I'm probably gonna get a lot of flack for this one, but the original Psycho didn't really do much for me (though I wouldn't say I hated it, it just kinda bored me). Sorry Hitchcock.  Bluesad

I thought Anthony Perkins gave an amazing performance in PSYCHO, but there are plenty of Hitchcock movies I like better.  I think a person almost had to have been one of the first audiences who saw it, not knowing going in what the "twist" was going to be, to really feel it.

I hated AMERICAN BEAUTY.  Found it really smarmy and pretentious.
THE SOCIAL NETWORK.  I hate everything about it: I hate that they flat-out fabricated most of the story, I hate every character, I hate Justin Timberlake's stupid face and Jesse Eisenberg's endless sulking, I hate the soundtrack, I even hate the way it looks.  But most of all I hate that everybody on earth praises it while ignoring ZODIAC.

"Hate" is probably too strong a word, but 2001 left me cold.  I admire that movie, but I didn't enjoy a second of it.

I love Hitchcock's work. But I gotta admit he had a lot off good work besides psycho. Also even though American beauty is a favorite movie off mine, I can see the pretentious streak in it. sometimes a well thought out movie has a fine line between Pretentionious and an acctuall good job, that made a good, deep point, that makes sense. xD American Beauty gets away with it in my book though.

I brought this up before, but I'll go again: The Piano (1993)

A romance & drama that doesn't work even in the slightest, unlikeable characters, and bad acting that ruins any and all important or high drama scenes.

The way you discribed The Piano. Makes it sound like no more than than day time soap operas. >_<

I hated TITANIC.  Emphasis on ICK.  A titan ick is right.  

Yes, Titanic!  Man, that movie sucks.  I watched it and found myself anticipating the lines and actions before they happened.

Add AVATAR to the list, too.  I despised it.  Written for an audience who had never seen Pocahontas, Dances With Wolves, or anything similar; not to mention for those with an IQ below that of a sea-urchin.  Sure, the direction and effects were superb, but the story was so cliched and hackneyed, the messages so heavyhanded, and the sequence of events so predictable, that I spent weeks afterwards ranting about it to anyone who mentioned it.

It's Cameron's Curse.  I find it hard to imagine how the director who brought us Terminator and Aliens could come up with such cliched, heavyhanded and predictable crap as Titanic and Avatar.

Let's face it, Cameron is a bit of an hack...Aliens and Terminator he borrowed from other places (Outer Limits and the book Starship Troopers) for both of those as good as they are...

should add to my list..

Titanic
Clerks II

The Producers, Night of the Hunter, Nausicaš of the Valley of the Wind, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Whoís Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, all  3 Lord of the Rings, The Wizard of Oz and Magnolia   Hatred Hatred Hatred
I can understand your opinion on all of these, particularly them LOTR movies (though I really like the first, I hated the last movie more than anything I've paid to see...)  I think the original THE PRODUCERS is... meh.  But NIGHT OF THE HUNTER and WIZARD OF OZ?  You must have had a tough childhood.  Come back to them when you pass 40, and you may be surprised at their charms.  Two movies that weren't so big as you might imagine, flops in fact, but have over the decades elbowed their way to the front of the pack because they're very great movies.  


I've hated Oz all my life even as a kid.

I can't see myself changing my mind about it ever.

I agree with all who said "Titanic." I think Cameron is an overrated a- hole! "Aliens" is cool but I was always partial to the first one that Ridley Scott did. Thought 3 and 4 were crap. Same with "Terminator" I only liked the first one. I'm so sorry to say this, but I have never really liked "Jurassic Park." I know I should, I'm a Spielberg fan, but I just don't.

But it is much longer and set in the old times, so it is different then from a day time soap.

History of Violence.

People saying TITANIC have obviously somehow missed the fact that is is one of the most consistently panned movies of all time!

My list

SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION (bore-wank infection)
EXCORCIST (dreck-corcist)
BLADERUNNER (blade runny-diahorea)
AMERICAN BEAUTY (American pooh-ty)
THE GODFATHER (the god-damn-how-much-longer-does-this-go-on-for-don't-tell-me-there's-two-sequels-as-well-noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo father)
