    I dunno about critically acclaimed, but I can't stand that Notebook movie. It's annoying. Ted wasn't all that great either for all the hype it got.

    This was EXACTLY what I was going to post... except for the Ted part. :wink:

    The Notebook could've been good, but they just needed to pick ONE ending... i kept thinking 'OK, movie's over now'.... NOPE!

    The Great Gatsby, The Book Thief (I really liked the book, though) and all of those Twilight movies.

    The Departed

    Seriously, what a cop-out just to kill everyone. Totally eliminates having to actually write an ending, and I wasn't even shocked that they died. I just felt like Scorsese didn't have time to write a script where the characters had to deal with the bs they created.

    It was a remake of a Hong Kong movie called Infernal Affairs. I loved both, but Scorsese didn't have to think about anything to write it.

    Hated:

    Titanic
    Avatar
    2001 A Space Odyssey
    Tron
    Dances With Wolves
    The Social Network

    There are many more.

    Bridesmaids
    Sideways
    August Osage County -probably number 1 on my list!
    Master and Commander
    Cast Away
    Closer
    Lost in Translation

    I actually liked a lot of the other movies listed here or didn't hate them and I agree that there are two good Nicholas cage movies

    Valley Girl (ahh, college days!)
    Raising Arizona

    And I do like Con Air but not because of him.

    West Side Story. I could not help from not listening to s song that just keeps singing Maria.

    Oh man, if you are talking about the original movie, I loved it! I must have watched that 100 times...

    I watched it 110 times.

    Pulp Fiction & Fargo Didn't like them at all.

    The book: Silver Lining Playbook is definitely better than the movie. The book explained so much more. The movie would be hard to follow if you didn't read the book.

    Could not finish watching "Man with the iron fists."

    Everything with Will Farrel in it.

    I would say everything with Nicolas Cage in it but I'm pretty sure the critics hate him too and I did enjoy "Kick *kitten*" in spite of him.

    I like you.

    Nicholas Cage in Con Air wasn't so bad either...though the story itself/Malkovich was his saving grace.

    :laugh: I'm hijacking this thread. Sorry. Carry on.

    Cage's southern drawl was absolutely horrible. If I was from the south, I would have been offended.

    300: Rise of an Empire....

    when they (the main girl and main guy) did it I almost started screaming at the screen in protest for men, yes men because it whittled a story about war down to nothing more than a powerless-sex-crazed-forget-about-your-people-pathetic man :noway:


    ETA: Wow I just realized I described every U.S. politician

    Gravity.

    The cinematography was spectacular but the story was so, SO far-fetched that I just couldn't wrap my brain around it.

    America's Sweethearts. I would have demanded my money back, but my ticket was paid for by a friend. Romance comedies suck and this one is by far the worst of them all.

    Titanic. Remember this hit from the 1990's? Sure. Tried to watch. It was boring and I fell asleep.
    Memento.

    The worst of them all was Great Gatsby, which was extremely corny, the acting was terrible, the female lead role was super annoying and it also offended me as a swing dancer. XP

    I just saw these two two movies within the last month, and thought they were just terrible....

    Gangs of New York

    Silver Linings Playbook

    I really wanted to like SLP.... I am from the Philly area, love the Eagles, and the premise of the movie sounded good to me. Gangs of New York just happened to be starting when I was flipping channels..... I couldn't watch after about 20 minutes. I think if I had continued to watch I might have called it the worst critically acclaimed movie ever.

    Silver Linings Play book was terrible

    So was Place beyond the pines
