I loved Avatar, because the point of the movie is that you get to see this fantasy world in 3D and it was an amazing fantasy world. But it would have been a better movie if it had been in the format...

You didn't offend me, the movie did. And as it is an excellent movie, I don't begrudge you recommending it. I might even recommend it myself, though with a disclaimer or two.

On your recommendation (and because you mentioned Asperger's Syndrome) I watched Mary and Max. I did find it incredibly offensive, but because it was so dramatic, original and well-animated I have to...

Yes, but that doesn't make me an autist. I've met an actual autist who's considered a mild case, and there's little resemblance between us.

I very much doubt they've been dubbed. But you can probably find subtitles on the internet somewhere.

I searched through the thread a bit to back up what you're saying. There's something to it, but we both liked District 9, Juno and The Sopranos.

I hated that movie. Not for any political reasons- I just thought the animation was hideous. It looked like what might be cutscenes in a cel-shaded game. I wonder whether I might have enjoyed it with...

Cute but ultimately pointless, since the movie never finds any compelling reason why people with Asperger's Syndrome should date people without. I felt equal amounts of pity for both characters...

You two don't know what you're talking about. Both WALL•E and Up were absolutely brilliant. It sounds like you just have some bias against chase scenes.

No, I think that's fair. The movie exists to praise an aspect of the American legal system. It never loses sight of that.

Last night a family I'm friendly with invited me over to watch 12 angry men with them. It was excellent. It's a very old (black-and-white) movie about the jury system. It's very simple, but that...

Up is yet another Pixar masterpiece. It's an adventure movie which has a sort of anti-adventure-movie message, believe it or not. Which makes it pretty subversive, I think. Come to think of it, most...

Nothing happened to Romulus, not in this timeline. That's just backstory for the characters. Vulcan I'll give you, that was a surprising plot point.
Anyway, I don't mean that literally nothing at...

I also love Star Trek: Voyager, and I would warn Jelena to keep her hopes down when watching DS9. It mostly stinks. It's a much more character-driven show than the other Star Treks, and each of those...
