The Transporter was not at all meant to be a realistic movie. It was an Action movie. I.e. a movie containing scenes involving action, so as to keep the audience interested. I'm the same way about some movies, but The Transporter for me was just a fun movie to watch, not something that irked me like a bug in my ass. :/

Yay, fun movies

I like to not be so much of a movie snob that it keeps me from enjoying stupid movies and being entertained b/c that's what movies are supposed to do. Yes, those are alot of stupid movies but they are fun and for some people, a break from thinking is nice

And honestly, I don't see much difference from Transporter and almost every single other cheesy action flick I've ever seen.

If you rent every Friday the 13th films, Nightmare on Elm Street films and the first three Halloween, you'll have 20 movies.

Agreed. Ninjavenom revealed too much.

It's like guys talking about how they jerk off, and one of them says he has his dog lick peanut butter off his nuts. Too far, man. Just too far.

Ok, there's a difference between action movies and shit. If you want action that doesn't involve "I wanna be a ninja!" style fights, get one of the old ahnuld movies or aliens. Predator kicks total ass and commando's another classic ahnuld movie.

I'll agree with proto though, shit like xxx is incredibly fun to laugh at. I saw it with a few friends and that's all we did. There's enough make fun of in there to last hours.

"Holy shit, was the french movie were kids bring up sexual abuse accusations on their dad? or some shit like that....I saw that a long time ago....and I remeber it being hilarious. i am a sick disturbed person though."

It's Danish. And it is funny in a fucked up way.

Good action movies = Die Hard, Aliens, The Terminator

Crappy action movies, but still enjoyable if thought of as comedies = XXX, The Transporter, anything by Jerry Bruckenheimer

See the difference here is that the top three movies, while not exactly "thinking man's films" don't REQUIRE you to turn off your brain to accept what's going on. The bottom three examples do, or else you're just going to find them too hilarious to take seriously. There is nothing funny about the first three examples that isn't intentionally meant to be.

"anything by Jerry Bruckenheimer"

I still give those guys credit for The Rock. It was a pretty solid action film, especially since it had Ed Harris who is always great.

Dammit Snake, you're right. "The Rock" was pretty good.

I don't care if you've ever seen the movie, or have seen it 100 times, but "Orgazmo" is still my favourite movie of all time.

Also, to sound like a total dork, either of the Harry Potter movies are alright.
