Ripe Or Hype?

So we watched Sideways a couple of nights ago. Now I'm trying to decide whether it or Million Dollar Baby was the most overrated film of 2004. Right now, my money is on Sideways.

Heh. I'm still taking hell for not liking, I mean really not liking Million Dollar cryBaby around here!

I'm also catchin' it for not seeing Sideways, but it seemed even from the ads to be about stupid people doing stupid things. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with Merlot.

it's really a choice between whiny upper-middle class people and whiny upper-lower class people isn't it?

Eh, I think I like the lower class. I like merlot, too, Jim! In fact, it's about the only wine I do like. We're so antiestablishment and countercultural, aren't we? lol

Yeah, Nicole. In fact, if you look up "countercultural" in the dictionary, my pictures is next to it. Or yours, depending on which dictionary you use.

Yeah, I didn't care for sideways that much either. The acting was good, but the story and pace sucked. I actually liked Million Dollar Baby though.

I don't like Million Dollar Baby because they based it on a true story, but manipulated the end to serve their means. The real boxer who was paralyzed went on to live a life of meaning and purpose. I find manipulating the facts of someone's life to reflect your own values to be pretty tasteless, regardless of your cause.

it was based on a true story? seriously, i didn't know that. that changes a bit, but seriously, anybody who thought that she was choosing the best route in her assisted suicide ("i had a full life. i have nothing else to live for..." bullsh*t) and that eastwood's character wasn't eaten alive by guilt may as well pull the plug.

o, now i'm sounding like o'reilly.

forget overrated, sideways was just plain awful.

depraved one dimensional characters who end up...depraved one dimensional characters.
