  • Allright movie fans. We've discussed the movies that you love, now let's talk about what you don't love. Just a list is fine. I'm sure that there will be some arguments over the selected films. You can tell us why you hate them later.

    It's been kind of slow on the boards lately maybe we should bring up movie scores and soundtracks again :twisted:

    Seriously, Let the festivities begin.

    Good idea....

    Gotta think about this for a bit!

  • The Sound of Music has to be the number one over rated film in history. I feel like I'm going to puke everytime I see Julie Andrews spinning on the stupid mountain. The Sound of Music is THE most boring movie ever made.

  • I've never even been able to make it through The Sound of Music.

    Ok, here goes:
    Jurassic Park 3 (uninspired GARBAGE)
    Anything with Chris O'Donnel (he's just plain HORRIBLE)
    Last Action Hero
    Eyes Wide Shut
    Splash

    Ok, that's enough for now. I'm sure further lists will provide me with fuel for this fire.

    The whole thing. I just couldnt' get into it. There were some incredible suppirting roles, that I will admit. I didn't like Marky mark very much. I felt like the film just meandered along. It just wasnt' a very tight movie I got bored alot. There were a few good sequences. Willima H. Macy, Julianne Moore, hell even Burts Reynolds were pretty good, but the film just never came together for me. It just didnt' feel very well put together. Sometimes movies need to be 3 hours long, this one just didn't....

    Look, i'm not attacking PTA, i think as a filmaker he is very very good, even brilliant at times. Boogie nights has some flashes of brilliance in it, but it just dragged on and on and was really uneven at times.

    The soundtrack had a few good monets...I don't knwo its just my opinion.

  • Holy hell!!!
    Bobby, I never would have expected it.

    i know quite a few people who aren't PTA fans. (namely, Kevin Smith fans...hehe)
    Personaly, I dig the guy's work. He does have a tendency to meander in his story telling, but his meanderings are often interesting enough where it doesn't bother me.
    Look at Magnolia. A lot of people couldn't stand that movie, but I loved it. I think PTA got the most daring performance of Tom Cruise's career out of him. (NOTE: I didn't say BEST performance, I said MOST DARING)

    Ok, so back to some sh*tty films. Oh yeah, ANYTHING with kevin Costner (except for Tin Cup) God I hate this guy... Waterworld, The Postman... crap after crap after crap... And yes, I'm not afraid to admit that I think Dances With Wolves is one of the most overrated, boring pieces of cinema ever put to film. Granted, much of the directing is great, and the cinematography is beautiful at times, but as a whole, bleck....

    Ok, flame the hell out of me now! :twisted:

  • Overrated: Lord of the Rings. easily. though its a great film

    ok...total crap:

    Rollerball
    ROcky and bull....can't....finish...sentence
    any made for tv film
    traffic
    almost any singer-turned-actor/actress movie. j. lo included
    anything basketball with real nba players after space jam......I'm talking to you "Like Mike"....

    and why oh why do people like FIght Club so much??!?!?! I almost left, but my friend kept telling me.. "no wait, the end is the best"...wow, norton kicks his own ass. actually, i would rather see norton really get kicked the sh*t out of...not because he's a bad actor...but because he was in fight club.

    Wow. What bitterness. I love it. PTA can suck my c*ck, and so can his little skinny, pastey white girlfriend. But I loved Boogie Nights...something about porn, Marky mark, Burt Reynolds, and "Feel feel feel my heat" struck a chord.

    Lord Of The Rings IS NOToverrated...just maybe overhyped by typical nerds thining they're cool. Read the book...the movie gets so much better that way.

  • Cypher,

    Wow, why the problem with Fight Club? Damn, that's one of my faves.. but to each his own, I guess.

    And you mentioned Traffic. What was wrong with it. It's not my FAVORITE movie or anything, but I thought it was well done.

    As for PTA, from what I hear, he's gotten a GREAT dramatic performance out of Adam Sandler with Punch Drunk Love. I'm looking forward to it.

    Boogie Nights is a great flick. Wahlberg singing "You've Got the Touch" from Transformers The Movie was OUTSTANDING!

    Kerouac - As usuall we agree, Dances with wolves was horrible. What about bull durham? I love that movie. And basically tin cup was just Bull durham on a golf course...sort of...I do look forward to punchdrunk love and I agree about magnolia, I just didn't like BN

    okay and yes perhaps I have a little "kevin smith fan" bias...by the way I heard about this movie, 32 bucks or something, supposed to kick ass
  • 12 years ago
  • Not a fan of Bull Durham.

    But I did forget about Field of Dreams, which is actually another good Costner flick, in spite of him being in it. THat story would have held up with ANYONE in that role.

    I've heard of 32 Bucks!! Actually, I've read most of the script, and it's F*CKING HILARIOUS! Great stuff....

  • I had a whole list of films to bitch about, but after Brians last post I forgot it all. Brian, you use more than 4 words I'm shocked. Saving Silverman

    But seriously, Kerouac I also have to agree with you on the whole Costner filmography. Tin cup is the only good one in the bunch( Oh yeah Bull Durham was good as well.... What about the bodyguard?

    Other pieces of crap:

    Halloween (all of them)
    Pitch Black
    Armegeddon
    all of the Leprechaun sequels
    Event Horizon.
    Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
    Ed
    HOney I shrunk the Kids
    The House on Haunted Hill
    The Man in the Iron Mask
    Titanic
    Just to name a few. Despite this list I really do lIke Sci-fi flicks.

    Here's a question.
    What about films you hate but just can't help watching every time they're on tv? The one';s that seem to draw you in.

    Cypher. Lord of the Rings, crap? Did you see the movie. Outside of the fact that at some points it seemed a little drawn out It was still a great film.

    Always bagging on my limited posting words....sorry kiddies, I'm always too busy just trying to give this site life to post heavy right now. Guess I'll do that when things are a bit more automated.

    Been up from 10AM to 5:30AM the past 3 days....ugh.

  • Onion,

    Most of your list I can agree with, but MOULIN ROUGE??
    Bad acting?? Lame musical numbers?? Brother, either you just didn't get the brilliance of this movie, or you're completely uncultured. To not like it is one thing. Baz Lurman certainly isn't for everyone, but to call the movie crap, well, that's just irresponsible.
    And to say it represents everything that wrong with Hollywood? PLEASE! This movie blew the idea of Hollywood up, then took the pieces and made something NEW! This movie was original, entertaining, well acted, and EXPERTLY directed. It is everything that Hollywood is NOT.

    Yeah, Tim Burton is overrated, but you have to admit that Beetlejuice is one helluva flick.

    And I agree on Woddy Allen, too, except that Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Sex, But Were Afriad To Ask is classic. So is Annie Hall. Now he's just a tired, wrinkled punchline of himself with renewed popularity soley because of 9/11 and the fact that he's a New Yorker with a hard-on for the town.

    Ok, I feel better.

    God I love it. Onion13 welcome back mother f*cker.

    I can agree with most of your list as well, but come on, Kerouac said it...Tim Burton, you gotta keep giving him credit for things Beetlejuice, batman, and Pee Wee's Big Adventure.

    I wasn't that into Moulin Rouge either, but Jesus, you hate it!

    Oh yeah, speaking of Costner, check out this e-mail I got for my great review of Dragonfly!!!

    "You are WRONG, WRONG, WRONG on Dragonfly

    This is a very good movie, and Kevin Costner is excellent in it.....But the
    peanut gallery that likes to bash Costner seems intent on leaving him in
    critical quicksand."
  • 12 years ago
  • moulin rouge is classic

    titanic won't be forgotten (its great)

    i don't know why ppl don't like costner. i think he's a pretty damn good actor...i always sense the character he wants to get across...and tho not the best actor, he isn't even close to crap like many ppl think.

    3000MTGL...he was great in that film about a 7.5 or 8/10

    and dragonfly was a good movie, better than i expected it to be.

  • i don't know whats up with crazydoofy. a great deal of those film he listed are above average. ie, armaggedon (even tho its Bay/bruckhemeir-sp), event horizon and others.

    and doofy, when did i ever say LOTR is crap? not once. if you recall my first post...

    Overrated: Lord of the Rings. easily. though its a great film
  • 12 years ago
  • Cypher,

    I'm going to have to agree with Doofy about Armeggedon and Event Horizon.
    Armeggedon was horrible, even for a Bay/Bruckheimer film, and Event Horizon COULD
    have been good, but it never decided what kind of movie it wanted to be.. sci-fi thriller
    or cheesy horror flick. Not deciding made it weak either way.

    And you have to understand, you can't call a film GREAT and OVERRATED... it doesn't work. Either it was a great film (which by definition CAN'T be overrated), or it's a GOOD film, but OVERRATED.

    See what I mean?
