Films that do nothing for you.
Top Gun is terrible and I really can’t see why people continue with it.. even though it’s supposed to be naff it’s just unwatchable guff. Reason it was so popular in the first place was because it was one of the first films to use surround sound, the planes moving back to front etc
Peter Jackson’s films are indulgent to the extreme, the idea that he’s got 3 films out of the hobbit….Posted 5 years agomrmonkfingerMember
Titanic & Avatar. Both utter arse, from start to finish. Cameron did make Aliens, but that doesn’t excuse him.
“New” Star Wars, all of them. Absolute guffzilla.
Inglurious Basterds. Actually, anything by Tarantino after Pulp Fiction, they’re all over self-indulgant tosh.Posted 5 years agoDezBSubscriber
Ok film but that ending makes me hate it …I wanted to vomit
Too american to sickly sweet too preposterous
Ruined an otherwise Ok film.
This. Same goes for:
Heat – ruined by crap ending
Silence of the Lambs – ruined by crap ending
Also James Bond films – too stupid to even watch with brain in reality suspension mode.
Anything with Tom Hanks. just can’t stand his face or voice. His acting is just the same character with a different accent.

Considering it always comes up as one of if not the best film ever Citizen Kane is complete crap and has no entertainment value whatsoever . Also considering how good Pulp fiction is I hated Reservoir Dogs , a thoroughly nasty film without any redeeming features or any humour to lift the mood .Posted 5 years agolovewookieMember
Alien, zedfest. the sequels I like, the first is not great.
prometheus – could have been great, what kept me going was the look of the film rather than the content.
hurt locker – good, if it was on TV.
twilight – I’m not a 12 year old girl.
tried watching tinker tailor soldier buttmuch, three times I tried. I even tried watching it with my wife, but no, even that didn’t make it more interesting.
any of the saw films after the first one, yes, we know you can make things look like they’re real and bloody…move along please…
ummm. can’t remember any others…Posted 5 years agojohnellisonMember
I’m struggling to understand some of the choices on this thread
I’m amazed at some of the titles that people are pulling out for being shite! The Hurt Locker for one – it’s an amzing film! I’ve watched it over and over and it STILL has me on the edge of my seat.
Bladerunner is one of the all-time cinematic greats – yes, it’s a sprawling mish-mash but it’s supposed to be! Again, I can watch it over and over and still find something new about it, it constantly has the power to surprise.
For my part I can’t stand anything with Jonah Hill or Seth Rogan involved (except “Paul” – but that’s because Simon Pegg and Nick Frost thought of it); any of the American Pie or Hangover films; anything to do with Harry Pothead; and any of the “Brat Pack” films.
That said, films are a very personal thing; I think a lot of people form an opinion about a film before the’ve seen it and consequently get very disappointed when it doesn’t turn out as they expected. Most creative media is like this, and surely that’s the point – there is no “right” and “wrong” (granted there’s a few absolute stinkers out there, there always will be) but ultimately it’s up to the viewer to decide what is valid.Posted 5 years agoHadgeMember
All this thread proves is another mans meat is another mans poison. I’m staggered at some choices – “anything by Tarantino” – really?Posted 5 years ago
I’m not a big Nicholas Cage fan but Leaving Las Vegas is in my opinion a staggeringly brutal film and his acting is fantastic. But as stated, just MY opinion.
For me and I know lots won’t understand but I don’t like the Godfather films, maybe I just wasn’t in the right frame of mind when watching them.toppers3933Member
I have sat through the first 2 godfather films and I do not get the fascination at all. A snorfest from start to finish. They made the first Lord (Bored) of the rings seem interesting. I mentioned this to a few friends recently and I honestly thought I was going to get lynched.Posted 5 years ago
