Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and Return of the King- The first one was okay, seemed to be focused on characters and had Sean Bean, the next two practically became games of World of Warcraft. Legolas surfing? Boy did Jackson fuck up!

Godfather 1 and 2- Maybe it's the fact that they have aired on tv more times than it has rained since the earth has formed but holy cripes am i sick of these.

Terminator 2- A cheesy effects-vehicle with sappyness and robodaddy.

Batman Begins- Boredom Begins

Raging Bull- Seemed pointless, a lot of arguing and fighting and then at the end "woops sorry bout all that folks"

Casino Royale 06- The first boring Bond movie. The love story was cringeworthy with George Lucasian dialogue "my armor is all gone you stripped it from me" "whatever i am i'm yours" Worthless villain, the M is just getting annoying, boring card game, unoriginal action ripped off from past movies.

Ditto on The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I hate respect those films. Conceptually, they're great, but they were just too damn boring in parts.

We talking about the same movie? The Tom Greene <<>> "Freddy Got Fingered"?? That only made 14M. Cost that much too by they way. BTW, thank you America for making that Greene's first and last starring vehicle.

ID4 - so ridiculously stupid I almost walked out of the advance screening. I say almost because I had to see if the third act could recover. One computer virus on an alien ship later I wished I had walked out.

MIB - a.k.a. ID4-2.

You named some of my favorite films in this thread...you bastards.


I would like to say that Lord of the Rings (all of them) and Star Wars (all of them) are the worst movies ever made.

Since you used the word hate... I'd have to go with...

Gladiator/300 I don't mind me some hack 'n slash action, but these two films are awful IMHO

The Sixth Sense - I really did not care for this movie at all.

I know everybody has to get their two cents in about it... some movies popping up are surprising... but I saw Jaws listed a bit back... really? Really??

This works into my theory that you have to be a certain age where some films really grab you. Citizen Kane for example, I think it is one of the most boring films ever made. I understand though if I was alive at the time when it came out that I probably would have been enthralled by it considering it was cutting edge back in those days.

2001 - I can't stand the 70's decor, it takes me right out if it.

Titanic - The movie should have been just two hours of the ship sinking without the Romeo and Juliet subplot. The last hour is fantastic though.

Boondock Saints - It was never successful but has a small group of fans mainly from the Boston area. The movie is horrible on every level.

Scarface - Laughably bad, not good and Pacino is too over the top for me. He has been doing a Foghorn Leghorn impression since Scent of a Woman.

Crash - This should have been called Coincidence- The Motion Picture.

Independence Day - The aliens would have won, thank god they are Mac compatible and we could upload a virus. Why would such an advanced civilization need some sort of countdown? So Jeff Goldblum could discover it? Why not just say everyone attack at 4pm? Just stupid in every way. Randy Quaid is the most horrible character ever conceived. I never want to see him ever again because of this stupid film. I'm also being kind by calling it "a film" I love the fact that Vivica A. Fox works in the worst strip club ever - No Nudity! It must be very successful.

Pretty much anything by Roland Emmerich except Universal Soldier (guilty pleasure).

I agree on the LOTR Two Towers and Return of the King. I love the first movie but there are so many things I hated in the last two movies. The Return of the King I hated altogether especially any scene with the Dead Men of Dunharrow. Oh and Viggo singing.

I never watched any Bond movie before I viewed Casino Royale. You nailed it, the love story, obvious betrayal, and the boring card game. I sold the DVD the same week I bought it.

Kill Bill 1: The over the top blood and fight scenes.

300 was very nice visually, but I couldn't get into it.

Sin City: I didn't like the look of it. Hated every word out of Marv's mouth.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: I don't normally watch these types of movies this was a first. I seriously disliked the jumping across rooftops, almost flying. That girl who stole the sword were very annoying to me.

POTC 2 & 3: I left the theater hating the second movie. My sister swore it wasn't that bad. By the time the third came out I had very, very low expectations so I ended up not being as upset as my sister was. The Will and Elizabeth marry me scene at the end of POTC 3 with the fight, then let's stop and kiss was cringeworthy.

Stars Wars: I don't like any of the movies except Return of the Jedi.

The Prestige: I love the Illusionist, but the Prestige was like a big sabotage tag game. You did this to me so now I'm going to do this to you. I hated that back and forth between Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale, and Hugh jackman's obsession with discovering his tricks. I like the last 10 minutes though.

No need to get testy. I know you said "FGF" made more money than a couple films mentioned. Not disputing that. I'm asking if we're talking about the same film. "PCU", although it made less, seems to be more of a cult film. And I still hear people talking about it once in a great while. NO ONE talks about "FGF" anymore. Hey, I hate it like you do. Probably more so. But my question is, is it really "very popular"?

I obviously made a flub, goddamn man, get over it.
