I think Tom Cruise is an utter tit too, but I really enjoyed Oblivion and Edge Of Tomorrow recently. When me and wife are busy round the house we keep joking, "are we an effective team?". :lol:

We probably need a thread about "Films so boring. They're good."


Oblivion I might agree on, but with the others you're just plain wrong. Unless you're one of those people who needs to have something explode every 3 seconds in a film.


Far from it. Those films are just awful. There is not much plot or character development in any of those. Not much acting skill required, because there's just nothing. But I'm sure that's exactly why people give it good ratings. It's so boring, it must be good.



No, they're not 'just awful', and no, I don't like them because they're so boring they must be good. That's just stupid. The whole point of Monsters is the development of the two main characters, and you managed to classify one film with huge light up space monsters and another in which everyone has stopped having children and there is a ton of people getting shot and blown up as having no plot and as films of 'just nothing' and 'boring'. Were you actually asleep during the films?

Monsters may not have been action packed but it was cerebral has hell - I was chewing it over for days after.

Children of Men is just awesome. Bexhill on Sea has never looked better!

I looked up Monsters and actually I'd already seen it (and hated it), but I do like both children of men and the man from earth a lot. Edge of tomorrow was fun but I couldn't watch more than 10 minutes of oblivion before cruise aversion kicked in.

Still, I've added coherence to the queue.

I wonder if the next edition of the DSM will finally list Cruise Aversion as a recognised condition. Surely there are enough of us.

Tom Cruise is in it? Right I am not watching it is pretty much my thought whenever I see a trailer with him in it. There is no amount of good story telling or directing that can make me ignore that the petulant man child is in the movie and is once again "acting".

On second thoughts, perhaps the real condition is actually lack of aversion to Tom Cruise. A sort of movie-based pica. :think:

I watched it this weekend. A great film indeed, thanks for the tip :thumbup:
I'm impressed at how a simple idea can create such a complex storyline. There are similar films like Triangle (good concept, but poorly worked out) and Primer (so confusing that I lost interest), but this film gets it right. It's a really clever puzzle, and it would take multiple viewings to figure it out. I'll certainly watch it again, looking for clues.

I think you should be strapped down to a chair and have your eyes pried open ala ClockWork Orange and be forced to watch actors like Nicolas Cage, John Travolta, Will Smith, Shia Lebouf, Robert Pattinson, Zac Effron, Vince Vaughn, Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider, Mark Wahlberg, Ashton Kutcher, Jonah Hill, or Hayden Christensen. Maybe then you'll have sanity restored.

Yes they are bad actors, most are not bad people. Also bit rude to suggest someone is insane because they don't like a certain actor.
