I don't like most superhero movies, but here is my short list of exceptions

1) Original Superman with Gene Hackman

2) Iron Man (only the first one)

3) Christopher Nolan's Batmans as well as the Jack Nicholson Batman

 

After that they all just kind of suck for me.

I guess The Godfather trilogy never interested me. Mafia  -- and action (in an aside) for that matter -- movies leave me flat, no matter how reinterpreted.  

Per Walking Boot, Caddyshack was not funny, other than "Ahoy Polloi."That was a great line and nudges the movie to worth the hour and a half. But Bill Murray in that movie? Not funny. 

Other than that, I can't think of too many movies that consensus movie-goers picked that let me down. The only critic I paid attention to was Ebert; the rest have some sort of sociopolitical agenda regardless. 

I can think of movies I love more than others, but not hate. I generally appreciate works of art and the craft itself.

I love all five of these, the last two for the first installments. :shock:

I barely knew ye. 

Pulp was such a mind#### with its narrative structure. When it came out in '94 or '95, us college students were just blown away by it in the theater. When Dick Dale came on???????

Oh my God. You had a buyer immediately.

itsaprotip - the Clash were overrated, as well - the Jam blow them out the water :yes:

ok, we won't hijack here ...

as far as BttF, i ####### despise Fox - only good thing he ever did was "Curb" - took him close to 50 years, but he finally did something worthy, albeit a 30 minute episode only.

"Pulp" was so laughable, imo ... a comic book nerd/geek foisting SHOCK!!!11!!11!1 to his likewise minions .. it was straight up dog####.

Wow. My rankings. 

Clash (cantankerous, rock, ska, reggae) >>>> Jam (boring, plodding, rock)

Pulp was not necessarily comic book or geekery, it appealed to those of us that liked a fractured narrative structure. 

As far as BTTF, Calvin and Lea Thompson were awesome in the dynamic of the first one. Especially the Oedipal stuff. Too funny. Great, great movie.

London Calling is my all time favorite album but I consider The Jam the superior band . The Clash never put out 3 masterpieces in a row like The Jam.
