Challenge set, Drinker

Bathroom Reader accused Mr. Drinker of having terrible taste in movies. Seeing I am the only person around that has actually gone to the movies with Drinker, I feel the need to step into this fray before it escalates and is featured on CNN as the latest blog controversy.

I understand where BR gets the idea that Drinker has bad taste in movies. I must dispute the label, though. It is not that Drinker has bad taste, he is just a Cinematic Optimist. Drinker sees the best in even the worst of movies.

Some examples; I saw Hulk, Daredevil and Constatine with Drinker. All three of these movies are just bad (as in bad, bad, bad, bad). I walked out of the theatres with the "um, not so much" feeling. Drinker liked them. He backed his thumbs-up by pointing to one scene or one aspect that was, in fact, done well. I could not disagree with the micro part of the movies he liked. He then extrapolates this out into the movie being "good" or, at worst, "not bad".

I need more before a movie is raised from the BADlands. Drinker sees the best in people, and movies and I can't fault the guy for it. I thought Fantastic Four was a BAD movie but had some good stuff in it. I will see it again next week with Drinker. I promise he will like the movie.

What we need now is for Drinker to post the 10 worst movies he's ever seen AND the 10 movies he loved that nobody else did. Challenge set, Drinker...

it's times like these that I just want to give you a big 'ol hug and take you to see "Weekend at Bernie's 2" at the dollar theatre. Spare no expense for my brother Hof.

I think he'd prefer Blue Lagoon 2!

You didn't like the Hulk? Really? I'm crushed... I thought it was great!

Oh, God, Andy, please say you are kidding. The ending, the contrived father storyline, the undead Nolte....

Please say you are kidding or I may call Child Services...

I'm not kidding. I loved it! Was it the best dramatic story line ever... of course not. But the effects are awesome and the Incredible Hulk is one of my favorite comics.

Gosh, I really didn't look very closely at the story line or plot.... I just thought it was cool that the Hulk smashed up some stuff!

I'm kinda like that, but I'll still admit when a movie sucks. Like Bewitched, for example...the movie flat out sucked. But there were some pretty funny moments in it, and the acting and cinematography were pretty good.

I'm like drinker in a few ways. I really love horror movies. I find it hard to dislike them no matter how bad they are. I also will go to see the films of stars I like no matter how bad they are. I read something recently that said the league of extraordinary gentlemen and hellboy were horrible. I loved them, I bought them too. I'm going to buy Constantine on DVD. You can't stop me - don't try. I'm also an effects junkie, I'll go just to see the special effects.

I'll leave the rest of my comments on my blog if you want more :)
