Only things I don't agree with are Gladiator being in the "Meh" catergory. Gladiator is one of my favorite movies of all time. Although some of the special effects don't hold up as well on blu-ray as they looked in theaters. I'm curious what you didn't like about it?

And I also really enjoyed the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It was a slow, heavily dialogue driven movie and with subtitles I know it doesn't appeal to everyone. Its not a movie I would jump to re-watch again... but I will definitely watch the David Fincher remake, because he is among my top 5 favorite directors.


Gladiator: Part of me is bitter that it beat Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon for Best Picture and another part of me thinks it is a very overrated film. The art direction is plain bad and the plot is ridiculous. Some of the fight scenes were good and Russel Crowe did a good job (though I wouldn't say Best Actor) but overall the movie just doesn't do it for me.

Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: Unfortunately I watched this immediately after reading the book which I thought was amazing so everything was fresh in my mind and I was in nitpick mode when I watched it. I just feel the film gets most of the relationship between the characters wrong and too many plot points were glossed over. I too am looking forward to David Fincher's version which will hopefully be much better. He is one of my favorite directors as well.

Oh and by the way Fincher's version will not be considered a remake, it is a new adaption of the book not based on the Swedish version at all.

How could you call Blazing Saddles a bad movie?

It's only one of the funniest movies ever made.

I stopped at Ghostbusters 2, but then I kept going and shot myself in the face at Caddyshack.  And for some reason I still kept going and I missed my face on the next shot and hit the ceiling when I saw Blazing Saddles.

Ghostbusters is one of my top ten favorite films but the sequel, in my opinion (of course) has no room anywhere within my top 500, great actors aside, and the funny toaster pop scene, it didn't do what it should have done. 

CADDYSHACK!

Only my opinion I might add, and 100+ movies is amazing for that period of time.  I may have watched the same, but probably not.  I had the fun chance to spend six years during high school and college at a movie/music store so I own and have seen way too may films.  I own way too many and I own way too many that my girlfriend wants to keep that I can't stand, sigh.

Almost forgot to mention, overall I think you have a good taste in movies.  Only a few I did not agree on. 



Am i the only person who liked The Last Action Hero?? i loved that movie as a kid

Also was it Hitchcocks masterpiece 1960 Psycho, or was it that bad remake 1998 Psycho with Vince Vaughn

No. Will get around to it on DVD some time.

Make sure you do,if you like superhero movies that is!Cause Thor is one of the best sh movies ever.And The Avengers is also coming

Seriously? I just saw it last week and thought it was very meh. The effects were really, REALLY awesome, but the story, characters and acting were all pretty average and predictably cliche.

I totally agree with your descriptions, especially the one referring to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. You've pretty much presented everything I disliked about that movie. Hope Fincer's version is better. And boy, do you sure watch a lot of movies!

BLAZING SADDLES BAD? UGH I'm glad this wasn't at the beginning of your thread or I might have stopped reading it in disgust!
