Oblivion-Anyone who likes it must be a scientologist
The Hobbit-Looked like it was filmed with a preowned camcorder
The Place Beyond the Pines-A film about fathers and sons that would have been better is the fathers had screwed the sons instead of screwing them over
Oz the Great and Powerful-Words can't describe
The Host-Two good looking guys fighting over the most boring girl in the universe. So basically Twilight without the werewolves and vampires.

I'm the poster from above who HATED Rachel Getting Married. Here are a few more...
Lars von Triers' "The Idiots." I have a high tolerance for movies but I had to turn it off as it got close to the end. It was really awful.
Recently tried to watch "Carlos" the miniseries and I was bored. They just jumped from incident to incident without building his character -- though maybe that happened in parts II and III, which I couldn't be bothered to watch. BORING.
Georgia (Jennifer Jason Leigh) was a mess.
Another movie I loathed was Vanilla Sky. Tripe.

I love the stage musical and have several cast recordings on my iPod, but the movie was shit! Terrible singing, terrible direction, terrible photography -- just all-around terrible!

r42, re Beasts of the Southern Piece of Shit: it was the combo of horrible acting, shaky-handheld camera and pretentious story -- the epitome of a bad indie movie. That it was so acclaimed completely astonishes me -- I thought its badness was rather apparent.
|by Rogene Sisbert||reply 46||04/26/2013|
I liked Brokeback Mountain so little, I could not sit through it a second time, even though Jake was in it (I'm not a Jake troll, but I'm more inclined to see movies he's in just because he's in them than any other actor, except maybe Hugh Dancy).
I'm on the fence about Les Mis. I just saw it. I don't go to theatres anymore. I didn't like the speak-singing, either, but I didn't hate Anne the way you all prepared me to do. There wasn't very much to like about it except for Hugh Jackman and Eddie Redmayne. It was just so diminished compared to the play.
And all that CGI: uch. I used to prefer movies to plays because they seemed more realistic. Now movies have even more fake sets and drawn-in scenery. I don't know how many of them I'm going to see from here on out.
I can imagine the things R3 hated about Django. I only watched it because I must see everything Kerry is in. I was surprised how much I liked it, gruesome as it was.
Saw Argo. I neither loved it nor hated it, but I don't get the "best picture" love. Scoot McNairy is the only thing that kept me from turning it off halfway through.
I'm about to watch Lincoln.

Snow White and the Hunt that Twilight Bitch Down and Kill Her. Now. Please. Not even worth watching it on cable.
Anna Karenina - a great novel ruined by Keira fucking Knightley and the director's vanity.

"Oblivion" wasn't bad. It wasn't good, but it wasn't worth hate. It was actually quite beautiful to look at, and it's only real problem was that it was utterly predictable (being an unoriginal mishmash of a half-dozen other sci-fi movies and tropes). I was 2 or 3 steps ahead of it the entire way, but it never really got *boring*. It was just kind of "meh". Worth a cable viewing if you're really into the genre, but I wouldn't pay for it (I saw a matinee, and that was still a bit too much). You see the 'twist' coming a mile away.
"Prometheus" is pretty, but so insultingly bad it's totally worth hating. I wish I could un-see it.
The last movie I hated that much was Matrix:Revolutions... a movie so bad it made me hate Matrix:Reloaded retroactively.

[R39] Melancholia may not be in my top 10 of all time, but it was the most compelling film I've seen in 2 years.
The worst movie I have seen recently is "Savages" an Oliver Stone directed, terribly miscast movie with Blake Lively, Taylor Kitsch and another hot guy I have never heard of. They are new school drug dealers/growers(a brilliant botanist and an ex-Navy SEAL) who both are lovers of Lively, a bored dilettante, who live as a threesome in a hole in the wall beach bungalow in Palos Verdes. Is there such a thing??? I could not make it past 40 minutes, so I have no idea how the plot was resolved, but I doubt I missed much. There is ONE hilarious bit of trivial fact surrounding the film. Uma Thurman was cast as Lively's mother, shot the entire film, and then was completely erased in the cut! Oh my! That must have pleased Uma to no end.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who walked out of "Amour." The acting in the movie was phenomenal, but the movie was so bleak, tedious and hopeless that I almost had to go home and take an antidepressant.
I was sitting with my best buddy in the theater and my mind was just numb. I knew he had wanted to see the movie badly, so I was just going to politely suffer through it (you know, the kind of things we do for our friends).
About half-way through (I would assume), Mike leaned over, laughed, and said, "My God, this thing is horrible. Do you like it?" I laughed, shook my head "no" and we bolted. We ended up going next door to watch "A Good Day to Die Hard", which was easily the worst "Die Hard" movie, but after "Amour", "A Good Day to Die Hard" seemed like "The Maltese Falcon" by comparison.
It pains me to have hated it because the lead actors in "Amour" were fantastic and I felt almost guilty hating the movie.

I can't remember the last five. I can only remember the last one: "Moonrise Kingdom." I was not familiar with Wes Anderson movies; if I had been I never would have gone to see the thing. I'd only seen photos of Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Bruce Willis and Ed Norton, all looking amusingly plain and pathetic (Norton looked particularly funny in a Scout uniform). I heard it got good reviews. But it was one of the worst movies I've ever seen: a "fairy tale" where two mentally disturbed 12 year olds run away together and later get "married."
The movie was unfunny and tedious, filled with lifeless characters speaking in monotone voices. EVERYBODY seemed depressed and listless. The child protagonists are unappealing and dislikeable; the rest of the cast are totally wasted in their roles. There's also a gross scene where the two 12 year olds indulge in sex play and the boy gets a chubby! I don't think I've ever wanted to walk out of a movie before but it happened with this one. I didn't walk out, I stayed til the end and when I got home I felt physically ill. Yes, it was THAT bad.

"Sex negative filth?" How could it be "sex negative" and "filth" at the same time? You're not making any sense.
I saw that movie and it was typical John Hughes fare, and John Hughes movies are far from "sex-negative." I guess you found it "sex negative" that Buck tried to prevent his teenage niece from being taken advantage of by a slimy kid named Bug ("what's his last name? SPRAY?"). If that's what you consider sex-negative, then you have some serious mental problems indeed.

"The Hangover" is the one film I can single out as one of the most HATEFUL films I have ever had to endure. Even for a "comedy", it's spectacularly unfunny.

I have to imagine people who hated Magic Mike so much didn't get it. It's a freakin' comedy. I laughed most of the way through it. But then I saw it in a theater with an energized crowd.
Anyway, I've seen a lot of people that seemed to think it was supposed to be a serious drama. No wonder they hate it.
I've also seen a LOT worse movies than Magic Mike, which is a fun, campy little trifle and nothing more. Not even worth "haaaating".

R99 is full of shit. There's a reason the book and the movie are widely recognized as excellent.

Both PSH and JP managed a heady combination of obnoxious, physically repulsive and boring.
I hated every second of it (well, until the three quarters of the way through, when I finally gave up). In fact, I cannot think of another film I've hated as much, ever.
[quote]Okay, it's not that recent but whatever that piece of shit was with Angelina Jolie, directed by Clint Eastwood. So bad that I'm glad I can't remember the name and I refuse to look it up.
R59, the movie is "Changeling", and I hated that too. In fact, I also didn't get to the end of it, and I do sit through to the end of 99% of the movies I start watching. I still didn’t hate it as much as I hated "The Master", though.

Hated the first Sherlock Holmes and Iron Man 2. They're a few years old but unfortunately relevant due to sequels... Aaand I honestly just realized that both are RDJ franchises after writing the first two sentences. I don't hate the guy, he just makes really shitty films these days.
The Hobbit was awful. Bad action, bad comedy, but the worst were the touching scenes, such utter tripe.
I didn't enjoy The Cabin in the Wood much, wish I just watched that one at home.
I notice this isn't easy to answer, I do like most films I choose to see. Really enjoyed Prometheus btw.

I've only got two movies that I saw in theaters that were so mind numbingly awful they nearly made my head explode.
"Highlander II: The Quickening"
I'm still not over either of them.

"Unless you're completely emotionally dead, maybe. Anyway... haaating these is a red-flag to me."
No doubt you also swooned over "Precious" and "The Help."
Anyway, I'm one of those people who didn't like "The Color Purple" and I don't give a fuck if you don't want to be friends with me. I thought the book was overrated; I thought the movie was terrible. That scene where Celie and her sister are clinging to each other like limpets, a weepin' and a wailin' not to be separated while evil Mister physically pulls them apart is meant to yank the heartstrings but I found it hilariously campy. It was just too much, Stephen Spielberg's overblown idea of pathos. It seemed more like slapstick, what with Celie hanging onto Nettie's dress while she's dragged, clump, clump, clump, down the steps. And aren't teenage girls a little old to be playing patty-cake? That made them seem kind of retarded. And by the way, NONE of that was in the book.

#102, I expected a raucous, Boy's Club sort of atmosphere. It was just dull, like the producers were uncomfortable with the subject matter.
The only "comedy" was unintentional: the dance scenes are snickeringly bad. Unfortunately, not "Showgirls" fun/bad.
None of the characters were delineated well. The addition of a gay character would have been welcomed.
Best scene: in the first five minutes Channing Tatum gets up out of bed and saunters to the bathroom and you get a long, luxurious shot of his whole naked behind. Then it descends quickly into a wan soap opera.

I thought "The Hobbit" was an okay popcorn movie. It's a masterpiece compared to "The Fellowship of the Ring," which I gave up on after the first interminable hour. The teenaged hobbits were insufferable and Elijah Wood reminded me horribly of Michael Jackson. The fight scene between Ian McKellen and Christopher Lee was flat-out embarrassing. It should have been staged with walkers and portable oxygen units.

I saw Magic Mike as a comedy-drama, with the emphasis on the drama and I thought it was just fine.

No, I'm not. I just thought the movie TCP was a ridiculously bad version of a so-so book.

American Bully - mean spirited, racist and totally cheats the ending (newscaster recap to try to make it look like a cautionary tale).
Great ass scene of one of the pups fucking his slut at the abandoned house.

Me too. I don't know how many Steven Spielberg movies I got dragged to before I finally realized how much he sucks.
He always goes for the trite and treacly.

So some people base friendships on what movies they or their friend do or don't like?

r113 really needs to let it go. Enough.

No, R119. But someone so emotionally cold that they are unmoved or contemptuous of a wonderful movie like The Color Purple, or that laughs or derides the situation those girls were in... and who doesn't "get" the patty-cake at the end at all... is not someone I could ever be friends with. Whether due to racism, sociopathy, or just being an asshole/dick, such a person is not one I would care to associate with.

Guilt Trip (it was not funny at all, Seth Rogan has an annoying vocal fry/chortle that he does at the end of almost every line).
Bachelorette (I hated every single character)
Sinister (I like horror, and it was definitely well-made, but it was so dark and disturbing that I had to stop watching it halfway through)

I think the ratio of good movies to bad is about the same as it's always been, but I just have a lower tolerance for bad and mediocre films.

No I don't think so, back in the 60s, 70s & 80s almost all the movies nominated for Oscars were at least watchable and fairly interesting. Now they all suck.

Honey-pie, if you are serious then you are one of the most psychotic, lunatic fangurls ever to rear your ugly head on Datalounge and that is REALLY saying something. You think not liking a movie that you are in love with (you're in love with a movie; how pathetic is that?) constitutes "racism, sociopathy or just being an asshhole/dick?" My stars, you are one sad, sick, fucked up loser.
I most definitely would never, ever, care to associate with the likes of YOU. I'm pretty sure just about everybody who comes in contact with you feels the same way.
