's good for us to read other people's ideas.
