Boring? Grow a brain!
9 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In reading reviews on this site, I have noticed that any movie which involves a subtle character study with complex human interaction and realistic situations is called "boring" by the stupid people (usually men) who need explosions, car chases, and fights to keep their ADD brain awake.

I am a man and I think it is sad that the American society has become so dumbed-down with prescription drug and fast food pickled brains. Any intelligent or introspective study is totally lost on the fat stupid masses now. We have to have computer-generated special effects which look like ridiculous cartoons (why can't Hollywood see how stupid they look?).

Any intelligent person who wants a serious movie now pretty much has to find a foreign one because this country is obsessed with money and can't possibly make a serious movie that won't make millions.

Why are all you brainless retards watching foreign movies anyway? What did you expect? A film showing your killing of innocent people abraod?
