I would sit through Paul Blart Mall Cop while someone stapled my calves together rather than sit through BEACHES again. Watching BEACHES is like putting on your sister's dress and sitting in a dark closet while you pour salt into your eyelids just so that you can cry like a little girl.

I watched BEACHES when I was 16 because a girl I liked wanted to watch it. When it was over and she liked it, I no longer liked the girl. That's how much I hated BEACHES.

Wow. You might consider therapy. Or more fiber. Or something.

Of course, you aren't exactly the demographic the movie was aimed at, so it's not surprising that you didn't really care for it (understatement, I know).

Others:

BEACHES. Watching this qualifies as cruel and unusual punishment.

THE MATRIX. All style. No substance.

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Other than Joseph Gordon Levitt, this movie is almost unwatchable in its sheer awfulness.

THE ENGLISH PATIENT. The single-most pretentious movie of the '90s. You know your heroes are unlikeable when the audience actually wants the Nazis to kill them.

AMERICAN BEAUTY. A very stylish movie with great acting that doesn't say much in the end.

DEADPOOL. If a thirteen-year-old virgin who did nothing but watch internet porn all day long were given $58 million to make a movie, this is what it would look like.
Agree with your list with the exception of Beaches, which was an excellent movie.

Hmmmm... my list will consist of:

Avatar

Guardians of the Galaxy

Bone Tomahawk

Top Gun

Anything Star Trek or Star Wars

Sleepless In Seattle

Any of the Captain America, Wolverine, ironman...marvel movies.

Hunger Games series

there are more...I can't think of them right now
Top gun and sleepless in Seattle are both great. You are spot on with everything else.

The Martian
Gravity

Really dumb versions of already made "lost in space" movies which both substituted high school humor and middle school love interest rather than focus on the sheer helplessness, anxiety, and creepiness of being alone in space.

True. I'm not a female baby boomer narcissist wallowing in a mid-life crisis. Maybe if I were, I might "get" BEACHES.

Nor am I a baby boomer narcissist wallowing in a mid-life crisis (I am female). But I still enjoy the movie.
