Your best and Worse blindbuy
 
Best- It has to be The Devils rejects. I was into this movie from the start to the end. It's much better than a 1000 corpes made by rob zombie previously.
Good story with plenty of action and nudity. Gorey as well. Where can you find a movie with a famous XXX star ( ginger lynn)doin a clown , and a star from three's company (Terry) getting embrassed.

Worse - Das Boot. I can't believe I sat throught this whole movie over 3 hrs. I like anything that has to do with war. This was very slow movie. I excpected big things to happen at sea but nothing worth while . I enjoyed U 571 more.

Best: The Squid and the Whale, not counting movies I hadn't seen but knew that I would love.

Worst: I sell the ones I don't like, but I remember not being a fan of Kill Bill.

Best: So many to choose from because I blind buy almost everything (after doing extensive research), especially TV shows (since I don't pay for even network programming). Off the top of my head, though, I'd go with Freaks & Geeks, Arrested Development, Oz, F for Fake, Donnie Darko, Pickpocket, The Office (UK), or Kagemusha.

Worst: A Fish Called Wanda. It was exactly the sort of comedy I hate--smarmy, dumb, and full of characters with annoying tics and speech patterns. I also blind-bought and hated Black Books: Series 1.

Sanitarium 04-23-06 10:44 PM

Best: Frailty. I knew nothing about it other then that Bill Paxton directed and starred in it. It's one of my favorite movies now.

Worst: FearDotCom. Horrible, horrible movie. The negatives should been burned so no one would ever have to watch it.

Best: Spartan hadn't heard a thing about it other than David Mamet and Val Kilmer were involved.
Batman: Begins Never got a chance to see it in the theater, but was pretty sure I'd like it.


Worst:Ghosts of the Abyss I love James Cameron and everything Titanic, but this was one boring unspectacular documentary. Perhaps it lost some of its effect with the lack of 3-D.
To Live and Die in L.A. I had heard such great things about it but this thing is so unbelievably dated, I couldn't stand it.

Best: The Station Agent. Peter Dinklage and Patricia Clarkson were both amazing.

Worst: Lost in Translation. I think this movie is horribly overrated. I can't ever imagine trying to sit through this again.

JLyon1515 04-23-06 11:08 PM

Best: I Heart Huckabees - I know a lot of people that don't like it, but I LOVED this film, the 2 disc special edition has even more goodness.

Worst: The Saddest Music in the World - I love Isabella Rossellini but this film was just slow and odd.

PixyJunket 04-23-06 11:09 PM

Best: Requiem for a Dream

Worst: Donnie Darko

Maxflier 04-23-06 11:10 PM

Best: The Last Samurai - ended up being in my top 5 all-time favorite movies.

Worst: Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrells - words just cannot express how much i hated this POS movie.

Zodiac_Speaking 04-23-06 11:14 PM

Best: Fight Club

Worst: Halloween 6 - I was going to complete a Halloween series, but after seeing that, I'd though better of it.

This isn't fair post, considering I spend most of my money on blind buys anyway. I think I have a good ratio.

SuperBatMan 04-23-06 11:15 PM

Best: Batman Begins or the LOTR EEs
Worst: King Kong. Not a bad movie, but not as good as I was expecting.

kovacs01 04-23-06 11:26 PM

Best: L4yer Cake

Worst: Extreme Ops -- i didnt make it 10 minutes into this. its like a 2 hour mountain dew commercial.

GeoffreyL 04-23-06 11:27 PM

Best:Ghost World,Rebecca,Ginger Snaps. I only see about 2 movies a yr. in the theater, so most stuff from about the last 5 yrs I buy just based on trailers or the reviews here.

Worst: Gigli,House of the Dead, The Neverending Story III.

Heartagram 04-23-06 11:40 PM

Best: Too damn many that i cant pin point one, all I can think of particularlly are Waking Life, I Heart Huckabees, and Ran: CC

Worst: thought i would enjoy watching some 80's cheese in the form of The Garbage Pail Kids holy fuck was i wrong.

I actually went to see Ghost of the Abyss in the theaters. It still was boring even with the 3-D effects.

GrimTangent 04-24-06 12:29 AM

Best: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Worst: Full-time Killer

Prowler 04-24-06 01:54 AM

Best: 24 Season 1

Worst: Vanilla Sky

hardercore 04-24-06 04:02 AM

Best: Both volumes of Kill Bill. My first taste of Tarantino magic, and then I went on to pruchase Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. Pulp is the best of the lot, but they're all wildly enjoyable with Dogs being the weakest effort.

Worst I'm going to definately have to say Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. I regret the purchase so much, the film is just so so so overrated and I did not really enjoy it. It's what's made me sure not to make anymore blind purchases.
