And then I started thinking that perhaps instead of binge watching old TV series I should binge watch movies. I decided just to take on the top 100 movies for a starter. Now I'm very sure I am going to agree with quite a few of the entries on this list but I already know I'm going to argue about a few as well.
So here is #14 of the top 100 Movies of all time according to IMDB:
A Clockwork Orange (1971)
I have never read the book or watched the movie. This week I tried to watch the movie. Tried. I quit half way through because I found it insulting, violent and . . . well it felt like it had been written by a group of stoned teenage boys. I've read the reviews where they talk about its redeeming values about the government's power over an individual's free will . . . blah blah blah.
Kubrick must have done an amazing job of promoting this movie and millions of stoned teenage boys must have watched it. How else could it have made it to the list of top 100 movies?
