But DeNiro gets whacked. Best part of the movie!

American Beauty gets my vote. I usually don't watch films that critics love but the wife got me to watch it with her. Early in the movie where the idiot kid is filming a fucking bag blowing in the wind like it's some message of truth I decided that I was in hell. And I actually sat through that pile of shit to the end, hate to admit it. Can't remember why though. It's one of my great moments of mystery.

Titanic is a close second. Just a boring waste of time to sit through while your wife cries at the tragedy of it all. I mean there are romantic movies that she cries over that I don't mind. Like I actually enjoyed Somewhere In Time when she made me watch it. But get out The Notebook and I'm fucking gone.

Sometimes I wonder how people can find some storylines to be interesting. And when that type of thing is tied with an artsy-fartsy cast and crew it's a winning combination for the media. :laugh4:

Birdman got a 91% tatometer on rotten tomatoes.

I picked the movie one night because of the great reviews.

The wife will never let me let me forget.

I have never seem such a terrible movie ever.

‘Out of Africa’ has to be the most boring movie ever. It got all of the awards that year so I figured it must be good. I couldn’t even finish it.

I started but do not think I finished Lord of the Rings.

I remember I wasn’t in the mood for it, but never went back to it.

Personally, it felt to me more like one of those movies critics really wanted to be great but wasn't.

I thought it went WAY off the deep end of explaining the joker at the expense of a real movie.

I just don't need to go to a movie to be beat over the head by an agenda.

In case you couldn't tell.... HATED it.
I started but do not think I finished Lord of the Rings.

I never could get into any of them. Constant dark wars, trees fighting, dark drippy, everything ugly.... WTF?

Avatar is another for me. Yawn.

Cloverfield - film a whole movie with a shaky hand held...? Fuck off.

Cloverfield is fucking hot garbage, all that bullshit for your ex? I wouldn't even pack my exes shit for her, shoved it into a trash bag and told her to pick it up before the garbage men did.

Got himself and his family killed because over his ex.

Why the hate for Joker? I think its a masterpiece,

Because the fact that it promotes incel behavior (his flat-out creepy behavior toward the lead woman), shits on people with mental illness (yet another Hollywood movie that says everyone who is mentally-ill is predisposed to violence), and is flat-out unrealistic in terms of police procedures?

What I mean by the last one is that the Joker should've been arrested long before he killed the talk-show host: killing the three Wall Street guys on the train (he was dressed in the same suit, there was a witness, etc.), stalking the Waynes (and assaulting Alfred), assaulting a person at Arkham Asylum, killing his mother (he was the only person in the room), and killing his former coworker with a witness.

There should've been a whole squad of officers ready to arrest Joker, not just the same two that questioned him. So unrealistic.

Avatar is another for me. Yawn.

Yes, that's another one I hated. I thought that the whole plot was cliche, and I disliked most of the characters (except for Michelle Rodriguez's pilot, and only because she was hot).

Agree with most of these

Additional ones

Million Dollar Baby - first hour was good second hour bored me to tears - already did second hour with another movie done by Richard Dreyfuss

Mystic River - decent movie but hate Clint Eastwood Endings

And any movie that starts with I am dead in one year I always want to walk out of

Hello American Beauty. I think there were others that did that.

Not a major movie, but The Constant Gardener sucked, sucked SUCKED. And then SUCKED some more.

Aren't you supposed to be rooting for the protagonists? Aren't you supposed to feel bad for the woman who got whacked? I fucking hated the protagonist and fucking hated his deceased wife (featured in many flashbacks). I want those hours of my life back, dammit.

Chariots of Fire.

The only movie I've been to where the movie manager, he addressed the audience before the movie started and offered refunds for people who left within 30 minutes of the movie starting.

That's amazing.

Not because I thought it was a great movie. Saw it once (that was enough for me), and thought it was OK.

It's amazing because Chariots of Fire won an Academy Award for Best Picture in 1982. Amazing that a movie manager thought it was so bad that he would offer refunds. Makes me wonder if he had other issues with the film.

We lived in a very blue collar tiny area and with the first 20 minutes being no dialogue with just music and people running, I think he had a slew of people asking for refunds the first couple showings, so he just started with that for the rest of the showings.
