This is a list of films everyone seems to like (or most everyone) but me. I can feel the heat coming my way already but that much is to be expected. My tastes are unpredictable & I think it's safe to say that everyone knows that already.
I HATED this one from the very first time I ever watched it. Another PG-13 horror flick which is a remake of a far superior (if you can imagine that) Asian horror film. Everyone loves it & nothing I will have to say can change that but I will NEVER like it.
A friend of mine took me to see this at the local multiplex. Trust me when I say that sharing is not necessarily caring. He described the film as being somewhat like a Shakespeare play. I wanted to ask him what drugs he was on & why he wasn't offering to share those as well. This movie sucked big time!
I actually liked the first two entires of The Matrix even though I'm not the hardcore fan that most are & probably would never be. The third entry seems nothing more than a rehash of the first two & I could best describe it as warmed-up leftovers which is not necessarily complimentary.
Even his best works put me to sleep. M. Night does absolutely nothing for me. I don't find his particularly frightening, original, or touching at all. This one seems to be an all-time favorite simply because people didn't see the ending before it arrived with a big red bow. No cigar here either.
I dunno. I've tried to watch this several times through the years but I don't understand the cult appeal honestly. Sure, there is a great cast here including Paxton & Henriksen but that doesn't save the film in my book. The bar scene is highly overrated & the blood transfusion montage is one the biggest cop-outs I've come across in cinema. Probability suggests this one will keep it's cult following even though much better films will continue to go unnoticed through the years.
This one has somewhat of a cult following & people have literally been dying to get their hands on a legitimate DVD release for years now. Not feeling this one either. I LOVE zombies but I hated this flick! I've tried watching it on videotape, HBO, & even a bootleg that my best buddy had but it never does anything for me. Probably never will.
I didn't think the Wayne's World phase would ever pass. Kind of like Bill & Ted or Beavis & Butthead, this was a cornball example of how to NOT make a good film. Should I praise the film for giving new life to Queen's great song? I think not. Queen was around long before this piece of crap & will exists in the hearts of great music fans whereas WW hopefully will one day just completely fade into oblivion.
Snoozefest from the Coen brothers. Trust me when I say I like The Cohen brothers but it shocks the hell outta me why this was touted as Best Picture. I bought a used DVD copy of this & immediately sold it after trying several times to see what everyone saw in it (albeit unsuccessfully) & still don't understand what the hype was all about.
Another overrated, formulaic film which caters to the multiplex that I couldn't stand. Watched it once in theatres & was literally appalled by all the great feedback it was getting. Tried watching it again not too long ago but nothing has changed. Downey has done much better work & this film still sucks in my book. Nope, sorry. Can't get with this one either.

I don't have anything against Disney per se nor the "too cool for school" Pixar but I'm missing something here. I bought a copy of this for my best friend's daughter & she asked me to stay so I could watch it with her. I'm by no means an idiot but I'm totally lost here. This is not a kid's movie by any stretch of the imagination & I seriously doubt many adults are gonna get this either. And where did they get the idea for Wall-E. Did one of the writers watch Short Circuit too many times when they were kids? Johnny Five is still alive?
I've already wrote a pretty scathing review for this. The handheld camera films never do much for me but this one was one of the absolute worst ever made in my book. I hope to God I never have to sit through anything so dumb in my life again as this. Cloverfield is living proof that that manistream moviegoers are apt to watch just about anything really.

Actually, I find this film somewhat offensive. Not only is it incredibly slow moving but it's also is full of stereotypes which should instigate wrath from the gay community. Other than a few touching moments, this one was nothing to write home about. For a better film about the gay lifestyle, I recommend Otto; Or Up With Dead People.
Another boring remake of an Asian horror flick. You could fall asleep for thirty minutes & not miss a single thing. This series is extremely popular for some unknown reason but I still can't sit through this film without heavy eyelids. Asian Horror films can be some of the greatest horror films in the world but you wouldn't know it by seeing their remakes.
Overrated, over-hyped piece of junk. I didn't much care for Eli Roth after seeing Cabin Fever or this. Although this was a vast improvement over CF, Roth shows that he still has a long way to go with this one even as people were eating this one up like candy. It reminds me of Porky's meets a really bad torture porn film. One of the few instances where I actually liked the sequel much, much more.
Don't ask. Just don't see it. What a travesty! I once had a little respect for Stephen king but this was a piece of garbage. The film started off great but turned into a really crappy B-flick with sickening pink dots. Ewwww. The jerks who made this drivel should be ashamed of theirselves.
