I have known plenty of people that like to drone on and on about what this director's motivation for this or that scene was or where the inspiration for this or that came from and why it makes that clip of video more important, this usually kills any enjoyment I once felt for said film, kind of like taking notes for a book report ruined any enjoyment of reading many great novels back when I was in school.  Since your posts were all about movies and you were asking if anyone "liked" movies I sort of assumed you meant "liked" in that way.  I think most people really like watching movies in general.

My question was indeed not about whether people like trivia about films, but whether people enjoyed the experience of watching films. However, since I know stuff about films, and this thread proposes that one share information that others likely aren't aware of, the natural thing to do is to post some trivia about a film, director, etc., and then by extension, post the relevant video clip. It's all about sharing, really.

I'll go back and give your posts another look.  I do always appreciate good tips on movies to check out.

Please do.

As for actors I usually use them more as a negative warning indicator for a movie (say anything with Tyler Perry attached to it etc.).  However there have been countless movies I've really liked that had no actors I recognized at all.  I dislike it when an actor plays a role well and builds a reputation, but then wants to branch out and "grow", then sometimes you watch a movie based on the actor and in a small way feel ripped off when it sucks because he/she didn't stick to what they were good at.

I don't disagree with your points here at all. For example, I bet until my posts here, you've never heard of Faye Wong. But ultimately, when we watch films, we become aware of the actors/actresses in that film, and then it's only natural to see what else they've been in.

I happen to like Carey Mulligan and I happen to like Michael Fassbender. Fassbender happens to play different roles in different movies. Consider Hunger, X-Men: First Class, Jane Eyre, Prometheus, Inglourious Basterds...

Did you know that there are a few films that qualify as avant-garde existentialism? Existentialism is slightly open to interpretation, but we can think of it as the notion of existence and one's identity. In particular, there are two notable films from the Japanese sixties which I'm thinking about.

Apparently nobody here likes films.

In the "Blade Runner" movie in the scene where Deckard is flying with the hoover-car is used a real movie model of Milenium Falco starship from Star Wars as a roof of the skyscraper.  Cheesy

I haven't seen that movie in an eternity. I really should watch it again, given its status.

My mother had a black boyfriend before she met my dad (1960s England) - makes me a little proud and tearful.
Though now she's old and racist.

Burger King sausage patties are deep fried.

A couple of weeks ago, I was at McDonald's and watched the guy deep fry two burgers for my $.99 sandwiches.

Why does it make you proud? What does it even have to do with you?

...and fuck.

I guess I was wrong, thanks to now searching Wikipedia.

Quote
While Shakespeare never used the term explicitly; he hinted at it in comic scenes in a few plays. The Merry Wives of Windsor (IV.i) contains the expression focative case (see vocative case). In Henry V (IV.iv), Pistol threatens to firk (strike) a soldier, a euphemism for fuck.

Rizla papers are not exactly rizla.

The name come from the material used to produce the paper, riz(rice), and the family name of the manufacturer, Lacroix(la+).

If you take a closer look at the package you'll see Rizla+, the + meaning cross(croix).

The real name is Riz Lacroix (Rice Lacroix), but everybody calls it Rizla lol

OH, so much useless knowledge... lol

Speaking of rizlas, silver rizla are not thinner than blue ones, they just add chemical agent to make them look transparent.
