    Forrest Gump. I don't entirely hate the movie itself, just the excessive praise. It's just okay.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Lost in Translation - Ugh, what a boooooring movie. I agree wholeheartedly with you Dom, don't let these turkeys tell you any different!

    Mean Streets was unwatchable.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Lost in Translation might be my favorite movie ever.

    Toss up with There Will Be Blood, which probably is another divisive film on here.

    WEDDING CRASHERS...arrrrrgh! EVERYONE (including critics) seemed to love this movie and it had things I like---goofy comedy, Vince Vaughn, etc. I hated it with a passion....I did not laugh once...

    To be honest, I thought the movie was boring the first time I saw it, but the second time I saw it, I really enjoyed it.

    I had forgotten totally about it until last week, when my mother started talking about the worst movie she'd ever seen, and yep, she was talking about "Gosford Park."

    I actually liked Gosford Park. The soundtrack album was superb.

    Lost in Translation was pretty good too.

    The Blair Witch Project is my most hated movie of all time yet some critics loved it. That was the only movie that actually made me physically sick. We saw that at the drive in and had to leave before the second movie because I got motion sickness from the bouncing camera and the fake screaming.

    I never was a big fan of the Academy's choices for best movie, especially if it was a drama.

    Didn't like American Beauty and fell asleep in Lost in Translation. Those are just two big time movies off the top of my head that I really didn't like.

    Agree with Dom on Lost in Translation. Painful movie to watch. Never saw Gosford Park.

    I don't really like all the commercial hype surrounding it, but I think it's a very powerful movie.

    Oh, good one. I have no idea what was so "great" about that movie. Everyone in it was annoying.
