It’s pretty simple people, this is where we come when we just need to get it out of our system. Hyperbole is all over the forum and we all know it, well this is the thread where we can scream from the mountain top.
Take advantage of this and go forth in the Forum fresh and prepared for thoughtful consideration of the thoughtful considerations of others.
This is not a discussion of Hyperbole, it is here for Hyperbole itself.
So, spout away.
Plagerism! Plagerism! :)
THIS IS THE BEST FREAKING POST IN THIS THREAD!!!
EDIT—-Ooohh, busted, and how embarrassing that I didn’t notice.
^ by the way, I was just kidding above . . . hyperbole is in the public domain (and, yes, I’m confusing plagerism and copyright infringment on purpose).
I will repost this though, because it’s both about hyperbole and itself hyperbolic:
“Hyperbole was to Lyndon Johnson what oxygen is to life.”—Bill Moyers
This is the most overrated post in this thread.
Parks, retort, horrible. HYPERBOLE ONLY!
Elizabeth Taylor, in her prime, was the most beautiful woman to ever set foot on this planet!
Salma Hayek, in the strip-tease scene in “From Dusk till Dawn”, is the most beautiful woman rendered on celluloid in the single sexiest scene in the cinema that I have ever seen in my life.
700 years from now, science will have caught up so that I will still be alive, I will still be watching movies, I will still be defending even the worst crap from criticizers, and Scarface will still be an undefendable piece of shit.
EVERY movie in the Criterion Collection is better than EVERY OTHER MOVIE EVER!!!!!!
No director in the history of cinema has been able to command the respect of converse-laced, pubescent preteens, other than Sofia Coppola,
i still don’t see how this thread is about hyperboles. apparently i did not pay enough attention in english class.
I hate watching cute guys taking off their shirts in movies.
The opening scene of Carlos Reygadas’ Silent Light is the single best moment in film history.
The opening (and closing) scene in Carlos Reygadas’ “Battle in Heaven” is the most unnecessarily exploitative moment in film history.
hmmmm, is that a retort? hmmmmm……. But still a degree of hyperbole, so…..
I’d join in on this thread but since I’m the least hyperbolic person in history I fear I won’t be very good at it.
Try. It’s the most entertaining thing ever in the short history of these forums.
Greg: That is the subtlest hyperbole I have ever seen in all message boards ever.
I though “Inception” was just ok.
I am the worst person in the world at using sarcasm.
Wait, was that sarcasm?
Sarcasm is anger’s ugly cousin.
I am betar at spelding thun aknee1 in the wurld! Bow bfour my spullin skeels!
Hey, this is a club just made for me, although to paraphrase Groucho Marx, I would never be a member of a club that would accept me.
So, for my own moment of hyperbole: Antichrist (you knew this was coming) is one of the greatest f*&%-ing movies of the last decade and anyone who thinks otherwise is an a&$hole. There – that felt much better.
I had several more delicious hyperbole moments, but I see we are only allowed one per post.
Your favorite director is worse than a thousand Hitlers.
“the worst sports guy in the history of the world”:
“Boom goes the dynamite!” : )
Ingmar Bergman is the single most important director that has ever lived or ever will live on this or any other planet in our and all other solar systems within the known and unknown universe and/or universes.
(Except for Andrei Tarkovsky).
Bresson is the greatest director who shall ever walk the face of this earth. His contempt for the actor’s craft is a glorious shining beacon of contempt for all of us to slavishly follow. I only wish he could have gone farther. Instead of merely using stiff and mechanical non-actors, he should have used plastic mannequins with robot arms and cue cards that drop down to reveal emotionless dialogue. Only then would film have at last divorced itself from the false and whore-like contributions of actors. and frankly, that method trained donkey was a show boating ham. it should have been a robot donkey. just sayin.
I agree, that donkey was worse than Orson Welles.
