I agree. To me it's like film snobbery. "I like woody allen films" as if that makes a person a literary genius or something.

The only woody allen movie I like is Sleeper. But that's not because of woody allen himself (any other actor could have played the main role). I just like the over-the-top slapstickiness and the futuristic feel. And I do love Diane Keaton in anything she does.

Any of the stupid, moronic, drunken frat guy "humor" movies that contribute to the dumbing down of America, like Dumb and Dumber. "Boob" jokes and toilet humor are not funny in the least. Also, any of the "adult cartoons."

I never bought into Tom Hanks as the main character in Saving Private Ryan. It just didn't mesh for me. when I said that, some looked at me as though I had said I hate Mother Teresa.

I never heard that about Oskar Schindler. I know the jews that survived and went to Israel honored him. I read a biography about him and he wasnt a particularly good business man after the war, from what I gathered.

Never cared for the Rocky series and have never seen one all the way through.

Didn't like A Beautiful Mind that well, not at all, really. But, loved the Russell Crowe role in The Insider.

Scent of A Woman
Pretty Woman

I HATED musicals up until a few years ago and now I like quite a few of them. Just getting older, I guess, and tastes changing.

Have never seen the Kill Bill movies or The Matrix movies and only 2 of the Pirates of the Carribean. I enjoyed the first PotC but lost interest in the others.

Two movies that I absolutely love and others hate, I guess, is Waterworld and The Postman.

Here are a few that I really hated:

2001: A Space Odyssey

A Clockwork Orange

The World According to Garp

Also, like some other posters, I, too, fail to "get" Woody Allen's movies.

I've seen very few movies in the past 15 years, so have no opinions on any recent releases!
