Pulp Fiction   13 (59.1%)
A Clockwork Orange   9 (40.9%)

Either Pulp Fiction is weaker than expected or Clockwork Orange is stronger. Probably a combination of both but failing to clear 60% in Round 1 is unimpressive for the game that received the second highest amount of nominations. We'll see if Pulp Fiction can redeem itself in the coming rounds but this division boasts tough movies such as The Shawshank Redemption, There Will Be Blood and The Matrix

Casablanca, though my favorite Bogart film is The Caine Mutiny.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

I loathed Goodfellas almost each and every moment I had to endure watching that cast of boring and revolting characters. I really wanted them all to assume room temperature within about 30 minutes into the film. If I were not with other people, I would have walked out of the theater.

You saw it in the theater? OLD! Wink

Seriously though, all the unlikable characters was kind of the point. Similiar to Pulp Fiction.

Everytime I hear some imbecile suggest that the Republican party should be a pale imitation of the liberal Democrats, I remember the following dialogue:

Ugarte: Rick, think of all the poor devils who can't meet Renault's price. I get it for them for half. Is that so... parasitic?
Rick: I don't mind a parasite. I object to a cut-rate one.

I saw Casablanca in the theater. We have a theater that does classic movies during the summer. It was ok for an older movie. It has a fairly interesting premise,  but I didn't find the writing or the acting to be all that great. Not a bad movie, but way overrated

How the fuck is Casablanca winning in a landslide?

Granted Goodfellas is slightly overrated, and I'd even say The Departed is better, but STILL.

Do you not like old movies in general, or just this one?

Also, I will not accept that picture as payment; one leg is missing.

I don't like old movies. I mostly watch quirky indie films that scene kids. Old movies do not apply.
