    I thought that the first time I watched it. On second viewing, I changed my mind completely. Strangely, I did the same with Jackie Brown. I guess with both I was expecting the impact that Pulp Fiction had. Can't believe that Pulp is now 20yrs old.

    Your not alone, i remember watching at the cinema and being completely underwhelmed, in some way it just mustn't have met my expectation of what it was going to be. Having seen it twice since then I swear it gets better each time - it's the only film for me which has ever done so.

    The Grey with Liam Neeson, what a pile of utter tripe. I wish I could have those two hours back!

    With Inglorious I never made it past the 10 minute mark,

    I watched The counsellor last week and is definitely one of the worst films ever.This is surprising considering its a Ridley Scott film with Brad Pitt ,Javier Bardem,Cameron Diaz,Michael Fassbender and PenÚlope Cruz.

    Yes, it's surprising that you can put together a group of talented people, but sometimes it just doesn't gel.



    Just watched Nymphomaniac vol 1&2. Load of pretentious drivel peppered with clumsy attempts at being provocative. I knew from the opening scene it was going to be a load of navel-gazing. Shia's accent is a little wayward as well.

    Vicky Cristina Barcelona

    Another Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem film - over long, characters you don't care about, wittering on about their relationship problems. Tedious.

    Yes. everything about the films screams "rubbish", but somehow it's really good.







    My submission: The Sweeney with Ray Winstone - a truly terrible film.

    Thanks, you've just spoiled my day. It's the only film I've ever seen three times at the cinema.

    David

    PS - actually I've also seen Despicable Me 2 three times at the cinema because it's shown on 'Cheap Saturday' and it's A W E S O M E

    I agree, thank you for jogging my memory.

    I knew I could contribute to this thread but couldn't remember, the film was a disaster, such a shame.

    I think Joe Dirt is way better than most Adam Sandler movies. Although, if given the opportunity, I'm sure David Spade would make many more crap movies as well.

    (I actually meant to watch The Worlds End,which is superb. Unlike the aforementioned rubbish.)
    I've just got to second this view: utter, complete, self-indulgent crap. There, that's it. I feel better! We started watching it but gave up after about 30 minutes.

    The other recent-ish (within the last few years) was 'Eat Pray Love'. The Mrs is a Julia Roberts fan but even she had had enough after about 15 minutes. It's now known as 'Stop Eject Discard' in our house. For those of you lucky enough to be unaware of the film, it's about a woman who goes on a journey to find herself. We'd given up on the poor, deluded, hateful, self-obsessed b!tch before she even got to the airport.

    "It's you! You! You're the problem, love", I found myself shouting at the screen.

    Oh dear, I'm having a flashback.... :(

    Love the play on words. Danny Dyer should be known as Danny Dire.

    I can't think of single acting role where he has excelled himself.

    I think if you are a fan of the book then the film was never going to do it justice...it's probably impossible.



    On another note....Jack Reacher.
    A massive disappointment if you are a fan of the books. One of the best examples of money overruling proper casting.

    Doom, was on ITV4 last night.

    I actually like this film, but if the books are better may need to find these and have a browse

    Recently re-watched Quantum... didn't like it the first time around but now I think it's the best of the Craig series. Old-school JB fun with an old-school JB villain. The second time around the fast edits weren't so distracting.

    But Casino Royale now seems overly-long (and I hated the updates--one minutes it's true to the book, the next it looks like MI6 is running its operation out of the Starship Enterprise), and I hated the emphasis on M in Skyfall. Glad she was killed off; hopefully Ralph Fiennes will return to the Bernard Lee mould: sending Bond off on missions and giving him a kick up the backside halfway through as required.

    Agreed. I borrowed the DVD from my daughter the other weekend and really enjoyed it

    Even liked the theme tune too............

    Noah was pretty bad

    The worst film I've seen for a long time is Faster with the Rock

    Absolute rubbish, he manages to evade many police forces across numerous states of the US whilst driving a black Chevelle, with white stripes across the roof which incidentally one minutes can outrun a new Ferrari whilst in the next scene can't escape a police car.

    I think to truly get a benchmark for rubbish you need to watch "Meet the Spartans".

    Margin Call was pretty boring. I really like Kevin Spacey but the film I felt never really took off...some of the financial terminology were suspect and just felt unreal.

    Harsh on Skyfall; for the most part it is a stylish thriller with great sets, good direction, good acting. I loved the Tube scenes.

    The script is incoherent, though I must admit. And it does peter out rather dismally (I think they ran out of money).

    I liked Quantum a lot. I especially love the opera scenes. High art! Underrated film. Quite different from Casino Royale and I'm not sure which I prefer.

    The re-make of Gone in 60 Seconds with Nicholas Cage, has to be one of the worst films ever made.
    A rubbish film with rubbish special effects featuring a rubbish car chase where all the "good" bits were CGI, totally fake.

    And it spawned the transformation of a lot of perfectly good old 1967/8 Ford Mustangs into "Eleanor" clones.
    One day it will cost a lot of money to return these cars back to how they should be.

    Well, it entertained the kids I suppose.
    But the adults spending a fortune modifying their Mustang's should have known better.

    August, Orsage County. Mrs's choice.....even she regretted it. Crap.

    the Councillor......my choice. Crap

    Lone Survivor......not exactly crap but I found it boring and slow. And I just didn't care in the end

  33. #83
    'Million ways to die in the West' was dreadfully unfunny. Also didn't like 'Under the Skin' despite Scarlett's assets on full show

    Same here, I enjoyed both of them.

    [EDIT]

    I also thought 'Million ways to die in the West' was extremely funny and even liked 'August, Osage County' and 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona'. Silly me.

    "Whitehouse Down".
    Mrs & the lad sat through it, I came home and only caught the last 15 minutes and still wanted to take my eyes out with a melon-baller.

    Watched 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' Blu-Ray with SWMBO last night, it opened interestingly enough with enough of a mildly surreal quality to give the promise that it would develop into a really good period film. Sadly, as it went on, it slowly but progressively degenerated into 'Bollocksbabble' and about 3/4 of the way through we decided we had quite enough of it!

    World War Z film and World War Z book have very few things in common: zombies and character names to mention a few. What WWZ film lacks is the intelligence, global politics and interesting narrative of the book. If you loved the book, I would imagine you'll dislike the film. I refused to pay for it and watched it once it was on Sky... It was the festering pile of rubbish I feared it would be.

    I Am Legend is a similar story.

    The Expendables was on the telly the other night. Now normally I'm up for a bit of Jason Statham nonsense, but this film was unwatchable and I switched over after 15 minutes.

    It was indeed. Shocking. The cast was hollioakes and corrie castoffs and the five minutes I watched was truly bloody awful. Even brick top from snatch couldn't save the terrible dialogue and hammy acting.
