"Ain't Nobody Never Gave Me Nothing"

While discussing the movie Alien 3, a friend pointed out this comedy clip making fun of a stereotype in which black characters end up saying the line, "Ain't nobody never gave me nothing." I'd like to find more examples of this stereotype occurring. Can MeFites name some films where a black character says this? [more inside]

Movie Makeover Central

I'm looking for examples of the makeover montage in movies. You know, character undergoes radical transformation, set to music? A la Brittany Murphy in Clueless, or Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. Obvious and obscure examples of any time-period welcome, and while montages are my main priority I welcome other memorable movie makeovers. Female examples only, please.

Best quality in ripped clips?

How do I get the highest possible quality when ripping clips from DVD's? I've been using AoA DVD Ripper software to make .avi files, and while some of them look just fine you can sometimes see a huge difference in quality. Should I be using different software or settings? [more inside]

Past Movie Reviews/Reactions

Are there good online resources where you can go to find out how movies were received when they came out? Collections of criticism and/or public reaction?
