I haven't sat down to watch that one since HD-DVD.....

I'll bet it looks great on 4k, but I'd be curious to watch it see how it presents itself now, years later as a Kong flick.

This is true but many people also fall outside of this and just get more turned away, the more you push something on them. Even if it's just a simple suggestion.

But yeah being condescending is a good way to turn people off as well.

Unless, of course, someone is asking for a recommendation, I tend to just let people decide if they're interested in something on their own these days.

I definitely don't like things pushed on me either. Once is enough, and I tend to get the gist right after.

I suppose I can be that way even with simple suggestions, but it depends on the person. Like people who I know that can be pushy, or critical of me.

I think too that if someone's "pop culture suggestion" is condescending then it's no longer actually a "suggestion", but instead a passive-aggressive attack. Like the armchair-quarterback-guy who says:

is a lot different than

Some people might honestly be trying to be helpful, but just use the wrong words, and others are just plain tactless, have no filter, and think with their mouths instead of their brains.

Sidekicks

Spoiler:





This actually got released on 4K last month. It never even had a DVD release in North America. It also includes a Blu-ray copy. It even has a reversible cover, which is good since I prefer the latter version, which was the original movie art.
