    Dances with wolves is absolutely painful to watch.

    Now, I'm not saying anyone should have ever thought Dances With Wolves was better than Goodfellas. But at the time it worked a lot better than it does now. Costner had yet to make all those embarrassing choices that turned his career into a joke. Robot buffaloes seemed amazing before Terminator 2 had blown our minds. Those great 1990s British ensemble films had not yet shown us how much better the Brits are at period films. Hollywood had not churned out a string of terrible plagiarisms in hopes of getting Oscars into the hands of douchebags like Tom Cruise. And just look at all the other shit that came out in 1990.

    Twilight
    My aunt popped the movie in as i was doing dishes in the same room. Shes obsessed.
    Sparkily vampires. Honestly vampires are not supposed to sparkle. The lack of acting skills and bad plot also played a role but i could not watch more than 20 minutes of the movie before walking out. Interview with the Vampire and Blade must have spoiled me, where the hell did the sexy badass vampires go?!

    -Dude. I dare you to watch the twilight film with the werewolves in it. I laughed my ass off. They look like giant stuffed animals and the characters are all "OH DEAR ITS A SCARY WEREWOLF". Childhoodplushietrauma??
    :D yes the movies are utterly horrible. But funny very funny. For all the wrong reasons. haha.

    A.I and Battlefield Earth both so long and so boring only two movies I fell asleep watching.
    Battlefield Earth is even hard to watch as a Rifftrax. It is so bad making fun of it is boring.

    Twilight

    Did you know that the next one (and, thank heaven, the last one) has the main werewolf fall in love with the main girl's baby? That's pretty amazing stuff right there. I haven't seen all of them, but was dragged by family to see 2 of them in the theater. They are pretty horrible, for sure. Everyone around me was annoyed because I couldn't stop laughing.

    Also, regarding Braveheart, YES. Watched that once, and would never recommend it to anyone. And he didn't even kill anyone with that flag. What a waste. I felt bad because I found it so laughable, and had trouble hiding it from my friend who was watching it with me and said it was his favorite film.

    @Fishelle- yes. I read the books. On my kindle. So you couldn't see me reading them. They were so baddddd.
    But then again it lead to me musing on how the fur trade would have differed if you had people hunting sparklevamps...

    Braveheart- I liked it when it came out. And haven't really seen it again. Totally not really historical but *shrugs* Mel Gibson can do crazy.

    I did fall alseep at a friend's house while watching that Alexander the great movie when it came out on dvd, however.

    Speaking of putting people to sleep, the Avenger's movie (the one we recently did a R/R thread on) apparently put my father, mother, sister and another family they went to see the movie with right to sleep. In the theater. My brother was the only one who made it through awake.

    @RenThing - I think I liked that movie when I was a kid, but I also liked movies starring Shaquille O'Neal. Speaking of horrible movies, how about movies starring Shaquille O'Neal?

    Here's what I don't get. Why are the Twilight emos called vampires in the first place? The trade-off of eternal life for not being able to ever see the sun again or to taste food is integral to the entire vampire mythology. Removing that makes them something different, so just give them another name and then people who are into actual vampires needn't be tainted by the Meyers drivel.

    Supposedly Meyers actually admitted she knew nothing about vampire folklore when she wrote the books, but "extensively researched Native American Werewolf lore."
    My question is how can you know THAT little about vampire to make them into.... that... thing...

    Also she admitted it all came to her in a sexually-related dream.

    So Twilight is her supernatural wet dream.
    Pretty pathetic.

    @Fishelle - I haven't seen nor read Twilight but I'm anxious for the last movie. I want to see if they have the balls to do everything that's on the books the werewolf doing the c-section with his teeth, the falling in love with the newborn baby that has telepathic powers and a mind of an adult and so many other batshit insane stuff I've heard that I can't remember right now. If they really do it, maybe people will wake up and realize how that whole series has weird ideas and purposes.

    The Troy movie from 2004. Another movie I caught on tv and can't remember if I finished watching it or gave up. The only thing I remember is it was boring.

    I think Daredevil just because it ruined what could been a good comic movie.
  7.  (10077.254)
    @DC - I'm in a similar situation but mostly because I ripped through the first three films in about a week with my girlfriend... and help from the guys at RiffTrax. I don't care to see the film but I cannot wait to see/hear what they do with the film.

    "Does ANYBODY have a line?!"

    Caligula. Not even redeemable by mockery. 20 minutes into the DVD we decided we'd rather wash the dishes.

    A Life Less Ordinary by Danny Boyle.

    Ends with a plasticine montage.....set to an Oasis tune...fucking terrible.

    Inexplicably, I kept stopping myself from walking out at several points.

    I don't mind cheaply made bad movies as much as big budget bobbins like Troy and numerous others mentioned before.

    Actually, Eyes Wide Shut(shit) deserves a mention here.

    Even plentiful scenes of nudity and cavorting were not enough to stop my younger self from dry heaving all the way through at this piece of shit.

    Jesus, I just remembered that I actually was taken to the cinema to see Spice Girls the movie.

    It was a dating thing...no excuse really.

    It's just the last book. Even the fans think the last one is kind of weird and crazy. Since they won't dare to do a R-Rated movie I'm curious to see what they will resort to on these scenes.

    There's a lot you can do with a PG-13 rating these days.
