It seemed up my alley. You know french people and revolutions and the possibility of cake. Only it was as if there wasn't a revolution. And it was dreadfully boring. But at least it was pretty?

Timeline (2003)
It seemed up my alley. Sci-fi and medieval french dudes. Only it sucked. I wouldn't have been upset had it not been for the possible potential of this being amazing (MEDIEVAL FRENCH DUDES AND TIME MACHINES).
That and I really liked the book.

The Producers (2005)
I like the 1968 version better. It was just better done in general, not this lifeless piece o crap. It wasn't funny and each song I had to go through wincing in pain.

Actually for all I know this might have a really amazing ending that makes up for the movie. Too bad I'll never know since I fell asleep out of boredom. I'll stick to the Kurosawa version thank ya very much.

I really wanted to be like everyone else and like this film. It had alot of things going for it but I suppose it just wasn't my thing. Johnny Depp was cool though.

I don't remember actually why I didn't like it. (I must have suppressed the bad memories about random sex scenes) But I'm not about to rewatch it to find out.

I didn't like the second but I honestly didn't think it could get worse.

I love me some Miyazaki Ghibli films but I'm sorry Porco Rosso. You just didn't do it for me. I don't think I was old enough to appreciate it.

The concept looked awesome and the potential was high. But for some strange reason it just didn't click with me.

I too wanted to be part of the hip unconventional movie lover group. But I felt like this movie just shoots itself in the foot and I didn't have enough testosterone understand.

I too wanted to be part of the hip unconventional movie lover group. Too bad I get bored easily. I did enjoy Paul Dano crying like a girl though.

I Am Legend (2007)
Will Smith and the dog were alright in the film but they weren't enough to save me from the boredom and possible plot holes.

I actually couldn't finish watching and I suppose I wasn't in the right mind set but until then it stays on this list.

I found it to be very boring and I didn't have the patience nor the curiosity to sit through the end and find out what the hell is going on.

A fantastic cast and/or direction ain't saving anyone here.

Great concept.

i am with you on charlie and the chocolate factory. tried hard to like it. it just did not work.

i did like porco rosso, though!
Posted: 10 years, 3 months ago at Jun 4 18:16
Have you considered Big Fish?
Posted: 10 years, 3 months ago at Jun 5 2:17
Might just have to make one of these for myself, but maybe with books.
Posted: 10 years, 3 months ago at Jun 9 22:59
I saw the magnificent seven. Ending sucked so you didn't miss much.

The "random sex/rave scene" was in Matrix Reloaded, not Revolutions.
Posted: 9 years, 8 months ago at Jan 9 21:32
Love this list!
But have to agree with Lemona, Porco was ok but it may be an age thing. However do not add Big Fish as Kryptic Centurion suggested, that's a decent movie! Hmmm must write a review!

I don't agree with some of them like The Rocky Horror Picture Show and No Country for Old Men.... but the rest you're right!
Posted: 7 years, 5 months ago at Apr 14 5:02
I totally agree with Marie Antoinette, I can´t watch "no country for old man" until the end, matrix is boring, but i like the chocolat factory, it´s strange and colorfull
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Oct 23 21:41
Totally agree with Cat in the Hat and Charlie and the chocolate factory! BUT how can you not like Rocky Horror??
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Oct 23 21:51
The Cat in The Hat was a joke! Hate it. :)

How about a "I Wanted to Hate but Couldn't" list?
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Oct 24 2:44
I agree the 1968 Producers is funny and far superior to the musical.

I liked No Country For Old Men, but didn't get the ending.

Vincent Price's Last Man on Earth is much better than I Am Legend.

The same goes with Willie Wonka. Gene Wilder's performance was much better than Depp's even though the movie's effects were not as advanced.

I liked Magnifient Seven. I didn't find it boring at all.
