    Link: Typical Independant Movie Song - This song would`ve been perfect in Juno, or Garden State or any one of those pretentious ``art`` films.

    I liked those movies though, they were cute. But people who go out of their way to like independent things make me squirm a bit.

    I hate those indie songs and everything they encompass.

    I was telling my friend at Starbucks the other day that his hat was post-modern, which clashed with his neo-modern iPod. He then took off his square glasses and looked me right in the eye and said "I`m a pretentious wannabe with no personality"

    So I peed in his face and left because anyone who is retarded enough to buy an iPod is, in fact, retarded enough to love Indie music because that`s who the iPods are marketed for, and I for one, will never buy into that poo.

    ^^ p.s. I`m not really defending it, it`s just that I found it to be a rather so-so movie, yet everyone talks about how it was the worst thing ever. I`m just curious as to why.

    P.S.- I don`t understand why everyone has to hate on something because it IS a label. Like as soon as something becomes a label, someone has to hate it, because of the mere fact that they hate labels. So I hate label haters, yeah, that`s a new label. It`s retarded. I think people that go out of their way to be IN a label are retarded, but people that fall into that category don`t count. People that buy emo stuff, wear thick eye liner, and listen to sad music because they want to be emo, are annoying. People that drink their coffee black, become vegetarian, and listen to the Scene Aesthetic non-stop because they want to be called hipsters, are annoying. WE UNDERSTAND THIS. But there really doesn`t need to be a label that HATES labels. IT`S A BIT REDUNDANT, DON`T YOU THINK? Geesh. I like indie-movies. I like action movies. I like sad, dark movies. I like horror flicks with buckets of blood, and tons of gore. Just because I like these things doesn`t mean I`m a hipster, a jock, emo, or a

    *applauds peanuts*

    If a movies good, whats the problem in liking it? Plus I lost all credibility in americas taste in films when Meet The Spartans became number one at the box office.

    I liked Juno. And Garden State (pretty good soundtrack, it had frou frou on it!) Of course the submitter needs to realise all films are art. Some films are just poo art, like the mindless drawings of a 6 year old.

    I`d hardly call juno or garden state pretentious "art" films... cos that just makes you sound like a retard. A retard who doesn`t understand film :)

    I would totally fall for that trap. ahahah.

    Oi. Juno`s soundtrack was crap and I`m a pretty avid and admitted fan of indie/hipster/whatever music.

    They should have made it sound more like authentic indie/hipster/acousta-folk music. The song they ended up with just sounded weird, not particularly indie-ish movie soundtrack.

    I thought Juno was okay.
    Not anywhere near as fantastic as half the teenagers today proclaim it to be, though.
    And the music was absolutely terrible. Well, in my taste anyway. I think I actually instinctively plugged my ears at one point during the movie.
    I have no idea what Garden State is, but I do enjoy Frou Frou.

    As for the video...
    It wasn`t that funny because it`s true.

    I watched Garden State BECAUSE of the music. I knew most of it before and someone told me that it was used very well in the movie. And they were right.

    Juno was overated.

    I really hate when people call movies pretentious. Look if you`d rather watch mindless movies like The Transformers, instead of those "pretentious art films" then go ahead. But don`t insult a movie just because it doesn`t have the Michael Bay Standard of at least 5 explosions in it. Some movies are a little more discreet than that.

    On a side note: I`ve also noticed that when people claim a movie is "pretentious", it just serves in making them look like they`re too stupid to understand it. Therefore, according to their logic, it`s just a pretentious art film.
