Totally agree with your choice of Star Wars 3-6.
The first two were let downs, the second being the worst.
Agree with dropping Spidey Trilogy. The first was pretty good but the other two were just too far. Even for a comic book movie.

I see you're not a comic book movie fan.

All Batman and Superman movies dropped. Burton's first Batman and Nolan's 2 Bat movies were all good. Supe 1 & 2 were good.

You dropped Critters Collection though? The first one was pretty funny, the sequels were pap though.

No Jurassic Park either? Aww. Ok the second wasn't an improvement but the first one should have a spot on everyone's shelf.



You're right, I'm definately not a comic fan. Super heroes don't float my boat. That's also why the Superman films are gone (never liked them) and, as for Batman, I think Batman Returns is the best by far, but after that it's the 1960's Batman for me.



I'll take this over all the other Batman films, even Batman Forever which at least has Drew in it (although far too briefly.)



I can't take Batman seriously, that's why the newer ones aren't on the list. Also, Christian Bale as Batman? Holy stupid growly voice, Batman!

I thought the first Critters was ok, though I have to say that I've not seen it for a very long time, so I might not even go for that, now. If I caught it on tv about 30 minutes in and there was nothing else on, I may get into it, but that's no recommendation to own it.

Definately no Jurassic Park. One of the most disappointing films I've ever seen. At least Pete Postleswaite is in the sequel. Not that I finished watching that film, either.



Ok, I'm going to try and compete with Used Future's collection. Here goes...

Overall pic. Whole lot is about 5 feet tall.

Close up of singular movies. Two are missing from the photo though, Avatar and The Expendables. Avatar hadn't been bought at the time of the picture and Expendables is at my Brother's house.


Close up of singular movies that don't fit in the slots due to dopey cardboard sleaves.


---

The collections, franchises and originals-sequels that sit on top of the whole lot.






A few changes since my last list I posted, some I got rid of due to not being watched or I simply have no interest. There's still some on the list to be dumped too.
At least mine are in Alphabetical order though

The Shawshank Redemption- 2 stars
Mate, C'mon! You're kidding aren't you?



Mate, C'mon! You're kidding aren't you?
I look at Shawshank as a chick flick with dudes.
People call it the ultimate revenge movie, but it's the most overrated IMO. It wa just a boring mess that people later called a classic.



Oh...

... dear...


Shawshank is a bit boring in parts, yes, but to make a decent movie doesn't mean you have to fill it with Michael Bay explosions and machine-gun fire.

Shawshank is definitely a classic, like the other King/Darabont prison collaboration The Green Mile. Though both are quite far removed from one another in terms of atmosphere.

Shawshank is a drama with the odd hit of violence, but mainly story and plot.
Screenplay, overall plot and writing, dialogue, acting, everything basically points to drama


Shawshank is a chick-flick/chick-flick with Dudes?
It's as far removed from a 'chick-flick' as Predator 2 is.

To class it in the same vein as Notting Hill, Four Weddings or Bridget Jones' Diary is a bit of an insult to Shawshank's makers.



I liked Four Weddings and a funeral..lol! It's not chick-flick at all...Donnie!



I'm with Donnie(except the chick flick part/boring), I'd give it 3 stars. It's a good film but highly overrated.

Unreliable Narrator
Although one can extrapolate from the fact that most people have horrendous movie taste, just because it's damn popular doesnt make it a bad movie...

4 solid stars I say.



If you watch a low budget chick flick HS movie with a mean dean instead of a mean warden then it's pretty damn similar. The seen where he plays classical music and everyone suddenly has a change of heart I was thinking "are you f*ckimg kidding me". That's something straight out of a low budget Indian movie. People felt inspired, all I felt was tht I'm ready for a goods night rest. I was literally forcing myself to keep my eyes open during the movie. IMBD putting this as the number one film of all time is a slap in the face to all of the film industry.



When he played the classical music, it was about defiance with tiranny! And he could to it. Though he spent 1 month in the hole!



The Shawshank redemption was a great film. Four stars. It is trendy these days to call it overrated (same with Forrest Gump).
I truly don't like it. And IMO its not just overrated it's plain out bad. I wouldn't say it just to be different, I say it because its my opinion. I could hardly keep my eyes open this boring film.



It is trendy these days to call it overrated (same with Forrest Gump).
I don't know about others, I'm certainly not calling it overrated because it's trendy to thank you very much, I actually think it's overrated and have done for years.



Four more for the collection after HMV priced them wrong. Should have come to £41... I payed £24.
