A few more to live without

Posted on February 9, 2009. Filed under: Movies to miss | Tags: |

Over the weekend I was reminded (via one of those E4 100 greatest countdown thingys) of a few more films that were utterly disappointing.  To spare you the same fate…

  1. Breakfast at Tiffanys. I just don’t get what part of that film is supposed to be good.
  2. Love Story. Yes it gaves us that iconic piece of music, but that’s it.
  3. The Life Aquatic.  It’s like The Royal Tennenbaums, but weirder, if that’s possible.
  4. The Ninth Gate. A very strange film I watched late one night. I still don’t know what it’s about.
  5. 2001: A space Odyssey. Why? Seriously, why? There’s a big black block, a baby in the moon and a psychadelic eyeball….what?!
  6. Kingdom of Heaven. It just never got going.
  7. Austin Powers. I know people love it, but I just didn’t think it was that great, for much the same reason that I don’t like…
  8. …American Pie
  9. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.  Ir’s a clever concept and it has its moments, but in general its not worth the time.
  10. Meet Joe Black. I really liked this film, right until the cop-out Hollywood ending.  It sold out for an implausible happily ever after when it was almost brilliant.

They’re the ones that come immediately to mind….I’ll do a quick list of movies not to miss soon too, but I tend to want to waffle on about them for a while…it’ll probably turn int my own 1001 list. Watch this space. *It did check out the pages*

*Update* I’ve now turned this into a Page to counter the Movies to see list.
