I liked Jim Carrey in a few comedy things: In Living Color, The Mask, and Liar, Liar. Not much else, though.

Will Ferrell can be ok in small doses but, yeah, he's mostly just annoying. Actually, there don't seem to be very many movies/shows that are actually funny. :-\
Will Ferrell was perfect in elf, I thought.

So a while back there was a thread about bad video games and someone mentioned a critically acclaimed and deeply loved Zelda game that they didn't like.  Then all hell broke loose.
;]  Damar, your awesomeness grows everytime you post.

Okay, here goes:

I hate Scarlett Johansson.  She plays a w h o r e in too many movies, she's got a stupid face, and I can't stand to listen to her. 

On a similar note, I hate Rhianna too.  For many of the same reasons.

I would rather drink a bottle of $4 wine than go to a fancy restaurant and drink the "good" stuff.

Most of you know this, but for those of you know don't: I like the Twilight books and I have been to Forks, Washington.

I steal photos from Walmart sometimes. :devil:

I think that classical music is lame and boring.

When my family isn't here I walk around the house in my undies and a tank top.

I love My Little Pony! That's not shocking.  The fact that I have a My Little Pony tattoo?  Maybe a bit moreso.

I am deliberately late getting back to work from lunch sometimes because I can't stand the woman who breaks me.

I have faked a migraine more than once so I can stay home and play the Sims.

I have never seen The Godfather, Citizen Kane, or Breakfast at Tiffany's.

I took four years of Spanish in high school mainly because the girl I hated then thought she was better than I was and had only taken three years.

...jeez.  Okay.  Now I'm accomplishing being deliberately late having revealed all this to you guys.  Ta ta for now!

Neither have I.  They are on the *to watch* list though.

I don't really like the show The Office.

Also don't like Will Ferrell either.

The (original) British version is much better than the American one! :)

I feel that depends on your brand of humor. I saw a few episodes of the British one and personally prefer the American version--but the British certainly has its merits. I think it really comes down to one being geared towards British humor and one towards American, and YMMV.

Oh, another thing that most of you know but some of you don't: I hate cats.  They totally and completely freak me out and I don't know how to love on them.  I've never had one before and they are completely foreign to me.

Or it could just be that everything's better with an accent. :P  Actually, I haven't watched the American version enough to give it a fair chance. The thing is, I just don't find Steve Carell to be particularly funny. I think I would like it better if they just replaced him with Ricky Gervais. :P

Yeah I tend to like British humor so that might be worth watching.  It usually is sillier than American humor is. As for Steve Carell, he can be funny...he has done some great movies (like Dinner for Schmucks) but he does tend to play the same character over again.

Oh yeah, that reminds me, I've never played a single Legend of Zelda game :P

And I actually enjoy the song "Never Gonna Give You Up"
"Hi Rosella. The bad guys captured me as a kid and I couldn't figure out what was going on until you saved me a few years back. After all your efforts, I couldn't even stay out of trouble for one day and the bad guys got me all over again. My mind is easily warped, so I had no self-control when I turned you into an ugly troll. Then I almost blew up the world with this volcano..."

Me, too!

Janis Joplin was one of the worst singers EVER! Even worse than Bob Dylan. :P

I've never really understood the whole Beatlemania thing. They were good, they evolved through a lot of styles, yeah, but....I really just don't get the whole insanity about them. They're good, I enjoy some of their songs, others I don't like at all, and I can say exactly the same thing about just about any other artist.

Chris-don't feel bad for owning an iPad. I rented one from my school's library last week and now am converted. I first thought it was just a giant iPod Touch but I loved it. One of these days I'd like to own one.

Katie-I completely agree. I'm not all gun ho fan girl about the Beatles either. I don't even own any of their songs.

Lenny-You are missing out! Deathly Hallows is the best one of the lot! :)

I completely agree about Elvis.  I think he is horrifically overrated and I just can't stand his music.  I really like the Beatles, but only after they changed their sound and Beatlemania was over.  The early stuff just isn't my favorite.  I'd rather hear I Am the Walrus than I Wanna Hold Your Hand any day.

On an unrelated note, I also can't stand dogs.  I absolutely despise them.  They're loud, drooling, smelly, overly dependent destroyers of my sanity.  Dogs are the personality disorders of the animal world.  I can't understand why people love them so much.

I think Pink Floyd were another horribly overrated band. I just couldn't get into their music.   I understand its meant to be mellow but I just don't think they are that talented.

So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

I like Red Dawn and I think it's sad that people can't see through the "Russians invade US"-plot for the underlying message of how there's always a chance that you might turn into what you are fighting against (both the kids and the cuban officer). I have no nostalgia toward this film since the damn thing was banned for being in this country untill 2001. First release was on a DVD in 2010.

I hate Aki Kaurismäki from the bottom of my heart. The man thinks he's an indie filmmaker, when in fact he's the mainstream of mainstream here.

I like Transformers: The Revenge of the Fallen. I Think it's way better than the first one. Heck, I love most of the stuff Michael Bay puts out. The Roc is in my personal top five (Did you guys know that one of the pilots of the F-18 in the ending scene later played Jesus in that Gibson movie?)

My favorite game of all time is the GBA version of Bookworm. But I do find it weird that it does accept "poo", but not "nads".

The last movie that made me cry was The Goofy Movie. The relationship between Goofy and his son and their attempts at wanting to live in the past or go too fast to adulthood are something I can easily relate to.

I think that Tarkovsky's version of Solaris totally misses the most important theme of the book.

I think that Mr Wrong is funny.

I prefer music without lyrics or in a language that I can't understand. I have a few favorites that have lyrics.
For example:
Leevi and the Leavings - Sopivasti Lihava (Translation)
Eppu Normaali - Murheellisten Laulujen Maa (Translation)

I hate it when an artist has to explain his/her work thoroughly to the audience, because it fails to communicate with them. To me it means that the piece has failed as art.

I've taken a dump on middle of the road in the night during a long bicycle trip.
