You're rude, immature, and just plain condescending and to think you're an adult with pointless grmmatical and spelling errors. I really can't take this anymore. This place is filled with mean idiotic people who feel like they're surperior to people who watch these types of movies. Hey, do movies making money affect your life? Apparantly so, since you cynical, old people complain 24/7 on films you'll never see in your life and would probably forget to bash on about a week later.

Remain as angry people complaining about nothing original getting released these days. Become the sad, single, obese men you are, sitting in your parent's house. I just can't take it anymore. I'm not wasting my life on you complete idiots who drop more IQ to the people who are reading your posts than watching these "god awful" remakes as you all say. Even the five films nominated for Best Picture are based off books/lives.

No, really. I am sick and tired of this ongoing condescending comments to me and you may laugh at me while I'm saying all of this because it's the internet. You wouldn't act like this to a teen in real life but the internet is a fantastic thing because you can get away saying some of the most offensive, mean, incredibly rude comments that would probably get you in trouble in real life. It's just sad, seeing the way you adults act like to a person like me because I'm an optimist and don't go around complaining 24/7 like you guys do.

And it's just oh-so-funny how you would generalize my demographic when literally nobody in my high school was talking about this movie. This week, I was going to watch "Coraline" and not "Friday the 13th" but no, you basically assume I'm a dumb person when I'm the top 10% of my class with a 5.2 GPA. I'm not dumb and just because I watch films that you "may not find tolerable," that doesn't make me dumb. I'm probably smarter than you dumb pricks who can't even add 1 + 1 without using the calculator. I'm not going to swoop down to your level. You're just sick and a cold human being who doesn't deserve to live.

Oh, and this movie made $19 million on Friday. Thought I would let you know.

Sorry dude, but you walked into this one.

If all we do is insult you, why do you bother posting here anyway? We've been through this time and time again. And why do we care which movies make money? Because the more money bad movies make, the more bad movies will come out as a direct result of it.

Remain as angry people complaining about nothing original getting released these days. Become the sad, single, obese men you are, sitting in your parent's house.

That's the image you wish was true about us, but in the end, this is a token Internet insult that is thrown around without thought. Note: no matter what the media says, not every people who uses the Internet is an anti-social shut-in.

I just can't take it anymore. I'm not wasting my life on you complete idiots who drop more IQ to the people who are reading your posts than watching these "god awful" remakes as you all say. Even the five films nominated for Best Picture are based off books/lives.

Movies based off of books are adaptations; there's a difference. This "Friday The 13th" is a remake, as in a rehashing of what was once an original idea that really can't be made better just by adding modern day slang, fashion, and technology. "Gone With The Wind" was an adaptation, too, but the movie is fine the way it is. If it was remade, however, we would be trashing the remake just the same.

It's just sad, seeing the way you adults act like to a person like me because I'm an optimist and don't go around complaining 24/7 like you guys do.

We act like this because this is clearly a site that mocks certain movies and then you jump to these movies defense, and then act surprised when we say you can't tell a good movie from a bad one. Seriously, why bring this on yourself? We also keep pointing out how you rate movies by "expectations", which you're not suppose to do, you're suppose to go in with a blank slate, not hoping to see certain things and then give a good or bad review based on the film's contents not having what you expected it would.

And it's just oh-so-funny how you would generalize my demographic when literally nobody in my high school was talking about this movie.

Maybe not YOUR high school, but I bet money it was the talk of every teenager in every other of the thousands of high schools in America. 

This week, I was going to watch "Coraline" and not "Friday the 13th" but no, you basically assume I'm a dumb person when I'm the top 10% of my class with a 5.2 GPA.

Once again, a GPA can't be any higher than 4.0, so please stop saying this proves you're smarter than us or a better judge of movies. 

I'm not dumb and just because I watch films that you "may not find tolerable," that doesn't make me dumb. I'm probably smarter than you dumb pricks who can't even add 1 + 1 without using the calculator. I'm not going to swoop down to your level. You're just sick and a cold human being who doesn't deserve to live.

Again, with the childish Internet insults. You're stooping (not "swooping") lower than us by saying such a silly comment.

Oh, and this movie made $19 million on Friday. Thought I would let you know.

Well then, here comes the official 13th movie of the series sometime in the next two years (yes, I count spin-offs and crossovers like "Freddy Vs. Jason"). Expect to see that one on our forum's list when it comes out, if you still want to hang out with us cold, evil, stuck up, old farts.

Oh, it's oh so convenient for you to ignore almost half of my well thought out comments. Please, don't do that. You know the user who I was speaking to so please, stay out of our discussion. If you feel the need to somehow bump in and come in to side with him, that's just shows how incredibly idiotic you are. You know that user was very condescending and just plain ignorant. He has no idea who I am and what I do in my life whatsoever.

If all we do is insult you, why do you bother posting here anyway? We've been through this time and time again. And why do we care which movies make money? Because the more money bad movies make, the more bad movies will come out as a direct result of it.

I wasn't talking to you. Yes, I was making generalizations about you guys living in your parent's home and all of that because of the anger building up inside me but you became a problem too.

Movies based off of books are adaptations; there's a difference. This "Friday The 13th" is a remake, as in a rehashing of what was once an original idea that really can't be made better just by adding modern day slang, fashion, and technology. "Gone With The Wind" was an adaptation, too, but the movie is fine the way it is. If it was remade, however, we would be trashing the remake just the same.

You've completely missed my point. I wasn't saying that all of those are adaptations so that they're bad too, I'm just saying it just because.

We act like this because this is clearly a site that mocks certain movies and then you jump to these movies defense, and then act surprised when we say you can't tell a good movie from a bad one. Seriously, why bring this on yourself? We also keep pointing out how you rate movies by "expectations", which you're not suppose to do, you're suppose to go in with a blank slate, not hoping to see certain things and then give a good or bad review based on the film's contents not having what you expected it would.

There are plenty of people who come here making accounts and putting one comments and never using their accounts again. I'm just staying here longer than them because of the conversations. And yes, I can tell the difference between a good movie and a bad movie so how am I surprised?

And there is no rule if there should be expectations or not. Obviously, many people have expectations for movies all of the time. Even this film, Friday the 13th, have expectations from fans of the original. It's not wrong. People have expectations for even good directors and people who have built a good reputation so don't tell me I can't do something when 90% of the population already does. You don't go into the spoof movies with a blank slate. Nobody does that.

Once again, a GPA can't be any higher than 4.0, so please stop saying this proves you're smarter than us or a better judge of movies.

News flash: GPA varies between different schools. Most schools have the GPA out of 6 or a 5.6. Of course my GPA can be over 4. I said I have a GPA of a 5.2 because I do. I'm not making it up. The highest score on the SAT isn't 1400 anymore. It's 2100. There are honors/AP classes in high school now, meaning you can take college classes in high school which saves you money for college if you pass the AP test. This isn't new to me but perhaps new to you. There, I've just introduced this new system you've never noticed.

Okay, so instead of using all of your smarts, you let your anger get the better of you and said very foolish things. Understandable.

You've completely missed my point. I wasn't saying that all of those are adaptations so that they're bad too, I'm just saying it just because.

Just saying because? What was the point? The other major difference is that these adaptations were made to be good, not made for the sole reason to make money like remakes are.

There are plenty of people who come here making accounts and putting one comments and never using their accounts again. I'm just staying here longer than them because of the conversations. And yes, I can tell the difference between a good movie and a bad movie so how am I surprised?

Because you seem to be one of the very few people who gives high reviews to movies that are otherwise universally panned.

And there is no rule if there should be expectations or not. Obviously, many people have expectations for movies all of the time. Even this film, Friday the 13th, have expectations from fans of the original. It's not wrong. People have expectations for even good directors and people who have built a good reputation so don't tell me I can't do something when 90% of the population already does. You don't go into the spoof movies with a blank slate. Nobody does that.

Yes you can. You can go into any spoof movie simply knowing they are going to poke fun of popular movies, that's all you need to know. But what I mean is how you judge the entire final grade for your reviews based on your expectations. I mean come on, 6 out of 10 for "Disaster Movie" because it made you laugh 6 or 8 times instead of the 2 times you expected to laugh? That's like someone giving an action movie a 3 out of 10 because the final fight sequence was only 10 minutes long instead of the 30 minutes they were hoping for.

News flash: GPA varies between different schools. Most schools have the GPA out of 6 or a 5.6. Of course my GPA can be over 4. I said I have a GPA of a 5.2 because I do. I'm not making it up. The highest score on the SAT isn't 1400 anymore. It's 2100.

This isn't new to me but perhaps new to you. There, I've just introduced this new system you've never noticed.

Okay, but your high GPA still doesn't mean you have great taste in quality movies. I mean you're up against people here who work in the industry and have seen thousands of movies that probably date back 70 years. They would know a good movie from a bad one and would have the common sense not to defend bad movies in a forum that will not agree with them.

Groups of beautiful people go camping to have themselves killed by the
infamous Jason Vorhees in predictable, uninspired, bloody ways.

So you're a fan of slasher films? Or are you one of those people who
wonder why this franchise has inspired eleven sequels, reboot,
spinoffs, or what have you? Well, I can say now: People just love,
love, love Mr. Vorhees so you know he's not going anytime soon. Right
off the bat, I have to say this film looked exciting and fun by its
publicity. The hype around it is amazing, although not as big as
"Twilight" or "High School Musical" but it's pretty big. That's just
the problem. The film is not good. It's not even a good slasher film
and if you know me, I love slashers. I love the clichés and the camp
and the ridiculous over-the-top death scenes but this one is different.

How is it different, you ask? First of all, it's boring. The movie
moves surprisingly slow and the pace was uneven all around. Second, the
movie is not entertaining. The film takes itself way too seriously with
the lame jokes flying over peoples' head as if they were bad dialogue.
Third, most of the characters are one dimensional and so unsympathetic
that you want them to die the second you lay eyes upon them. Fourth,
the death scenes aren't too great either. They're rather uncreative.
Fifth, the film is just too predictable that the movie bores you. The
movie, as a whole, is just lifeless.

Everything that makes a good slasher movie is not here. The scares are
just way too average. The only things that actually scare are the pop
up scenes but those get old after being done several times in just the
first few minutes. So what's good about the movie? Well, I can say,
technically, the film is fantastic. This film knows how to get the
camera at the best angles and the use of sound is just fantastic.
However, I doubt that's what people are looking for in this type of
film.

Jared Padalecki doesn't have much to work with because, after all, it's
just a slasher. Everyone else either plays a character who loves sex or
either loves drugs and that's such a shame. Yes, there are movies out
there where they wink at the audience because of the clichés, as if
poking fun of the genre, which is totally fine by me, but this film
felt like the clichés were just there because of the bad script. The
filmmakers also took some characteristics of Jason Vorhees in the
previous films but also added elements of their own and some, I will
say now, is laughable while others are surprising, although it doesn't
do much.

Overall, the film is a huge disappointment. "My Bloody Valentine 3D,"
which came out like a month ago, was better and more entertaining than
this and also had more to offer. This film is just a list of ongoing
clichés and predictability that does not have fun with itself and
doesn't know how to entertain an audience. The film should have been
good but what can you say? You can't always get what you want. 4/10

Okay, so at least you gave this movie a more modest and reasonable grade than you usually do.

[/QUOTE]

I find it odd that the standards would have changed from a 4.0 maximum (although I've heard of up to a 4.3), (and the SATs were out of 1600, not 1400) without the country being told about it. Even old fogeys like Michaels and myself would probably be aware of this major systemic change. I'll concede that I don't know how your school does things though. I might be able to believe that you have a 5.2/6, but I can tell you right now - and I'm saying this out of honesty, not to be mean - that judging from your grammar, you don't get perfect grades in school. They could be pretty decent, probably comparable to what I used to get, anyhow. But not high enough for a "holier than thou" complex.

But lets take a step back for a moment. MWG is usually on his own with his opinions, and he sticks out the fight, so there's something to be commended there. And let's face it, there's no accounting for taste.

Finally, I'd like to say that "bad" movies making money does affect our lives. I can't stress enough that there is a finite amount of money that can exist before it starts to lose its value. When millions of these dollars are in the hands of Seltzerberg, who gained their fame and forture for the mere price of a saddle, with which to ride the coattails of the Wayans Bros., that means that the little money I have, which I earn the hard way by working until midnight one day, and coming back at 4:30am the next, giving my damnedest every day, still needing to wonder whether or not I'm even going to have those $h!tty hours to go back to the next week, so two talentless hacks can live the good life by making a "joke" like - Indiana Jones is a black midget (HILARIOUS, right?), yes, that affects my life. The economy is like a living organism and it requires balance, and the amount of money the entertainment industry has at its disposal on the whole is sickening. They give us the lowest common denominator, what they think is going to give them the most money, and all we ask is for a little originality or some quality. Ok, I should probably stop now.

When the original "Friday the 13th" film was released (1980), I was in high school at the time. I went to this flick at a second run "scratch theater”. (All seats-$1.00!) I was with my friend, along with his girlfriend at the time! She kept screaming in my ear every time somebody was gonna get whacked! All-in-all, I though it was a rip roarin’ stupid picture! I wasn’t too surprised when a “Part 2” was released. I was rather surprised when “Part 3” came about, and I gave up when “Part 4” hit the theaters.

In short, even though I was within this film’s demographic audience, I found the “Friday the 13th” movies to be dumb as anything! I’ve seen a lot of bad movies in the 1980’s -many of them were “good-bad” movies. “Friday the 13th” was one of two “cash cows” for Paramount in that decade. (The other one was the “Star Trek” franchise!)

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Welcome back to our Forum, Olif...and I, too, like Pixie Stix (though they contain next-to-nothing actually found in nature)...

I like Pixie Stix!

They could be pretty decent, probably comparable to what I used to get, anyhow. But not high enough for a "holier than thou" complex.
 

I was about to say, those numbers did seem made up. I KNOW for a fact that a perfect SAT score is 1600, and seeing as how MWG said 1400 just goes to show he hasn't taken the test yet. And there's no way they would raise the score to 2100 without it making front page news across the country. But I can believe in a 5.0 GPA, but anything higher still sounds made up. But if he really thinks that makes him so much smater, just a little tidbit, I my GPA was 3.6 out of 4.0. And I have a feeling most people here had GPAs just as high if not higher, so I wouldn't be so quick to throw around words like "morons", "stupid", "idiots", etc.


Finally, I'd like to say that "bad" movies making money does affect our lives. I can't stress enough that there is a finite amount of money that can exist before it starts to lose its value.

Very well said. I just isn't fair for average people to work their fingers to the bone to earn a few hundred or thousand dollars, while those two hacks earn millions by doing lazy, lackluster movies. Some may call it being jealous, but others see it for what it is: rewarding half-assed work, the same as businessmen getting million dollar bonuses, even though they caused their companies to be ran into the ground.

So, does this mean we can't be friends anymore??? Oh, Well Some how I will just have to go on. Oh by the way grmmatical is spelled "grammatical" just in case you missed it. I will admit when I wrote my blog entry I could not get the spell check to work that day so I apologize for my horrible spelling that day and promise to do better. Now I would not say this place is filled with "MEAN" people however you are right about us being cynical, That is why we express our opinions at this forum. I had no doubt this film would make money (Little surprised at the $40 for the weekend, thought it would only make about $30), it just proved my grammatically incorrect worded previous entry about the demographic group that buys into this "fine" entertainment of film making that you hold dear to and just for your information I did watch most of the Friday the 13th movies (On Cable or Video) and it got funnier with each installment, My favorite being Jason X (I'm laughing now just thinking about it)

I'm not wasting my life on you complete idiots who drop more IQ to the people who are reading your posts than watching these "god awful" remakes as you all say. Even the five films nominated for Best Picture are based off books/lives.

Now to set the record straight about a few things you pointed out in this next paragraph...

- I'm not sad most of the time, but I do get sad on occasion

- I'm married with 3 kids

- Yes I am Obese and do need to get my Fat A$$ to the Gym

- As far as living at my parents house I currently rent (But want to buy). So needless to say I am currently not living with my parents right now.

Now if you can't take what we say in this forum in stride like most of us do here no one is forcing you to click the mouse and browse your way here. The one thing you are sadly mistaken on is how we all agree what is put into this forum (I personally did not agree with some of the choices put forward for RAZZIE Gold this year like Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) and do not understand when something like John Rambo was totally missed.

It's just sad, seeing the way you adults act like to a person like me because I'm an optimist and don't go around complaining 24/7 like you guys do.

Now, I can't remember every word that I have ever blogged on here in the last 3 years but I can't remember ever being out right mean, rude, or derogatory against anyone at this forum (Maybe #1 Sly Fan, but he had it coming). This is how I am pretty much in real life around my friends, co-workers, and family (Grant it, I will not walk into a board room and act the same way). There is nothing wrong with being a optimist and we probably need more people like that in he world, but I honestly think you are blowing what I said way out of per-portion. I personally like how you defend some of these cinematic jewels that we talk about to the bitter end and do not let our opinions sway you, nor would I want you to change that stance.

I'm not dumb and just because I watch films that you "may not find tolerable," that doesn't make me dumb. I'm probably smarter than you dumb pricks who can't even add 1 + 1 without using the calculator. I'm not going to swoop down to your level. You're just sick and a cold human being who doesn't deserve to live.

Oh, and this movie made $19 million on Friday. Thought I would let you know.

When I said demographics I should have been more specific on "The type of Person" who sees this kind of film,and not the age group. Trust me I bet there were several people of my age group or higher that saw this movie as well (Does not say much for us "older people"). Nor did I ever say that you personally were dumb, and I apologize if you took it that way. Keep those grades up and stay in that 10% of your class (I Bet your parents are so proud )for it will only make it better for you in life, especially in the working community.

Your Statement "I'm probably smarter than you dumb pricks who can't even add 1 + 1 without using the calculator. I'm not going to swoop down to your level." You basically did and in allot of ways much worse, If you look back on most of our blog entries I don't think anyone ever came right out and said "dumb pricks" or "doesn't deserve to live".

One last thing, I am not a cold human being (even through I wish I was) and no one deserves to die. I have had to many people close to me die and that is not something I would wish upon anybody.

SPECIAL NOTE OF APPRECIATION: I just want to give forum member "Michaels" a special thanks for covering for me this weekend and trying to keep things real to one of our most junior members, Thanks again!!!

To throw in another chunk of variety to MWG's colorful tapestry, I'm single, but I date when I have time. I've been "sad" since I was much younger than MWG is now, so I get to exempt myself via grandfather clause. I'm about 5'10" and weigh about 155, so I've got a pretty average build. I played football and ran track in high school.
And as for not being an optimist, I'll tell you the same thing I told Miguel - you don't need to like everything that comes out. In fact, when the majority of movies that are coming out are remakes, sequels, and other no-risk, guaranteed moneymakers with no style or soul of their own, I feel that it's important to criticize. I implore you to look at Rotten Tomatoes weekly. Let us know when you see more than 2 movies in the top 10 with a Fresh rating. It's rare, I assure you.

I was about to say, those numbers did seem made up. I KNOW for a fact that a perfect SAT score is 1600, and seeing as how MWG said 1400 just goes to show he hasn't taken the test yet. And there's no way they would raise the score to 2100 without it making front page news across the country. But I can believe in a 5.0 GPA, but anything higher still sounds made up. But if he really thinks that makes him so much smater, just a little tidbit, I my GPA was 3.6 out of 4.0. And I have a feeling most people here had GPAs just as high if not higher, so I wouldn't be so quick to throw around words like "morons", "stupid", "idiots", etc.



Just a simple google search would let you know they added another section to the SATs, a writing section. So, hey, I did my math wrong when I said 1400 when it was obviously 1600. Who doesn't make mistakes? There's 800 points each and the new section would obviously add another 800 point which would total to 2400 and I know what I'm talking about. You're just lazy to google it to see if I'm right or not. And yes, it has been 2400 for quite awhile.

And about the GPA issue, like I said, it's different for every school. Mines have it on a 5 point scale if there's no honors/AP courses. It's on like a 5.6 scale if you are taking college courses. It's not that hard to understand. I can give you the website to my school but I can't risk giving off my location. But also, you could have also just googled that and you would find the following link: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&rls=com.microsoft%3A* &q=gpa+6.0+scale

Now to set the record straight about a few things you pointed out in this next paragraph...

- I'm not sad most of the time, but I do get sad on occasion

- I'm married with 3 kids

- Yes I am Obese and do need to get my Fat A$$ to the Gym

- As far as living at my parents house I currently rent (But want to buy). So needless to say I am currently not living with my parents right now.

Now if you can't take what we say in this forum in stride like most of us do here no one is forcing you to click the mouse and browse your way here. The one thing you are sadly mistaken on is how we all agree what is put into this forum (I personally did not agree with some of the choices put forward for RAZZIE Gold this year like Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) and do not understand when something like John Rambo was totally missed.

Again, if you are incapable of reading such simple lines, let me just spell it out for you: Like I said posts above, I was angry, so I wrote out the nastiest things to only one person, who, ironically, doesn't seem to post me back. That message was not addressed to any of you, again, like I stated above, so please, don't tell me about your private life. That's scary and weird.

Well, I guess that will teach you to post in anger now won't it. So the lesson you have taken away from this is this (I hope)...

1) If you do not want hear the answer to something don't make accusations to people you know nothing about.

2) Before you reply to a blog entry that made you all steamed up and warm inside wait an hour or two and calmly blog your answer back, take the time to re-read the original entry and your answer before clicking the "submit" button.

3) Again, if you don't think you can handle the criticism then browse away from this forum because everybody runs that gauntlet when they blog at this site.

One last thing, I think it's wonderful that you have such a good academic GPA as I have stated before but by the way you represent yourself and reply with such childish remarks like "if you are incapable of reading such simple lines, let me just spell it out for you" you obviously are carrying a 1.0 in maturity and dealings in life, witch you may acquire when you become more social and get older, there is always hope.

By the way if "YOU" had bothered to read my previous post I was the one that posted the "Demographics" entry on Page 1 of this thread and I did respond to your "Opus" of a rant including making my "Demographic" entry more clear that it was not targeted at your age group but the type of person.

I honestly think you just need one big cyber hug , because I don't think your getting the emotional support from your Friends or family on the home front. So when you are ready just  me back and will play nice.

Yes, it's all very important that we not know the town where you live in. Even if we did know which town, we still wouldn't know the exact street address that you live on, and it's not like we're going to pull a "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" on you by traveling to your home and beating you down for comments you posted on the Internet, but whatever.

This was all very educational, but once again, it was never your GPA that was in question, it's your taste in movies. See, you're young and right now, your taste in movies is either horror or comedy. Everyone else in this forum is anywhere between 20-60+ and we've seen more of a variety of movies over our years. Within the next 5 or 10 years, your taste for movies will change as you watch more diverse movies and you'll realize there's more elements that make a movie good besides what over the top and creative ways you can kill people, or if poop and fart jokes made you laugh more times than you expected they would. I'm talking about elements like themes, ideas, characters, plots, emotions, and dialog. We do this "we're smarter than you when it comes to judging movie" stuff because we have seen more quality movies than you that date back to before 1977. And then you counter this with what your GPA is, which has nothing to do with being able to tell a good movie from a bad one. So if you want to keep up with us, start watching more Turner Classic Movies, and once you've learn there's more to movies than creative kills and poop jokes, then you can say how much we don't know what we're talking about. Until then, don't hide behind your GPA, because that has everything to do with noting around here.

You are ignorant because you're stereotyping and/or generalizing. I've enjoyed some films that are listed here, yes, but never have I post them on my top 100 or top 10 for the year. I watch it and forget about it. They're just seen because they're entertaining.

However, I watch a lot of other films. Just this month, I've seen "Eastern Promises," "Bend It Like Beckham," "Closer," and many others. Last month, I've seen "Slumdog Millionaire" and "Doubt." Last year, I've seen "4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days," "The Curious Case of BB," "Transsiberian," "Zero Day," "Elephant," "Burn After Reading, "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day," "The Blair Witch Project," "Lars and the Real Girl," "Run Lola Run," "House of Sand and Fog," "The Queen," "Waitress," "The Visitor," "Death at a Funeral," "Friends With Money," "The Lookout," "Tell No One," "Vertigo" (yes, I just saw "Vertigo" last year) and--you get the point.

You guys just never seem to know because there aren't any topics to talk about them on so please, don't tell me that all I watch are comedies and horrors. I, as you couldn't tell by now, have a diverse taste in movies. I enjoy all kinds.

You throw around words like "ignorant" and "stupid" the same way Miguel throws around the word "corrupt". I came to this "sterotyping" because we have many bad comedies and horrors listed here and you defend most of them, which lead me to believe that these are the only two kinds of movies you watch. It's nice that have seen some high quality movies, but you've still given rather high grades to low quality movies. However, in the end, it's your choice to give praise to bad movies in this forum where the members' goal is to rip these movies apart.
