Ah... That explains quite a bit. You are of course, entitled to your sucky opinion, as usual. Personally, I just think you were offended that Edward James Olmos didn't get to kill Harrison Ford at the end of the movie.

mr. olmos is a disgrace to the cinema. i hesitate to call him an actor.

do you like any movies that don't contain monsters, robots, or animation?

Some, but monsters, robots, and animation generally tend to make a movie better. And don't forget villainous Nazi's/fascists. They make any movie better. Just ask Guillermo del Toro.

And just in case you were wondering, these are the top rated dvds on my IMDB list, how many contain robots, monsters, or animation? (or nazis!) \t Blade Runner (technically the robots are robots in name only, they are people actors without makeup or prosthetics and as non-robot like as you can get, no monsters, nor animation.) \t Fight Club (none) \t "Firefly" (robots... maybe and cgi) \t "Kaubôi bibappu" (its animated with robots) \t Batoru rowaiaru (none of the above) \t Enter the Dragon (none of the above) \t Groundhog Day (none of the above) \t Léon (none of the above) \t Lost in Translation (might be a robot, if you count the "claw game" in the arcade) \t Mononoke-hime (animated with monsters) \t Pulp Fiction (none of the above) \t Raiders of the Lost Ark (claymation melting nazis) \t RoboCop (robot) \t Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi (animated with monsters) Shichinin no samurai (none of the above) \t True Romance (none of the above) \t Videodrome (none of the above) Its probably exactly what you expected.

I don't really enjoy ewoks and wookies either. Actually I am pretty anti-ewok.

Its a very spiritual movie. I tend to like movies that allegorically or metaphorically allow one to explore several layers at once while remaining accessable to everyone. Groundhog Day may be one of the most multifaceted and uniquely written movies I've ever seen, and Andie McDowell has very little to do with it. Blade Runner and Groundhog Day are both really movies about God, when you get right down to it. Just coming at it from different perspectives.

For anyone interested, I have been cataloging all the movies I own. Anyone curious, can check it out. Its constantly growing.

I refuse to get in to a discussion about BR's merits. Suffice to say that is it a film not a movie (to quote a friend of mine). The themes and layering run very VERY deep. And Mr Olmos hardly does anything other than act as a chorus would, merely nudging things in a direction.

It's based on PKD; 'nuff said.

I don't know if you get it, but this movie is actually available for me On Demand. I have Comcast. They are running it simultaneously with the theatrical release. I haven't watched it yet; it's supposed to be excellent, but depressing.
