Well, my answer to his, "these movies are obscure..." was a "not if you watch horror and thrillers.." made him delete his comments.

....and he unfriended me.

 

 

Me so sad. 

post #8953 of 12500

Just found the thread you're referring to.

 

Oh man, he's so sensitive!

post #8954 of 12500

I know, right? If he had done that to anyone else, he'd have received a verbal pounding. Me? Yeah, I'm polite but damn, you start assuming I don't know a goddamn thing; especially when it comes to horror films, you test my patience.

He doesn't like Deep Blue Sea or Lake Placid? Stay away from that character, he's likely on some Interpol surveillance list.

He commented that he walked out of Deep Blue Sea. Whatevs, dude. Your taste in films is so refined

 

I walked out of Species. Who cares? Whenever someone posts something about that movie or any movie I, personally, didn't like, I don't go onto their threads with a "you watch this, instead". 

post #8957 of 12500
Walking out of Deep Blue Sea? If you can't get enjoyment out of flicks such as those, I don't wanna be your friend in the first place!


I liked Species more than Deep Blue Sea frown.gif

..but not Species 2..

Everything from Event Horizon to Juon and Shutter (a Thai horror film). Movies, mind you, I've seen and have posted about. 

 

I did not ask for recommendations and I never ever do that to anyone else unless they're asking. This guy feels the need to do this every time I post about a movie. 

 

I held my tongue until he posted one single line comment after another, "Brotherhood of the Wolves"...."Ginger Snaps"....and so on. I finally post, "Dude. I've SEEN MOVIES..."

 

I like to start discussions and that's often what happens when I post about a movie. But this guy? He feels the need, every time, to post what he "thinks" are "the best" (<-his words often used to describe whatever movie he posts about). He'll also post his displeasure in my viewing choices (like when I went through a recent B-movie monster run starting with Deep Blue Sea and Lake Placid). 

 

GEEZUS FUCKING CHRIST. 

 

 

Ugh. Sometimes I get exuberant (or as others refer to it, "drunk") and engage in such behavior, but usually I prefer to discuss the movies that said person has mentioned to have a discussion, not just a list. 

 

 

All that said, if you haven't checked out the recent HP Lovecraft Historical Society adaptation of Call of the Chthulhu, it's a fucking blast.

And I'll second it. I didn't care as much for their treatment of "The Whisperer In Darkness," but their Call of Cthulhu is absolutely aces.

Third the Call of Cthulu recommendation. It even comes across (mostly) as an authentic Silent Movie.

Guarantee he made a whiny post after he did it, too.

Well, to the extent that something shot digitally instead of shot on nitrocellulose and then stored in the back room of a theater for seventy or eighty years can, but certainly an A for effort.

Tired Shit, Millennials.

The term applies to anyone who is anywhere from 18 to 35 years old. I object to being lumped into a category of people that also includes those that weren't even alive when the Fifth Element was in theaters. Whatever happened to lumping generations into the decade in which they were born?

I am and will always think of myself as a child of the 1980s.
post #8967 of 12500

Generational brackets are weird. There's no science behind it, gap is usually about 20 years though.

 

The whinging snowflake millenial stereotype  is more likely to be aimed at University age and just entering the workforce age, so there's an argument they're actually early Gen Z.

 

Generation X - Mid 60's - Early 80's

Generation Y (Millenials) - Early 80's - Early 2000's

Generation Z - Mid 2000's - Present

 

Gen X is cynical and deeply mistrusting of government and business.

 

Gen Y is digitally native, having grown up with the internet. This has made the latter half way more socially responsive, thanks in part to group think from social media reinforcing their belief systems.

 

From what I can gather from my reading, Gen Z are risk averse teetotallers, but the data is just coming in. :)

 

I'm certainly in the Gen X bracket, but I like to consider myself a digital native, but I acknowledge I was into computers (and had one in the household) before it became common. I trust Facebook and Google about as far as I can throw them though.

post #8968 of 12500
So as someone born in the mid-'80s who is cynical and deeply mistrusting of government and business, and a computer enthusiast whose first impulse is to smack anybody who uses the term "digitally native" upside the head, I'm a...?

Yeah, that stuff's horseshit.
post #8969 of 12500

I think the lines are way too blurry once we get into the 80's. I was born less than two weeks into 1980, and I have yet to fit into any classification. According to journals and experts, I am Gen X. I am a "child of baby boomers". Further, my Psychology class taught me that Gen X is 1969-1980. I hear some people say that Gen X carries halfway into the 80s, and I hear some people say Gen X is through 1979. I find things equally in common with someone born in 1969 as I do with someone born in 1990 -- although that is damn close to the cut-off. I am hesitant to classify anyone at this point. I can say that kids born in the mid 90s can be particularly asinine based on my experience.

 

I think I've decided what I am. I am the "Hot Dog Generation"; a little bit of everything.

post #8970 of 12500

I'm the STAR WARS generation.  

post #8971 of 12500
I'm the "Moonraker" Generation.
post #8972 of 12500
I guess that makes me part of the GoldenEye generation.

Sigh.
post #8973 of 12500
You're whatever the Bond movie was that came out during the year of your birth. If no Bond movie came out that year, you're not really a person.
post #8974 of 12500
Ah, then I'm not part of the GoldenEye generation!

I'm nothing!
post #8975 of 12500
Still better than being a Millennial.
post #8976 of 12500

I guess I'm not a person. Cool. 

post #8977 of 12500
Not in my America!
post #8978 of 12500

According to 1 Bradito 8:22, neither am I a person.

post #8979 of 12500
OK, you're whoever was Bond during the bulk of the decade you were born.

I'm a Moorelennial.
post #8980 of 12500

If we're going by year, then I'm gonna consider myself a LAZENBY generation (I was born in 1970, dammit).  I can live with that.

post #8981 of 12500
I was born in 1982.

The first Bond I remember seeing was either Octopussy or License to Kill.

If we are strictly going by those movies themselves and I had to choose... Give me Dalton.

But obviously Moore had some doozies with Live and Let Die, Moonraker etc..

My brother and I had this generational debate just last month. Him being born in 1973, there is little room for debate. My year however...

He was my main male influence growing up, I think I will always relate more to Gen Xers. Whether it be through film, tv or music.
post #8982 of 12500
No, Judas, you're a Moorelennial! I just amended the rules.

Nice. I'm a Daltonian.

He's the best Bond, anyway.

post #8984 of 12500

But I want to be a LAZBIEN!

 

Dammit, Brad.  You're no fun.

post #8985 of 12500

I was born between Octopussy and A View To A Kill. Pussyview Generation?

 

The only thing Roger Moore was in in 1984 was "The Naked Face", as Dr. Judd Stevens.

 

More is still alive and well at age 88, holy shite.

 

As it relates to technology and stuff, I think I was born at a cool time. I've been able to see everything evolve from the later stages of it's origins to where it is now. The first games I remember seeing were NES-era. By '90 or so, my dad had me playing educational games like Math Blaster and stuff on his PC, then I moved onto shareware game floppy disks from Radio Shack.

 

He was into all the early dial-up online services like Prodigy and Compuserve (man, that shit was weird!), and of course AOL. I distinctly remember companies gradually transitioning from hosting their stuff on custom AOL pages to 'regular' Internet pages by mid-1997. Then in 2001, I was playing Counter-Strike on broadband cable internet.

 

In the mid-90s, if someone told me we'd all be carrying around palm-sized full power computers with video capability, games, and access to most of the information in the world, I would think that was the coolest shit ever. I would not have imagined millions of people drooling down their chin as they idly swipe and jab at the screen for the dopamine rush of another Facebook like or retweet, like they are trapped in a never-ending zoological experiment.

 

(*Not saying I'm above the banal pleasures of the dopamine rush. Gotta have those Rep points.)

Damn. I forgot about Never Say Never Again.. 3 Bonds in 4 years. (Yes, even though NSNA is an UNofficial Bond, still)

I have only seen the jetpack scene...
