    I feel compelled to point out that the majority of movies on my list did not feature Will Smith.

    But you made a category specifically called "Will Smith Movies."

    And we used to have a forum specifically called "The Arena." What's your point?

    wocks, i'm pretty sure we passed the point where you could feign surprise at not having heard of something famous or popular sometime in 2004.

    I don't understand at all how that's relevant. I'm just pointing out you obviously like Will Smith enough to single out movies starring him.

    I don't even recall being on this website in 2004. Regardless, though, continue not believing me. This site happens to cater to a number of pretty niche tastes. BSG was a major event around these parts, and most of the world didn't know of anything beyond the original series, if they had heard of it at all. Likewise probably a half dozen other things. Including whatever "Sunshine" is.

    EDIT: Really, guys? Your challenging the notion that someone may not have heard of a movie whose worldwide gross was only 32 million dollars? And you described this as "something popular?"

    You would probably have a point if this was the first time you feigned ignorance on a subject. Or belittled something you hadn't experienced. Or misunderstood something you did experience...etc etc etc.

    You should have an Andy Rooney weekly 5 minute segment called Contrarian Corner With Jabba-wocky.

    this is breathtakingly sad because it implies that the movie's genius is entirely an accident

    or maybe im being too harsh and the guy was just a big fan of event horizon which i cant fault him for... the movie has a certain charm

    Hey, Wocky, do you want to have an argument in which you claim the colour blue is green then challenge people to prove otherwise? We'll all know you don't mean it and politely pretend it isn't an exercise in sophistry. It'll be great!

    to be fair i bring up sunshine around normies a lot more than i should (like i said its one of few movies i still own on dvd) and the usual case is that they've never heard of it

    To be fair, the first couple of years here really do kind of fade like a fever dream.

    I think it's to your credit that you are all so concerned with fairness.

    To be fair, even though my registration date says Jul 2, 2004, I've really only been here since 2006.

    NOW FIGURE THAT ONE OUT.

    I don't think there's enough collective care, pooled and wrung out to the last drop, to try.

    To be fair, I've been a member of this site since 1973. Before the invention of the internets and Star Wars.
    HOW DO YOU LIKE THEM APPLES?
