If it doesn't matter what we think, then why start this poll?

He also made the Genneral Lee, K.I.T.T., Ecto-1, the A-team Van, and of course the batmobile, and many more.


Ok then.... at least now I don't feel like a total loser and or nerd.... you see people like me and Slurm well..... we're casual dorks.... dorks just happen to be heavily interested in a few broad hobbies.... nerds on the other hand; are smart... in fact.. too smart to do society anygood.

The whole point of holding a poll is to listen to other people's opinions - yet you seem to argue with everyone who disagrees with you. Why did you start a poll if you're only going to listen to people who share your opinion?

Oh and John DeLorean was no more a coke head than any other big buisness man of the 80's he just got arrested for tax evasion while he was using.

That bit at the end of Back To The Future was just a throwaway gag.  It wasn't intended to set up a sequel.  Why do you think it took so long before a sequel was made?

Pffft.  Without nerds there wouldn't even be any society.

Can you name any trilogies where the third movie was the best of the three? That sums up my feeling on trilogies... sorry.  frown

If ROTK (the last LOTR movie) is the best, would be a first as far as I can forsee.

Even though some people don't think it qualifies as a trilogy. I belive Goldmember was the best out of the Austin Powers movies.

Yeah.  I think that The Last Crusade was the best of the Indiana Jones films.  Raiders of the Lost Ark was great, but it didn't have Sean Connery.

Lord of the Rings isn't a trilogy.  Tolkien wrote it as one book.  His publishers wanted to split it into three books because it was so long.  The movies were all filmed together, so they aren't true sequels either.

The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions were filmed together so would Revolutions be a sequel or not?

No if you want to get really technical Reloaded/Revolutions was one, two part sequel.

Kind of like Kill Bill is one movie in pieces.

No, he wasn't using, he was selling, his use of cocaine was never proven but his selling of it was.

No he was entrapped into selling. If they would have never put James Hoffman onto him and then had him pressure DeLorean, he never would have been selling in the first place. But I thought he had admitted later that he was a user. Which seems odd about sombody who is a Health Psycho.

The whole thing reaks to high hell. But in the end he was never found guilty of Drug sales or traficking.

Oh yea and movie stuff...

i sincerely hope the wachowskis make another matrix to redeem themselves from the dissappointments of the 2nd movie. (reloaded and revolutions counts as one.) of course i dont see how they would seeing as how the story is finished.

My real thought after Neo flys by, Ok so then stuff happens. The End. I am good at making my own closure and thought that the end of "The Matrix" was sufficient for the story.

I can see a third installment of that... Be good to see an oldie return.


Also from Fromage:

Would you really like to see robocop 3???
Oh wait... they made a Robocop 3, and it sucked big time!

 just like the third installment of the Godfather,to me it shouldnt have even been written,here is what I always say about both:
The first one was Great
The second one was okay
the third one should have been destroyed when they were writing it.

Man. I've got only 1 bit to put out here right now. Don't diss The Godfather Part 2. I thought it was better that Part 1. Robert Dinero gave it his all in that film. It was biblical film-making.

I just got finishied watching the Godfather Part II and I have to agree with you that it was better than one, and yes I agree that DeNiro did a damn good job in his part...
