    Movies That You Didn't Like, But Others Did....

    Turn about is fair play..............which movies did you "pan", but others raved about..............Here's a few on my list....

    "The Bourne Supremacy".........solely for it's irratic camera-work...
    "A Beautiful Mind"..........didn't like the storyline and thought the lead was miscast..
    "House of Sand and Fog"..........totally depressing subject matter.... 42

    Titanic.... UGH (and if you want to know why go read my long rant in the Oscar's thread )

    A Beautiful Mind

    Gladiator -- really bad Special Effects, IMHO, and a certain 'hero actor' can't act IMHO


    The Star Wars prequils... I love Star Wars, I love Ewan McGreggor, but I hate that every shot is done with computers... Lucas really lost the magic with these crappy movies

    I also hate American Graffiti, but people my dad's age praise it for being a 'classic' and I just don't see why

    "A Beautiful Mind." , Any new STAR WARS movie... "Passion of Christ." too much for me to handle... maybe I wasn't in the right mood...

    For some reason, I just couldn't get into "The English Patient." Same for "Beetlejuice" & "Edward Scissorhands."

    I hated the movie version of "La Cage aux Folles," but I loved the staged musical version of it when we caught the show on the national tour.

    I couldn't come up with an answer in the other thread about movies you loved but everyone else hated, so I already posted some input on this topic.....

    A Beautiful Mind and The Hours, didn't like either....
    About Schmidt, what a bore....
    The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremecy, couldn't get into either of them, left my hubby to watch them alone...
    I guess I'm not recalling some of the others because they bored me so I just can't think of them!

    Forrest Gump. I didn't hate it but I was at a loss to undestand why people went nuts over it.

    As Good As It Gets - how this film garnered nominations - let alone Oscars - for its stars is totally beyond me. Jack Nicholson is hamming it up with the most overwrought Hollywood version of mental illness, and Helen Hunt has zero screen presence. "You make me want to be a better man". Bleah. This movie make me want to vomit!

    I totally agree with your list. Although, I did not see the Bourne Supremacy. I did see A Beautiful Mind (really thought this movie was overrated) and House of Sand and Fog (hated it).

    I think Men is Black is the stupidest movie ever made... but everyone else I know thought it was hilarious.

    This could get ugly, but here is my list...

    The Shawshank Redemption - One question to all the love ~ why?

    The Matrix Part III - Again why? I loved the first one, almost to the point of being a teenage boy about it ~ but this was a total letdown... Like the machines made it so we wouldn't catch on...

    Deliverance - outside of dueling banjos, i'd rather watch Oz on HBO

    Cape Fear - Or as I call it Cape Stupid.

    Finding Nemo - longest 76 minutes of my life

    Shakespear in Love - Whatever.

    And the winner for dumbest movie ever made.... Shallow Hal... How is this funny?

    Kwanford Wife

    "look closer" American Beauty aka the best movie EVER!!!

    I think a lot of people enjoyed it because it poked fun at Forrest's mental 'handicap'... he does get into some weird situations, and who doesn't love "Life is like a box of chocolates..." I enjoy it for the humor in history, notice how he is the one who taught Elvis his signature pelvic moves? I love the music (but then, it's John Williams so that is a given) and I love Lt. Dan....

    there were some scenes that flat didn't need to be in the movie though

    also, teh love story is a beautiful one. "Jenny and me was like peas and carrots."

    Hated (and I rarely use that word) The Godfather. Never bothered to watch any of the subsequent ones. Never will.
