After Sunday, it's going to be Liz and Dick. I can't wait for this one.
Sex and the City 2
Agree with r3
"The Paper Boy". Wait a year and it'll be on a double bill with "Polyester". It will actually cost McConnaughey the Oscar because he basically plays the same character as his much-lauded turn in "Killer Joe"- only this time not so good. Nicole dusts off her "To Die For" character, 15 years and bigger lips later. Zac Efron struggles as usual to portray a human.
Lee Daniels needs to do another raw ghetto story ASAP to redeem himself.
It will be what R2 stated as of Monday morning.
Is "The Paper Boy" the one where Matthew McConaughey plays the killer who has the fried chicken fetish? That looked impossibly disgusting.
R7, you're thinking of Killer Joe.
The Wicker Man (the remake, not the original)
Actually, almost anything Nic Cage has done in the past ten years would qualify
R3, I think a camp classic would have to be something you could sit through at least once.
What was so campy about Black Swan? Some of you queens try so hard.
I love Black Swan but there are a few unintentionally funny and way over the top scenes in it.
does a camp classic have to be poorly received the first time out?
Black Swan was a piece of shit that took itself way, way too seriously. It's still unbelievable that Natalie Portman won for that.
OP, 'Black Swan' was certainly not camp.
What the fuck?
Portman was indeed good at it but she should not be a cunt in her Oscar Acceptance Speech. She should thank her dancing double Sarah Lane, she thanked all but her. That was nasty, greedy and unkind of her. What a pharisaic bitch she was in her speech...lol.
what about Burlesque? or is that more of a crap classic?
Wait until LES MISERABLES opens.
We have a new winnah!

That is your stupid opinion.
This Mean War.
This is the majority of the world's opinion, R21. Put your head back in the toilet and flush.
"A Dangerous Method". I walked in about 5 min. late to the film and Keira Knightley was already in fullblown Exorcist mode. A whole film based on a patient being cured by being whipped and fucked by Michael Fassbender.
So that's why it made over 300 million dollars, was nominated for 5 oscars, including picture and director and Portman won every best actress award? Because the whole world thought it was a piece of shit?
Anything based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks

If it's successful financially and won prizes, it MUST be a work of genius--everyone knows that!

A camp classic is something that is so bad that it's actually enjoyable to watch. SATC2 was just plain bad.
The Canyons, based on any one of the trailers, is bound to be one.
Was The Paperboy ever released? I didn't see it playing at my local theater.
"The Paperboy" was so much released as it briefly escaped.
Easy: Magic Mike
Magic Mike was a great movie, you're wrong!
People were turned off with the pee scene. Kidman might have got a backlash on that.
Anything with Hillary Swank.
I'm sure the makers of "Burlesque" were hoping it had camp value, but it doesn't. It's just boring.
Honestly, with so many weak nominees, I'm beginning to wonder if "Mommie Dearest" deserves the title. Has a single more recent film yielded half as many universally known quotes?
r36 - I'd say "The Room" was the last big start-to-finish camp fest (if you define "camp" as an unintentional thing... I do).
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
