    The Titanic - OK CHICK FLICK even so it wasn't good at all.

    Matrix any of them. - It was Johny Mnemonic only with a even dumber plot. I kept waiting for the talking dolphin to show up. My friends said I just didn't get it but I have a higher IQ then the ones that actually liked that POS.

    American Pie - Seriously I didn't laugh once at this movie. Cringe yes but that is not laughing.

    Avitar - That was a complete POS. I was told that I only hated it because I can't see 3D movies. Not sure why but the new 3D just doesn't work for me. A POS in 3D is still just a POS.

    Any comedy with Jim Carey. I just don't think he is funny. Out side of Lier Lier I just think he is not funny. He was also just freaky scary in the Grinch to me. I did love his Fire Marshal Bill sets on SNL back in the day.

    Oh yeah Ill add The Lord of The Rings. Lord of the G String was much better. Honestly one of my angry drunk alcoholic friends made me watch this and to this day I tell him he owes me 10 hrs of my friggen life back. Worst movie trilogy ever. Must have blocked it from my mind.

    GFY to whoever hated Inception. Best. Movie. Ever.
    Defend.
    It was different, and a little cerebral, but it basically boiled down to a heist movie. A far cry from mind-blowing or anything of that ilk. Marks the first time I didn't want to reach through my screen and choke Ellen Page.

    Definitely +1 on the Matrix.

    I don't get the hate for the original Star Wars series. I don't know that any SciFi type movie has ever been regaled as cinematic masterpieces. They are just fun SciFi movies with interesting stories/legend to it. Aside from the further development of the story lines, I didn't enjoy the newer films. The obvious differences in production quality was a huge distraction as was the times where it got entirely too stupid with dialogue, Jar-Jar Binks sequences, etc. Otherwise, I don't get the outrage.

    Someone mentioned earlier, Goodfellas. Can't begin to understand what makes that so great.

    Otherwise I tend to generally stay away from those types of movies as I can usually imagine they will be of teh suck.

    Another candidate could be Jarhead, but I'm not sure anyone actually did like that. Similarly, I didn't really enjoy The Hurt Locker as much as everyone else did. I feel like if there was a point to that movie, I missed it entirely. It wasn't that I disliked it as much as I was surprised it was nominated for the Oscar let alone won.

    You obviously don't like movies.

    I'd love to see the list of movies you actually like.

    The Hurt Locker had a few very concise points... To sum up the main one that I saw, he's a war junkie to the fullest extent you can be...and doesn't want nor know a life outside of it.

    I love tons of movies.

    Avatar? What the hell was so special about this movie? I'm a huge fan of James Cameron's early work (Aliens and the first two Terminator films are among my all time favorites), but this was terrible. One of the most cliche storylines that has been done to death (Dances with Wolves, The Last Samurai, Pochahontas, Fern Gully, etc), I couldn't have cared less about a single character in the movie, some of the corniest dialogue you can imagine, and a political message that is constantly shoved down your throat at every turn. Gee, it sure did have some pretty colors though.

    And Gran Torino? That movie was hot garbage outside of Clint Eastwood's performance.

    Requiem for a Dream? It's like this movie is considered a masterpiece just because it makes you wanna stay away from hard drugs.

    I'm a huge Eastwood fan myself. Unforgiven and The Good the bad and the ugly are both in my top 50. Also you want a good laugh watch both A Fistful of Dollars and Last Man Standing back to back. They are identical just in different time frames.

    The Hurt Locker is the best edited movie I've ever seen. The only time I've ever thought to myself during a film "Damn, whoever cut this together did an amazing job."

    I've never read The Lord of the Rings trilogy, but the movies are masterpieces in my opinion. Some people just have an inherent aversion to fantasy.

    I have read the the Harry Potter books. The movies vary greatly in quality. The last two and the third are actually good films. The rest? I give credit to the people involved for doing as good a job as they did. It's something that easily could have been completely botched and wasn't.

    No one thinks that the Transformers movies are any good. Michael Bay gets hired because he makes movies with big explosions and brings them in under budget, not because he's a quality director (though I suppose being an efficient manager is a talent of some sort).

    I think Lost in Translation is great, but I knew what I was getting into beforehand. A lot of people saw that Bill Murray was in it and made assumptions.

    The Spiderman movies are all overrated. They're not bad, I'd even say that the first two are good. But I roll my eyes when people say that Spiderman 2 is the best superhero movie ever made.

    Avatar is another movie that I've never heard anyone say was great. It's a good, though cliche-ridden movie. I'll always view it as a proof of concept more than anything else. The technology was impressive, and I don't understand the people that argue otherwise. Now someone else needs to take that technology and do something with it.

    Titanic just isn't for me. It's a very pretty movie, and that's what gets me through when someone else wants to watch it. "Luck" a show that was on HBO earlier this year, was a TV show that I watched just to stare at it.

    I hate Twilight. Unfortunately, though I was able to avoid the books, there was no escaping exposure to the movies. I have seen all of them. I continue to maintain that there is more good than bad in the first one. The 2nd is on my shorlist for "Worst Movie Ever." The rest are terrible, but no 0-16 Lions bad.

    The original Star Wars trilogy, while vastly superior to the prequels, are very important movies that are revered as "great" purely out of nostalgia. They're good, they were unlike anything people had seen before...they're not great movies.

    Napoleon Dynamite sucks. It is a terrible movie that all of my friends tried to convince me was great. Whatever

    Matrix- fugging horrible.

    Every Star Wars movie ever made- unwatchable garbage.

    LOTR - great

    Lost in translation was quirky and good.
