I Don't Care!

So, I had a short discussion with my HLM today and he expressed to me that he didn't like the new movie 'American Dreamz' that is now in theatres. He told me this because I had gone to see it and told him that I thought it was very good. Now, he wasn't mad about my opinion but he is going to use it as his basis for seeing the movie so he can blame me... and that is fine. However, it got me thinking. The conclusion that I have come up with is "I don't care." Let me elaborate.

I don't care if you didn't like the movie I recommended because truthfully, I liked it or I wouldn't have recommended it to you. I don't care if the book that I raved about was "not your thing", even though you gave it a try. I don't care that you wasted $13.99 on a cd that I really liked. Stated Plainly, I don't care.

Maybe I am in the minority, but in today's world, too many people gauge things off of other peoples opinions. Girls go shopping in packs so they can get approval on what to wear. The only time I ever do that is if I am buying clothes for work, and that's only because apparently a Spider-Man tee shirt doesn't go with dress pants.

I will also say that listening to critics is a pet peeve of mine that I find myself guilty of. While I don't mind a little help in trying to determine if the next Jennifer Aniston movie is worth my time, a movie is meant to be enjoyed. I don't even know what the hell cinematography is. I am going to be entertained, and if that involves seeing two hot girls play "Battle Shits" then I am ok with that.

Now, I don't want to sound conceited, or condescending in this little rant but if I do, well I don't care. And for the record, even though Thomas doesn't think so, Hellboy was a rocking movie.

That is all,

HELLBOY STONEHAND!!!!!! Um... yeah.. I am pretty sure that I am not the only one who thought Hellboy sucked and so I would like everyone who has seen it to post a comment on this post to say if they liked it or thought that it was ASS like I did!

I think Hellboy was awesome. Abe Sapien was rocking. I wish I had gills. And Selma Blair with fire powers is hot. Pun Intended.

Duncan Fegredo said...

That movie was action packed. I am so excited they are making a sequal. I loved the story. Hell, Nazis and a huge rock fist.

Thomas said...

Wow... man Trin... you are so sad that you are making people up to say how cool Hellboy is... I will say this, you pitiful man, just because a film is a good representation of a comic book (which, I aggree that Hellboy is a good comic book) that doesn't make it a good film. Just with the professor-guy's acting along in the flashback scenes to WWII are evidence enough of the awfulness of this movie! Worst fake accent ever!

I dont know what you are talking about. Mike and Duncan are real people. You can google them.

Thomas said...

Correction: Not making people up but posting under the names of people who created the comic book is even worse than making up people! LLLAAAAAAMMMMMMEEEEE!!!

I thought that Hellboy was good enough to watch the one time I watched it.

I thought that Hellboy was a good movie as well. But maybe I was just brainwashed by my boyfriend.
