Top 5 Movies You Don't Like As Much As Everybody Else Seems To

Recommended Posts

I posted “The Princess Bride” in the overrated movie thread a few months ago, and I think I got more vitriol for that post than for anything that I’ve ever posted here.

Fight Club - I want to vomit every time someone quotes “The first rule of X is that you don’t talk about X.”

Nightmare on Elm St. - Freddy has nothing on Jason.

Caddyshack is hilarious.  One of my all time favorite comedies.

Probably isn’t worth it for you to watch michael jordan play basketball, Griffey swing a bat, Walter Payton run, etc. either.

Every Will Ferrell and Adam Sandler movie.

Sandler really doesn't stand up over time.

But Elf is the best movie ever made.

I didn't watch this to see if his best lines are in it, but Ted Knight's character makes Caddyshack.

Add in some of Chevy Chase's best stuff, Rodney Dangerfield and the Dali Lama and Cinderalla Story scenes from Murray, the movie is a top notch comedy.

Two that came out at the same time that I just didn't "get" were No Country For Old Men and There Will Be Blood.  Didn't like either movie.

Wow. Both those movies were some of the best movies to come out in years. Amazing writing, directing, and acting. Thanks for the reminder, it's time that I saw both again. Javier Bardem's character was one of the best portrayals of a psychopath EVER in a movie.

Big Lebowski - saw it in the theater, almost walked out. The other couple with us did, in fact, leave before the movie ended. 

No Country for Old Men

Anything with Martin Short

40 year old virgin

Wedding Crashers after the reception montage (just a crappy love story from that point on)

The Toby McGwire spiderman movies. I liked them when they first came out, but then I realized the guy has the exact same facial expression in every damn scene. It's mind blowing how little range that dude has. 

 

That being said, LOVE the Godfather movies as well as Shawshank, so there's that.

Unforgiven

I like unforgiven, but I definitely get the overrated sentiment...felt like more of a coronation for Eastwood with all the critical acclaim.

Agree with Lebowski.   Blues Brothers deserves mention.  Also Ace Ventura - Don't find Jim Carey funny at all.  Jeff Daniels carries Dumb and Dumber imo.

Avatar was that way for me the first time I saw it and then I watched it with my kids in the last year and I enjoyed it much more than when I saw it in a theater. I'm actually looking forward to the sequels. An Avatar land at Disney seems a bit much, but the sequels should be cool.

I can see why people don't like that movie as much, but it is one of my all time favorites.  It comes down to two scenes in that movie, and they are both near the end, so it is a long wait for the payoff.

 

When Eastwood and that kid they hired start talking about him killing a man, and then the hooker rides up and tells them about Freeman being killed and then Eastwood starts drinking.

Followed by when Eastwood rides in drunk and kills everyone.
