Back in the day,british movies were generally as awfully boring.And worst of all you had to spend a whole 2 hours minimum watching stiff middle aged men in banquet halls saying corny things like 'grand'.Who wants to spend 2 hours watching that?Nobody.Bollywood movies are 3hrs,but atleast you enjoy the songs.English sitcoms wasn't half bad though.They had Some Mothers Do Have Them, Fools & Horses, Mr. Bean,etc & they were funny as hell too. But if you really wanted to watch something half decent,you had to watch an American flick.The eighties and early nighties were packed full of classics.Till date,I still watch My Taxi Driver,Raging Bull,Goodfellas,Pulp Fiction,etc but as the millenium approached Hollywood took a turn for the worse. I mean,Hollywood has always been phony,everyone knows that.But this was the height of it.Worst of all is this trend of casting corny untalented actors for phony roles. I wont mention names,but say Jennifers & Matthews.Thank God for people like Scorcese,Tarantino...to be continued

Culturally ,well we didnt hear our side of the story until my country gave birth to directors and film makers of her own ( New Zealand) now we see and accomodate the best and up to date with the usual Hollywood lolly scramble.

You may be surprised to know how many of your favorite artists are British. For some reason the Brits can imitate an american vocal perfectly but the opposite will never be true.

I just saw the new McG movie, "This Means War", and there's this one recurring joke that I don't understand, so I was hoping someone here can explain to me. In the film, Reese Witherspoon's character...
