I didn't love "Top Gun".  "Field of Dreams".  I have a great relationship with my dad and so I could not relate to this at all.

This thread is not relevant, because everyone's got different tastes! Like I happen to like a lot of fun romantic comedies like "Monster In-Law", and then there's that "Stealth" (Love the DTS), and "Taxi". I know many of you rate them as some of the worst of 2005. I just like them for Fun.

So forget this thread. You're only going to have a heated debate between those who love one movie, and those who hate that movie.

Wedding Crashers... I know so many people who loved it... but if we turn the thread around to what movie did you Loved that everybody else hated, I'd have to go with Deuce Bigalow 2.

Meet Joe Black is one of my favourite films. I can undersatnd why people give it a hard time though. It's a film you either connect with or not. The people who I've shown it to all did get it and were moved to tears and it was straight in their list of films to buy. Plus it's got Hopkins in very nearly every scene. If you like Hopkins there's no better film than this. If the film has you up to that point, his final scene with Brad Pitt feels so heartfelt and true in it's delivery, for someone in his charactes position (being careful not to spoil it) that issues of the films slowness or length don't amount to much. By that time, I was grateful that the film took it's time. For those that didn't connect with the film, yes I can quite see that it could be as much fun as watching carpet grow. Is this still on topic?

I like most films... Mission Impossible 2 is enjoyed by many but on each attempt to watch it I've for whatever reason turned it off after 20 minutes. Just doesn't grab my attention, the first was on a totally different level though.

MI2 is the only DVD I've seen where the extras on how they performed the stunts were more involving than the film itself. After watching the stunts featurettes I couldn't help thinking, 'that all well and good but it was all a wasted effort as we couln't give a toss for the characters and they are never in any danger. Plus, Mission Impossible has got kind of hijacked hasn't it? I like the fact that each film has a sort of guest-star director and I suppose there was always room for an action version of it but I think Ocean's Eleven is a better M.I. film as it's closer to the original concept.

"The Last Emperor".  I didn't hate it but I didn't understand the big deal.

Well, see, I tried to enjoy Wedding Crashers and yes, I will admit, I had a few chuckles, but I didn't get the whole point of that movie. Yes, Deuce Bigalow 2 was not needed, but I found it to be pretty good. I will admit I thought that 40 Year Old Virgin was the best movie of the three.

Could be because you are 14?  Some movies, not necessarily saying that Wedding Crashers is one of them, do require some life experience to be able to enjoy them.

I've mentioned two films in another thread that were letdowns for me, Lost in Translation and The Constant Gardner.  But, the film that I just couldn't get into was Sin City.  The opening sequences with Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke were very good, but I thought the film degenerated from there.  Testosterone on steroids.  I thought the sequence with the scantily clad heavily armed army of prostitutes taking back the streets from the bad guys was bad to the point of being laughable.  And the storyline with an aging Bruce Willis turning away the babe was ludicrous.  Bruce---what were you thinking???  In my book it gets an A+ for style and an F for content.  It seemed as if Frank Miller was trying to prove through his storytelling just how tough and how much of a regular guy he really is.  On the other hand, Robert Rodriguez's over the top stylized approach to Once Upon a Time in Mexico was great!  Maybe the difference is that Sin City took itself too seriously while Once Upon a Time in Mexico revelled in it's tongue in cheek action.

Tony, I blind bought Wedding Crashers and I wasn't impressed.  It was okay but not great.  I also loved 40 Year Old Virgin, but I dont' know.  Wedding Crashers just didn't do it for me.  And Adrian, you don't need "life experience" to get it.  I knew when they were trying to be funny, like when they were at dinner and she was "touching" him, I just wasn't amused.  An average movie at best.

A movie I hate that people love is Ocean's Twelve.  Again, I blind bought it and wasn't impressed.  The thing about the first one that I liked was how "cool" everyone was and how simple of a story it was, and I think Twelve got lost in the idea of making something elaborate, rather then the simplicity of Eleven.

first off, did ANYBODY like Windtalkers?

Second, anyone who didn't like The Brood didn't get it. That's said about a lot of films, but I think it applies most strongly to just about every film in the Cornenberg cannon. For instance, I didn't like Crash, and it's most likely because I didn't get it.

I'll jump in with my old "overrated discussion standby", Mystic River. It was heavy handed dreck. I've also hated pretty much every major comedy aimed at the youth circut or featuring overtly sexual humor ever. Something About Mary? Hated it. American Pie? Hated it. Meet the Parents? I was in pain. Etc Etc Etc.

Oh, and the Austin Powers movies.

Pretty much anything that is made, packaged, and sold as a comedy, I hated.

I've been to many weddings before if that is what you are meaning about life experience.

I agree "mystic River" was just an R-Rated Law and Order episode

The Brood was just a bad excuse for Cronenberg to bad mother women and it was an extremely stupid film which was a bad excuse to be even made

English would have helped though Wink

King Kong is overrated. I thought it was boring as hell (maybe that's cause it didn't have a half naked Jessica Lange in it).

A lot of people seemed to love Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but I thought it was one of the worst films of 2005.

There are loads of films I thought were overrated. War of the Worlds springs to mind (although it's still enjoyable).

The Wedding Crashers required life experience in order to appreciate it? Why can't it be that it's just not his type of humor? Why say he has bad taste and bring up his age?

And I'll have to agree with Intergalatic. Meet Joe Black is one excellent movie, yet so few people tend to agree. I'll refrain from saying any movie I dislike to avoid being flamed. Embarrassed

You evidentally did not read the whole post!  And his age is an issue when the humor is directed toward people in their 30s.  I think Tony knows we just kid him about his age and it doesn't really mean much.

My apologies. Shouldn't have butt in. I don't visit the forums too much, so I really wouldn't know.
