deep blue sea was an absolute waste of time
A.I was pretty dire too

i watched some lopez thing the wedding planner?

Agree with Matrix. Just didn't get that one at all. Also Saving Private Ryan. Didn't find even one minute of that enjoyable.

Lost in translation-it really was in my case!

Mindles Wed 01-Aug-07 09:37:43

Spirited Away. Stupidly I watched it twice, second time I thought, it can't honestly be as bad as I remember. It was worse.

aDad Wed 01-Aug-07 09:38:33

A.I. was 100% terrible

Dungeons and Dragons

dear god... I fell asleep half way through.

Vanilla Sky
What a pile of self regarding nonsense

think I sat through some of Notting Hill once, I have no idea why and don't intend to again.

LA Confidential, seen it twice but still no idea what was going on (I think I fell asleep a few times on both occasions though, which probably didn't help...)

Oh I had managed to block Vanilla Sky from my memory!

Katy44 Wed 01-Aug-07 09:43:24

we saw "Legend of Hell House" or something like that recently
Absolute rubbish, apart from a hilarious scene with a killer cat - worth watching just for that

From my dim and distant youth, Absolute Beginners - the only film I've ever walked out of.

There are so many howlers that I've seen with the DSs but Thomas and the Magic Railroad is right up there at the top of the list. I also vaguely remember one of the Batman films that seemed to go on for days.....and days.....and days....

Natural Born Killers. Absolute garbabe. I so desperately wanted to walk out of the cinema.

Out of Sight with J-Lo and George Clooney. What a pile of poo - everybody made such a fuss about how great it was - it was pure drivel!

Katy44 Wed 01-Aug-07 09:44:53

Deep Blue Sea was a waste of time I agree, but the scene where he was making the big impressive emotional speech only to be eaten half way through it was so funny!
(Sorry if that's spoilt it for anyone but you didn't come on this thread for recommendations, did you??)

OhNo40 Wed 01-Aug-07 09:44:55

A I - dire.
Matris 3 - I hadn't seen 1 or 2 which didn't help but I was totally lost.
Dim Sum - a Chinese film in the 1980s which consisted of a lot of shots of the family's shoes.
Some buddy movie about two americans going on a tour of the Napa Valley or another US wine region. Didn't get to the end of that.

bagsundereyes Wed 01-Aug-07 09:44:59

northender - i watched Lost in translation a second time, because everybody kept going on about how great it was, and i'd convinced myself I'd missed something first time round

It was still shite.

I'll prbably be in a minority of one, but I really could have done with the time I wasted on Citizen Kane back as well.

ohno40 - the buddy movie sounds like "sideways", a little odd

CatIsSleepy Wed 01-Aug-07 09:47:23

King Kong-probably the loudest film I've ever seen/heard and at least an hour too long.

MyEye Wed 01-Aug-07 09:48:41

bitter moon
white hunter black heart
Tom and Viv
that Ali G movie

Trinityrhino Wed 01-Aug-07 09:48:42

very true katy44, thats the only bit that I enjoyed

petunia Wed 01-Aug-07 09:49:01

True Lies (fell asleep in the cinema) and just recently, The Da Vinci Code.

Pinkchampagne Wed 01-Aug-07 09:49:05

Golden eye.
