Comparing American History X with La Haine is practically telling me that some of you are smoking something illegal. In my opinion, a movie is basically an entity made by a number of components includig acting, directing, cinematography, the script and the message. A movie cannot be rated so high just because it had a valid message for its time, the 90s in France when everything else just falls short from it. The actors are just inducing a state of disgust for any viewer and we are forced to watch them wonder around aimlessly for the whole movie, doing what ?
I am a fan of artsy movies myself, I have watched all the movies of Fellini, Ingmar Bergman,Kurosawa, Tarkovsi and Bunuel. But, that doesn't mean that any pretentious crap is art and that's why I think that when a movie is bad it should be deservingly bashed.
I have watched many more movies that most of you defending this crap and I know how to form an objective opinion about a movie when I see it.
If one would make an experiment and put 1000 people from different backgrounds and make them watch American History X or City of God and then La Haine, trust me, most would be on my side.
But, as with any movie there are people lurking around, you didn't get this, metal brain that, bla bla bla, sorry for not acknowledging the fact that La Haine is a masterpiece.
I am not a hater as some of you may think, I came with valid reasons for why this movie isn't worthy of its place. And as a conclusion, after i was done watching, for example, American History X, I was completely blown away by everything about that movie and still remember scenes to this day because it made a strong impression on me, contrary to La Haine which made me remember only how abject it was.
Metalhead Adrian, grow up and stop giving metalheads a bad name. If you don't like it just shut the *beep* up and don't come whine on the internet how you didn't like it. If you need to brush up your ego go do something out of your life instead. Go rewatch your Tarantinos instead.
Nobody is whining. You are completely retarded and your post has no valid arguments to what I've said. And I'm not a metalhead anymore, that was my original nickname from 2007.
By the way, how does a post on a movie forum give metalheads a bad name? Your logic obviously leaves questions about your sanity. Are you sure you aren't taking something illegal?
