    That Jim Carrey spotless mind movie was awful

    that last movie by Heath Ledger with the traveling carnival was brutally bad.

    That Bill Murray movie where he is in Japan was brutally boring.

    I don't get Unbreakable. It was boring and nothing happened. :dontknow:

    I did like Signs, and the Village,

    Please explain why unbreakable was good.

    First time I watched it, it sucked.

    About a year ago I watched it again, and it still sucked.

    Fight club (I may be prejudiced against Pitt)
    Avatar (Couldn't get all the way through it)
    Scarface (Lots of cool scenes but not a great movie)
    Goodfellows (sorry, It was good, not great)
    Rocky(s) (Stalone is such a horrible actor!)
    Titanic (Long and boring. I love decaprio)
    Matrix(s) (Just sort of boring, some good parts)

    I left a couple off of the list because I didn't even see them: Hangover, Brokeback Mtn.

    Multiple Oliver Stone movies. Especially Natural Born Killers and Wall Street. I also think David O. Russell is a fucking hack. The Fighter is the best thing he's done.

    Agree about Stone. I did like Wall Street. Skipped JFK & Nixon. I don't like blatant revisionist history. I liked Silver Linings and a couple others. Plan to see American Hustle.

    Since I mentioned a Scorese film, I have to tell you that he could probably make a film of someone taking a shit interesting. I just think Goodfellows is overrated. I could watch Hugo over and over. Loved Wolf of Wall Street too.
