I think he means that, even though Ghostbusters is not a documentary, ghosts could still hypothetically exist. Or something.

Anyway, I remember a book I read several years ago written by a preacher whose soon allegedly had a near-death experience and went to heaven. Then he went on to claim that his son never actually flatlined in his surgery, so that obviously meant his son was as holy and pure as the prophet Elijah who ascended while still alive. It was ridiculous and insulting, but it’s sold as nonfiction and the kid got to play himself in his movie biopic IIRC.

Ranking the Star Wars films

Adopting a star system, because after another OT/ST watch-through I’ve decided I have too many ties for a straight list to be practical. No surprises here if you’ve paid any attention to my other posts; I haven’t radically shaken up my opinion on anything. I just think this reflects my feelings better than a proper ranking.

★★★★★
Star Wars
The Empire Strikes Back

★★★★
The Force Awakens
The Last Jedi

★★★
Return of the Jedi
Rogue One

★★
The Phantom Menace


Attack of the Clones
Revenge of the Sith

Almost exactly mine, but I include half-stars, putting TLJ at 4.5 and thusly above TFA, and both ROTJ and R1 at 3.5, but the rest are spot on.

If you need to B*tch about something... this is the place
Time

My mom is starting to talk about having just discovered 9/11 trutherism and she sounds super hyper and it almost sounds like she’s starting to believe this shit…

This arose as she flipped throigh channels and came across Schindler’s List and she started asking “why do people hate Jews? They’re just people!” I was in strong agreement of course because anti-semites are vile, until she took a hard turn to say “they aren’t like the Moosluhms who blow everything up. Hey, speaking of, did you know there are whole conspiracy theories around 9/11? I just found an article on it recently, like where was the plane in the Pentagon…” and it spiraled from there.

Ow.

I’m really loving everything I’ve seen from this movie so far.
Crazy how much I’ve been won over. Really lookin’ forward to this.

Samezies

Count me in, too.
I love it that it looks silly and goofy and just fun…
…and the s***storm of people complaining about that is going to be ten times worse than the fan division created by TLJ.

I was gonna say that I doubt that, but then again, I guess it could.

I’ve seen many people list Bride of Frankenstein as their favorite movie. You gave one of my favorite movies a 3 star rating, Lord of the Flies,

I gave the exact reasons for the missing star. The namesake of the picture is brushed over in a ten second shot that had no purpose.

It’s a beautiful shot that communicates the scene from the book without words. See? This is why arguing disagreements over art is so pointless. Ultimately, as far as I’m concerned I’m right and you’re wrong. And as far as you’re concerned, I’m wrong and you’re right.

The solution, of course, is to dub over that shot with Pumbaa from The Lion King.
