Freddy got Fingered was the exact same thing, literally.


You're all *beep* retards. You can use words like "Hollywood Narrative" to justify hating Freddy got Fingered, but in all honesty--GREEN WAS DOING THE SAME THING DALI DID. A film made for the sole purpose of offending people. (Believe it or not...BOTH PEOPLE ARE NOT TRADITIONAL ARTISTS ZOMG)
Except, Green's film is 80 years newer and it doesn't have "art" stamped on it's title. It's also not viewed in film school, since it hasn't "aged with time".

Anyways, I could post a dissertation on the hypocrisies of art fags, but I'll just leave you with this. YOU ARE ALL PRETENTIOUS IDIOTS WHO LIKE A KITSCHY TURD THAT HAS SINCE BEEN DONE, MUCH BETTER TOO.

I never said I hated Freddy Got Fingered. You'll have to find someone else to misquote in your highly anticipated upcoming thesis.

I'd say fundamentally Green also made a movie to make money. Dali might have wanted to offend, or he might have wanted to do a filmic experiment. Did you ask him? Did you ask Green? You might have to open a book for Dali but Green might take a call from such a devoted fan.

And just because something has "since been done" doesn't discount the fact that it'd been done before. Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) is still watched by many people, even though it's "since been done" in 2003 and 2006. Even before 1974, Texas Chainsaw Massacre is closely related to Bluebeard fairy tales.

Besides-- "since been done?" Then doesn't that make Freddy a "ripoff" of Un Chien just like surrealism is just a "ripoff" of Dadaism?

Film schools also watch recent movies. If they didn't, none of them would make any money after they graduated. Old films don't have merit simply because they are old, and they don't lose merit simply because they've "been done since." There are bad, old movies and there are bad, recent movies. There are also good old movies and good new movies.

No, but any successful dissertation requires a thesis.

You also misspelled "spelled."

Killer,
do you know that you spelled "fagit" incorrectly.

Stop being a loser.

YUP stands for Young Urban Professional.
I'm 41, that makes me far from Young.

You're a homophobic, uneducated idiot, who's trying to compare art with a movie whose sole purpose was to make money.

reply

Killer, are you single? You sound hot. Do you wanna be gay with me? (By "gay" I mean homosexual.) Give me a call. I'll be at Dick Cheney's.

reply

Actually you didn't spell it right. Not unless you are calling him a bundle of sticks. Are you? If you are that is pretty lame.

I wish language manifested itself into an animate object so I could rape it.

Haha, this guy makes a really interesting point...

reply

I like Freddy Got Fingered and Un Chien Andalou. Do I qualify?

How do you like them apples?

reply

I was hoping there would be some actual discussion in this thread, because I do think the original poster makes an interesting point. Does anybody else have any thoughts on this?

reply

I may be mistaken...but are you saying that Un Chien Andalou is a rip-off of Freddy Got Fingered, yet Un Chien Andalou came about 75 years before Freddy Got Fingered.

reply

imagine a 41 year old raving like he does online at a bar..

I notice killer lamb hadn't posted since 2006. Is it too much to hope that he died?
