LQ's Question of the Day

Name a movie everyone else you know liked, but just didn't really impress you.

Ok, at the risk of losing all "cool" points, I really sort of hated "Rudy." I know everyone else in America loved it, but I just couldn't get into it. Maybe it's because I don't really care about football. It might have been the company - sometimes that influences how much I like a movie. Perhaps I was just in a bad mood that day. (Though I remember the pizza being ok, so I don't think that's it.)

I met the "real" Rudy several years ago (long after I'd seen the movie) and he seemed like a decent guy. It's not like I've got something against him personally.

But throughout the entire film I was just thinking, "well, this is 2 hours of my life I'll never get back."


Property Day 2 today. You'll be doing a public service by leaving entertaining comments for me to read later. And you'll be earning valuable "saint" points.

Just leave a comment, ok?

Back in 4 hours. Or so.

Comments:
Punch Drunk Love. I hated that movie.

And, TV show: Firefly. I'm sorry, I loved Buffy just as much as anyone, but Firefly was boring. I even watched the movie to give it another shot. The movie wasn't entirely boring, but it was pointless.
 
Napolean Dynamite. If that wasn't the worlds stupidest movie I don't know what was. And EVERYONE liked it and was quoting the damn thing.
 
Napoleon Dynamite is one of Mr. Q's all time favorites.

We watched portions of it in Transmission of Wealth (you're right, it *is* completely irrelevant to the subject. The prof would try just about anything to get us to show up on Friday mornings.)

I liked it, but I can see where people wouldn't.
 
The English Patient! Just die already!

And Memoirs of a Geisha, the book and the movie.
 
The Crying Game. Maybe EVERYONE didn't like it but it was so many good reviews. Not only did I not really get into the movie but I COMPLETELY missed the point of the movie. The day before I had a class discussing how people sometimes have different parts than their genetics say. I thought THAT was what happened and not the simpler explaination of it being a guy who loved to dress as a woman. I over thought the problem.
 
Moulin Rouge. GACK! I tried to get up and walk out of the theater, but my ex thought it would be embarassing and made me sit through it.
 
Wow - good answers!

E.Spat - I had forgotten how much I hated that movie until you brought it up. (Also, how pleased was I that EC's stepmom let her watch that 2 summers ago???? Yeah, not at all.)

Brian - I remember hating that one too! Or maybe I was just angry because everyone thought it was great and I didn't get it.
