La la land my friend loved it and raves about it, I didn’t even finish watching it.
Meet Joe Black and You’ve Got Mail.

Oh and Moulin Rouge. Managed about 10 minutes before turning it off in disgust. Which is surprising because I adore Romeo and Juliet and Strictly Ballroom. Just no

GhostIsAGoodBoi · 13/06/2019 18:56

The Notebook. Noah is a twat.

Constantsarechanging · 13/06/2019 19:12

Anchor Man

PuppyMonkey · 13/06/2019 19:22

All the Star Wars and most of the James Bond films.

Lost in Translation - zzzzz
Brokeback Mountain - mumbling zzzz
Blade Runner

Every superhero film ever made with the notable exception of Superman II.

The Shape of Water ConfusedConfused weird!

I ws looking at Netflix earlier and Geralds Game and Veronica popped up.What a load of shite they both where.

I find a lot of horror films now so disappointing.They start off good,then it just goes to pot.

And The Haunting Of Hill House was such a big let down.I know it wasnt a film,but it got a big hoo hah i thought it was going to be good.

Titanic. My God, I thought it would never end.

That crappy singing circus one with Hugh Jackman ( can’t remember its name)
Mama Mia - dear god that was rubbish

IamPickleRick · 14/06/2019 00:21

The Notebook, yes! It was bloody awful.

Dream Girls. It’s just warbling, bad lyrics and flouncing.

The Favourite

My most overrated film of all time is Blues Brothers. Hated it. The only not shitty part of it is the sound track but none of those songs were written for the film anyway? Any idiot could compile a list of a few popular songs that everyone likes and shove them into a crappy film with crappy acting and no real plot.

Also, Love Actually, Mama Mia, Fifty Shades, Bridesmaids, almost anything made by Netflix...

Dream Girls. It’s just warbling, bad lyrics and flouncing.

All the reasons I love dream girls Blush

WhentheRabbitsWentWild · 14/06/2019 10:39

Being There
The Last House on the Left

There are others but those 4 off the top of my head

Smeghead90 · 14/06/2019 10:44

Lego movie colours gave me a head ache!
Anything with Adam sandler I’m really

Disfordarkchocolate · 14/06/2019 10:46

ET, makes me fall asleep every time.

All the Bourne films, also make me fall asleep even when I'm enjoying them.

Readytogogogo · 14/06/2019 10:48

Pretty Woman
Dirty Dancing
Mamma Mia
Les Mis - genuinely found it painful to sit through

curlyrebel · 14/06/2019 10:49

Titanic - found it so cheesy and the love story so unbelievable. Saw it in the cinema with my friend and didn't get why she was crying at the end!

I did get emotional with Brokeback Mountain though and quite liked La La Land (aside from the opening scene).

confussedmisfit · 14/06/2019 10:51

Lost in translation..........oh my god, yawn yawn, yawn.

Jsmith99 · 14/06/2019 10:55

The Shawshank Redemption. It’s not an awful film by any standards, but I am completely baffled as to why so many people list it as their favourite.

BlackCatsRock · 14/06/2019 10:56

Black Panther

drogon1 · 14/06/2019 10:57

Love Actually
Fight Club

YogaDrone · 14/06/2019 11:01

The Shawshank Redemption - I have no idea why people rave about this film. It has a plot twist you can see coming from several miles off.

Forest Gump - tedious, saccharine shite

Titanic - that's 3.5 hours of my life I regret wasting Sad

JQBased · 14/06/2019 11:01

Black Panther - The hype was unreal and it turns out it's just another Marvel superhero film only this time with fictional African characters. Very average.

Most Oscar winning films I find to be overrated, but many have said the Oscars are more political than based on merit.

Controversially The Railway Children just hated it as a child and have no fond memories of it as an adult, Daddy my daddy just leaves me cold!
