1. Anything by Director Kevin Smith. I just find all of it very un-funny. Especially the movie "Dogma". A little to cutesy for my taste

2. I Heart Huckabees......I just didn't get it.

3. Every film by Quentin Tarantino. Not a fan of films with excessive violence or torture scenes, and the characters he portrays in his own films are often quasi tough guys...also, his films are generally filled with conversations I find boring. Royal with Cheese? No thanks.

4. Most of the modern super hero movies based on comics. I think the last ones I liked were the Superrman movies with Christopher Reeve in the late 70's.

5. The Big lebowski. I could only take a few minutes of it, then I was bored. So, I guess I would say I strongly dislike anything by the Coen brothers....with the exception of "O Brother, where art though".


So basically, these are all movies most of you cherish, correct?

How did I know Lebowski would be on that list? I love it, but then again, I was a member of the Seattle Seven.

Two films I can't stand are the Princess Bride and Labrinth. I think it was growing up in the 80's with an older sister that forever moved those to the null file of my mind.

Anything with Owen Wilson.
Anything with Julianne Moore.
Dysfunctional family films, especially ones with Owen Wilson or Julianne Moore.
Pretentious art films, except for “Alphaville”.
“Titanic”

Here is a similar topic from the distant past.

TikiCentral:Tell Me Why Little Miss Sunshine was nominated?!

How come I can't remember where my car keys are every morning but I remember this topic? And I remember lots of these members being very visible in the past but have seemed to disappeared. Perhaps in the social network haze?

I too, am getting tired of movies with Owen Wilson...at first, it was funny...but he seems to play the same character over and over...same with Vince Vaughn....and to some extent, Ben Stiller...

(although, the focker movies happen to be among my favorites).

I do like movies that have real actors, like Sean Penn...people who can actually transform themselves into different people....Jeff Spicoli and the lawyer from Carlito's way are the same actor? (for one great example)

Good Will Hunting.
Of course the custodian is a genius.
He mops floors cuz it's fun.

Fight Club.
They want to blow up the banking system to help the little guy and
wipe his bills clear?
And to give a blow to the rich man.
A. The RICH man has more to win as the banks will loan him TONS o cash.
B. The Hollywood brats who made this movie ARE the rich man! Hypocrites.

Just about anything Disney & Pixar has made in the last 15 years.

It's funny, cause I loved Saving Mr. Banks, which was ripped to shreds in the media for being too pro corporate Disney, which I thought was exactly the opposite of what was intended by their entire production team!

I like disney!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZAY-78zhmw

and princess and the frog was classically animated!

And in many ways, they got a lot right. In the clip above, we see semi-accurate representations of the 7 african powers (the yoruba religion's main gods) in the masks above Doc facilier:

http://www.squidoo.com/sevenafricanpowers

And as for Doc Facilier himself, he is a very accurate representation of the Haitian loa, Baron Samedi

https://www.google.com/search?q=baron+samedi&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=qfH7UqLVG8rfoATboIGQBw&sqi=2&ved=0CDAQsAQ&biw=1366&bih=667


So, not all Disney movies are bad!

On a completely separate note, has this forum become so infantilized that we now have to warn potential readers about controversy? Or is that a trick to get people to read it? What's, like, the deal?

I prefer a non-political correctness myself
& I hate Adam Sandler movies, these are made for Frat boys.

Watched "There Will Be Blood" tonight. It was very long, and incredibly pointless.

I just didn't want anyone to get their panties in a twist because I dislike Tarantino movies!

You should have seen the shit storm that rained down on me because I posted about not liking the grateful dead, beatles and phish. (I never even thought there would be that many hippies here on a mid- century style focused forum...)
