OK.

No, sorry, I can't get my head around that concept.

Did anyone in this thread mention The Room? That's about as bad as a movie can get.

One of the funniest films I've ever seen.

This line and "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" get quoted a lot around my house. I agree. The movie is funny because it was intended to be serious. Then after the audiences started reacting to it, the producer/director/writer/star decided that he would market it as a black comedy which itself is funnier than the movie.

If you think Scent of a Woman was a terrible movie, you've lived a blessed life. Granted, it wasn't a fantastic movie, but it also failed to be a terrible movie.

Not really - I've just learned to avoid movies I'm pretty certain are going to annoy me. ;) And I like Al Pacino. Just couldn't sit through that one.

Okay this is weird. Me, who loves movies like Outbreak, Sweeney Todd, and The Patriot. I was horrified during Watership Down. I don't get it! It wasn't even that nasty or anything, it was just...disturbling!

I don't know why, but animations creep me out more than actual preformances. I pay such close attention to what the actor is doing or the makeup ("I wonder how they made the cut look so clean." or "How'd the stuntman do that?"), that I don't pay attention to what's happening. I get so lost in special effects, this was the first time I payed enough attention to get grossed out. And it was awful. Worse than Ishtar in my opinion.

I remember that I saw the movie, but I do not recall much of it. I think I felt that it missed the charm of the book. But it didn't occur to me to be creeped out. Interesting reaction.

Watership Down is disturbing. Bunnies have apocalyptic visions of doom and get trapped in a Fascist colony! Bunnies get poisoned, and ripped to pieces by dogs. Eeek. It's certainly not a cartoon for the little ones. 8)

It's a very faithful adaptation of the book, and has the same haunting sadness.

To this day whenever I see wild rabbits feeding in a meadow on a summer's evening, I think, 'aww ... they're at silflay.' :)

To be vaguely on topic, I watched Love, Actually the other night and it wasn't quite as bad as I had remembered it being. Still glad I never actually paid to see it though. :lol:

Actually on topic: Journey 2 the Mysterious Island. How can a movie featuring giant lizards, volcanoes, lost gold, earthquakes, Nautilus and starring Dwayne Johnson, Michael Caine and that pretty girl be so utterly boring?

Although the miniature elephants were adorable. :)
Impressive. Every word in that sentence was wrong.
