Haha Mardy, no rabble here. I sometimes lose my patience when someone tries to correct me while making themselves look uneducated in the process.

event horizon was scary as fuck when I was small, definitely the scariest movie I had seen for a long time
the first 2/3 of that movie is probably the most honest job Paul WS Anderson ever has done

It is the 90's so there is some gray area between movies and films. But really, it's a movie, it's just there to entertain and does not elicit much forward thinking.

Wait, how are you distinguishing between a movie and a film?

I wouldn't say so. Film can be more formal, a verb or rreferring to the actual physical device but other than that they are the same.

Film has a level of elite and prestige unattainable by projects bound by marquee value. Really I'm talking shizniz.

But I'm sure we can come up with enough distinctions...I find film applies to classicist sensibilities and have a level of consistency, and often simplicity. The distinction is kind of analogous to the one had between Classical music and all other popular music -the former is deemed "serious", while the latter is less easily defined (at this juncture in time...by me.)

Event Horizon was 90s "edgy." It ain't edgy no more.

Just watched it for the first time this past October after my friend who got me into movies raved about it back then.

LOL wait... are you trying to say there's a difference between a film and a movie???

You should really do research on definitions of words before you try explaining things to people. A film is a movie or motion picture. If you're not trolling you are one ignorant mofo...

Yes I'm saying there is a distinction between The Cook The Thief His Wife and Her Lover and say.....The Notebook. And no, I'm sure it's not that one is terrific and the other is the apex of self-parody.
Now like I said, perhaps in a too-sly way, I was just speaking off the top. However I do believe that film pays homage to classic standard of cinematography and the "show don't tell" format...movies are usually not up for interpretation, or may be limited in scope to attain wide-appeal, unlike film that is steeped in the medium and exists on the terms of its art. Perhaps if I watch enough Siskel & Ebert I can come back here with well appropriated terminology and vindication to spit at you.

Yeah I felt the same. It was abundantly cheesy, and the jurassic park guy (forget his name) gave me the impression that he was irritated to be on set, and pretty much faithless towards the movie.

Hey Mardy, I was going to ask you. I'm going to see Dumb and Dumber To tomorrow. Should I take my car or my automobile?

The mythology episodes are my favorites unlike most people, season 6 probably has my favorite episode of the series, Two Fathers/One Son

no doubt some interesting episodes come about in some of the latter seasons...but the later it gets the more they give into self-parody, and also the episodes that have a continuous narrative (Mulder's search for the truth ep's) seem to drop away significantly after season5
