The Haggis Crash. Hated it for its pretense that it was more than simple-minded.

The first Star Trek. The second Star Wars. The first Harry Potter. All the Lord of the Rings (why did I watch all 3?)

Crash


Which Crash? The brilliantly dark Cronenberg film (that nobody saw) or the Oscar-winning Paul Haggis film that everybody (but me) watched?


The second one. Crash, American History X and Traffic all suffer from the same problem -- the movies are more devoted to presenting social issues than anything else. The results usually end up having shallow social statements, vast oversimplification or generalized stereotypes, predictable plot developments and twists and/or ludicrous character portrayals. If they're useful for anything, it's as a litmus test to figure out one's taste in film.

Forgot to mention Citizen Kane. Made me wanna quit film school. Orsen Welles is probably on the Café somewhere but I don't care; that movie did nothing for me.

That is near blasphemy Andrew. Citizen Kane and Wild Strawberries are the measure of all cinema.

The Cronenberg film was based upon a terrific novel by J.G. Ballard.

I thought the Star Wars movies were silly (only saw the first 2, but that's enough for me).

They're silly, but that's why most love 'em.

Apocalypse Now was just weird imo...

I dislike all the Halloweens, Jasons, Zombies, Saws, Pumpkin-heads etc.

Bazil,

Apocalypse Now, any of Jane Fonda's Movies (I refuse to watch them)

I really forget them fast, The worst ones are the ones I rent a second time because I forgot I rented it the first time and it was just as horrible.

It seems most recent recent Oscar Award movies I didn't like.
