I do enjoy an occasional re-watch of Joe Dirt. Dose that qualify me as a card-carrying member of the modern disease society too?
...and is so, WHOA!

Don't knock Star Wars. It may not be the best film evah, but it's not bad as samurai movies go.

The problem of modern society can be summed up by reading (yes reading, not watching (they changed the 'I want to have your abortion' line and ruined the ending in the film) Fight Club. Not the plot arc, but the social philosphy behind it (see the 'snow flake' speech in it for a summary).
It's true, as is the already mentioned 'humanity is a virus' bit from The Matrix.
(and yes, I'm aware I'm using pop culture references to make my point since I'm in a rush, but given that culture arises from and depicts society I feel it's valid when discussing the issues of social interaction within the modern 'developed' world)

"you really gotta read more carefully."
You can say that but it's a cop out. Present a counter argument - don't just tell me I'm wrong. And do it in the film thread so I can ignore it.

you didn't provide any counter-arguments to my post at all, just a short misinterpretation and dismissal of one small point.

Survivor is probably my second favorite (after fight club) among his books that i've read. I liked choke too.

I whine, because my life means little, I accomplish little, nothing is wrong yet it is empty and meaningless. I am aware that whining makes me a dick; being a narcicist is the closest to meaning I have.

how people can go around with that hairstyle. It would bother me a lot not being able to see.
