I'm regretting I ever wrote this poll question.
So you cant even be an apologist for yourself?

Apologizing is exactly what I'm doing.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

I guess I'm still confused.

Apologists don't really apologize, right?

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Bill and Sam, I'm pretty sure you two have had that same conversation at least twice before. And Bill's wrong.

Oh, you with the good, but ultimately erroneous memory... ;)
We'll keep having it until Bill admits I'm right.

My mind has been blown into pieces trying to comprehend this page.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

I'm at the point of finally being able to admit it, and am now finally empowered to finally stop!

So, does it count as defending if you genuinely feel all the films are good but the general public disagrees with you?

We need to put "General public" and "Average Movie Goer" in a steel cage match.  Both those guys really suck.  it can be the undercard for "Average American" vs "Joe Six Pack"

You'll find a decent-sized pro-Miami Vice contingent around here.

The AV Club had a discussion about who gets a "lifetime pass" - http://www.avclub.com/articles/who-gets-a-lifetime-pass,27417/ - and for me that's Michael Mann, which leads me into defending Miami Vice with the vast majority of movie-watchers.

How do you feel about Public Enemies?
