10 Films That Everyone Loves But You Don't

Seriously? After all that has gone on here recently?

 

No, really, I hated DiCaprio that much in the movie and his presumption to think he could act along with the jackass Cameron to think he could improve on A Night To Remember with that piece of crap.

 

Good thing you don't read I Hate Falsone, a board wherein people wished things on Jon Seda for what he did to Homicide.

 

No, sorry, I can't state too many opinions without being tasteless. I applaud your ability to do so.

 

Rock on.

Great discussion!

 

Citizen Kane is one film that I heard big talk of but when I finally saw it, I was like

"what's the big deal?" I will never watch it again.

 

I know I will get jumped on for this but I dont love Gilda maybe because I'm a woman. Gilda is a sexy, seducing movie but there were so many back then so to me it's like what's the big deal. There were so many sex, love goddesses of screen so Gilda is no big deal to me.

I still haven't watched Gilda but I didn't realize Rita Hayworth was Hispanic. There was just yesterday a PBS special which talked of this and how her dark brown hair was lightened and then tinged red and voila...Rita Hayworth! No more Margarita Carmen Cansino. Typical studio system, I imagine.

 

Interesting.

 

Also, they noted that Desi Arnaz preferred his name to be pronounced Ar-nas, not Ar-neh-z. I never knew this.

Sorry, that is a total copout. Just because there's name-calling crap all over the board doesn't mean you have to resort to it. Like the cliche says, if everybody jumped off a bridge, would you do it? It's just not true that you "can't" rise above it, you choose not to, there is a difference.

I'm "on the moral high road"? Oh, brother. You seem incapable of making a point without resorting to sarcasm one way or the other. I'm going to leave you alone. Have a nice life.

I've already posted my list but reding al of yours, I just wanted to make a few comments:

 

Sugarpuss: I'm with you on '2001', I'll never get it, it took them over two hours to say whate could have been said in a short.

 

garbofan: as for musicals, sure people do that, I proved it in my thread about 'crazy things people do'.

 

drdoolittle: I'm with you on Woody Allen, in fact except for 2 or 3, our lists are very similar, you listed some I discarded to whittle my list down to 10.

drdoolittle, your list is pretty much right on the money with mine, give or take one or two. I found it really hard to come up with a list--I think I was having a brain **** last night. Especially on the Woody Allen movies. The only ones I've liked are "The Purple Rose of Cairo" and "Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex", but that's mainly for the Tony Randall/Gene Wilder segments. A lot of my problems with his movies is Woody himself as an actor. Okay, you're neurotic. I get it. Now stop.

 

I'd also like to add any Steve Martin remake to my list, not just Cheaper by the Dozen.

 

mrsl, I couldn't even make it through the entire thing. It just...drags. Whenever I go on imdb and read the comments, I feel like I'm missing out on some great movie. Ah well!

 

Another movie to add to my list is "Blow Up". I'm just not the "art movie" type, I guess. The trailer is fantastic though.

drdoolittle, here ya go:

 

Almost any Woody Allen Movie

A Clockwork Orange

Clint Eastwood's Westerns (except for Two Mules for Sister Sara)

Titanic

Jerry Lewis movies [ the ones without Dean Martin!]

All Steve Martin remakes! All of them!

The Pink Panther series

 

I do like some of the Judy Garland movies, except for Wizard of Oz! I think it's because it was forced on me by friends and teachers so much when I was a kid.

 

More movies I dislike:

 

Marnie

Torn Curtain

Love Story

The Seven Year Itch

2001 (and the majority of art movies like Black Moon, Blow Up, etc.)

anything with Tom Cruise (his weird behavior is only part of it, I never liked the guy even before he went psycho)

 

I'm sure I'll think of more. Once you get going, it's almost like you can't stop!

Sugarpuss and drdoolittle:

 

Looks like we should all get together, We have the same taste in movies at least, and could have a rousing conversation.

 

WOW, I got through typing that with no typos, I must have been on a caffeine high when I did that last post ! ! !

None of these is a "bad" movie. Actually, several are brilliant from a technical standpoint, but mostly I take issue with the content or "message" (For instance, Taxi Driver's vigilante heroics, and A Beautiful Mind's misrepresentation of schizophrenia). All of them are beloved by a large segment of moviegoers and a few won Academy awards.

Raiders of the Lost Ark, Taxi Driver, The Deer Hunter, Forrest Gump, The Matrix, Fight Club, Scarface (1983), Kill Bill, A Beautiful Mind, Crash (2005).

You've listed here, 9 horror films that you hated, could that be a clue to you not to continue going to see horror movies? I've seen most of the ones you listed, and considering the actors in them are basically the same people, or 'type' of people is enough to convince me that I prefer the old sci-fi/horror over today's choices. Check out some of the old 1950's that TCM runs, you may find you like them.

On Jaws...I can see how that was manipulative, yes. I didn't mind it though, although I wouldn't sit through it again. Ditto to The Exorcist, and even SN Fever and I wouldn't bother with rest.

 

But Rocky Horror???? I'm curious as to why you hated it. I loved it and I don't even come CLOSE to being an "everyone" so I am interested in reading the opinion of someone who doesn't love it.

Regular readers of this board know that hardly "everybody" loves Titanic ; finding someone who even LIKES it on here is like looking for a needle in a haystack...............lol (I'm one of them)

No one seems to have mentioned "It's a Wonderful Life". I found myself facing a room full of stunned looking friends when I said how much I hated this film. George Bailey never gets out of that bloodsucking town. Furthermore, the town seemed a lot better without George - burlesque houses, bars, prostitutes. What the hell did people do in that town for fun when George was around.

 

Also, any and all of the Lord of the Rings films. I could stand the books in the 60's and films dragged on and on and on. The last one had five endings!

ME, Me me, I loved 'Titanic', I even bought it from the video store and got lucky, its a good print. I also like 'A Night to Remember' and the other 'Titanic', I'm just fascinated with the story. I admit when the last one came out, I said "how many times are they going to re-make that one", but I enjoyed it thoroughly. And I was NOT happy when DiC turned into a popsicle. I tear up at the end when Rose died and they ran the camera over the pictures showing she 'lived' as he wanted her to.

EVERYTHING made by Woody Allen (except Casino Royale). Next to Tom Cruise, he's the most overrated actor in the world.

Tom Cruise movies

Danielle Steele movies

Robocop 3

the Godfather series

Casino (I work in one, I don't need to watch it on TV!)

remakes of "Stagecoach" - why try to improve upon a classic? (None of them did)

Rocky 4 & 5 (I heard they are making #6)

Leonardo DiCaprio movies (except Titanic)
