I wish I'd never watched "Whiplash", not because it was bad but because of how angry it made made me. Firstly because of the implication that abusive teachers are what it takes to achieve excellence. Secondly, if jazz really has become the academic, mechanical, contest-driven thing shown in the film, jazz is dead.

Oh thank you, I'm not the only one! The film was well made, and clearly got its hooks in me because I was horribly frustrated by the end of the film. I suppose in that way it is a great piece of art, but I don't care for what it says, how it makes me feel, and would never want to revisit it. Jazz is about expression and improvisation (from what I understand, I am a casual listener), not perfecting a rigid sequence. The kid needed to take a vacation and ditch his abusive teacher, and I can't tell if the movie saw the teacher as a necessary evil or as someone flat out harmful. The part where he ditches his girlfriend in favor of drumming mirrored certain dynamics in my parents relationship that made him completely unsympathetic in my eyes.

Really well made film, would not recommend.

The Green Mile, because it is the saddest film I've ever seen. The botched execution scene has scarred me for life >__<

Fatal Attraction- God that movies still messes with me !

Super Bad- Perfect name for that waste of time.

Pride and prejudice- I honestly couldn't understand half of what they were saying, 19th century British English. 8O

Mafia(1998)- What an awful film! Not funny.

Natural Born Killers- This was way too messed up for me, turned it off after a half hour.

Howard The Duck- It's every bit as bad as they say. Awful.
