Titanic. The way the leads say each other's name in just about every scene is annoying.

E.T. I'm into alien flicks but this felt very manipulative.

Independence Day. I just can't.

Poltergeist (original): Overrated or maybe I'm desensitized towards 80's horror.

Life of Pi, wanted very much to like, but special effects overpowered the story line too much for me to enjoy it.

There were certain things that I wanted to see brought to life from the book, but when it happened on screen it fell flat. I still enjoyed the movie but (all together now!) "The Book Was Better."

The best part of that movie was when my cat tried to attack the screen every time Richard Parker came on


I just watched Wild and hated it. Reese Witherspoon was too old to play that role, and Laura Dern was too young to play her mother. I'm quite over movies based on books about people going out into the wilderness and roughing it.

I may be dense, but I can't quite figure out how a person "can't stand" a movie he's never seen.

Different strokes for different folks, I guess. These were two of my very favorite movies of all time!

I'm with you there. I didn't think I was going to make it through it.

Here's the top 100 grossing movies of ALL TIME WORLDWIDE & I haven't cared to watch most of them:

All Time Highest Grossing Movies Worldwide

I never realized how many people like those fantasy genre of movies & there's a lot of cartoons, which I guess isn't too surprising since most people have kids.

To comment on a few...

Avatar - Don't see what all the hoopla is about.

Forrest Gump - Didn't care for.

Hancock - I didn't care for it & can't even fathom why it's on the list at all.

I don't have any interest to even watch many of them.

...

Ha ha, at least the cat thought the special effects were convincing. I thought the tiger in particular felt fake.
