Wait, so you don't know anything about Twilight but choose to bash it anyway?

Oh okay. The Boondock Saints was a great movie. I haven't seen it though, but that shouldn't stop me from having an opinion on it, right?

Not watching Twilight = not knowing anything about it?

You're slipping, man.

Of course, I know enough about The Boondock Saints to declare that you're gay for not liking it.

Why are you so gay?

I don't see where you're going with this.  I've never brought up you reading Twilight as a point in a serious discussion.

You started talking about Twilight in a serious context first, I was hoping that you could tell me the relevancy of it.

Twilight was enjoyable for what it was.  Everyone stop criticizing it.

This is a funny example, because I honestly didn't think that the story of Twilight was that bad. It was the bland characters, crappy acting and horrible dialogue that made it bad. The girl-meets-boy story and the love triangle with supernatural elements in themselves aren't bad concepts, even though they're nothing new. I postulate that if Twilight was done right, it would have been good.

You're essentially saying that if the bad parts of Twilight weren't so bad, it would be better.  No shit.

no, you are misinterpreting. I'm saying that the bad majority of Twilight doesn't make the story of it void.

No I didn't, also I don't know why you bring up Twilight to this discussion of you being gay for not liking The Boondock Saints.

What, are you obsessed with Twilight, too?

Of course, I know enough about The Boondock Saints to declare that you're gay for not liking it.

Knowledge of topic 1A doesn't reflect knowledge of topic 2B, unless the two are heavily co-dependent/crossover. To support your claim, you must either concede that you are familiar with being gay, or that The Boondock Saints has strong ties to gay/anti-gay themes.

I will presume you will not concede the former, in which case Boondock's Saints has a gay or anti-gay theme. Furthermore, I doubt you will call the movie you defend "gay" which leaves anti-gay. A movie structured on anti-gay themes promoting intolerance is discriminatory and bigoted, and therefore grounds for subjective rejection.

In each case, dismissing the movie as bad, is a legitimate stance. Perhaps your claim should be revised.  :-* [/boredom]

"You either agree with me, or you are gay" is not a false dichotomy. Because Blanko says so.

I think he's trying to make some kind of reducto ad absurdum argument against me, but I can't find the post where I ever argued anything even remotely like that.

Okay, let's just start over.

Why is The Boondock Saints a good movie?

Because it was moderately better than staring at a blank screen for an hour and a half.
