Dark City - this was Eberts number one movie of the year one year. I thought the goth look was hokey, the leads were all miscast and the story was an uninteresting retread of a really good 80s era twilight zone episode.

pretty much anything from Japan - never understood the fascination with this stuff. just slow, boring and hate the whole vibe of how I'm automatically supposed to like something because its from there. I do like Godzilla and some of the over the top Vampire girl vs whatever things

2001: A Space Odyssey

Sure the FX were great, but they were so impractical no one was able to use the same methods. Moving 30' space ships around a studio and doing  most of the matte work by hand is commendable, but expensive. The film didn't really advance the art of special FX the way King Kong, Star Wars, or Jurassic Park did. Don't really like the story either; it seems like the writer and director were trying to be bizarre/unclear to keep people wondering what it was about/talking about it.

As a major Kubrick fan...I'm going to have to totally agree with you on this one. It's boring. It's an awesome spectacle with some interesting conflicts (and I like the four act organization), but yes, it's sooo boring. I often put it on when I have insomnia to help me sleep (it's either that or Roman Reigns matches).

And you are correct: the writer and director collaborated to make this film like an abstract painting. I appreciate it for what it is, but it is probably my least (or second to least) favorite Kubrick film.

Lagomorphs: menace or underutilized resource?

The Sound of Music. I admit it is a well-done movie, but when it comes on, I want to claw my way through a wall to escape.

The Terminator movies. The effects are great, but the movies break their own rules.

While I know I'm not alone on this board, I'll include Titanic. I watched it once years ago. It p**sed me off then, and it still does.

I'll agree with the assessments of Donnie Darko. It just doesn't work for me.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show. It's awful, and not in an entertaining way. I don't drink, so it's impossible for me to get drunk enough to enjoy such crap.

And while I didn't hate it, Star Wars: Rogue One was meh.

And last, I thought Mad Max: Thunder Road was the worst of the Mad Max films. Tom Hardy was beyond bland. Mel Gibson may be an awful human being, but he brought warmth and depth to Max's character. Hardy's Max could have been done just as well by a G. I. Joe doll.

I think DONNIE DARKO is a great movie for teenagers. It will only work if you put yourself in the mindset of a teenager. If you try to approach it as an adult, it falls apart.

"Clive [Barker]'s idea of a great time is to have a nightmare about a woman with three heads and no skin who flays your body with a pitchfork. To give you some idea, NIGHTBREED has over 200 pus monsters, including one guy with a crescent moonhead like the McDonald's commercial and a fat guy with snakes that pop out of his stomach and eat your face off, and these are the GOOD GUYS. These are the people we're supposed to LIKE."-Joe Bob on NIGHTBREED

I dug the original because it was actually trying to do something different than your average teen angst movie. I think it did a great job with its mix of music, editing, and moody camera work.

On the other hand, the sequel was bad. They missed a great chance to do something cool with what they set up, and the whole thing just didn't work. Not that a lot of people like the sequel.

I`m really hate Star Wars

So do I. No, but . . .

Star Wars : Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)
I did not enjoy it, when I saw in theaters, and I don't really know why, as it had many of the same things that I like in other films, which I liked better, but . . . it was only a marginal dislike, so . . .

Star Wars : Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
I know there are a lot of people who like it, and some who hold this is still the best film in the series, but . . . I really hated this one. The only redeeming feature for me in it was Billy Dee Williams. I hated it so much, and again I don't know why, that, except for a couple of movies made for TV, it put me off of seeing any more Star Wars films for 35 years.

And he's off on a tangent.

While it may have put me off of seeing any more films, it did not put me off, sometime later, of reading the comic books based on the film characters.  For example in one of the latest comic books, Yoda lands on a planet that seems to be a combination of Lord of the Flies + Mad Max Beyond Thunder dome. And while I cannot disagree with people who dislike it, I found it interesting. Interesting characters. Interesting concept. Interesting costumes. Interesting make-up.

Of course, then there are the comic books featuring such characters, as Poe, Obi-Wan and Anakin, Luke, Leia, Lando, Kanan, Han, Chewbacca, and the yet to read Darth Maul. And I believe we are in the near future getting comic books based on Thrawn, Phasma, and Mace. Except for those for Darth Vader and Dr. Aphra, which I find unreadable, I quite enjoy reading all of them.

And we will see what we will see.

I was tremendously disappointed by THE ENGLISH PATIENT. Maybe I need to watch it again. But the first time I saw it, I kept thinking: "This is really boring. And that make-up isn't fooling me at all."

I wasn't terribly impressed with THE MATRIX trilogy or any of the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN franchise after the first one.
