The OP is ridiculous if he thought Malcolm X was bad. That's one of the most amazing American movies of all time.

RUBBISH!!! That movie was great, and it DID have an ending!!! You just had to pay attention to the sudden twist; it ended from the Sherriff's perspective instead of Luellen's. Watch it again and you'll get it.

the first scenes out of les miserables (2012) was just disturbing to me..

russel crowe and hugh jackman singing

a priest doing mass in latin sounds better

and while anne hathaway was singing " i dreamed a dream" the camera was only focusing on the face and shoulder (there must be a term for this in movie-making) the whole time. it didn't zoom out one bit. boring is an understatement.

i enjoyed the thenardier part! it was hilarious

I agree

I wish that John Carpenter could have followed his original plan: a series of films about Halloween but without recurring characters.

Imagine having the audacity to gruesomely kill a child on camera! Then there's the scene in which the woman is examining the button... Plus, just the opening scene is so spooky and ominous, one of the best openings to a movie that I can think of, reminding me somewhat of "Kiss Me Deadly".

I do think that this film is gaining in reputation, with more people revisiting it and others just now discovering it.

EDIT: Oops! I see that this is supposed to be the worst list. So, to stay on topic, I'll add these, which simply do not appeal to me:
Cast Away ~ I could not bring myself to watch this. I don't care for Tom Hanks after "Splash", maybe "Big". He just got too full of himself. I don't think he's a good actor, and he's not much to look at. I didn't want to see a half-dressed Hanks alone on an island. That would be too much to deal with. Uck! The ads were bad enough.

The Happening ~ I doubt that I need to explain this one. It's simply all-'round atrocious to me. I even watched it a second time to verify that it was as dreadful as I first thought. I'll stick with the Sixties film titled "The Happening", starring Anthony Quinn, Faye Dunaway (her film debut?), Michael Parks, Robert Walker Jr., George Maharis, Martha Hyer, Milton Berle and a host of great character actors.

Hancock ~ Stinkbomb! I kept thinking it might get just a little better, but it's a complete loss to me. My dislike of Will Smith couldn't overcome it. I have yet to see him in any role I like.

Wild Wild West ~ Even Kevin Kline couldn't save this in any way~not even the giant mechanical spider! It's an insult to the TV series, which is a lot of fun, always enjoyable and provides us with the handsome duo of Robert Conrad and Ross Martin.

anything with Adam Sandler
