I quite like Rosenkrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. And better, it was about Hamlet. Which was a play in which there was a play...
The Last Action Hero is a terribly under-rated movie. Granted, it wasn't very good... but still quite enjoyable.
Liar, Liar comes to mind as a (bad) movie about making a movie... In which a teenaged scriptwriter gets ripped off by a Hollywood bigshot. Actually... except for the ludicrous slapstick, it's probably a true story. Seven out of ten movies in Hollywood are rip-offs. (Just like seven out of ten statistics are made up)

I happen to enjoy movies that my inferior mind considers clever. When someone tells me they're not "actually" clever I think he deserves the answer "what is that even supposed to mean?"
So thinking a movie is clever when it's "actually" not makes me pretentious then. Okay. So? I'd rather be impressed and enthusiastic about things I encounter, seems like more fun. I love interpreting meaning and philosophy into things. Being not-pretentious isn't some great achievement.
There's meaningful and then there's the Matrix Revolutions, which was about as meaningful as Warhol's Campbell soup cans...
Scratch that... The cans may have actually been more meaningful.

Seabiscuit was the Ayrton Senna of trotting in circles. Never won as many races as people think he did, and they made a nice movie about him after he died.
Surprised Jordan and Gretzky are mentioned and yet no one talks about the high water mark of American animated television that was Pro-Stars. It was almost as good as Mr.T!
