    He's what my grandmother would have referred to as smarmy.

    I reserve my hate for George Clooney. He's a douche plus his movies suck ass.

    Is it fucked up that I’ve never seen a movie with Daniel Day Lewis in it?

    I hate smug fucks like Clooney, Damon, and Julie Roberts, but From Dusk Till Dawn was a masterpiece.

    It’s not intentional really, just coincidence.

    He killed both of those movies for me.

    His style is just too over the top.

    So I’m watching Blazing Saddles and I just can’t see the humor. I can’t even fake a laugh. Maybe it’s because I just finished Airplane and few movies, if any, can match it laugh for laugh.

    By the third movie I was rooting for the Barnes character to kick the shit outta Danny boy. Such a whiny little twat.

    If you didn't grow up in the era and with the actors, it does lose a bit of its luster. I still think its fantastic, but oh so wrong. Nips watches it to get ready for his camping trips.

    Parts of it are hilarious. Yet some of the potty humor seems a bit forced.It was edgy at the time.Love the part where sheriff holds himself hostage.

    Your second sentence literally describes half the movie.

    I vaguely remember watching it but don't remember much of it. Same with Airplane. Never watched any of the Monty Python stuff either. Watched a lot of standup stuff younger, Eddie Murphy, Def Comedy Jam, Richard Pryor (on tape lol), etc. but I think it was mostly like Police Academy and Revenge of the Nerds that I remember being funny to me as a kid. Oh, and The Jerk. That shit cracked me up.
