Default 100 Things That Piss Me Off About Movies

I know this is a vagrant rip-off of Urban's list, but Boo Boo's and Jackhammers have been great so far, so why not one for this? I will try and make it as interesting as possible.


100: Songs I Like in Movies I Hate

This really pisses me off. I'm watching a movie, and it's a pretty **** movie, then all of a sudden I hear a song I like or love. It shouldn't really bother me, but I can't help but be bothered by it. It just seems like such a terrible waste of a song, especially when it's just used as a background song on the radio to establish that the main character is "hip" or cool or whatever. The Invisible is a bad example. It has at least three songs I like in it, all placed horribly. The rest of the soundtrack is sh*t, and to have theses songs placed with this movie and the other horrible songs in it pisses me off.

Another example is in Disturbia, when you see the posters in the background. Ooh, look, he has The Clash and Led Zeppelin posters, he's so cool, lol! It's posters, not songs, but to even have some artists I like associated with this sh*t just plain irks me.


On a slight side note, it also pisses me off to hear a song I despise in a film I like. For example, I love Venus. But I can't stand "Put Your Records On". I just find the song annoying, and I don't really think it fit's the film. It just seems like a cheap ploy to popularize the film.

These examples aren't the best, but I can't think of any others at the moment. I'll probably include some more later.

These posts aren't in order, but they will slowly get higher the closer I get to the end. And I shall post more later, at least one a day.

99: Film Studies Students

I'm not talking about Film Production students, that's a key difference. Film Production is making films, and studying how they are made. Film studies is "studying them", and from what I've seen that basically means you pay to watch films and listen to someone talk about them.

These people wouldn't bother me so much, but every one of them I've met on the internet are incredibly pretentious, and they don't really seem to know all that much about film. From what I've seen, all they've learned from their years of studying is how to ignore every film that's not in the AFI's top 100 list or an equivalent list. You'd think after years of studying film, they'd learn something beyond the canonized norm.

Also, many of these people seem to think that their opinion is much more important than other people's because they majored or minored in film studies. Usually that would be true; if you majored in medical science, your medical opinion would be more valid than mine. But based on the "knowledge" they display, what they have learned would be the equivalent of going to medical school and only learning how to do the Heimlich maneuver. Yes, The Godfather/Annie Hall/Vertigo/Citizen Kane/various other canonized movies are all great, but mentioning only the canonized doesn't show any real knowledge about film. Whenever someone's top ten list consists of all super-canonized films, that pretty much guarantees that they know sh*t and are trying to impress someone.

If anyone here was/is a film studies student, I'm sorry if I offended you. For all I know there is a great film studies program out there, and maybe it actually helped you. I have yet to encounter anyone who actually came out of a film studies program knowing more than I do. Everyone I've met who has an impressive knowledge of film learned it on their own, like me.

I remember hearing Closer in the Hitcher, and I got angry. >:x

And for the second one, I've come across film buffs, but they always seem to have quite a range in their movies. Kinda pretentious, still, but at least they have range. The ones you listed sound like Pricksville citizens. :o
