I know I will be run out of town for this one.

Even though "A Christmas Story" is one of my favorite movies, I can not stand to watch "It's a Wonderful Life." I think in part it's my aversion to Jimmy Stewart. I have never watched it the whole way through.

Have you seen Hitchcock's "Rear Window" or "The Man who Shot Liberty Valance"?

If you don't want a sappy Jimmy Stewart, those are good to see.

Titanic (Most over rated movie of all time- Lance)
Forest Gump
The Color Purple
There's Something About Mary (one of the worst)
Gone With the Wind

Joe, I include all of these, and add:

Gladiator (it is still good, but NOT picture of the year).
The 2nd and 3rd Pirates of the Caribbean Movies, even though I really like Johnny Depp and Keira Knightley as actors. They are both long, boring and pointless.
The recent Superman movie- terrible



I have a general complaint about the movies- they make too many of them too long. I do not know why Hollywood thinks we want to sit in a theatre for 3 hours.

This being the summer of Part 3, I have to say that I was disappointed with Shrek 3 and Pirates 3. Too many characters in each. In the beginning of each of the series you had 3 or 4 main characters. By the last movie (maybe smirk ) there were dozens you had to follow.

Amber sez...

Pulp Fiction
Punch Drunk Love (Adam Sandler in a "serious" role)
Any horror movie

My 2 cents...

Anything by Quentin Tarantino and/or Robert Rodriguez.

And, any movie made from a "graphic novel." smirk

I went to see Pulp Fiction at a theatre and walked out after probably 10 minutes. I don't enjoy watching people being slaughtered - especially by automatic weapons!

The film version of "MASH" (with Elliott Gould and Donald Sutherland) was recently rated the "Funniest Movie Ever." I hated the series but was told I'd enjoy the film. Hated it. Every second.

Incidentally, Terry, "MASH" was the first major studio film to include the f-word. That was about 35 years ago...we've devolved quickly. Lord, have mercy!
