Livin' Laughin' Lovin' - Just Me and Sammers, my homebirthin' little girl.
The Royal Tenenbaums This movie just bored me to tears, so boring that I've already forgotten about the offensive parts.
|The Blair Witch Project A pathetic excuse for a movie. And I can't believe that the producers lied and said the footage and murders were real.|
|Harold and Maude This movie is too depressing!|
Most recent Bad movie I have seen would have to be The Good Shepard!
Soooo long, so boring, emotionless main character, so slow and....
I HATE the main character!!!
He sooooo needs to get his priorities in order. He had his future daughter-in-law murdered and his unborn grandchild WTF!
Movies i HATED (cant pick just one):
Napoleon Dynamite (DUMB. total waste of 2 hours)
Pulp Fiction (HATED this one - my dad and i rented it and we had to turn it off at the rape scene. We took it back to Blockbuster that same night)
Kill Bill (saw the first 30 mins of it and turned it off, disgusted)
Natural Born killers (still sickened by it 6 years later)
Portrait of a Lady ( I love period flicks, but that one was a total SNOOZE)
Anything Quentin Tarantino (:Puke
Collateral (DH LOVES this movie so much i had to buy it for him for father's day.HATE HATE HATE it.)
House on Haunted Hill (the late 90's remake) - i LOVED the origional one from the 60's, but hated the new one with a passion
The Exorcist: - i know everyone probably loves that movie, but i just hated the whole thing.
I wanted to throw up to. YOu don't want me to tell you how that scene ended either.
The baby lived through the movie anyways.
Applejuice I had forgotten all about Solaris That movie was agonizing! and s-l-o-w. My Dad went to see it in the movie theater because he likes science fiction and thought it sounded like a good sci fi flick...and he took a nap right there in the theater!
Ok, I haven't seen it posted on this thread yet, but the ONLY movie I have ever walked out on was Borat. I know many people found it hysterical, but I thought it was degrading and racist...and it takes ALOT to insult me.
heh, true story.
we don't see many films in the theater. So when we had an opportunity, dh said it was my choice about what film to watch. I don't pay attention to reviews and stuff, so when he mentioned Borat, describing it as "a documentary about a guy from Kazakhstan visiting America", I thought it sound interesting. I used to work with folks from Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan many years ago, so I know something about the region/culture.
I didn't realize he was being sarcastic. I had heard nothing about the film.
So the film starts, and I am thinking "but that guy doesn't look like he is from Kazakhstan. He looks more Russian, but what kind of Russian accent is that? He isn't speaking Russian. Wait, that village doesn't look like it is in Kazakhstan at all - but it looks like Romania!"
And I am getting more and more confused - until finally about 20 minutes into the show, I get it. I turn to dh, just to be sure, and ask "This isn't for real, right? This is a joke, right?" And he looks at me like i have two heads.
We would have walked out if it hadn't been the first film we saw in the theater in nearly a year.
Yes, it was ridiculous. Some funny parts, I admit, but i just don't get why they had to say it was from kazakhstan when they clearly did NO research at all about the actual country. Just make up a country - a random "Rufistan" or "Georgovia" or some such and the joke would have worked a bit better, I think.
Borat was a joke on America. The guy does really crazy stuff and gets people to go along with it bringing out their racist, homophobic and anti-anything but America feelings. Borat knows most Americans don't know squat about Kazakstan that is why he uses it as a vehicle to play the joke on Americans.
DH and I had to polish off a bottle of red afterwards just to erase it from our memories. What a miserable, sad, depressing, horrendous flick...I dunno why it got all of the awards...beautifully shot, sure, but come on...
I thought Pan's Labyrinth was the best movie I'd seen all year.
These threads are always so interesting to me. It reminds me of why movies shown on airplanes are always so bad--when you try to please everyone you end up with boring. Anything worthwhile is bound to make someone uncomfortable.
