The Exorcist- I can't stand this movie, and on everyones list of scary movies this always tops it. I just can't see why

E.T. -I've always hated that little bastard and his crappy movie

One Flew over the Cucuckoos nest- Pure crap, and not even good crap but, that agonizing crap that just takes forever to come out and when it does it's just so painfull that  it lasts all day long.

None come to mind.  Life's too short to worry about hating things.  If I don't like something then I don't like it, but I don't spend a lot of time thinking about it or worrying that I'm supposed to like it because others do or whatever.

Sorry, but I hang out here because I enjoy bad movies and stuff most people don't like and like to talk about what I like and hear from others about what they've enjoyed that I might enjoy seeing.

Reading threads where people complain about what they hate just kinda depresses me and seems to run counter-intuitive to what this forum is all about

Out of Africa.  Mom & sis loved this movie, because of the book.  I found it to be slow and the main characters unsympathetic.  If it is so goddamn hard to make a living in Africa, go back to Denmark.

First, I must say to Sam that I am one of the people who likes the movies that he hates. I think THE EXORCIST and CUCKOO'S NEST  are classics. I have my problems with ET, but I can't say that I hate it.

Anyway, here is my brief list:

* All STAR WARS movies. I don't really hate them, but I don't worship them nearly as much as most people. For sci-fi, I'd prefer to watch WAR OF THE WORLDS any day.

* Most movies that have some sort of "lore" to them that a bunch of nerdy guys know about and argue about all the time. EXAMPLE:

Nerd #1: "No, Girmax's father was a wood elf and he was the only descendant of Pava-Muli who knew the whereabouts of the Book of Suffering."

Nerd #2: "That's impossible. Xiran also knew the whereabouts of the Book of Suffering because Gugamel the Wizard conjured up a vision of it before he was cast into the Pit of Eternal Woe."

Nerd #1: "Yes, but that was only after he learned that Tipineus was really the king's brother."

Nerd #2: "Actually, he was only the king's half-brother. He killed the king's real brother in order to gain access to the Valley of Sorrow."

Nerd #1: "But he lost his sister's locket in the valley when he was trying to recover the Sword of 1,000 Burdens."


* SCREAM. When it first came out, everyone was saying, "It's so scary. You have to see it." So I did. What I saw was a guy running around wearing a mask and carrying a knife. Geez, where have I seen THAT before?


"Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me the hell alone."

Terms of Endearment.  Most cynically manipulative piece of crap I've ever seen.  I left the theater outraged (how stupid is that??).

Chasing Amy(not enough Jay and Silent Bob),
American Beauty(stupid hippie s**t,how this turd won an Oscar anyway?),
Shallow Hal(I DON´T get turned on by fat chicks),
The Lizzie McGuire Movie(their fans hate Kevin Smith.Enough reason for me to not like this movie)

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake(nuff said,really)
The Punisher remake(ditto),
Dumb And Dumberer(the third sign of the Apocalypse)
Final Fantasy(this has WHAT to do with the video game?)
Reign Of Fire(they crapped it up when they said"dragons are not magical"),

'a clockwork orange'

my expectations were too high i think.

'spice world' is awesome - i used to work at a video store and that was the perfect movie to play if you didn't want anyone in the store.

Just about any movie that won a major Academy award comes to mind.

The Evil Dead series- I know I'll catch heat for it but I can't stand these movies.

If God is watching us, the least we can do is be

I love GUYVER 2: DARK HERO. Like an R-rated Power Rangers. Still not as good as the anime though.

You won't catch Hell from me for it. I liked the original Evil Dead but I thought the sequels got too silly and self-consciously "cute", the same qualities that I felt eventually downgraded Raimi and company's Hercules and Xena T.V. shows (to say nothing of the execrable "Jack of All Trades"! )
A little cutesy humor goes a long way with me and after awhile in Army of Darkness my wife and I started rolling our eyes and saying "Yeah, it's ANOTHER visual reference to ANOTHER movie! We GET IT already! "

Forrest Gump:  How can ONE man do all of THAT in one lifetime?  And if you bad mouth the film, people will think that something is wrong with you.  You can't win an argument about this film.

« Reply #14 on: May 10, 2003, 04:10:52 PM »

I f**kin' hate Forrest Gump too, you are not alone! I find that move offensive. "Run forest, run....." I was hoping he'd get run over by the goddamn truck! In a similair vein, every scene in Titanic not involving the ship sinking, or that had that rotten bastard DiCaprio in it was agony (too bad he wasn't eaten by critters during the filming of Critters 3 huh?)
  I also LOATHE Dancer in the dark, which all the critics love. It might have something to do with the fact that I can't stand Bjørk's music, but then again, it might just be a s**tty movie that's been mistaken for a work of genuis... Absolutely terrifyingly horrible.
