    No, your sense of equanimity is priceless. You killed only half the cast!

    Hey, I'm a chick, and I hated it so much that I refused to watch any De Caprio movies for years. I just wanted to walk out when people with guns started running around, going downstairs and whatnot, while the boat was sinking.:hopelessness:

    Forrest Gump. I died a little. It's my most favorite movie. :confused:

    I don't like Avatar and The Shining. Many people call them almost the best movies, but I did not like the cast in The Shining (as well as the ending and some p[lot twists) and I was just bored watching Avatar.

    It is great that we don't all agree on everything.

    One of the reasons for my acute dislike of Forrest Gump is the way that (it appears to me) it was embraced so enthusiastically by so many in the US for its wonderful message of "All you have to do to be successful in the USA is have a good heart" when, in fact, Forrest - for all his good-heartedness - would never have been successful, and would never have been permitted custody of his son. Its message, notwithstanding its (I assume) sincerity, was fundamentally untrue, but that uncomfortable fact was lost in a sea of sickly sentiment.

    As I said, good job we don't all agree on everything. At least we agree on SK as an author! :)

    I think you need to see Avatar at the Imax Theatre in surround sound with three D glasses - otherwise I imagine it would not be all that great.

    Oooo, a revived thread that I didn't know existed.

    I remember being dragged to West Side Story as a kid and hating it, except for Natalie Wood. About a year or two ago, the movie came up in discussion with a couple of friends with whom we watch classics. We decided to give it a try, with me thinking I was just a sullen, uncooperative kid the first time. I'll like it better now.

    Nope. I was right. It still sucks.

    Not only do I not like T. itanic, I further resent it deeply for the fact that 1) I had gulped a Diet Coke during the movie, and by the time we get through the 17.5 hours of ship sinking, with the water gushing through the passageways and into the rooms, I was ready to flood the theater on my own; and 2) the Titanic craze robbed one of my favorite movies of all time, LA Confidential, from its rightful share of awards.

    Arlington Road.
    The slaughter of innocents and the triumph of evil.

    The last (or first, whatever) Star Wars. The last Indiana Jones.

    I'd like to say I hated Deconstructing Harry, but since we gave up on it after the first 15 minutes, I can't really say.

    The dysfunctional family movie with DeNiro and (Ben) Stiller. I just couldn't stand it.

    I do get a laugh out of Plan 9. Just the way they wrote out Lugosi, the continuity curiosity with the woman sitting out in the back, the confusion of dark or daytime from scene to scene, the sheriff scratching his head thoughtfully with the business end of the revolver, the shower curtain over the door in the alien craft... honestly, I get a kick out of it.

    And I like Spielberg when he's on his game like Empire of the Sun or Munich or the first three Indiana Jones. Not so much when he mails it in, like Jurassic Park II or the last Indiana Jones (see above).

    Where the wild things are ruined one of my only reading experiences as a youth.
    Pretty much anything that Tim Burton is involved with
    The Exorcist sequels and the Godfather three because if I enjoyed the Opera, I would go to one.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here, but I'm guessing if the long rumored 5 hour director's cut of Titanic ever materializes you're not gonna buy it?

    The deleted scenes are included in the newer version but aren't restored back into the film, just as 'extra's'.

    The Village
    Signs- M. Night Shymalan gets my vote for worst director ever. These two movies in particular were so
    stupid I could almost feel my IQ dropping as I watched them.
    Diamonds Are Forever- Worst James Bond movie ever. Too stupid for words.
    The Dark Knight - Long, slow, boring, silly and did I mention boring?
    The Paperboy- Repellant in every way.
    Batman Forever and Batman and Robin - The two Joel Shumacher travesties in the Batman franchise.
    At least he issued a formal apology for making Batman and

    Started watching My Dinner With Andre once, and kept thinking there had to be more to it.. But there wasn't. Just one guy talking and talking and talking through dinner, making free associations, while the other guy sits there looking fascinated.. I want that hour and a half of my life back damnit!!

    Napoleon Dynamite. I never understood how that movie gained popularity and is considered a cult classic in a way. I didn't really find it funny, but rather boring. Maybe the "humor" wasn't for me in that movie :/

    I agree! Can't handle them at all. No interest when people break out in song. However, very odd, the only one I could stand is "Les Miserables" Maybe because the story was told by the songs. My husband gives me really strange looks whenever I watch it.
