Quotes: Narm Charm
"In true Superman fashion, Darkseid endures not only a savage beating, but also a cliched moral lecture. And trust me, those lectures are what make Superman, in my unreliable opinion, the perfect definition of a superhero."
"How can something be so stupid, yet so magical, all at the same time? Surely, we will never know."
"Part of Resident Evil's charm is how it continues to take itself seriously — despite having the most atrociously written story and dialogue of any product of human endeavor since Hulk Hogan took one too many clotheslines to the head and decided he could act."
Most critics also bring up the Russian to English translation, claiming it ranges from adequate to unintelligible... it flows with the lyrical jauntiness of a madman. As others have said, when most languages are mistranslated, you just get nonsense. Japanese to English produces a humorous "Engrish"...When Russian undergoes a rudimentary translation it seems to take on a lunatic, almost poetic grandeur. In the context of the hellish world that Pathologic presents, it fits rather well.
"It is no secret to say that Carey Blyton's score for Death to the Daleks has come in for some flack in the past, but I personally think that it is his most accomplished soundtrack for the series. I loved it as a child with its simple, catchy tunes and to this day I can join in with most of the cues. The Dalek theme has been bashed for being slightly comedic, but can you imagine those scenes of them wobbling along the sand dunes without it? Sacrilege."
— Joe Ford
"In the special features, Herrington, Swayze, and co-star Kelly Lynch all have a laugh at some of the stupid dialogue. But what they don't realize is that the dialogue is so dumb, it becomes brilliant again."
David: They finally beat everyone off the boat and chase Catwoman inside, where she trips and falls and Batman finally discovers sheís Kitka, leading to him staring at the camera for a few minutes while mournful opera music plays.
Chris: Thatís another one of those things that I completely bought into as a kid. Itís a heartbreaker. Even if she was a commie.
David: Burt Ward looks legitimately mournful as he watches Batman try to deal with it, and then, of course, Bruceís coping method is essentially denial. ďIt means nothing.Ē
Chris: Well if thereís one thing we know about Batman, itís that he deals pretty well with emotional trauma.
"In short, it's a clattering pile of junk and no mistake. Every twist of direction is preannounced with a loud squeak, dramatized with a clanging literalness, and punctuated with a juddering crash. Fire engines have more subtlety. And yet it is strangely hard to dislike; the thing jumbles so many discordant elements together and makes such a racket about it that it is almost charming. It's like a compendium of all the worst comic book cliches."
"Titanic was the worst-written movie I ever happily saw twice."
— Michael Phillips
"A feature length commercial filled with celebrities, cliches, and repetitive pop music...that's really sweet and heartfelt."
"Look how good Scorpion looks, man, look at him. He just looks so awesome! He's like a cheap Halloween costume, but fuck, he's so good!"
— Joel, Vinesauce
