Th fountain is movie hell for me. Day, you’re not serious are you?
yea i said i was kidding. but im serious about burton, he does get annoying.
a marathon of Adam Sandler films, Dances with Wolves, Forrest Gump and those Beethoven films (a St Bernard, Charles Grodin…aaauuuurggggh). There aren’t ANY drugs that could make me sit through that line-up.
Any remake of a great foreign film that Hollywood decided to Americanize. For instance, the Richard Gere version of Breathless. I thought it would be decent, but…
A Steven Spielberg marathon.
sitting through forest gump or any other piece of shit dumb downed, poorly directed and cliche ridden film that is put out in all theatres around the states but good films such as the edge of heaven or let the right one in or synecdoche, new york can’t been seen in but a few venues because this is what the majority of the u.s. population enjoys!
I really hate those adhesive stickers they use to package DVD’s. There’s always some little piece left on the DVD cover that I just can’t peel off. It reduces me to tears.
nothing to do with this thread but I’d like to agree with Soybeen on the adhesive stickers and strips. My copy of La Strada has ripped plastic on the spine from peeling off the security strip. Fuck that strip! Oh, and a lot of people’s version of movie hell sounds like a great saturday to me. A Spielberg marathon? Sign me up. To each their own.
Consistently telling yourself to give the latest piece of abject multiplex ooze a chance, and always. Always… wishing you never bothered. I’ll be giving Valkyrie a miss.
Michael Bay, the worst living man (worst living woman is obviously Anne Coulter)
I’m not a big Bay fan but putting him in the same category as Coulter!? Pearl Harbor cannot possibly be that bad, can it?
forrest gump, or anything with tom hanks
anything with will smith
anything with orlando bloom
Swedish police movies. If you haven’t seen Beck, Wallander or Van Veeteren you don’t know hell. Trust me!
A Peckinpah marathon.
Prozac Nation. Palindromes. More than 20 minutes of any Kevin Smith film – I like the guy, but his writing should be confined to a high school creative writing assignment. Ug.
A film with Jim Carry and Jessica Alba that is Critically acclaimed.
A double feature of LOST IN TRANSLATION and Haggis’ CRASH.
Having to sit thru a double bill of Godard’s Tout va Bien and Weekend.
A triple feature of August Rush, the first scene in Night on Earth, and a collage of Jar-Jar clips from Episode I. On repeat forever.
Also, Paul Ruebens is in the audience.
@ Yves: She’s a woman? That changes everything.
@ Alonso: agreed. Blaxploitation is the pits, pretty much.
It would be an endless film that combines the worst elements of action, comedy, and chick flick. It will be pure generic cliche torture and I will be saying to myself how exactly it is going to end…..but it never does……..
Brun After Reading
and any attempt to remake a Hitchcock film
The reel of Empire Carpet commercials that is a little bit out of focus.
Grease. I’m saying nothing more…
anything by Michelangelo Antonioni. I don’t think i ever finished any of his movies except L’Avventurra. The Passenger, L"eclipse, BlowUp were all snooze fest movies for me.
I will interpret this another way. Vertigo (probably my favorite movie of all time) being shown on a 13 inch TV. I am surrounded by teenagers on their cell phones. They keep complaining loudly about how bad the movie is. They then start talking about their favorite movies which include the filmography of Michael Bay. I now cannot even hear Hermann’s score let alone hear the dialogue. A tall guy chewing gum obnoxiously comes in and sits right in front of me.
That is movie hell. Not watching a bad movie, but being unable to enjoy a great one.
Any film using hand held queasy cams and quick editing techniques that ruin films like Quantam of Solace or the Bourne movies or the third Mission Impossible. Any lunatic director who does this oh-so-trendy, artsy-fartsy crap just to fit in with the current mindless mass style of the day, and ruins the enjoyment of action scenes (and even talky scenes with the constantly bobbling image) and the contributions of stunt men and gives the trusting patron a headache ought to be forced to join a deeply pock-faced Barbara Steele in the depths of the castle for a good freaking out.
Crash and Sin City, followed by a year long showing of Top Gun with close ups of Kelly McGillis’s face.
i fucking hate that movie…
Will Ferrell, Star Wars
