There was a thread about games before, so I thought I'd make one about movies.

What movies does everyone seem to like and you hate?
Shakespeare in love - Who gave an academy award to this? Boring...
Braveheart - same as above, the movie that has a huge fan base
The Lord of the Rings - I didn't like the books (read only the first two though) and the movies were too long and boring
Moulin Rouge - God, another love story, and this one was dull...

What movies does everyone seem to hate and you like?
Chicago - Tons of people hate this movie and the Oscar it got, but I just loved it, one of my favourites...
The Exorcist - Many people don't like it, saying it's not scary it all; come on people: this wasn't intended to be a horror movie, personally, I think it's a great drama
Crash - Hate to mention this, cause a lot of people like it, but it's just that some people say it's Oscar should have gone to Brokeback Mountain, which imo, is a good film, but nowhere near as Crash

:D

Evryone likes, I hate:

Rambo - cause it's gay watching a muscled man killing whitout meaning like in an arcade game.

Any fag love story mixed with physical comedy - eww...

Westerns - not my kind of movie

Brokeback Mountain - ...

evryone hates, I like:

Braveheart - No words to describe this masterpiece

The Godfather - You say boring? Boring is watching two people make out and be happy it all ends fine in the end... Don't you prefer a dead horse's head on your bed and find out that your legs were sawn off? I do.

Braveheart
The Godfather

I think those aren't really the movies everyone hates.
The Godfather got more IMDb stars than any other currently existing movie. :)

Movies everybody loves and I hate:

Notting Hill - God, that movie sucked.
Lost in Translation - Which sucked even more than Notting Hill, if that's even believable.
The Wickerman - The creepiest (and suckiest) movie I have ever had the misfortune to watch.

As for the other way round, I can't think of any at the moment. Perhaps Unleashed. Forget Brokeback and Crash (both great movies) - Unleashed derserved every single film award going.

Wow, mind you don't try and be too offensive now!



People Love, I hate:



Saving Private Ryan - WW2 things just make me want to stop watching them or snooze. Sadly.

Schindler's List - Same as ^

Spiderman - I've never been a fan of Marvel

The sound of music - Lots like that. I see that, and I just want to shout AAAARGHH AAGGHHH NO! TURN IT OFF! TURN IT OFF NOW!!!

Groundhog Day - I don't like Bill murray or Andie mcDowell, and this movie is just repetative and boring to me.


Everyone hates and I love:

*Im actually having difficulty thinking of any. I'll edit it once I see more replies and see if any inspire me !

I haven't seen it, but it has Scarlett Johansson in it :cln:
It can't be that bad with her in it! :D

Movies I love but everybody else hates:
Most of the James Bond Movies.

A lot of people think 6 Batman movies are better than 20 James Bond movies!
IMO anyway! :p

Believe it. My friend Cat described it perfectly when she said "It's just two hours of Bill Murray walking around looking depressed". :p

Oh well.
He's probably what spoiled it.
Scarlett Johansson must have been the only good thing about it.

I actually liked that movie.

Does Star Wars Episode I and II count as movies that everyone likes? Because I hated them. I was more interested on looking at the ceiling that at the screen. Everyone (almost) loves The Grudge and I don't, quite a few animated movies that came out recently and can't think of anything else...

Everyone likes, I hate:

* Batman (original)

* Last Action Hero

Everyone hates, I like:

* Charlie's Angels (the first one, not the pump second film)

* Garfield (1 & 2)

Can't think of anything else.

Everyone likes, I hate:

Spider-man 2. I do actually like it but I don't see what's so great about it.

Everyone hates, I like:

The Matrix Revolutions. According to most people this is the weakest of the trilogy. It doesn't match the original in my opinion, but I prefer it to Reloaded.

Bill Murray being Bill Murray is the coolest. Oh yeah so is the soundtrack..anything with 'Just Like Honey' in it rules. :D

Same here. I feel asleep during SW ep. 1, very boring IMO (but I am a fan of the other SW movies)
And the first Harry Potter movie as well, I flipped the channel when I saw how boring it was...

31-08-06, 20:55
Harry Potter gets in my list as well, I can't stand those movies.

Kam Last Action Hero is great :D :tmb:

Episode 1 is the best SW-movie, imo :tmb: I'm sure every single SW-fan on the planet would beg to differ, though :p

Oh right, Harry Potter. Hate him.

I like the prequels, but calling Episode 1 the best in the series is pushing it. :p

- Harry Potter (WHY DO YOU HATE HARRY?! :()
- Mr. & Mrs. Smith
- Date Movie (what? I thought it was funny! :p)
- Scary Movie 2, 3 (I want to see 4!)

Uhh... That's really all I remember at the moment, there are tons of others though.. I love movies. :D

Sorry to say, but it's the best super hero franchise in both movie and games. I've seen the other super hero movies. Doesn't compare to Spider Man, at all.

MARVEL OWNS DC! :D

That's a comic book fold bias. I prefer Batman Begins, Spider Man was wayyy too ham fisted for my liking. Don't even get me started on the sequel.

Everyone likes, I hate:

2001 - A Space Oddisey. After the movie I just felt WTF? I watched three or four hours straight and at the end still didn't know what this was all about.

Anything with Hugh Grant. I've yet to see a good movie with him.


Everyone hates, I like:

Ocean's Twelve. Nowhere near as good as the first one, but good for a laugh or two.

Cars. To be honest, not everyone hates it, but the reviews I've seen on the internet were generally much more negative than I could have imagined.


The list could certainly be longer, but I'm out of ideas at the moment.

Stuff that I don't like:

- Lord Of The Rings. I just don't like fantasy.
- Harry Potter. See above.
- Scary Movie. You can't parody a movie that doesn't take itself seriously (Scream).
- Shrek. Just not funny IMO.
- Star Wars. Boring and childish.

Stuff I like:
- Classic movies. The fact that most of them are b&w is not a reason not to watch them.
- Shocker. A highly underestimated Wes Craven movie.
- The Mission: Impossible movies. Not even Tom Cruise could ruin those. ;)

Generally speaking I think it's sad many people seem to think Hollywood didn't start making movies until 5 years ago. Come on, try watching one of your parents' old favorites once in a while, there are so many great movies to discover.

If you don't believe me, look at what both the movies and games for Spider Man got. ;)

With Spider Man 3 coming up...and with the cast. It's going to blow all movies out of the water.

Batman Begins was alright, still pretty lame though. Why are they showing how he became Batman? Shouldn't that be the first movie? There wasn't anything too special or that jumped out at you in the movie.

Spider Man had more action and amazing special effects. Morely in Spider Man 2. The fights between Doc Ock and Spider Man were always good.

Got that right! :tmb:
