I think sometimes anticlimactic endings are best. It's like they punch you in the face and you never get the satisfaction of hitting them back. It makes you want more.

Aside from the mild joy that short scene provided I thought that movie was worthless.

I dont know about the other two but Raising Arizona is rather funny. Possibly the best Nick Cage movie there is?

Well I thought the scene in the car where Pitt was pitifully trying to act cool and spy-serious to Malkovitch was the best, a perfect scene illustrating this movie as one of Pitts best performances.
But being an idiot and asking for someone to prove how a movie is good is retarded, and I think you know that. You don't like it, and nobody can explain it into being good stupid.

It was a joke genius. Its more a question of what parts he thought were good. Perhaps he could explain a scene he enjoyed in a way that I could understand WHY he liked it where as I did not. Not that it would change my mind into liking it. I was really looking forward to this but when I finally watched it the movie was a huge let down. Although I will admit lots of the actors in it did a great job on their characters; but sadly it still sucked.

Like I said before, I favor characters over plot. I like how the characters interacted with each other, and I like how the characters' interactions with one another mostly stemmed from complete misunderstandings and because of it shitty things happened that didn't need to happen.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say most people who didn't like the movie found it pointless plotwise, and you're right. But it wasn't about the plot for me.

I'm with you Milpool. I liked Burn After Reading. I thought it was a clever showing of people too stupid to know what they were getting themselves into getting in way over their head, and hilarity ensued.

Burn After Reading was a fun movie. It's not their best, but I still like it a lot and the characters were almost all fantastic. Hell, I've watched it more than once just because I love seeing John Malkovich get increasingly angry throughout the film:

"Oh, yes. I know very well what you represent. You represent the idiocy of today. You're in league with that moronic woman. You are part of a league of morons. Oh, yes. You see, you're one of the morons I've been fighting my whole life. My whole fucking life. But guess what? Today, I win."

Fucking priceless.

Also, to those of you who still haven't seen their film, "The Hudsucker Proxy"... what the hell are you waiting for!?

I'm waiting for my damn video store to get it in because Netflix suspended my account for DVDs I returned not reaching them.

Someone somewhere (allegedly) must have a nice effing collection of Asian extreme and documentary DVDs

Ok, just watched Hudsucker Proxy tonight. Still don't know what to think. I feel like I've been dragged through a mini-ordeal.

Can't really say more without danger of someone going all YOU JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND THE NUANCES on me.

I don't think there are many nuances to it. It's pretty straightforward, except for near the end when time's stopped.

Even that was pretty straightforward. All of the symbolism was of the heavy-handed variety, or at least the vast majority of it was.

One thing that got me was how very much Tim Robbins looked and sounded exactly like the character Bill Paxton plays in Big Love. They could be twins. And the building reminded me I haven't played Grim Fandango in forever.

During some stretches, I felt like I was watching a high school play. And yes, I realize that the whole caricature-y period feel was on purpose.



Some funny parts, though. "You know...for kids!"
