I got all excited when Hunger Games appeared on my free Epix subscription through my Charter internet service. I think I forced myself to watch 30 minutes of it, before turning it off. But, I'm not their audience. I also can't make myself care about Game of Thrones - but that's a TV series.

There's no way on earth I would read or watch anything regarding Shades of Grey. Disgusting subject matter. No way Jose.

Also tried to watch that Sally Fields movie where she wears the ridiculous outfits and has a crush on the young guy? Put it off forever, because it just looked so stupid, but again it showed up on Epix. Again, forced myself to watch max 30 minutes. Horrific.

Maybe this explains why Epix is free? LOL.

And I'm over Bourne whatever sequel he's at now.

David Mclean's Dune - What a mess. with the talent that was in the film, I had such high hopes for it.

The Shining - Ok, if you never read the book, you probably liked it.

Pretty much all of the Batman flicks. Adam West did a better job than most of those clowns.

Transformers movies. OK, yes, Megan Fox was hot in the first one. I liked her. But I'm an old fart, and happily married, so that really wasn't going anywhere. Well, there was that Camaro. I really loved the Camaro.

Avatar - Great visuals. and it started out pretty cool, but it got WAY too preachy.

Episodes 1, 2, 3 of Star Wars. My God! what the hell was Lucas thinking?

Forrest Gump tops my list. Ugh, it's got the be the worst manipulation movie of all time.
Moulin Rouge. I love musicals, but though I tried three times, I never could get past the first 10 minutes.
La La Land. Again, a musical I wanted to love, but was bored to tears throughout.

The Social Network (2010) and Drive (2011). I haven't read any opinion that proves they're anything more than pretty good movies. Millennial-aged movie fans praise them as some cultural filmmaking hallmark, or something.

Dancing with Wolves, I really tried liking it..... several times even, and ugh! Anything with Kevin Costner just turns me off. He's got such a mundane and dull voice.

Friggin Shawshank Redemption. Number 1.

Runners up are: The Usual Suspects, The Martian, Gravity, almost any movie with Tom Hanks (though I like Forrest Gump probably because I like Robert Zemetkis).

Wow, that was nasty.
I am a woman in the demographic this movie was made for. I really enjoy Bette Midler.
I truly disliked Beaches so much so that I will turn off the radio if "Wind Beneath my Wings" comes on.

I did not like Avatar or Hunger Games or any super hero movie.

Then I take it you missed the remake, right?

'Beaches' is a misguided remake of the classic weepie on Lifetime - LA Times
