    too much of the plot development was reliant on the unsaid: expressions, inferences etc

    I dislike Starship Troopers and American Pie II for much the same reasons. There’s just too much nuance and subtlety.

    There is a long list.

    deerhunter – i just didn’t enjoy it; the juxtaposition between pensylvania and vietnam doesn’t have enough parrelels to work imo- seems like two films accidently spliced if that makes sense. everyone i tell this to derides me!

    There Will Be Blood
    Mist

    Loads more but those too spring to mind from last year and both very painful to watch.

    American Beauty.
    Burn After Reading.
    Lost in Translation.

    All no more than average, IMO

    Oh and here’s another that was merely OK and not great, No Country For Old Men. I got a bit bored, switched off during Tommy Lee Jones’ little monologue near the end and then realised that was actually the end. Damn, perhaps I should have been paying attention

    is deer hunter supposed to “work” based on parallels between the two lives? i have always just enjoyed it on the basis that the horrors or what normal men are subjected to in vietnam meant they were unable to function when they got back to their previous lives?

    Titanic – has to be over-rated right?

    ET is good for kids I suppose.

    The Gladiator is OK but over-rated too IMO.

    Juan…FAIL…

    The general consensus at the time was that Pearl Harbour was far from being highly rated 😀

    Lost in Translation

    PeterPoddy, you are so, so wrong, on so many levels.

    <shakes head>

    (Juan – that may be a crap film, but it’s hard to write a good screenplay about a scripting language)

    DrJ, with you on Lost In Translation. It does not deserve to be on this thread, but then I know more people who’d agree with PeterPoddy than me

    no. sorry i didn’t think i explained myself very well. i just feel like its not the same characters – may as well be rambo and two weddings. perhaps i jsut dont like the film (or get it)

    i agree re: no country. overhyped imo

    Crash – The one with Brendan Fraser,Sandra Bullock, Matt Dillon at al.

    That’s two and half hours of my life that I’ll never get back.

    What’s that film with Clive Owen, Julia Roberts, Queen Amidala and I think Jude Law? Depressing and boring bunch of tosh

    Well I liked Pulp Fiction, Shawshank a lot! And Sixth Sense too – well only worth watching once really.

    Crash – both of them.

    oh, yes, Sixth Sense was rubbish. Stick to firing guns Brucie.

    Oh well there is a reason I am a comp chemist 😉

    Jonny Mnemonic – although to be honest I don’t think anyone rated it at the time. I missed an episode of Father Ted on the box to go see that pile of tripe at the cinema, bobbins of the highest order

    This is NOT a troll like last week’s. I DID see Godfather Part II for the first time very recently and it was a bit disappointing. Maybe I’m a bit thick, but there were too many characters whose names I could not remember and too much of the plot development was reliant on the unsaid: expressions, inferences etc

    Anyone got any other supposedly “classic” films that didn’t really do much for them?

    Apocalypse Now
    Withnail and I

    Just terrible, both of them.

    I tried to find out what on earth ROFLMAO means and found this. I still don’t know what it means but I’ve just had a good giggle

    Eh? What? That was a bloody fabulous film!! Now as for No Country for Old Men…it was very good, but certainly not great.

    Withnail is great, so’s Crash (the good one?!).

    Kill Bill. Aweful film. I’ll never get that 90 minutes back.
    Pulp Fiction – was ok, but nothing more.

    I love Kill Bill – two scenes in particular, where she goes into the bar to get Hanzo to make her the sword, and the showdown with O Ren.

    Pulp Fiction – just brilliant, start to finish.

    Guess we’re all different.
