Hmmm...probably anything with Will Smith in it. PG-13 horror is pathetic. Most newer movies I see advertised these days REALLY p**s me off. I'm glad I'm not a regular theater goer. Just a lot of overhyped CGI s**tfests that are severely lacking in style, atmosphere, and good old fashioned storytelling. I'd much rather watch Z-grade horror/exploitation films than the latest Hollywood blockbusters.

I found There's Something About Mary to be mind meltingly bad.  I think that's because of Cameron Diaz.  I don't like her as an actor.

The Charlies Angels movies were awful.  It took me a long time to see Zoolander as a crazy comedy and not a documentary.

I didn't like Gone With The Wind or any of the Hitchcock thrillers.  And don't even get me started on Woody Allen's dreck.

I'm not a big fan of SAW and it's umpteen-dozen sequels and ripoffs. 

Likewise for the Blair Witch Project. 

I hated both Nolan Batman movies.

PG-13 horror is pathetic

I think it's more like PG-13 horror in its more recent state (The Roomate, Darkness, Darkness Falls, The Fog remake, The Grudge, Pulse, Prom Night remake, The Unborn, When a Stranger Calls remake, Wicker Man remake (see a trend?), Cry Wolf, etc.) is pathetic.  To be honest I haven't seen any of the ones I mentioned except The Grudge but I'm pretty sure they all suck.  I can't think of many PG-13 horror flicks I like aside from maybe Drag Me to Hell, but there are older films that are either PG, G, or not rated (but would probably be PG) that are good like Jaws, The Haunting (rated G and one of the scariest movies ever!),Something Wicked This Way Comes, Nosferatu (1929), and Carnival of Souls.  I'm sure others could come up with more or better examples.

"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.

While I can't agree with hating The Wizard of Oz (although its certainly a nostalgia thing in my case), I totally agree about the whole black vs white concept (if you're looking for a really awesome childhood fantasy, I would recommend its more recent Japanese equivalent, Spirited Away, which is by no means super happy and runs on shades of grey). Also agree with liking Return to Oz, which is much closer to Baum's original intent.

Very true. It's possible to make a very scary and exciting movie without showing much that would warrant an R or an NC-17 rating. Some of the scariest movies I can think of would easily qualify for a PG rating today. The problem is that a few decades of exploitation horror and slasher films have taught filmmakers to make (and audiences to expect) horror that has little plot and minimal characterization, but a lot of blood, gore and violence. Instead of scaring the audience, horror films have tried to shock, surprise and gross us out. That was fine in the 70s and 80s. Today, however, corporations control the industry, and they want movies the whole family can go and see. And filmmakers seem unable or unwilling to make a scary movie that doesn't rely on a lot of blood and violence and action. So, now we get too many horror movies that have a crappy plot, no good characters, and a lot of the other stuff chopped out or left out in order to get a PG rating. There's nothing wrong with PG horror. What I think we object to is PG horror that isn't conceived and written to work within a PG rating. Bad PG horror is a movie that should be NC-17, but gets watered down to make it PG.

Toy Story 2- It had more questions unanswered than answered.
Citizen Kane- I fell asleep on it.
Blade Runner- I find it hard to believe that the movie is still a neo-film noir.

just about every other new f**king comedy, Oscar grabby ass  movies (The King's Speech), slasher films, and much much more.


@Pilgermann- Cars ain't a movie, hell, it never existed! TongueOut
