Oh, I didn't know Ben Sitller directed The Town. I'll make a note of that.

I don't know what to call you, but I think you may be a contrarian when it comes to movies- even moreso than Man of a Thousand Podcasts, Derek Coward.

Some of the movies you hated sound just like you're hating the response they recieved and you might have liked them in a vacuum, while other movies are most likely shit, but not the shit that you particularly like to get a whif of.

You liked some of the most mediocre or terribly criticized movies of 2010. I have barely seen any new movies, so maybe you're totally right and I'll be on your side, but I'm guessing not.

Man, for a guy who likes Christmas, you were screaming and pissed off at this beautiful Christmas tale.

Also, for a guy who loves God and his baby Jesus, I would think you would know when the second most important figure of your entire religion was born and how your people ripped off the pagans.

Maybe you should be reading The 99 instead.

Ben Stiller, Ben Affleck. It's all the same blandness.

It isn't the comprehensive list of bad movies of the year, it's my list of bad and good movies. And I don't base my movie opinions against hype and of the opinions of others.

Also, for a guy who loves God and his baby Jesus, I would think you would know blah blah blah


I didn't mention God and Jesus in this review. Nor was I speaking any other origin of Christmas. I was talking about Christmas as a secular holiday that it is today: Santa Claus, The Tree, Christmas carols, gift exchanging, and mainstream Christmas Specials.

What Christmas is today has little to do with the origins, be it Christian or Pagan. (well, The office Christmas party may nod to the Pagan debauchery once in a while.)

You did. You mentioned that no one knows when Jesus was really born.

Thoom said...

Yes, I said that to let the audience know I am aware December 25th isn't Jesus' birthdate, and further support my argument that I can separate the secular aspects of the Christmas holiday for public consumption.

Hype about Hanukkah is Christian hype, all the Jewish kids I knew didn't understand the big deal everyone else made about it.

War on Christmas was created by Christians who are trying to dim the the gift giving and bring back the Christ.

"Happy Holidays" is to generalize like a person saying, "How you doing?" "Merry Christmas" is a more personalized greeting like when a person says, "How's your cancer?" It's cause they know the person. So I don't know how you celebrate so, "Happy Holidays." If I know your preference then it's specified.

There are many different Clayfaces.

Don't the Kents know Batman is Bruce?

Why is it stupid for guys to take care of kids?

Maybe Clayface's henchman needs money? Owes money to loansharks or wants to buy his girl a Christmas present. If he was smart he wouldn't be henching.
