The movies you hated most or were most disappointed in
1 The Eagle......there just couldn't be a more horrid movie. Just insulting
3 Schindler's List
4 Brokeback Mountain ( I appreciate that they swung for the fences but they fell over in the attempt like Babe Ruth did at times)
5 some of those Steve Martin movies like Lonely Guy
6 The Graduate
7 2001 A Space Oddessy
8 American Grafitti
10 The English Patient....Shakespeare in Love...they're like the same movie
JFK is very competitive with these films.
I think Avatar is the most watchable of these films despite the absurdness
Also I think it's worth noting Godfather 3 was nominated best picture. It lost to Dances With Wolves. Goodfellas was also nominated that year. Godfather 3 is a fine film in a vacuum. But it was like an A - or B+ film trying to follow on the heels of two A ++++++++++++ films. It was like trading Michael Jordan for Wally Szerbiak or Dale Ellis. Those guys were good. They played in an all star game. But you can't do that
A few disagreements: 4 star scale:
The Graduate: ***
American Grafitti: ***1/2
Godfather 3: **
The English Patient: *** (I know this diminishes my credibility)
Schindler's List: ***
Of the others in your that I have seen:
Sideways was very disappointing -- didn't enjoy it at all but not near my worst 10.
2001, yeah -- pretty bad.
Steve Martin after The Jerk -- not so good.
Some of my worst:
Last year at Marienbad (should been Marienterrible)
My Dinner with Andre (inconceivably bad)
Godfather 3 (not the worst film, but most disappointing)
Rocky Horror Picture Show (sorry)
Top Gun (insanely predictable; but it was Cruise's constant pandering smile that got me)
Color of Money: Terribly disappointing and thought Cruise and Newman were awful (Newman got an oscar and BTW I don't hate all Cruises movies).
