Computer animated movies (Disney/Pixar, Matrix scenes, ect). I don't know why, I'm just un-impressed.

Maybe I just like hand-drawn stuff more...

And I'm disguisted by anime (all the characters look the same, save the hair)

Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.

i didn't think the matrix was overrated, the sequals got pretty universally sucky reviews.

i like anime... characters may look the same, but the plots often rock.
Pixar films have some of the best characters of any films of the past few years.

The Exorcist- Supposedly one of the scariest films off all time. While I'll admit there's some good acting, and some scenes are shocking, it's not really that scary. I think I was only scared about 3 times through the whole film.

Lawrence of Arabia- I can see why this is considered a classic. But this film is too boring for me to think so.
And the main character is gay

The Matrix- As previously said.


Quentin Tarantino must direct the next James Bond film.

Over-rated?

Going out on the pull.
Lord of the Rings.
The Stereophonics.
Trying to keep everyone happy.
Knowing what you want to do with your life.

Don't get me wrong, they're good, but they're often way over-rated.
