sigdiamond2000: Generally what people mean when they say "pretentious" is "I don't get it."
yequalsy: Some of that stuff should come with a potential for bleeding eyeballs warning.
mekki: Just put Terrence Malick's whole filmography down on the list and be done with it.
someonelse: I know it's cool to hate "Tree of Life," but I liked it. I liked the dreamlike sensation it created. And "Badlands" is a favorite of mine. If you can't appreciate "Badlands," I don't even want to know you.
redmid17: mekki: Just put Terrence Malick's whole filmography down on the list and be done with it.For some reason, I was picturing Malcom McDowell (he played someone named Terrance in entourage), so I had to double check what Terrence Malick looked like. The unintentional hilarity of this picture just made my day:
Mateorocks: Not one Gwenyth Paltrow movie?
Gunny Highway: It is time for the word "pretentious" to join "epic" in the Cupboard of Words We Need to Stop Using for Awhile.
LeroyBourne: I don't know if I'd call it pretentious, but I found Inland Empire quite infuriating.
IdBeCrazyIf: Yeah I don't think you can get more pretentious then Tree of LifeI wanted to punch some upscale New Yorker after watching that just to correct the Karma in the universe
redmid17: Not only have I not seen any of these movies, I haven't even heard of any of them.I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing or neither.
EyeballKid: yequalsy: Some of that stuff should come with a potential for bleeding eyeballs warning.[1.bp.blogspot.com image 320x213]I think this film came with one./I want you to know...
kab: Pretentious around here apparently = something other than Snakes on a Plane.
Hebalo: I watched "The Master" last night. I'm a big fan of PT Anderson, but good lord that was a big stinky piece of bland nothing.
someonelse: LeroyBourne: I don't know if I'd call it pretentious, but I found Inland Empire quite infuriating.That thing was sheer torture.
Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Also, stunning that David Lynch didn't make the list. He's pretentious out the wazoo. Just insufferable. Hell, the DVD of Mullholland Drive has no chapter breaks because you're supposed to watch the whole thing, beginning to end, with no breaks. The thing would be unwatchable if not for the lesbians.
Yelnik: Waking Life. The list is not complete without Waking Life.It's not even a film, it's a series of disconnected monologues. Calling it "a snooze" is an insult to the fine institution of sleep.
Trail of Dead: Crash. Now THAT was some pretentious bullshiat right there. The actual definition of the word. I don't even want to hate-fark that pretentious POS.
