Royal Tennenbaums
and the other one made by that guy - about the lad who wants to build a pond on his school or something.. some silly single word title.

WTF were they about?

Donni Darko and Lost in Translation.

Can anyone please tell me what she whispered to Bill mUrray at the end. My firend and I went to see it - twice as we really just didn't get it - was it just us or was anyine else baffled by the staory line (if there was one).

The Manchurian Candidate. What rubbish!

suzywong · 06/12/2004 14:33

Troy, if it weren't for the eye candy.

It really is a bag of sh*te

MrsDoobaubles · 06/12/2004 14:39

The Player
Didn't enjoy Lost in Translation either.
Oh and Pulp fiction!!! Utter Tripe. Can't stand Tarantino - what a wierdo

MrsDoobaubles · 06/12/2004 14:45

Phone Booth was REALLY disappointing

Dior · 06/12/2004 14:46

Cold Creek Manor
America's Sweethearts
The Pledge (Saturday night, Jack Nicholson)
Leaving Las Vegas

Almost every single thing that comes out of hollywood. Same old formula again and again ad nauseum.

I never go to the cinema. When the film comes on telly, I watch it and say "Yep - good job I didn't waste my money at the flicks for THAT!".

I prided myself that we had never seen Titanic - avoided it for the several years it seemed to run at the cinema. Avoided conversations that began "Have you seen Titanic?", Avoided it on DVD. Then accidentally came across the last half on the telly last year, and thought "Yep - we were right. Pants."

However, there are films mentioned here that I did enjoy. Am a fan of the LOTR books, and have read them again and again, and it is the best book to film version I have ever seen. But you have to be a LOTR nerd really.

Also seem to confuse everyone I know by utterly hating Pulp Fiction and Resevior Dogs and won't ever see Kill Bill.

As for Austin Powers. Ug.

TwasTheNightBeforeCatbert · 06/12/2004 15:07

And not forgetting American Pie. Watched at someone's house ("it's reeeeally funny, honestly.")

Er. No.

Undercover Brother

I mean I wasn't expecting it to be a masterpiece but thought it might be entertainingly silly. Absolute load of shit.

Raindog · 08/12/2004 15:04

Event Horizon. Why did Sam Neil look like his head had been through a waffle iron?

That stupid one with sharks that turn bad that meant Saffron Burrows had to strip down to her underwear in order to stand on her wetsuit so she wouldn't be electrocuted!

spacedonkey · 08/12/2004 15:05

lawks yes, Deep Blue Sea - what tripe!

bakedpotatohoho · 08/12/2004 15:07

can't believe donnie darko, master and commander, lost in translation and school of rock are on this list

Shock

spacedonkey · 08/12/2004 16:03

freddie was brilliant in his Friends guest appearance as the male nanny though

nailpolish · 08/12/2004 16:08

how could anyone hate pulp fiction? Shock zeds dead baby zeds dead

thin red line is the worst ever imo

LGJ · 26/03/2005 08:23

Another vote for Big Fish, DH went to bed halfway through and I watched it all, then went to bed wondering why I had wasted my evening.

Newbarnsleygirlsinsaneknickers · 26/03/2005 09:09

Moulin Rouge
The last Samouri

Somanykiddies · 30/03/2005 18:32

Totally agreed with Moulin Rouge. Only film I've ever walked out of.

BubblesDeVere · 30/03/2005 18:50

Frenchgirl, just shows you how different tastes can be, I LOVED 'The Hours' and went and bought the film the day after I saw it, seen it a few times now.

katierocket · 30/03/2005 18:53

Layer Cake
started off well but the ending is utter sh*te

spacedonkey · 30/03/2005 18:54

I recently sat through the interminably dull Milagro Beanfield War. Definitely not recommended

sahara · 30/03/2005 18:54

I hated Queen of the damned so much I actually started crying in anger.
I love the book, have done since as long as I can remember.
Having watched Interview with a Vampire I was really impressed with the way the film stayed on course with the book.
But Queen of the Damned is awful, just awful.
Anyone who watched the film, you should know that the book is 100 times better.

Dahlia · 30/03/2005 19:27

God, I can't believe so many of my favourite films have been mentioned here! Magnolia, Shawshank, Vanilla Sky, Mulholland Drive, Pulp Fiction, loads more. I love em all! Worst film I ever saw was called Sewage Baby and if anyone else has seen it, I'll eat my hat.
