AND YES, AN IMPERIAL STAR DESTROYER COULD KICK THE ENTERPRISE'S ASS: Man, myth, legend Ken Jennings has an interesting post on his blog today that seems that it'd spark some discussion here (it certainly has on his discussion boards). He asks about personal pop cultural preferences that run in the face of critical consensus--his include that Felicity's hair was better short, that Timothy Dalton was the second best Bond ever, and that Smashing Pumpkins' "Landslide" is better than the original Fleetwood Mac version. So, what are your iconoclastic views on pop culture? I'll offer a few:
  • The Fellowship of the Ring was by far the weakest of the Lord of The Rings movies.
  • Apollo 13 should have beaten Braveheart for best picture in 1995.
  • Cruel Intentions is the best film or stage version of Les Liaisons Dangereuses.
