I haven't seen the movie

I haven't seen the movie [In reply to] Can't Post

.. I will cautiously admit I find those characters, as I see them in the trailers and movie clips on tv shows, so unlikeable and the acting so bad I can't begin to imagine why anyone would like them.

Obviously people do and people I have a high opinion of. So either I'm not giving them a chance or they just aren't my cup of tea. I still haven't seen Inception, or half a dozen other movies I'd rather see so I doubt the Twilight movies will ever make it on my list.

I did buy the soundtrack. Mostly because I knew I'd be able to find it a Target (they're soundtrack selection is VERY limited). I haven't listened to it more than a time or two at work. I juts purchased Eastern Promises' soundtrack, too.

l will admit, I don't have a ton of Shore soundtracks. But in listening to an interview he did recently on the radio, I was reminded of his Ed Wood soundtrack and that might be my next purchase.

back to criticism of creative work, I must be getting really old because a lot of the comments I read online seem to be going to great lengths to sound 'mature' (by swearing, or being very opinionated, judgemental, etc. ) but they only scream 'young' to me. I read them and go, 'well, I'm guessing you've never had a kid so that's why you think explaining to a 4 year old that Chucky isn't real will alleviate his fears' or... 'I'm guessing you never had to make a living to support a family so stealing other people's work seems like it's harmless' or .. 'I'm guessing you never had to meet a deadline and, having worked 10 hour days for 3 weeks find you absolutely must hand it off even though you know there are 16 more things you could have made better.'
