two-timing myspace, but who cares?

ilms i really hated.

surprisingly, there are very few in existance. I've been meaning to blog this for a while now, and finally, here it is.

1. PEARL HARBOR. walked out, little over halfway through. i don't really think this needs an explanation, but i'll give it a go: michael bay can do good non-historical action, like THE ROCK or ARMEGEDDON. this? PLUS BEN AFFLECK?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? yeeeee. nooooooo no no no no no. probably my most violent reaction to a piece of media, ever during my time on this earth (save for the severe beating i gave to my brother and jen after THAT GODDAMNED RICKY MARTIN VIDEO WITH THE CANDLE WAX. these things, plus jane's addiction make me downright homicidal.)

2. THE LAST SAMURAI. walked out just as tom cruise makes his surprise "visit" at the end. so annoyed. this was a film i had to see for a contemporary film class my last semester at the U. i had been seeing ACTUAL SAMURAI FILMS for a good, straight year and a half and then this. kurasawa was heaving in his grave after this one, seriously.

3. THE LIFE AND TIMES OF DAVID GALE. this is just one of those IN GENERAL sort of dislikes (i really try to be a bit more explanatory when i say i hate a film, so this is a big cop out) but i remember thinking, is this the best these decent actors could do? the story just made me really bored and annoyed and i felt very dumb after sitting through it. then i told my friend nik about hating it and she got mad at me because she really loved it.

hey, i had tons of professors say they hated a bunch of shit that i thought was classic genius. but really, some things just don't jive with people. i'm always willing to hear someone else's film rants too. it's probably my favorite thing to talk about!

that said, the floor is open. anyone want to dish on YOUR most hated films? i'd love to hear it! Or favorite ones, for those who are not into the whole negativity thing.......
