Second, MD is a total movie snob. I think he's accepted that he's a music snob but I think he just assumes he has a "good" taste in movies and doesn't like crappy movies. Let me tell you, MD doesn't know the first thing about why people watch movies. MD sees movies as art that needs to stand up to some artsy-fartsy standards. While seeing a truly artful film is an amazing experience, seeing a crappy movie that makes us laugh, feel good, or remember the good ol' times is alright as well. MD forgets that people love movies for lots of different reasons and decides to denigrate others' movie tastes from his little ivory tower.
It's time to put a few cracks in that tower. MD says, "maybe SS should move to Bedford and stop dragging down Arlington's top film list?" Oh, I'm not going anywhere! Not only that, but I'm going to drag Arlington's movie respectability down further than you could even conceive, MD. For as long as I can come up with these movies (please help me readers be commenting with suggestions). I'm going to put these movies on my Netfilx que and inundate Arlington with their badness. I'm not going to even watch them. I'll just put them on my que, receive them, and send them back to get the next one. Hopefully I can game the NYTimes little stat sheet to give Arlington an interesting top ten.
In the mean time here's my starting list in no particular order. I've linked them all.
HAHAHAHAH [evil laugh].
- Underworld: Rise of the Lycans
- Race to Witch Mountain
- Spy Kids
- Agent Cody Banks
- Fever Pitch (I contend this is MD's secret favorite movie.)
- Guys and Balls (I've actually seen this. ML and I thought it would just be about soccer when we rented it; not so.)
- Confessions of a Shopaholic
- Paul Blart: Mall Cop (filmed near where I work)
