I found all the Lord of the Rings movies incredibly dull

I hate The Wizard of Oz because it's  a musical (for some reason I hate most musicals) and because the entire thing was a dream

I didn't like Zoolander at all. I found it to be stupid and mind numblingly bad.

Had a similiar topic a while back for Classics so I won't repeat myself on what I said there.

I'm not into Lord of the Rings myself, but I will give it a shot if someone asks me to watch it.  I am opposed to most Oscar bait films, like King's Speech & The Piano, with rare exceptions.  I am also not into most 'torture porn' films, like Saw & Funny Games.  Maybe they aren't extremely popular, but they are popular enough to mention.

However, to save everyone some time, most people here don't like Avatar, The Dark Knight, most CGI big blockbusters, remakes besides The Thing, and Indiana Jones IV.  That should clear things up.   TeddyR

Funny, I did not consider FUNNY GAMES 'torture porn.'  I thought it had something to say and chose a very edgy way to say it.  It was a slam against violence in American movies.

Not saying you have to like it, of course, just that given that it has a fundamentally anti-violent theme, the violence is not gratuitous or even meant to be enjoyed (as it would in something labeled "porn").  The violence, and story itself, I think is meant to be sickening and repulsive, not prurient.

Regardless, I really hate that film, especially the stupid plot twist (the remote) that felt like the director/writer/producer/whoever came up with it that seemed like they pulled it right out of his or her ass.

Pretty much this.  I've got about as much interest in seeing Slumdog Millionaire as I do in watching an entire season of the Rosie O'Donnel show.

"The Wizard of Oz".

I hate how good and evil are depicted as a black and white thing. No gray. You're born good or you're born evil. That's stupid. Evil isn't in our biology! It's not as simple as "That person is good, that one is bad." Also it's a very bright, happy, and campy film. I hate movies that try to be super happy. Also it all turns out to be a dream in the end. I hate dream endings.

Personally I liked it's sequel, "Return to Oz" it's a lot darker and twisted. I had more fun watching that one.

Would you enjoy it more if the Cowardly Lion was female? Just kidding. TeddyR

Seriously, while I have a certain fondness for the movie, I also don't believe in absolute good or evil, although some people make me wonder about the latter. For storytelling purposes, however, I don't really mind it. Sometimes, particularly with kids' stories, it's nice to just lay out good guys and bad guys and get on with the tale.

You would probably enjoy reading "Wicked" by Gregory Maguire. It tells the story from the witch's point of view, as well as laying out her life story and explaining why she behaves as she does. The Wizard's government is portrayed as something of an iron-fisted dictatorship, run by a con man who uses Dorothy to do his dirty work. It's been a few years since I read it, but it had some interesting ideas, such as the Yellow Brick Road being an ill-advised public works project that turned out to be an expensive white elephant.

I find Billy Madison incredibly stupid. Not stupid funny, was stupid stupid. Even as a kid I thought the movie was dumb and an insult to my inteilligence. The only good thing in the movie in my opinion is in the clip below.

Best put down in a movie ever!

For me, I'd go with all of the Star Wars films.  I LOVED playing with the toys as a kid, so I'm thinking that I must have liked them at some time, but they just don't do it for me now.

Also:
The Passion of the Christ
Avatar (already mentioned as a catch-all, but I still gotta throw it in)
Forrest Gump
Iron Man (better than I was expecting, but not a fan)
Men In Black

Kill Bill. Didn't do anything for me and I never bothered with the 2nd half.

Napoleon Dynamite- I was surprised how popular this thing got, and it's getting an animated series soon. Though I did like the director's last movie Gentleman Broncos because it was so absurd and the protagonist was a nerdy teen who wrote science fiction.

Lord of the Rings- More like Bored of the ...(I'll stop there).

Anything from Zack Snyder.

@ Hammock Rider it's funny that you mention that, because I felt Barnyard Nymphos IV had too much goat. Different strokes for different folks.

I could - and have - watch the LOTR films over and over.  LOVE them.  Of course, I had read the entire trilogy 28 times by the time I graduated high school, and a dozen times or so since then.  Guess you could say I'm a fan.

As a rule, boring melodramas just don't do it for me.  SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, KRAMER VS. KRAMER, THE ENGLISH PATIENT - yawnsville.  Give me a good solid fantasy, or lots of explosions, decapitations, and Anne Hathaway and I'm good.
