I gave you a link to the movie, and that's got the jugs in motion!

That's Shakespeare's title. I don't know of anyone who applies it to the film.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - 4/10 - What a load of pretentious, borderline unwatchable horse shit. Nicholson's character is completely unlikeable and I don't see a single reason to find any of his actions admirable or even condonable. Basically he's a criminal who went to a mental hospital because he couldn't hack it in prison, and his great accomplishment is convincing a lot of mental patients to turn violent and ransack the mental hospital for the hell of it. What a great hero. I don't exactly see Nurse Ratched as an evil character either, to be honest; what exactly does she do that's so bad? Try to keep her patients in line? How evil. This movie is very much deserving of a long-winded roasting, and hopefully I'll have time and Internet enough to get around to that later.

FWIU, the movie is very different from the book. So different, in fact, that Ken Kesey, the novel's author, vowed never to watch it. I believe he kept that vow until his death.

Holiday (1938) - 8.5/10
Bad and too underlining dialogue and Hepburn's delivery of it almost kill a couple of scenes.

Please explain, oh great one, what I missed. Some bullshit metaphor equating the mental hospital with American society? How deep.

She breaks the spirits of the patients, doesn't treat them as individuals. How is it pretentious to question authority, especially in that specific era? It's not like the film overshoots its subject matter. X oscar season movie is way more pretentious than OFOTCN could ever dream of being. I gather you hate this film solely because of political reasons.



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..

To be fair, if McMurphy weren't such an obnoxious character I might be more amenable to what the film has to say. Ratched isn't exactly a heroic or model character but on the other hand the alternative seems as bad, if not worse.

Fistful Of Dollars

Clint Eastwood plays a greedy prick who witnesses a kid get shot at and does nothing to stop it.
He also wears a dirty poncho and probably smells bad too! How could I relate to such a nasty guy?
What a great hero...

Verdict : puerile crap!
1/10

I don't like Fistful of Dollars that much. Nice try though.

Evidently FC has never heard of genres. Well, a one-size-fits-all film crit approach does have the virtue of simplicity.
