ON MOVIES ~ What's Wrong With Me?..

Feature Presentation...
MONDAY MOVIE MEME


Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section. If you don’t have a blog, just share your response in the Comments section.

This week's movie topic is all about Popular Movies You Hated...

Ever get excited to see some movie the whole world has been gushing about, only to discover that you thought it was a dud? Not only are you completely annoyed that the movie didn't meet your expectations, but you don't have anyone else to complain to because you're the only one who didn't like it. Lonely days. Well, here are a few that Molly just didn't get that lots of others loved. Share on your blog movies you didn't see what all the fuss was about and link back here at The Bumbles. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!

I think that is the first time EVER that we have not had overlapping answers. The answers for this week should be interesting...

Forgetfulone said...

I also didn't like any of those movies you mentioned! I put three different ones in my post. http://forgetfulone.blogspot.com/2010/02/monday-movie-meme.html

Heather said...

I love North By Northwest and Shakespeare in Love! My selections can be found HERE.

gnoegnoe said...

YES, The English Patient! I totally agree! And... I even had to watch it a SECOND TIME as part of a bachelor(ette?) party... :(

And I really like Juliette Binoche as an actress, but still.

Another movie that was really popular in the European arthouses that I hated was Kieslowski's La Double Vie de Veronique. Brrr.

Susan said...

Can't watch The English Patient because of Ralph Fiennes. He just creeps me out because of the Amon Goen character in Schindler's List.

Love Unforgiven. Shakespeare in Love was just okay for me. I'm not a big Gwynnie fan. Haven't seen any of the others, but I would probably like North by Northwest just because of Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint.

This is a great question and sure to draw different responses. The English Patient is one of my favorite movies. I've always thought I was the odd man out for liking it. LOL

My response is up.

All good choices, I copied one :) I could have gone on for quite a while with this list, but limited myself to 5.

Penny said...

I love superbad. I don't know why..it's one of those movies I watch everytime I see it on HBO.

I hated: English Patient
Austin Powers (all of them)
E.T
and
THE NOTEBOOK.
Can't stand it!!

The Gal Herself said...

I agree with you on Shakespeare in Love. And came up with some others, to boot.

jehara said...

I haven't seen most of these movies on the list, but I did like Shakespeare in Love.
I usually don't even go see big, blockbuster movies because they don't appeal to me in the first place.

Lulu said...

My entry for this week.

Sheila (Bookjourney) said...

I feel like I have answered this question some place before so forgive me if I said this here but my answer is Fargo.

Blah.

Seriously.

Janet said...

Avatar
Shutter Island

boliyou said...

We had a couple the same, and I agree with most of yours (except Austin Powers, which I thought was cute).

I did like Shakespeare in love--and I refuse to watch Austin Powers anything *shiver*

Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

Twilight.

I hadn't read the books, so I didn't know that it was so teenagery & ridiculous. I like my vampires like Lestat & Angel, LOL.

Julie said...

I still don't understand why people were so crazy about Moulin Rouge. Fargo, Sideways, Lost In Translation...all dull.

Kathy said...

Here's my answer...

There is only one on your list that I disagree with - Shakespeare In Love. Sorry, but I enjoyed the movie. I agree with all the rest - wish I'd skipped them.

Cerrin said...

For me the one I am always getting yelled at because I cant stand it is Forest Gump. I watched it in college and would have walked out but it was a free movie I hated it. I have been forced to watch it many times because friends insist I just havent given it a chance. and I truly do hate that movie with the silly feather floating arround ugg.
And well Gone with the Wind...not a big fan of it either.

An Eerie Tapestry said...

Needless to say I liked all the ones you'd hated that I seen, but I guess I just like anything. The only one I could think of that I hated and most people loved was Jurassic Park.

Izzybella said...

I know this blog was forever ago, but Pulp Fiction. I hated it. Like viscerally truly loathed it.
