Matter of taste

Someone just told me I’m wrong about Bring It On being the best movie of all time. Excuse me? If I say it is then it is! This is my personal list of the best movies of all time. I cannot be wrong about it.

I’m not saying there aren’t other best movies of all time. There are! The Princess Bride is one. Rififi is another. Not to mention Out of the Past and Lagaan.

I am also not wrong about mangosteens being the best fruit.

Or The Wire being the best television.

Or Emma and Hellsing and anything by Osamu Tezuka being the best manga.

Or zombies being the best monsters.

And cricket absolutely is the best sport.

So nyer!

Though, of course, I reserve the right to tell you that your choices of best movie etc of all time is completely wrong. Because I am blog overlord.

    I love bring it on. bring it on all or nothing is good too. i like watching people tumbling(flipping) and stunting(holding people up in the air) and basket tosses(throwing people in the air) are awesome!

    I will be buying a copy for my daughters and telling them it’s a movie about feminism.

    i LOVE all the movies in the “bring it on” “series.” they are my guilty pleasure. If they are on TV, i must watch. my husband thinks it’s funny. The princess bride is another one. It is one of the best movies ever created, for children and adults. 😛

    I LOVE Bring It On!!! I agree with it being one of the best movies of all time. It fascinates me every time I watch it…I wish i could be that…cheerleader-y.

    Hah, finally! Aside from my wife and I, you are the only other person I’ve ever known to say zombies are the best monster… Some people just don’t get it 😉 Especially those ‘pire-fiends, they won’t listen to reason! Brains are better than blood; it’s higher in essential vitamins and minerals.

    There is so much about this post that is just wrong. Except for the cricket, princess bride and hellsing bits. They sound accurate. Clearly the heat and deadlines are getting to your judgement. I mean, really.. bring it on?! That’s your pick? *sigh*

    @dess: Mangosteens are not mangos. They’re both fruits, but the naming is just a coincidence. Mangosteens have a slightly more tart taste, although both are quite sweet. Mangosteens are a bit smaller and much darker (purple, almost) in color when ripe. Mmm… now I want a mangosteen or a mango.

    huh. i’ve never heard of/seen a mangosteen before. thank you!

  16. Dess on #

    wow was mangosteen hyperlinked before? if so, sorry. do you eat the purple part or the white part, or are both eatable?

    Bring it on was a great movie directed by a buffoon. All the pacing was off and the occasionally brilliant one-liners were outlined in bold and delivered with exactly the wrong deliberateness. That said, it must be applauded for doing what so few teen movies based in generic white California do–addressing race and class openly. Also it has finally made the point that cheerleading is NOT regressive and sexist. Cheerleading has nothing to do with girls supporting boys. It’s about gymnastics, dancing, wearing short skirts, screaming, and show biz. Oh, and plot necessities aside, the Toros routine was better than the Clovers.
