Overrated Movie List

Some movies deserve the hype they receive, while others just show that some people are idiots.

Avatar:
Yes the special effects were cool. But come on short attention span generation, the one dimensional characters, the predictable storyline, the cheese ball love story, this movie does not deserve to be the top grossing movie of all time. I'd rather watch Titanic again.

Moonstruck:
This Academy Award winning film is the best remedy for insomnia. I've attempted to watch it three times, and have fallen asleep every time.

Scarface:
People love this film for reasons I will never understand. Overacted, unbelievable, and totally overrated. Just like Al Pacino's career.

Lost in Translation:
I did actually like this movie, but I didn't love it. And I've talked to many people who just loved it. Anytime anyone says it is their favorite movie of all time, I kind of want to kick them in the twat.

The Kings Speech:
Yawn! Need I say more.

Unforgiven:
This is another one that I liked, but couldn't force myself to watch again. When the movie came out, people were talking about how it was going to revive the western, and how it was Eastwood's best movie, and the Academy Awards were all about this movie that year. I love a good western, and this was not a good western.

District 9:
I like the idea of this movie, and everyone else liked the movie. But come on, Aliens with super awesome technology that they don't use on us because they are addicted to cat food and end up living in a South African ghetto.

Dances With Wolves:
Excluding Field of Dreams and Bull Durham, has Kevin Costner ever done a decent movie? No, yet he has a career which included a film of him hanging out doing nothing.

2001: A Space Odyssey:
Another snore fest. Apparently the angry chimps at the beginning are the same who actually always talk about how this is a fantastic, intellectual, well made sci-fi flick .

Fargo:
Liked it, didn't love it. Don't feel the need to parody the accent after watching it, and for sure, don't want to watch it again.

Police Academy Dropouts

More proof as to the uselessness of the Police Department. While responding to a call of a jogging man who was hit by a truck, cops make fun of the man and the truck driver.

Fox News Makes You Dumber

Image Source
A new study done by the Fairleigh Dickinson University, polled 612 people to find out that people who watch Fox "pseudo" News actually know less than people who don't watch the news at all. Yes that's right, Fox News actually makes people dumber. And all this time I thought people watched Fox because they were already dumb. This could also explain why people in this country are getting dumber as well, since Fox is the most watched cable news channel.

The poll showed that people who watched Sunday morning news were the most informed with people who listen to NPR being the second most informed.


Republicans Vote to Raise Taxes for Middle Americans

They refuse to raise taxes for the richest 1% of Americans, because that is the group they are members, and who donates to their campaigns. But the Republicans don't seem to have any problems raising taxes for middle and lower class people in this country.

Rush Limbaugh: Climate Change Misinformer of the Year

In 1994 Rush Limbaugh declared, "There is no global warming going on," adding that scientists "admit" they "may need 20 years more data to prove it." Since then, Limbaugh has managed to shield his brain from 18 years of mounting evidence that humans are changing the climate.

Lame Football Penalties

Image Source
I was watching Monday night football this week and watched one of the players get a penalty for taunting. Maybe I don't watch enough football but that was the first time I witnessed someone get a penalty for taunting, which made us watching the game that football has to many lame ass penalties.
 
I can understand penalties such as unnecessary roughness and other ones that might cause injury, but come on taunting!?! That's part of the fun of playing sports is taunting your opponent.
 


Some Other Lame Penalties:
  • Equipment violations - If they want to play without a mouthpiece, let them.
  • Running Into the Kicker - Come on! It's football, the point is to hit people.
  • Illegal Celebration - The players don't mind it, the fans don't mind it, in fact the only people who have a problem with it are the ones who made the rule.

Not Hot Geek Girls

Why is it that there are no hot geeky girls? Just because a girl is hot throughout high school, why does she have to be a dumb cheerleader instead of a hot chess club girl?

These are questions I've pondered recently after a co-worker sent this dating site to a few people- Geek to Geek.

I'm not looking, but figured I'd go check out the site anyway. I found in Seattle, between 25 to 35 that all geeky women spend most of there time sitting at home playing video games eating chips and ice cream. I shouldn't say all, because there were a couple that looked good, but for the most part, spending all night sitting in front of your computer isn't good for the hips. Now, I'm sure this post will offend a few out there, but it's true. Of the profiles I looked through the girls were overweight, ugly, or both. Mostly both.

And unfortunately this has been my experience personally as well. When I'm out meeting women, the hot ones tend to be so uninteresting that I can barely stand to talk to them long enough to take them home for the night, let alone have a relationship longer than one night with them. And the geeky girls, unfortunately, just the opposite. Super interesting to talk to, but I have a hard time finding myself desiring them even with the lights off.

So geeky ugly people out there, a dating site had been created just for you so check it out. And if there are any actual geeky and hot girls out there, let me know ; )

Throwing a shout-out to a new site on Facebook for all the dash-trash out there - Orange is the New Blue

Buy United by Blue

Why should you buy from United by Blue? Because they Have already removed 82,527 pounds of trash from the ocean. For every product sold, UBB removes 1 pound of trash from our worlds oceans and waterways.

Wouldn't you rather buy from a clothing company that tries to save the planet instead of ruin it.
