Hey,
You're the counter-point because I posted about "Say Anything" first.

Point (Victoria):
I'd like to preface this by saying that I'm not a fan of Cameron Crowe, and I haven't much liked anything he's done since "Say Anything." But when I first saw the movie, I didn't know who directed it, much less that I should be paying attention to who directed a movie. I was in the ninth grade.

"Say Anything" is a good movie because it has a young John Cusack in it, before he got all old and kind of wrinkly, and looks like now he got plastic surgery. The young John Cusack was cute and the character of Lloyd Dobbler is handcrafted to be the most apppealing boyfriend a girl could want: sweet, attentive, thinks she is wonderful, and in the end, gives up everything just to be with her. He may not know what he wants to do with his life, but he is very sure of who he is, which is a quality almost no real-life 18-year-old boys have (not to mention older ones). Although this is a "romantic comedy," it doesn't follow the normal plot line where contrived accidents and misunderstandings keep the couple apart, blah blah blah. I think the story is pretty believable, although I wouldn't have broken up with Lloyd even if my dad was going to jail and I was going to England. But maybe that's just me. Also, Frasier's dad is in it, and Ione Skye - didn't she marry a Beastie Boy? Whatever.

"Say Anything" is a good movie, and Mike is wrong.

Counter-Point (Mike):
So, I thought I'd just write and say that this movie stinks. Lloyd Dobbler stinks. Peter Gabriel stinks. Iona Skye stinks. The eighties stink.

Just entering my first entry to the site. I am #2 of the population five population if done alphabetically. I am writing about Victoria because she is exerting her authority to the website and I may have to secede from the site and form my own website called "new population five.com" if this continues.
