    Billy, Billy Jack, gobbles 'em down and the plate comes back for more Billy Jack.

    Or am I confused?

    Its about storytelling, thus the title. I was entertained, especially the part where the main characters are lost as to what to do after shooting the kid and decide they better get to the writer's house.

    For me. Leaving Las Vgas was the worst film I've ever seen. What a waste of time. Movies like that are great for actors, but they leave the audience wanting to get sober.

    Born on the Fourth of July had the same effect on me. Great performance, but it was so real I wanted out of the wheelchair at the end of the movie.

    I don't go to movies to be depressed.

    And those last 3 Star Wars movies, indeed, were awful. They were like watching video games.

    I didn't think it was boring, exactly. Just awfully self-congratulatory. I just want the director to get out of the way and tell a story.

    Re: Movies you always wanted to see that dissapoint

    I found a copy of a Pink Panther movie that I had not seen. I picked it up and tossed it on the "view when you have time" pile.

    There were a couple of Pink Panther movies I thought were pretty well done (and some that were crap). They weren't masterpieces, but enjoyable. But in any event, I was jazzed to watch one I hadn't already seen.

    Turns out that Peter Sellers died before the film was finished. So the movie is about him disappearing and then there are a bunch of flashbacks (which were just sceens from previous movies cut and pasted into place). Basically it was the same clips of him falling down and being an idiot that I had already see 1,000 times.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    The Big Lebowski. One of the dumbest movies ever made. I can't believe I wasted two hours watching.

    "Friday the 13th" - not only was it stupid, but at no point did a dude in a hockey mask show up to kill people.

    We did a marathon of horror movies one year in college, and it was a world of disappointment.

    More recently: "Meet the Parents." I don't think I laughed once the entire time.
