I went to see Eyes Wide Shut with a pretty big group of people, all Kubrick fans to some degree, and one by one everyone in the group wandered outside for a break. A couple people went to get coffee and came back. Some took a lengthy smoke break and came back. Nobody missed anything. I don't know if that counts because I most certainly did not watch the whole thing in its entirety.
I hated "Being There". I also hated "The English Patient", like Elaine in "Seinfeld", I just wanted him to DIE already! There are a lot of other movies that I didn't love, although popular opinion said that I should. "Shakespeare in Love" and "Slumdog Millionaire" come immediately to mind (didn't necessarily hate them with a passion, but just didn't like them much and didn't get what all the hype was about).
Titanic - one of the most contrived ridiculous movies I have ever seen. We are meant to believe that a society girl would have anything to do with let alone actually Do a lower decks schemer? Please! And then when they were floating - for the love of God - there was plenty of room to pull that simp up on the plank. UGH! Wish they had both drowned. And really, what woman would throw a gem like that overboard. Made me want to scream.
Fatal Attraction - rented it to see what all the fuss was about. DH and I were not impressed.
Kill Bill (only saw the first one and that was enough)
But the all time WORST movie I have ever seen was The Sheltering Sky, with John Malkovich and Debra Winger. I saw it with a friend who felt the same, and to this day, 20 years later, it is still our benchmark for bad movies. One of us will start talking about how lame the movie we saw on the weekend was, and clarify that with "But it wasn't as bad as The Sheltering Sky".
the notebook ! I hate this movie and the book
the English patient
any thing that is hyped up I am usually disappointed.
white oleander ( the book was great)
any adam sandler film except 50 first dates
Agree with Rubyfree...Eyes Wide Shut. Oh good Lordy was that the worst film ever made or what???? I was really pissed off having to sit through it too. The movie was horrid...and the musical score made me stabby. A single piano key struck at random times, where's the fruitbat??? Blech!
Titanic wasn't bad, but it was long.
Now Kill Bill, Volumes 1 & 2? Brilliant! But then I adore Quentin Tarrantino. (did I spell that right?) His films make me sit there and watch like this: !
And then any movie with Jean Claude Van Dammit, Tom Cruise or Steven Segal. Bad bad bad movies, all of them. I finally stopped having to watch or hear them in my house because I put a ban on those guys being seen on our main living room TV. Not allowed.
You jump in the saddle,
Hold onto the bridle!
Jump in the line!
