Go on. Tell the truth. Name the popular films you don't like. I'll go first.

Any of the Star Wars films
Any of the Matrix films
Sixth Sense
Any Hugh Grant film

I'll agree with the Matrix films.

Harry Potter films I can take or leave, mainly because of the girl who plays Hermione. I just want to smack her chops, the smug little...anyway.

Any horror films. They just don't scare me, because I know they're fiction. I just laugh.

'Comedies' starring Jim Carrey.

So it's not so much particular films, as the type. I hear you on the Star Wars films too. I mean...*yawn*

I realise as a man almost 30, I'm breaking the law by not liking Star Wars, but...well, I can't pretend I care.

I did like them when I was a kid, but no longer.

Oddly, I love people telling me about scenes from this type of movie. That always makes me laugh. But the films themselves? Meh.

Same here. They're okay, but nothing special. Others:

-Titanic

-Godfather movies, Scarface, Goodfellas, etc.... (I like Untouchables and Copland, though -- it's all about the good guys, I guess)

-Any and all romantic comedies

-Harry Potter

Everyone seemed to think the third Harry Potter movie was the best--I hated it. It was boring and awful.

Forrest Gump

never even saw Titanic and won't

Meet the Parents--I hate that sort of "oh ho ho, everything goes wrong!" kind of humor

I'm sure I'll add more later...

Like a lot of folks, it's not specific films, it's type of films. Or specific actors.

I cannot stand:

Anything with Will Ferrel/Lesllie Nielsen/Jim Carrey/Adam Sandler/Ben Stiller or films of that ilk.

Anything with Tom Cruise.

Almost anything with Leo DiCaprio (Titanic included)

Pretty much anything 'starring' singers or wrestlers.

As a general rule, things that trade off the success of a good film. Day of the Dead 2 leaps, unbidden, to mind.

Star Wars - I used to like them, but whether I've grown up or seeing one of the new ones have soured them; I can't watch them anymore.

Top Gun.

Blood Simple - I love the Coens, I just could never get through it.
Any of the 'Saw' films (all torture porn, really).
The Life Aquatic.

Seconds to the Meet the Parents films (humiliation porn), Love Story, Good Will Hunting, and There's Something About Mary (which is missing the heart that's in their later films).

You speak truth! I can't stand what I call Quisinart movies, where it's all about torturing people. I find them disgusting, and can't believe censors find torture and murder more acceptable than a naked female breast. Is it just me, or does the entire movie industry have things bass-ackwards?

ChunkyC, if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend 'This Film Is Not Yet Rated.' It's a great documentary on what the censors will allow through and what they won't, and some of the hideous double standards out there. Films get rated NC-17 for a glimpse of pubic hair, and yet mowing people down with a chainsaw is fine.

I've tried to find that in Blockbuster, but can never find it. I saw a special about it on IFC when it came out. Interesting stuff.

I'm one of those folks who usually likes what the critics like, with a few exceptions. One of them:

Babel.

Terrible, awful, terribly awful film. It made Crash look like a masterpiece, in my opinion.

Yes, add any and all Saw movies to my list of "blech". Along with just about anything Anthony Hopkins is doing lately where he's a psychotic killer. And this new thing coming out - what's it called . . . where a bunch of criminals are pitted against each other in a match to the death broadcast live. A remake of a hundred others just like it.

I'd rather poke my eye out with a fork.

Surprised at all the Ben Stiller/Will Ferrell hate on this thread. :)

I like their movies. A lot. For me, one of the joys of these movies is watching the alternate histories that the directors and writers create. For example, in Dodgeball an entire false history of the sport is invented. In Zoolander, fake rules and codes are created for modeling. That coding is used in almost all of the Ferrell/Stiller/Wilson/Vaughn comedies. I can't help but read it as a send-up of the sometimes ridiculous rules that are placed on certain situations, especially in America. (A great example is Wedding Crashers; another one is the oft-mentioned on this thread Meet the Parents. Those movies seem to me to be about How We Should Act vs. How We Want to Act.)

To me, that sort of invention is hilarious. Maybe I'm juvenile.

I liked Good Will Hunting too, but I agree - thus far everything else Affleck has been in was agonizingly bad. Jersey Girl made me want to chew my own hand off.

I also hate - I have to admit it - Braveheart. My sister thinks I'm from another planet because of that. And I was so annoyed by The Village I actually left the theater, which I generally don't do after I've paid $8.50 to get in.

Kate Beckinsale is always gorgeous. :)

O yeah, how could I forget Shyamalan's so-called masterpieces? The Sixth Sense was good, and then the rest just got worse and worse. Unbreakable was achingly slow and predictable. Don't even mention Signs, the Village, and, ahem-ahem, Lady in the Water.

Ben Affleck makes me slightly homicidal. I'll never forgive him for Armeggedon because I hold a grudge against Bruce Willis.

That said, Changing Lanes, with Samuel L. M-Effin Jackson was a great film. And Ben Affleck's acting was actually good. I'm serious. Check it out.

Gah! I'll never understand the hype around Shyamalan. Sixth Sense was not awful, but it was painfully obvious what the "big secret" was right from the start. Tolerable film, but a one-time view only.

Shyamalan drives me NUTS. I just don't see what the big deal about that guy is supposed to be. There were a few scenes in Unbreakable and The Sixth Sense I liked, but I just hate how he's got to be a presence in every movie he makes. It's so distracting.

I never saw Changing Lanes...maybe I'll give it a shot. Jackson can make up for about anything. ;)

Lot of great movies I enjoy have been mentioned here (Crash, A Beautiful Mind, most Shyamalan, anything with Ben Stiller, etc.), but oh well.

Ben Affleck's only problem is that he's a gifted character actor cursed with leading-man looks. He's good and occasional excellent when he's not in a normal leading-man role, which he should just quit trying to do. Can't give that much credit to Keanu Reeves. I don't know how he gets any roles at all. Giant mystery to me.

Hmm, what else...

Passion of the Christ
The recent Mummy and sequel
The recent Hulk
Pocahontas
Batman and Robin
Superman IV
Matrix sequels (the first one annoyed me less)

I'm a fan of oldies and am normally patient with shifts in taste and style as the decades pass, but I find these unwatchably boring or demented:

Meet Me in St. Louis
Ten Commandments
Greatest Show on Earth
Dracula (first Lugosi version)

Agreed, Armageddon bit the big one. And I agree about Changing Lanes.

I'm a big M. Knight Shamaylan fan. Love his movies for the most part, though I can agree with the way he put himself into The Village not working. That was just too cutesy. I'd much rather he did like he did in Unbreakable (standard bit part), or in Signs and Lady in the Water, an actual role. I don't think he can be pooh-poohed for putting himself in his movies, other directors do it all the time and don't get jumped on for it. Clint Eastwood and Alfred Hitchcock, to name two.

Like others who recognize changing tastes in film over the years, I thought Casablanca, Psycho, and The Birds were crashing bores. Now, with Psycho and The Birds, it's probably all the good parts have been shown on TV in horror and/or Hitchcock retrospectives so many times, there was nothing left to shock or scare me. But Casablanca really didn't hook me.

So far, every Will Farrell movie I've seen puts me to sleep, which is sad as I loved him on SNL. Except for that scene in Old School where "Total Eclipse of the Heart" is sung at the wedding.

Mel Brooks turns my guts, aside from Young Franky. Why is it so obvious when a punch line is being set up and the actor delivers the line and pauses, somtimes staring down the barrel of the camera, as if to draw the viewer into the joke? And yeah, Mel, I'm hep to your Jewishness, okay?

Woody Allen--he should be hosed. Chris Rock, give it up, okay.

Dogma. Never seen so much info dump dialogue in all my life. The actors literally ran out of breath telling this story instead of showing it to us. What kind of a religious preachment was this?

Brendan Fraiser in that Canadian Mounted Police thingy. Dudley Dooright?

Smokey and the Bandit. Has Burt Reynolds ever done anything worth praise, or justify his own pompous self-worth. Oh, yeah--that John Holmes film, eh?

I'll take Little Nicky and Waterboy. But the minute they make Adam Sandler into a romantic lead is when I have to call it quits. Click was forgetable.

Leslie Neilsen had a great career until he demanded comedy scripts. Mr. Woopy cushion should have stayed in drama rolls.

Wrestlers, singers and pop stars? Lets add Karate and Kung Fu experts here. No one is gong to get me to tolerate Brue Li or Chuck Norris--especially Chucky. And Steven Segal is pretty close to the edge of my cliff, too.

Okay, The Polar Express. This is a wierd azz, dark Christmas tale. Ah, gee, the kids break every rule in the book but come away having learned something and being rewarded for it. Somebody want to explain what the bum on the roof of the train was supposed to portray that tied in with the plot. The film editor was snoozing.

Someone mentioned John Wayne and I couldn't possibly agree more. John Wayne sucks in a truly horrible and awful way. I can't watch any movie with John Wayne in it he sucks so bad.

Citizen Kane. Tried three times and I'm not trying anymore. It's a knee-jerk classic anyway...so many people claiming to love it just make that claim because they feel they are supposed to. Kane has been christened...which makes it even more irritating to me. I will grant that it has influenced films that I actually like to watch, though.

Ace Ventura has been mentioned and I agree. I even watched it shitfaced and was bored to tears. It harshed my buzz!

I hated American Beauty when it came out. This was mainly because everyone and their sister went berzerk over how brilliant it was. This was also the height of my anti-Spacey period. Eventually I came around to like American Beauty...it really is a good movie.

Was Miami Vice popular at all? It's a terrible movie and Mann should be ashamed of it. He is such a great director and Vice is his baby but they should have shelved that suckfest.

Anyway...

I hate those new school "grindhouse" movies that seem to be so popular these days, like The Hills Have Eyes and Hostel. I don't mind violence, but those flicks are just pointless. Also, any of those new car movies that seem to be made based on a formula, i.e. The Fast and the Furious or Redline.

Um -- rap isn't singing. Just sayin' ;)

I agree about Will Smith. The man has talent galore.

Your right...rap is just someone talking with someone creating an electronic drumbeat in the background.

Every time I hear rap, I die a little inside.

You can probably find him waiting tables at a TGIFridays near you. He's got great flair.

Is there any movie you do like, Ferret?


Hmm.I didn't realize my list was that inclusive. I thought I left out a good 50,000 or more movies.

There's Something About Mary - and that one is weird because I tend to like most of that gang's stuff

For some strange reason, I got that for my birthday. Go figure. Hated it.
I don't like anything that reminds me of Lucy Ricardo getting into situations that get worse and worse, like... uh... can't think of any. Must have erased them from my memory.

Meet The Parents was in the background while I was housecleaning. Everybody was laughing their asses off, but it didn't appeal to me at all. If I see another guard dog chasing a guest, I'll throw up.

Here's two others I can't stand: Napoleon Dynamite. Sorry, I was that kid in school, and there are times where I wonder if I've ever left him behind (did I believe it when he got cheered and lauded as a hero? SARCASM WARNING Oh, my yes. Happened to me every other doggammed day). Not a comfortable movie for me to watch, on that level. On the other levels - story, acting - it sucked green galactic moose. I just wanted to slap everybody and scream at them to stop mumbling (thank ghod for closed captioning) and to make up their minds which year they were in, 1996 or 1986.

Then there's Clerks. I'd rather slam my fingers in a door until I pass out than endure that one again. The acting was horrible and I just felt like Kevin Smith set up the camera and told everybody, "Okay. Just start talking about sh!t. I'm going out for a smoke." If I wanted to listen to excrutiatingly mind-numbing conversations about absolutely nothing, I'd pay more attention to the people around me at work.

Not a comfortable movie for me to watch, on that level. I had the same reaction to The Royal Tenenbaums. I was so pissed that someone had managed to trick me into spending two hours with my family, I threw the DVD off the balcony as soon as it was over.

Wonder if Blockbuster's noticed they never got that one back yet.

I didn't like The Royal Tenenbaums. It just didn't seem good to me in any way.

I despise any of the "fast car" movies.

Didn't like Dodgeball or Old School.

Scarface didn't impress me much, either.

Hated the 300. Some of you ladies might like it though. "I kept thinking, so this is what happens when 300 male underwear models go to war."
