kirk, what is full metal challenge?

and I can't believe I forgot this one:

Harry Potter... WAY overrated!

By the way, I think Julia Roberts is beautiful, but she can't act for ****! We coined a phrase for her type; "movie model"

Overrated-- just about any popstar who tries to act in a movie. Mandy Moore did a passable job in A Walk to Remember, but she only barely made the grade, IMHO.

Underrated-- Kelly Vrooman. I know, you've never ever heard of her. She's probably the best actress to ever grace the stage at my college. Know what? She's a vegetarian. I know this because she is one of my friends, although she is not one of my closest friends.

Overrated: Reality programming. Any TV show that has scenes set in a morgue. Paris Hilton. The Simpson sisters (not "The Simpsons" cartoon versions, the other cartoon versions). And (I might get flamed for this) "God Bless America". That song is the reason why Woody Guthrie wrote "This Land is Your Land".

Underrated: PBS's Nova. I find any episode of that infinitely more interesting than at least 3/4 of everything else on TV. I also agree that Ving Rhames is underrated.

Overrated: Mischa Barton. I think she's pretty, sure, and she can act, but I think her CHARACTER on The OC is overrated. Also overrated: Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff. May be perfectly sweet, but I don't consider them actresses. I don't consider very many people actresses, though.

NON-rated...just plain out, not given enough due consideration considering how awesome her work is! And that would be.....EVAN RACHEL WOOD. Perhaps one of the most brilliant young actresses. Check out Thirteen and Once and Again

Kevin Smith (all his movies; only Clerks was worth seeing IMO)

Gwyneth Paltrow (used to think she was hot, until she opened her mouth)

Kevin Spacey (ever see K-Pax?? Barf.)

Julia Roberts

Tom Hanks

Adam Sandler (why, why, why is he being cast in "serious" movies?)

Underrated:

Tina Fey

Kate Winslet

David Cross

SNL the past few seasons (I had given up on the show around '97...it's back!)

Word to the Dr. Phil bit


Mayuko...what Asian (Japanese) bands do you like? I have listened to Puffy Amiyumi, Aki Maeda (mostly, she's a great actress), Ken Ishii, Glay, Pizzicato 5 etcetera. I like indivdual songs, but haven't found a Japanese group that I adore yet. Like I do with NIN or David Bowie (in which I love almost ALL their songs...except "Closer". I hate that song).

p.s. watashi wa nihongo ga suki desu.

Oh, we should have a forum for Japanese-culture enthusiasts!

Like, a poll:

Fave season: aki


colour: kurori to midori

food/ drink: ichigo, kohi, maki

i.e. Hey that would be fun!

i was actually thinking of starting one!
rock! (eta: ok, did it -- http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...d.php?p=692005)

i'm more into the rock groups than the pop ones (though i do have a not-so-secret love of morning musume.. oh for shame!) -- my absolute favorite band is kuroyume, followed closely by sads (gee, the fact that they both have the same singer, who i absolutely ADORE, couldn't possibly have anything to do with it
)

I like Tina Fey a lot

Jim Carrey is way underrated as a dramatic actor, i think. i consider jim carrey of the last 5 years a completely different person than early90s Jim

Danny Glover was really endearing in the Royal Tenenbaums, he should do more movies like that

and was anyone else blown away by Willem DaFoe's comedic acting skills in the life aquatic!? never would have imagined.

Overrated: Jack Nicholson. Sorry, but he was good in The Shining, and As Good As It Gets...and he is IMPACTING. But he always has the same tone, the same "devilish" attitude. At least in the last 5 movies I've seen.

In my opinion...

Overrated: Linkin Park, Tom Hanks, Dr. Phil, Paris Hilton, Sex in the City (I ****ing hated this show), Trading Spaces, Catcher In The Rye

Underrated: My Chemical Romance, Jim Carrey (in these past three years anyway), Tool, Nova shows, While You Were Out, Boy Still Missing
