Armond White's Top Ten Films on Flickchart


Armond White is film criticism’s most famous contrarian. At one moment he writes a review declaring Toy Story 3 to be the most obscene excuse for toy commercials he has ever watched, and then two weeks later types out a glowing review of Resident Evil: Afterlife. He is of split-mind for sure. But what does his Flickchart look like?

Hhaha hilarious stuff right here! Armond White is in all respect, a clown, and this flick chart sums it up so perfectly.

Voted the first day the polls opened Jess.

My god. That is depressing.

The thing is that White really sounds like a smart guy, but he has really bad taste. REALLY bad taste. I sorta agree with Ebert's judgment that he's just trolling, like a child looking for attention.

The chart in question is me acting as White. Those aren't really his top ten films of all-time (at least not his private top ten films anyway).

Do I see EdTv? What a strange guy he is and what a strange top 10. I do actually really like EdTv and of course the Godfather but Swept Away is a terrible film. And while I haven't seen some of the others, they look terrible too. He does come across as having plenty of intelligence but I think, like Darren says, he has terrible taste.

Really says it all, doesn't it?  I'm always surprised the guy still gets any attention anymore. 

Don't feed the troll...don't feed the troll...don't feed the troll...

The Dream Is Real

For my money there is nothing cooler than the idea of a city folding in on itself.

Paprika vs. Inception

Months before Inception hit the theaters forums were alive with rumors that Christopher Nolan either accidentally or intentionally stole some details from another film, the Japanese anime Paprika. The biggest point of comparison for some bloggers and forum runners was the fact that both of the films featured a device that allowed a person, or people, to travel into another’s dreams and delve into their subconscious.
Minor points of comparison include scenes in Paprika where the character Paprika breaks through a mirrored wall by holding her hand to it, as well as a scene where a police detective falls his way down a hallway. Claims have been made that Inception abounds with imagery similar to or exactly like the anime movie, but with the recent release of the film on DVD and Blu-Ray, and with Paprika available for several years now, an examination of the two plots can be made more fully.
Let us begin with the primary claim—Inception stole the idea of a dream machine from Paprika. It …

Ant-man Finally Casted?

It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.

The Avengers hits theatres in 2012.
