    G-S-T Quick 5 – Movies Better Enjoyed On ‘MUTE’

    You know, as the old saying goes, you just “can’t please all the people all of the time”.  Well as film fans, it seems that no matter what goes into a film we all have something to gripe about.  It could be dialogue, a casting decision, the story line, music, the director and so on, but there’s bound to be one element keeping us from liking every film.  So I’ve comprised a rather personal and unique topic to post on the site.  The list below highlights the 5 films I love to look at but, as you’ll find out because of one reason or another, I am not entirely fond…

    G-S-T Quick 5 – Movies I've Warmed Up To…

    OK, here I am, humbly walking on the ground where I, like broken glass, laid out all the bad things I said about these movies. In the past I might have either not been in the right mindset for these films or maybe not been able to comprehend what they were trying to do. While not all of these are masterpieces (some fans would argue that one of them is) the films on this list now get my approval. I now feel much more of a connection with these films and honestly enjoy quite a bit whereas before I would say flat-out “I hated it”. Ah, the folly of youth… ——————————————————————————————————————————————— Boiler…

    G-S-T Quick 5 – Culturally Loved Movies That We Just Hate

    A few weeks ago, Cinematical ran a post entitled “Movies that everyone seems to love but you” and that got me thinking.  For years, I’ve had a grocery list of films that I just can’t get into, just don’t understand, or outright dislike.  I have been thinking of these films from time to time but thanks to the post, I (after talking with Rob and Pete) have a great reason to consolidate these films. There is one common element in each of the films listed below that is a prime contributor making these films “not our cup of tea”, and that’s probably hype.  If people always say, “that film is awesome!!“, and have said…

    Does ‘Nostalgia’ Make a Movie Better Than It Is?

    After seeing Blade Runner for the first time about 6 years ago, I have been wondering ever since “why the world is infatuated with Blade Runner?” I’ll admit it looks cool but I don’t think it’s that great a movie. Sure, it gets high points for style and imagery but the ending alone killed it for me. Such an interesting story and all that build up for what…an unimpressive ending that just ends like they couldn’t think of anything better. That’s my personal opinion but still I wonder, and more to the point of my post – Do people like it now just because they saw it as a kid?? Where…
