I cant believe pure films like Oh Brother, Scream, and Eyes Wide Shut was mentioned on this string yet I saw no garbage like...

How to Lose a Guy in 7 days
The Sweetest Thing
BioDome
Girlfight
Revenge of the Nerds 4
The Karate Kid 4
Enough with JLO
Giggli
Leprecahn Lost in Space



House of the Dead was funny for a little bit but eventually, I just grew bored and went and did something else. Also I kept falling in and out of sleep watching Van Helsing, but this could be more due to the fact that I started watching it at 11:30 after painting all day long, or maybe it really did just suck.

No it really did just suck.

You gotta be real stoned to enjoy Leprecahn Lost in Space. Probably need some acid in your system too. I made it about 30 minutes into the film before I abonded all hope.

I wouldn't go as far to say Scream is a classic. It was good, a new interpretation about how fukked up horror movies are to watch repeatedly in general but Scream is no horror classic, if you can call it a horror movie. I thought the first I know what you did last summer was better. Didn't like either them incredibly though.

Anyways, what were you thinking when you went to 2 and 3 if you couldn't finish the first one.
I wonder why. Is that a Scream mask for your portrait? ha ha ha. I'm just kiddin with ya

The ending sucked eggs. I got a similar disappointing ending from Stephen King's "IT".
I disagree. I thought the dreamcatcher was one of the best horror movies in years. I think one thing people have to understand about stephen King is he doesn't write like most horror movie writers do. He attacks the psychological part of the audience for the scares. He goes for the brain, the rationalizing side to scare you. I think his movies are genius and I loved all of his. Not to say I read his books. I don't. I'll admit I don't but man, his movies are great. He doesn't rely on the blood or the startles or any of that. It's all in your head and that's how he writes it. I'll always stand up for Stephen King because I don't think a lot of people appreciate how much of a horror genius he really is.

I definately recommend that movie and would suggest to you my dear it wouldn't not be in your interest to watch it all the way through. I always loved the movie since I first saw it. It's a tricky movie to figure out what exactly the plot is and how he accomplished it but I think it makes it even a greater movie for that. Not to mention funny ha ha ha.

one of the greatest things about scream (or to a lesser extent, the scream trilogy) was that it had a cynical look on the old slasher movies and used a clever script to pay respects to them.
and i think it is safe to call it a classic. i mean it only totally rejuvenated the slasher teen movie genre of the nineties.

the most dissapointingly boring movie i have seen in the past while was Cool Movie with brad pitt
i was expecting to see who framed roger rabbit 2, but instead got a reeking plie of ****.
i didnt get past the 6th minute, ive never been so sure of the crappiness of a movie so quickly before.

XXX
girlfight
the fu manchu movies
several bond films
finding nemo
ice age
princess blade
etc etc
much of this list is based on predictability and movies so predictable that i couldnt bother to continue watching it. of course there are many other peices of **** i have started to watch while channel surfing and couldnt bare to continue the torture



Fell asleep in Harry Potter 3 and Lep 4 was quite franky....amazing, even better with drugs in your system...like Kyuss

WARNING!! SPOILERS FROM "DREAMCATCHER" AND "IT"!
Then this is how he should have ended the movie "IT". Not with the lot of them tearing it apart with their bear hands like a bunch of children.
As for dreamcather. It was awsome untill about the last 10 minutes. Another movie ending with a dumbass looking alien creature.

Well said.



I tired to sit through Kids but it had no subtitles and I couldn't tell what the guys were saying

**is totally square**

I thought the alien was good and it's not his fault. King didn't make the movie.

I wasn't faulting king for the movie. It's just that I though that both aliens looked like they came from a b movie. The mystery of what these things were all about was building up gradually through this film and in the end it's just some plant with legs. I wish it was more original thats all.

i always find it difficult to watch the godfather movies all the way through, purely because each one takes so long to explain the story in too much detail and they're so damn long

I've never walked out of a theater.

However, I've turned off rentals, or I've walked out of the room.

Here are a few I can remember doing that with recently:

Second Hand Lions

My Fair Lady
(stopped watching at the intermission, and had no interest in watching the rest).

Equilibrium
