    I guess I'm a pretty forgiving guy :D

    Grave of the Fireflies is the only one I see fitting this topic. There are movies I don't like, but this is the only one I hate with passion, especially ones that other people really like. There's tragedy, and then there's just plain too-stupid-to-live. This movie goes in the latter.

    Also why I tend to stay away from most horror/slasher movies.

    I need to get my hate-O-meter looked at. Other than Titanic, I'm drawing a blank. .

    Hi, I'd like to nominate "Lost in space". The visuals sucked big time (except for the crash) and the acting so poor even for great actors like Oldman and Hurt. I just cannot watch it again.

    Oh, and the silly comedies like "Scary Movie", "Date Movie" , and so on ! Those should be bannished from videostores!!!

    That was in the GN. In the movie, he's definitely for democracy, civil rights and social justice, not anarchy. Hence the reason for both the movie's ending and why it makes no damn sense.

    Any Bollywood movie - I dated a chick once, who wasnt even Indian, and she would watch this crap all the time. These movies are pure crap and have the same plot: poor, repressed chick is beat/married off to someone she dont love/tortured/runs away and in the end either ends up with the guy she wants or learns some great lesson. I'll tell you the Bollywood movie I want to see: Pakistan invades India and nukes the place so no more Bollywood movies are produced.

    Harry Potter movies all suck. I saw two and was totally lost and at the end wanted to shove his stick up his butt.

    Twilight movies are horrible. The girl in them is ugly and looks like a worn out drug abuser ho and the vampires all look like a bunch of gay emo losers. Let the True Blood vamps get into a fight with Edward or whatever his name is and see who wins in the end.

    It had me entertained until the
    the main character got killed randomly about 2/3 of the way in at which point it just fell apart completely. It just disturbed the flow of the entire film, by trying to go on and make me care about a side character who wasn't of any use and the antagonist who has about as much charisma as a brick wall, instead of ending like a proper story.

    Two more...

    - 2001: A Space Odyssey (an unbearably long classical music video with no substance)

    - Star Trek: The Motion Picture (an unbearably long 2001 wannabe in Trek wrapping)

    There are several movies I cannot stand:

    The Watchmen - I can sum up my experience in one word: "wha?"

    Freddie Got Fingered
    - I couldn't even finish this movie. Twenty minutes in and I was done.

    Old School
    - Sometimes, Will Ferrell can be hilarious, but when he's off, he's WAY off. This movie was pure garbage, and I felt like I wasted my life watching the 30 minutes I could stomach of this movie.

    Citizen Kane - Nothing but an ultrahyped "classic".

    District 9 - I saw it in the theatre and immediately thought of Alien Nation. There were so many things through out the movie that reminded me of it
    Battlefield Earth - I loved the book, but I couldn't believe a movie could be so bad.
    I'm on the edge about Twilight. On the one hand I REALLY hate it. But on the other, I think it is SO horrible that it is extremely funny! :D Vampires that glitter in sunlight? Vegitarian vampires? Christian vampires that are not vegitarians? Is it fun to watch because it is so stupid or should I hate it?

    I am also on the list of people who have trouble with hating movies. I will watch a movie that I think I will like. For example, I thought I was going to like Battlefield Earth because the book was so good. I'm not a fan of gore/horror movies, so I won't see movies like Event Horizon, Pitch Black, or the Aliens series (though I eventually saw all of those) A friend once said that Pitch Black was ruined by the previews because you saw what the aliens looked like before the movie came out.
    But not liking a movie and the OP are different things.

    Both the nice (though greedy) girl and guy die, and the killer gets away. As a result, the sheriff, a symbolic shepherd of men, loses his faith in the basic goodness of humanity. In what sense is this not a conclusive ending?

    BTW, Eyes Wide Shut has a similarly tidy resolution.

    I actually clicked back into this thread to add just that. I had a friend who loved it, and I was seriously tempted to discontinue having anything to do with him because of it.

    Exactly! :techman: V was certainly fighting for democracy, not anarchy and chaos.

    He destroyed the former parliament to sparkle the inevitable revolution against a brutal totalitarian regime. The building was not a parliament anymore and it didn't serve its original purpose. It had become a symbol of Suttler's dictatorship and that was the main reason for its destruction. This is often mistaken by some people and even movie critics as an act of terrorism, but those are two completely different things.

    One of the first things the French rovolutioners did after their victory was to destroy the hateful prison known as the Bastille, because it was a symbol of the tyranny of monarchy.

    JJ's Star Trek.

    Star Trek - Nemesis.

    Batman & Robin.

    Any Twilight movie.

    And I can't remember the title, but it was about a black rapper wanting to be part of some golf club that his father used to work at. The rapper starts with attempting to bribe his way into the golf club, and after the owner refuses, finds a way to blackmail himself into the club. And oh, yeah, the owner has a black wife, and as he's stressing out about getting the PGA Golf Tour to use his club's course, isn't 100% there to weigh on her every whim. So she starts hooking up with one of the rapper's black entourage, making her a whore. And oh, yeah, the rapper at one point hovers a helicopter over the green gets out, and his bodyguard's was walking around with a gun. But when the owner obviously interested only the guy's class or lack there of attempts to have him removed from the club on some of these violations, they play it as if it's his skin color that's the problem.

    I stopped watching, I couldn't bare to continue watching that pile of shit.
