Thread for those of us who are BEYOND HOPE

I just finished watching "Life is Beautiful" and I HATED it!

We are supposed to LOVE that movie, right? All "normal" people do, right?

I found if simplistic, overly-sentimental, shallow, and just plain annoying,

What's WRONG with me?

Anyone else out there beyond hope, like me?

Re: Thread for those of us who are BEYOND HOPE

Do you hate the Christmas special with Heat Miser and Snow Miser?

Cuz if you do, then you really do suck are totally beyond hope...

...otherwise, don't worry - you're fine.

I thought Life Is Beautiful was "okay" - nothing to feel any strong emotions about either way.

I don't know that one, but I really like the Grinch.

Grinch is cool, if you mean the cartoon version - not Jim Carrey.

Re: Thread for those of us who are BEYOND HOPE

Well, I found it boring and unrealistic.
My son chose it as one of the 6 films that he was to summarize for his AP European History class Summer assignment. But obviously is struck a cord with the 'Oscar' judges.

As long as you like a Xmas Carol and It's a Wonderful Life, you are OK.

Oh, for a second I thought you were saying Heat Miser and Snow Miser were unrealistic...

...and that would have meant WAR!!!

Yes, the Grinch cartoon.

I rarely watch Jim Carrey... that's another reason I'm BEYOND HOPE, don't like Jim Carrey and the though of having to sit through a Robin Williams movie scares the daylights out of me. My hairdresser was talking about how much she loves RW (I guess he has a new movie coming out ) and I really couldn't think of anything to say so I said nothing at all.

The Heat Miser thing was cute.

Now I'm almost mad about it. How insulting to think we are supposed to buy into that load of pre-fabricated crap.

I remember RB jumping around when he won the Oscar, and I didn't know what to think since I hadn't seen the film. Now I think that a bunch of other people in the audience were really annoyed that Oscar-winning had been reduced to this level.

I suppose it would be VERY easy to summarize for any class assignment. It was so one-dimensional.

I like that one with Jimmy Stewart and the little girl whose mother tells her there is no Santa Claus, and the mother works in a department store, and there is Kris Kringle who works for the department store, and there is the Macy's parade, and all the letters to the judge, and the house and love story at the end.

Re: Thread for those of us who are BEYOND HOPE

Jim Carrey is an unfunny facial contortionist. Robin Williams ain't funny either. Hell of an actor, though.

What's the name of the Macy's-Kris Kringle movie?

Miracle on 42nd Street?

Not sure if I got the street number right, but it's something like that.

I agree. Life Is Beautiful was extremely overrated and I was bored to tears watching it.

What if you're like me and sick of Christmas? Seriously, the only thing I like is the time off. Otherwise its lame.

Damn Capitalism
