re: Critically acclaimed films you despise


Moulin Rouge-haven't seen. Have never enjoyed musicals so I don't watch them.
Monster's Ball-agreed, not an entertaining watch and no redeeming value
Snow White and the Seven Dwarves-Only one I've seen was the Disney animated one. Don't remember much about it.
The Blair Witch Project-Was terrible & it started a really bad era of indies
Cold Mountain-a different cast might have helped it
There's Something About Mary-was much funnier the 1st time (Not a good re-watch)
Mystic River-sucks from start-to-finish. Never have been able to sit through it
Avatar-don't despise, but it isn't that great

For me:
Raging Bull (1980)-I appreciate the performances of Di Nero and Pesci but I don't really enjoy the movie.
Jurassic Park (any of them)-Never got the fascination with dinosaurs.
Magnolia (1999)-didn't enjoy it the first time or the second
Million Dollar Baby-It's just too damn sad for me

I don't remember ever laughing much at Something About Mary but my friends loved it. Even the hair gel scene wasn't that funny. The thought of Cameron Diaz with spunk in her hair was the selling point I guess.

There really is no movie I despise more than Notebook.

Despise is a strong word but Avatar if it counts and Schindler's List.

Well, for some unholy reason I just watched Pitch Perfect and I want to fricking punch someone in the throat.

That movie has pretty good reviews.

Crash


See, I loved this movie for the reason every one hates it. I laughed my arse off at the stereotypes and what not. I don't think that was the reaction the filmmakers were going for, but I thought this movie was entertaining and funny.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, the slowest moving, most boring spy movie I've ever tried to watch. I couldn't make it past the first 45 minutes. It was just awful.

This movie is what happens when real espionage is put on screen. People say they want realism, but they really don't.

Casablanca. Incredibly overrated, but not a bad movie.

The Thin Red Line hasn't been mentioned yet so I'll take that one.

Oh, and Sideways.

And I'll jump on the Crash bandwagon.

A lot of others mentioned like Midnight In Paris and Something About Mary are movies I don't really despise but just think are greatly overrated.
