Some of your comments are funny, but some of the ratings for the movies...if you rated them that low because of that ONE character, then that's stupid.

Check on those ratings again, there are some movies with 5 stars with annoying character in it. Low ratings are for movies that I DON'T LIKE. It's a matter of taste, not stupidity.

Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago at Jan 22 6:07
Most of those comments are just way too cryptic to make up what you mean. For example, what do you mean with 'I don't believe her!' ? Do you mean that the acting was not convincing or something else maybe?
Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago at Jan 22 6:27
your my friend mili and i'll be honest with you... it's a very desappointing list. anthony hopkins not scary as Hannibal WOW (he won a Oscar) and you did not realized that Quentin Tarantino always put a bit of parodie in his movies Brad Pitt character in Inglourious Basterds is a mix of Marlon Brando and Clark Gable for fun and for Leo Dicaprio in Django it's also a parodie. Kate Winslet in Titanic was nominated at the Oscar for that role.i think you were in a bad mood when you create this list (lol)
Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago at Jan 22 19:49
@johanlefourbe

Yes, it means - in that particular role he/she didn't convince me with his/her acting. I chose the examples in which that is too obvious for me. I repeat, for me.

@darkwarrior

Brad Pitt's acting solutions are rather childish, like changing voice + moustache. What annoys me is that I don't expect one fine actor to use what any child can in school play. You should expect more from actors, especially in parody. His character should be larger than life, but he acts as if he had spine surgery. He tries so hard to achieve smoothness and coolness which are of the most importance for the good role. Actor should be spontaneous and relaxed in his role and that is something that B. Pitt lacks in here.
(Not even "B" of Brando there, btw).

Q. Tarantino is one of my favorite movie directors, but after Kill Bill strange things happen: his movies lack in structure, clarity of ideas, flawless castings and great sense of humor. There is no genuine lucidity in them for which I personally LOVED him. Hope it's just a phase of his creative work.

Actors Anthony Hopkins & Kate Winslet are good actors, there's no doubt about that. I only don't like job they've done in those movies. Hannibal works for many, but Evilenko (Malcolm McDowell) works better for me. I've always laughed watching Hannibal, even when movie came out and I was 13.
What annoys me is exactly the fact he should be scary man, not just an old man professor type (could not understand how on Earth people never doubted he eats human flash?!).
Again, he didn't convince me though he tried hard. I don't believe him.
Kate Winslet is totally unconvincing (for me) as a woman who is a little bit of everything - gracious, noble, fragile, with a witt and courage as well. It's a call for Chloe Sevigny, maybe, for Kate Winslet - no way. Even Cameron wasn't sure about chosing Kate, like he said he wanted "an Audrey Hepburn type" and was considering Gwyneth Paltrow, Claire Danes and Gabrielle Anwar . Unfortunately, he was so right.

Your argument is Oscar. I alone could write you a novel on Oscar prize, but I got other things on my mind. Let's just say - you believe in Oscar, I don't.

@everyone
And now on comments.
Acting is a public work, therefore open to criticism of all kinds. Actors are not Gods, they are people who have a job to do. Sometimes they do it superbly, bravely, smoothly, creatively, passionately, sensitively, oddly and it works. Sometimes they overdoing, underdoing, trying too hard, thinking too hard, fighting desperately against their own nature, faking and therefore mistaking. It is healthy to point out the both sides of their abilities. That way not only that you help them developing their craft, but also your own standards rise.

Besides, this is a list of annoying movie characters, not annoying actors. Big difference.

I will not explain anything further on.

my job is to evaluate movies,screenplays and actors and if i was a hater it would be impossible to do my job well and i really don't understand peoples who are haters it's like somekind of a weird bad habit for me (lol). if i say that Anthony Hopkins and Kate Winslet were good in those movies it's because i've personnally made a critic of their acting in both movies in 1991 and 1997 and it as nothing to do with Oscars. Anthony Hopkins was outstanding in that movie but for Kate Winslet she was lovely and beautiful in that movie and she was great in the scene where Jack (Leo) died and she tried to scream for help after but it's surely not her best acting effort in her career, personnally i've would had choose Cameron Diaz for that role because she was a stunning beauty in the mid 90's.
Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago at Jan 22 22:55
I think my main issue with this list is the way you presented your opinions. Mostly that I think some deserved more of an explanation as to why you found them annoying; some of the comments are repetitive or just don't give a good outlook or are a bit confusing. I think the list would be better if you built up on it a little. (:

But overall I don't think it's a bad list, and I agree with several of the ones on here. And of the ones I don't agree with? Definitely not going to sit here and try to preach and tell you you're wrong. A lot of the responses to this list were unnecessarily rude, or seemed not to take into account that you are entitled to your own opinions. Just because a role is generally accepted as good doesn't mean that everyone is going to agree; if you want to disagree with the majority, then that's totally fine. And I definitely agree that it's perfectly acceptable to hate a role but not the actor/actress.

So overall I think more descriptive explanations would help, but I'm not going to start bashing you just because we disagree on some of the choices themselves. xD
Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago at Jan 23 11:01
@milica, I agree that you could develop your arguments a little bit more but I respect your choices (and I even agree on some of those) because you have the right to have your own taste. And don't spend too much time arguing with DarkWarrior, he thinks he knows better than yourself what you should like...

hey johanlefourbe the big head you think your more intelligent then others and you think that i don't have a reason to say that Anthony Hopkins did great in silence of the lamb, how come a thousands of movie critics around the world acclaimed is work in that movie and millions of fans too, do you think that when i say something it's only about my opinion and nothing else. shout your mouth instead of saying stupid things like that stupid dumbhead
Posted: 4 years, 9 months ago at Jan 28 6:14
@darkwarrior, you don't need to insult me... The facts that 1000s of critics and 100000s of viewers loved Hannibal Lecter is just really irrelevant. Milica didn't like this character and that's why she put him on this list and why not? 1000000s of people believe in God but I don't and I won't change my mind just to follow the pack.

Concerning 'The Silence of the lambs', even though I enjoyed the movie and Hannibal Lecter, I never thought it was that amazing so I understand where Milica is getting at. And even if I loved this movie, she still would be entitled to NOT love it.
Edit: 4 years, 9 months ago
Posted: 4 years, 9 months ago at Jan 28 6:56
I wouldn't worry about any of it, Mili. It's your list and your choices so it is, ultimately, about what you dislike for whatever reasons. Whether you disliked the character because of poor acting or fine acting which resulted in a character which you found bothersome or disturbing is irrelevant.

There are characters on this list that I, personally, loved or liked; that doesn't mean that I'm right or wrong anymore than it does for you. It's not about right or wrong; it's about what you like or dislike.

There is no right or wrong.

I could make my own similar list and there would be sufficient fuel for the fire for 'critics' to find fault with it, too. That's what critics do - find fault and praise. Ultimately, they are operating under their own preferences. Anyone can be a professional critic; it simply requires them to be paid for the job and they are immediately made a 'professional', at least for the duration of the job. It doesn't mean they are good at the job.

It surely doesn't mean that they are wiser than you or I.

Just because the majority likes or dislikes something, doesn't mean you should follow along like a mindless lemming. As evidence I present the current blight on global television: reality TV. I find it deplorable and lacking in imagination but the masses seem to like it. Personally, I think that says something about the masses, but that's just me. ;D

I find Steve Carrell's character in The Office completely annoying (along w/ everyone else in that show) to the point of madness. Yet many love the show that I refuse to watch. I hate it. I don't know Carrell personally; he might be a nice guy and not at all annoying. I just hate the character. That doesn't make the show good or bad. It just means that I hate it. That, in turn, doesn't make me wrong for doing so either.

There's an old saying that works well in this instance: Those who can do, those who can't teach. The same can be said for close-minded 'critics'. Anyone who thinks you are 'wrong' because of your choices here is, in effect, close-minded. I wouldn't worry. ;P

Mislim da su super odigrane uloge koje koje i jesu namjesnki iritantne, doduše kod braće Kohen je to uvijek u prilog komediji, dok je cura iz Frantica realan lik zaljubljenog derišta :D
