Movies We Don't Like
...and why does others simply love them? Ever get that feeling? Entertainment Weekly has two recent features (I'm not exactly sure when its dated) listing some of the movies. The first feature is Staff Confessions: The movie everyone loved but me. On their lists are Magnolia, Titanic, Notting Hill, A Beautiful Mind, Dumb and Dumber, Dances with Wolves, Donnie Darko, Jerry Maguire, Singing in the Rain, Jackass the Movie, Punch-Drunk Love, 21 Grams, Sin City, Million Dollar Baby. Of those listed I've only watched Titanic (which I thought was an ok blockbuster), A Beautiful Mind (was quite boring), Donnie Darko (which I quite like) and Jerry Maguire (another ok movie).
The second feature is the readers' pick on the great films they don't like. On the list are...Crash (I actually liked it) , English Patient, Napoleon Dynamite ( I absolutely agree....hated it), The Matrix ( I just don't get it), Lost in Translation ( Haha I was lost too), The Blair Witch Project, Theres Something About Mary, Brokeback Mountain, Pulp Fiction, Forest Gump (just ok), Ameriacn Beauty (I really liked this one) , Lord of the Rings ( Liked this one too), Mystic River( quite a disappointment...I think), E.T. (Like) Moulin Rouge (Absolutely Loved it), Mulholland Drive, Sideways and Fargo (actually liked it).
