You're off on a new project having to do with your interests...Well and good.
I didn't really mean much of anything by what I wrote. They're just emotional reactions elicited by these movies for personal reasons. I never did finish watching VAST, and who knows, maybe I will and decide it's great.
It's also possible that it's as crappy in some objective sense as the first 27 minutes were for me. I don't know how I could ever prove that. I can say what I dislike about it, and it's more than its being devoid of content. I do not get in tune with all-wise teens who constantly emit what's supposed to be sharp talk. I don't like an actress without a good voice, one with a scratchy voice. I do not see why a conversation has to focus on a tape recorder. We got the point, she had one. Maybe all the characters introduced rather quickly will eventually play critical roles, but I do wonder if there wasn't a different way to do this.
I'm not a serious contributor here. I'm a total amateur, as I've said in the past. I like to bring new films to the Board's attention. I like to make lists, and I may as well share them. I used to write down comments on the movies, because there were so many I was forgetting them. Now I just do that when I have the impulse.
Your choices of words elude me. I do not "ADMIT" that the movies were lesser that I mentioned. I'm not granting or conceding anything whatsoever. I observed this. I presented it as known fact!
From what I can grasp, you thought I dismissed YOU because I dismissed the critical opinion of VAST. Not at all, you have your opinion, I have mine, the critics have theirs. It's simply a case where I disagree with them and you. How this relates to dismissing the expert class, Neil Gorsuch, or current events is way, way beyond what I said.
Are you still mad because I told you that you were wrong about white folks being clueless? I didn't bring the subject up, you did. And you didn't have to bring it up. You got miffed at being corrected on the name of Mr. Floyd. No, we're not all clueless about black folks. Sorry. Upset as you may be over current events, that doesn't mean you can say whatever you please and not sometimes expect some response from those who disagree with you.
Is anyone reading this thread but you and me? The gist of it is that you like the movie and I don't, plus I prefer old horror movies with movie stars I like, like Carradine, Zucco, Karloff, Lugosi, and I prefer the 50s sci-fi movies.
