    The Star Wars prequels. Absolutely horrible. Nice special effects but the acting and writing were terrible. They never fit with the original 3. Then Lucas had to add "young" Anakin to the last scene of episode 6 with Yoda and Obi Wan??

    They're not the worst movies ever made but in trying to mesh with 3 classics, they fall dismally short. If this is the best Lucas could come up with, they should have never been made.

    Psycho is a few great moments separated by long periods of utter boredom.

    I was totally amped to see American Beauty- it was supposed to be a masterpiece. What I saw was an artsy pretentious mess in which the teenagers understand more about life than the adults- which is what moviemakers do to pander to the demographic group that goes to see movies.

    I like Clint Eastwood, but The Bridges of Madison County annoyed the hell out of me. Lots of people who live in rural America are bright, funny, interesting people, but in this movie everyone is a one-dimensional, narrow-minded boob except the lead couple. In fact one of the basic themes of the movie is the tragedy of the Meryl Streep character having to live in the country where, of course, everyone is too stupid to live in the city.

    My wife and I are Johnny Depp fans. Well, her more than me, but we both agree that the Astronaut's Wife is the biggest piece of crap ever. Well that and anything with Theresa Russell in it.

    He's a cad and a bounder. Dr. Strangelove was a classic.

    Man, I loved a bunch of the films getting hammered here.

    Mulholland Drive is a piece of art. Startling visual images and it makes you think. Not for everyone, for sure.

    Pulp Fiction, Big Lebowski and anything the Coen brothers have ever done, Boogie Nights.... loved them all.

    And I never saw the big attraction in The Matrix, much less the sequels.

    "Friday the 13th" - not only was it stupid, but at no point did a dude in a hockey mask show up to kill people.
    Jason didn't show up until part 2 and didn't get the hockey mask until part 3, which was originally released in 3-D.

    It would be tough to watch that one now without being disappointed. It would look horrible on video, because nearly a tenth of the shots are designed so some sort of action is coming right towards you to milk the 3-D effect. It would be truthfully terrible to watch. Not that it was a masterpiece in 3-D, but it was well worth the money to see the effects. The scene where Jason gets the hockey mask is one I'll never forget, simply because he shoots a harpoon right at the camera. Awesome.

    The best "Friday" movies are parts 3 and 4, and after that the series got just plain weird.

    I didn't like the Big Lebowski either. I even watched it twice to see if I was missing something. Nope. People are always quoting from that movie and I'm just not getting why it's funny.

    Loved Fargo though.

    Meet the Parents has to be one of the most overrated comedies ever.

    I liked the original Matrix, but the second one was a massive disappointment. I never bothered with the third.

    I friend of mine was a huge Schwarzenegger fan back in the day. He actually had a calendar where he was marking off the days until they released The Last Action Hero. We still mock him over that one.

    Watched The Fountain w/ Hugh Jackman a few weeks ago. Well.... I tried to watch it anyway. Suffered through about 45 minutes of it before I realized I had no idea what was going on and turned it off. Simply horrible.

    I never cared much for 2001: A Space Odyssey

    My God you couldn't be more right. The only redeeming quality of those movies was Ray Park's swordplay.
    Witty signature.
