Andy, I don't love films and TV. I am full of spite and vitriol. I love to criticize TV and films.
At first I though you said "Sprite and vitriol". And I was all like "wut you do with soda and acid? Gurl you crazy."

anywho, I love to watch movies only when I can choose when to watch. Things like Netflix are a lot more comfortable to me than a movie theater.

That being said I do hate watching dem new movies alone. They're so boring when you don't have a friend to screw around with and to make parodic impressions of characters with.

Though I find that I love movies and TV shows once I watch them. (See: Soul Eater :P)

Vitriol would make a great name for a soda brand. It would taste awful though.

And I also like to make noise and so on during movies when I'm with friends. If I don't then all of the witty and insightful comments that pop into my head disappear by the time the movie is over.

I only like other people watching a movie with me and talking to me if it's a comedy or light-hearted movie, otherwise stay the hell away from me. I roar and shed my human form to reveal Beelzebub himself if I am interrupted by a stupid comment by someone in the room.

Don't. Talk. To me. When I'm watching. A movie.

Whether it's in the cinema or at home with friends, I hate hate hate it when people talk over films. When I'm at home with friends, I don't say anything; instead, I mentally think of obscure ways to revel in their gruesome deaths. It's more becoming of me, I think. :D

I absolutely hate it when people try and talk to me while watching something. There are certain friends I no longer see movies with because of that. >_>

Tbh if I wanted to watch movies by myself I have literally 15 or so hours of free time to do that so when I watch movies I just goof off. Though usually I don't have anything to say so yeahhhhh

Oh, lord, Jon, forget what I said about you being Katharine Hepburn, you’re just some crazy Jigsaw-esque villain who needs to be stopped!

On second thought I would like to play a little game, Mr Cat Dog.

Are you secretly Jigsaw's apprentice? Because that's just aweeeesome

I...I have always had a soft spot for the first three Saw movies. When Amanda & Jigsaw died I gave up on the movies, but I kept on watching them anyway. I didn't expect anything above two stars, and to be honest, the first three aren't magnificent either, and I wasn't wrong in my expectations. I haven't bothered to see number seven in the series, though. I imagine sitting through that for an hour and a half would want to make me die in one of Jigsaw's mechanisms myself.

It's 3am, I was just drifting off into a nice sleep... and all of a sudden I thought "C&M DCC!" I was jolted awake and grabbed my phone, only to discover to my disgust that I have not posted here for five days. Ffffffff.

I'm glad I missed the classic movie discussion though, boring! Everything I know about Casablanca I learned from watching Gilmore Girls.

They've made seven Saw movies? sgsjghsgdf

If they could do that then why couldn't we have had, say, better adaptations of His Dark Materials (a.k.a. The Golden Compass and sequels) or the Narnia books? D;

I don't think Hollywood would allow such atheist 'propaganda' material (His Dark Materials did have its roots in atheism, right? I hope I haven't gotten the wrong series, oops) to be released in mainstream media, lol. Society would fall apart at the seams! Civilizations would crumble! Nicole Kidman!

I would say the Narnina movies are pretty awesome, rather different from the books at times, but they're still fun. The Golden Compass was...whoamama that movie had problems right from the start. I think the director even came out and pretty much disowned The Golden Compass now for what he feels was too much executive meddling thanks to the controversy over the book itself. It's something the studio should have been prepared for, but I think they just say a successful book series and wanted to capture some of that Harry Potter book to movie magic.

You know, I really don't know how successful that book series could have been. I had not even heard of it once before that movie happened, and I haven't heard of it once since.

No, you're right. That's the one.

I guess the Narnia movies weren't too bad. They just felt a little too CG-tastic for me. And I'm a little bitter they didn't do them all. Not as bitter at what they did with The Golden Compass, but with that at least I feel like they failed so completely I never had to get my hopes up that they might make more.

I am half disgusted and half retardedly excited for this news.

CBS is remaking The Brady Bunch! The twist? This time it's Bobby Brady, the youngest of the boys, who will be the divorced father who marries a lady who is bringing up three very lovely girls.

Now, logically I know this is going to be terrible. But I was a huge Brady Bunch fan as a kid and part of me thinks that with the right formula and the right modern twist which makes it not quite so happy-clappy, it could actually be a pretty entertaining train crash to watch! If this gets ordered to series, I will be tuning in so hard. I just don't know whether I'll be in it to laugh with it or at it lmao.

HERE IS THE NEWS REPORT

I've never seen a single episode of The Brady Bunch :(
But, I hope they make 5253524 references to the original father in the series being a homosexual in real life, lol.

The Brady Bunch was iconic! It was also terrible, but that's neither here nor there. You didn't miss much, but at the same time you missed everything.

Ugh, I know. Culture tends to die during any Olympics, and I don't want it to happen here as well. Indeed, it's probably time for a title change! :D

We can tough it out for another six days (at least, six days your time)! I imagine there'll be a bit of "well that was fun let's discuss it a bit more" talk afterwards, but six days and then the London 2012 Black Death will have left C&M for another four years.
We can do this, guys!!!!!!!!!!

Can we please temporarily turn this into the "I hate the Olympics" thread?

Ooh China is winning.

In all honesty apart from the 2008 Olympics (mostly because my grandparents were proud as heck to have them hosted in China) I have never followed them.

Though I do think baseball should be in the Olympics. We need to prove to the world how awesome we and Japan are at winning at life.

Edit: no, a better title: "MR CAT DOG SECRETLY HOSTED THE OLYMPICS (C&M DCC)"

Same here, as well as a brief bit of Gymnastics while at my grandparents. I feel bad though considering I may not see another olympics in my own country during my lifetime. Truth is I'm just not into sport as much as other people. I'm happier going out and doing things or chilling out in my room being musically creative and productive. This whole olympics thing just isn't on my priorities list.
