73. How Green Was My Valley

I would rather think that Martin just doesn't like the Irish rather than actually disliking the film.

Look who isn't familiar with my John Ford hate. My review.

At least I know they're Welsh, not Irish.

You're always so surprised when someone around here doesn't love one of the classics.

FWIW, I think American Beauty is pretty bad, too.

Bloody hell, those are some scathing remarks.

I am not surprised thatr people don't share the same tastes I do, I just never realised it was actually possible to hate HGWMV. Clearly I was overlooking our resident curmudgeon at whom I like to poke fun, especially when said curmudgeon persists in loathing the stuff I like (and vice versa).  ;)

And Irish, Welsh, Scottish...isn't it all just one and the same ? I mean, they all hate the British, have funny accents and display a tendency to produce carrot-haired offspring.
