Lots...but I'll stick with the horror/sci-fi genre-
.the ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW-my loathing for this  so called "cult" film is boundless.
.I dont get the attraction for garbage like SAW,HOSTEL,or such drek.
.LORD OF THE RINGS series.
.STAR WARS series.
.INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE.
.the DAY OF THE DEAD remake-or most of the new zombie films in general.
.I AM LEGEND with Will Smith.
.the SPIDERMAN series...and the HULK series...and the BATMAN series-in fact-most superheros movies-with the exception of the IRON MAN films...I think I might like the new AVENGERS movie.DAREDEVIL,the SPIRIT (which is one of my favorite comic strips),GREEN LANTERN-ugh! All awful junk! The WATCHMEN was ok...
.HARRY POTTER movies-Egad!
.AVATAR was damn lame.
.Beyond ED WOOD and PEE WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE-not a big Tim Burton fan.
.WOLF-ya know-the lame Jack Nicholson wolfman movie....stupid !
. That Sherlock Holmes movie with Robert Downey Jr. made me wanna shoot my TV.
. the MATRIX series.
.Most Jess Franco movies are incomprehensible.
.All the sequels to NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET,FRIDAY THE 13th (in fact-I didn't think the first FRIDAY the 13 movie was so great!) the HALLOWEEN sequels (except for #3),the SCREAM series-all the JEEPERS CREEPERS movies,all the WISHMASTER series,most anything that stars with "Wes Craven Presents-",the TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE sequels  and remakes (except part 2 is silly fun).

Here's another question; How about films you recognize as good or great, or you can see why they have a following, but they just don't personally appeal to you? They just leave you cold?
I honestly find Buster Keaton's "The General" difficult to sit through (and I LOVE Sherlock Jr and others, mind you).


     Great example of that....my wife and sister-in-law love THE UNTOUCHABLES, DANCES WITH WOLVES, and LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, and I agree, they're great movies, but for me, they fall into the "I've seen it, let's move on" category. I might watch them every few years or so, if they happen to come on, but they own DVDs of them, so about every three months or so, HERE THEY COME.

For better or worse,my darling. Wink

Thought Breakfast At Tiffany's was awful.
Many 80s kids thought Weird Science was great.  I really, really hated it.

Same here; I usually like Audrey Hepburn but didn't like BaT at all, owing I think to both the leads being so unsympathetic (and that bit with Mickey Rooney, I don't know what they were thinking!)  Never understood the love for Weird Science either, that movie's just mean-spirited and not funny at all.


I really hated TREE OF LIFE; I know it's popular here but for me it was pandering, superficial mess and I actually felt a little insulted by it.
AMERICAN BEAUTY - same reaction.
CABIN IN THE WOODS - I liked the premise but two hours of Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard going "LOOK HOW CLEVER WE ARE" - no thanks.

(ok, the Coens are an acquired taste.)



Everything Fincher has done post-ZODIAC has been a pretty crushing disappointment to me.

I'm with Bob here-I detest Woody Allen films and avoid them like I would...uh...Woody Allen films.
He's whiney,annoying little f**k.
So am I...but I dont make movies.

Also...
.GONE WITH THE WIND-Pretty-And pretty dam boring.
.CITIZEN KANE-Yaaawn-I dont see the "innovative" in this film. Boring.
.The GODFATHER-Way too talky-kill somebody,already-this is a gangster movie! Wheres Robinson,Cagney and Bogart when ya need 'em?
.TITANIC-AHHHH!
.GREASE-Double AHHHH!AHHHH!
.Pixar films. Disney films.The new 3-D films give me a f**king headache.Romantic comedies. Ben Stiller. "Slacker" movies-Silent Bob and his shmuck buddy,movies based on old TV shows,movies revolving around guys "partying",anything with that guy from SNL who used to sit next to the copy machine-wtf is his name-Adam Sandlers buddy-OH! Adam Sandler films-and-DAM!-the Douche Bigelow guy...ah-whatever-I don't like him.
.Most anything with Slyvester Stallone-I hated ROCKY and the Rambo films. The only films he was good in-the LORDS of FLATBUSH and DEATHRACE 2000.

One movie I really thought was mean-spirited and unfunny was Ferris Bueller's Day Off.  The guy's just a despicable, manipulative piece of crap.  Maybe it's because I had a car in high school and met quite a few little beggars like him.

Forgot about it, but since it was mentioned: Fincher's Zodiac. One of the very few serial killer movies that don't appeal to me.
I want my serial killer movies to be scary, or at least creepy. Zodiac was none of that to me.
It is a well made drama, I'll give it that. However, Fincher should have called it Graysmith or something.

THE EXORCIST - every time I try and try and watch this I get so bored I end up switching off. THE OMEN knocks it out the park in every respect.

ERASERHEAD and BLUE VELVET - I love some of D. Lynch's movies, don't get the appeal of these 2 though.

SCARFACE - it may be iconic in some respects but I find it tedious and amateurish

ALIEN/S - these are considered epics, but the concept just doesn't intrigue/scare me, they're too emotional and draining. don't really buy sigourney weaver's character either. this'll make me sound like a dimwit but give me SPECIES over ALIEN anyday!

SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION - again, slow. drama. draining. emotional. can't watch.

I'm not really the biggest fan of any of the rocky films. Don't get me wrong the first has a solid enough of a story but it stretches that story into really implausable sequals.
