Having never seen the original Star Wars trilogy as a kid, for some reason I was really kinda excited to see Episode 1: The Phantom Menace.  Figuring, well, it'd be best to start at the beginning and work my way through.  I hated Episode 1 enough I never bothered with 2-6.

The Matrix- I was hoping to like this.  Felt like somebody pooped on my lap as I watched it.

THE EXPENDABLES was pretty disappointing.  Not garbage maybe, but pretty disappointing.
AMERICAN BEAUTY
PHANTOM MENACE
HANCOCK  -- in fact, everything Will Smith's done since PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS has been a serious letdown.

And my big controversial picks - not that they're garbage by any stretch, but I was majorly underwhelmed by both THE HURT LOCKER and HISTORY OF VIOLENCE (I'll show myself out....)

-Anything by Christopher Nolan
-Almost anything by Steven Spielberg (I can only name three that deserve any praise they get, at least in my eyes)
-Anything by Peter Jackson
-Anything by Pixar
-Most of the Disney so-called "Renaissance" films.

 Please read the other posts. I mean movies that critics hates too. Nolan, Spielberg, and Jackson are considered great modern directors. Movies expected to be good that actually bombed.

They can be deleted. Just delete your own and I'll delete all posts relevant to your post. Assuming somebody else doesn't quote you before you do that.

It appears you seem to think that "The Critics" operate like some undercover organization, dishing out their unanimous opinion on everything that comes out like it's the ultimate verdict.

a) "The Critics" opinion is no more or less valid than any one of ours

b) "The Critics" don't have an overall opinion. A film praised by one "critic" may be panned by another, and given the 'so-so' by another...

GANGS OF NEW YORK tops that list for me.  What a long, boring, pointless movie!

Leo Dicaprio was the cause of that. The actor of the villian put in a great performance.

I believe that's Daniel Day Lewis

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    • Osmosis: os∑mo∑sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
